Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

Regardless your stance on this issue none of us will have a final say on this. It will fall in the hands of the MSHSL. The Star Trib has an article up tonight about summer which looks very restricted and the predictions on Fall Sports. Its late in the month of May we are lucky hockey is a winter spo...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

I am sure its been mentioned But since Rainier and crew started the Hermantown Thread in Jan of 2018 The Hawks have not won Class A 3 years running is it the new "Rainier Curse" on the Hawks 3/27 defense finally stopped carpetbombing the forum with inane comments. 3/28 ClassAGuy started a string of...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Look at how bad Denfeld was outshot. Final score? They played lockdown defense and hoped for a bounce. That is all it was. Once h scored it was over. No one else in class A matters. The same team will be in the c-chip game the next 10 years. Mahtomedi was Outshot badly too as was Greenway. Thats ho...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Yes they will be it none of that will matter. There will be the same team in class A c-chip in next 10 years. I think Denfeld beats them those boys like Greenway a few years ago don't seem afraid. Maybe I am wrong but I like Denfeld to beat them last years young kids they hung tough with older HAwk...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Rainer, it’s clear and obvious that Hermantown is killing hockey in the north. Maybe, and a distant maybe, a miracle like 2019 Greenway will happen again but Hermantown has a clear advantage that no other team in the state has and it’s obvious and a disgrace to the game of hockey because it is kill...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

I honestly don't have a team I openly root for. I like how Class A has grown. I hate The Yankees but love to watch them get beat even if the Astros cheated. I am not chicken-Hawk fan Rainier I find it comical that Pat Andrews took over touting he would take them to the next level and they have yet t...

Just a few questions for you: 1. Were you at the A tourney this year, ClassAGuy, or did you almost fall off your couch you were so excited by the huge attendance on TV? 2. How does one get so into Class A hockey without having a team to root for? 3. Will your son Joey be coming back for his senior ...

So you know Class A very well going back the past twenty years, at least, and your name is ClassAGuy, yet you don't have a favorite Class A team?

No dog in the fight just like Class A \ Hoping to see Hibbing figure it out and get good enough to be the best instead of whine about another team. I could go at you all day because your whining about if a team gets good move up I disagree with. I don't care if kids move in... They use to at Hibbing...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Wait a minute. So Hermantown made the c-chip game this year with a “drought” of two years prior. Let’s look at previous 11 years. Hermantown in c-chip game 9 out of 11 years. Yes the same team in the c-chip game every year9 out of 11. That is not what class A hockey was made for. I’ll say it again ...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Sorry but class AA will always be the big boy tourney, the tourney to show the best team in state, Class A will always be akin to kissing your cousin. Teams can make the class A and scream all they want from the top of the class A hill. Telling everyone who will listen tgat they are the best in the...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

The attendance argument made ZERO sense. Yes, you are right that 3 of the 4 in the Final 4 were regular teams that have been in it a lot. Thus their Fan Bases have always been there and not set records!! They set the Class A Record because the talent in the Final 4 was better and deeper. I am sorry ...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

So you'd like to see STA and BSM move back to A? HM has even fewer students than Hermantown. I can't believe your Pioneers are screwing HS hockey fans out of a better A tournament by selfishly playing in AA. :D Hoping Hibbing can get back to glory! I'm not. I'm hoping small schools like HM will tak...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Warroad finished fourth, but would most likely romp through this field. In that respect I would think it would be less entertaining, though Wednesday games would be more competitive. Here’s a shot at seeding: 1. Warroad 2. Delano 3. Denfeld 4. Alexandria 5. Monticello I could see an argument for De...
