Re: People wanting to stay A... about single A teams recruiting

I like the three class system!!! You play 25 regular scheduled games. You have to play each section opponent at least once, each team in your conference once, so that may have you playing a team twice at this point. The rest is for rivalry games or your allotted games to play up or down to get you ...

Re: People wanting to stay A... about single A teams recruiting

I know for the Northern teams that may be a small issue so maybe it's some ratio? (like 80% of your games must be at your level) Outside of conference play, you get 3 games to play up/down. Don’t like it? Then change classes. This dynamic just makes zero sense. I would prefer 0 games, but 3 seems l...

Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

Yes -

All good ideas you added. Good point on the whistles for changes but perhaps change one or the other (icing or offside) for squirts and both for PW on up. Seem like easy changes that can add a lot of ice time to every game.

Re: People wanting to stay A... about single A teams recruiting

Instituting a Class placement policy based on D1 commits would be a non-starter with MSHSL and I would have to agree. Too many ongoing changing dynamics within that process with verbal vs NLI, decommits, transfers, players leave for juniors, etc. But you lost me on the whole recruiting part. First y...

Re: A Rankings for 1/26/20

Gentry v Johnson will be 🔥🔥. With Mahtomedi back on track, this is likely a battle for the 2 seed. Will be interesting to see which style prevails - Run and gun or physicality.

Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

I'm a bit late on this, but some ideas: 1) Implement touch-up offside at all levels. Too much time is wasted on a rule that isn't even present at the higher levels. The idea that it forces teams to regroup and learn puck control is moot. That is necessary with touch up as well, and I would argue tha...

After weeks of stability near the top of the rankings, we finally had a significant shakeup thanks to one of the most exciting games of the regular season.

Re: Single A Top 20 12/29/2019

These rankings have Gentry Academy far too low. I completely agree with QRF. Gentry’s best wins are by one goal over Tartan, SPA (x2), and Rochester Century. Their losses are to TRF (1st game, but still) and St. Louis Park. You could convince me that they belong around 9th, but no higher. Gentry’s ...

Re: Jackson Blake

I hope the MSHSL goes back to a "play where you live" model. So if a kid open enrolls to another HS they can't play Varsity sports? Minnesota was at the forefront of open enrollment so I don't see that even being legal. Nope, just still "play where you live". If you want to open-enroll at George Ba...

The question was relative to the Steel’s comment and the USHL being an option. No chance he’s ready for that and it just adds more lunacy to the situation.
YHH is treating it like the Lindros affair. Ridiculous.
