Re: CoVid-19

My random thoughts: The COVID data models being considered by the MN government need to be shared with the public As the weather warns, the ability of the MN government agencies to be effective with recommendations and enforcement of social distancing policies will wane I believe a majority of MN pe...

Re: Goalies moving on to next level

Goalies moving on is a difficult and long road as compared to skaters due to less roster spots.
Example: Charlie Glocker was Brimsek winner and the USA Today National HS goalie of the year last season. He is still pursuing a college offer.

Re: Turning Points

I get it. Nothing is perfect. 7AA uses QRF and there seems to be controversy over that as well.

Re: Turning Points

ESPG:

I hear what you are saying, but still trying to understand what parameters would be used to seed.

- Pre-season expectations
- Games in January & February
- etc.

Would there have been a difference in seeding for 4AA this year?

Re: Section 2AA 20-21

Regarding Bantam’s moving directly to varsity at Tonka, only 6 in past three seasons have made the jump with less each subsequent year.

Re: Section 2AA 20-21

With Snuggerud going to NTDP, my 2AA pre-season rankings are as follows:

1) EP
2) PL
3) TONKA
4) HF
5) CHASKA
6) SHAKO
7) CHAN
8) NP

Westy, any thoughts on this order?

December 2014; Schwan's Cup Gold Bracket - Day 3 The team I formerly coached was playing at the SuperRink in the Bronze Division of the Schwan's Cup.

Re: Playoff format thought???

For any form of double elimination tournament, the regular season max game count would need to be reduced due to need for recovery time needs for players.

Maybe a 2 game total goal series for teams that make section finals, like the old WCHA.

Return 5 defensemen 2) PL - incoming junior class that were Bantams is 2019 will be the catalyst for this team. Return the top goalie in the section 3) Tonka - will likely be a sen...

Re: Walk Off GWGs from Sections/Trnys last decade

The Lagerback goal will go down as the #1 goal/event in Tonka Hockey history. Had it not occurred, 2018 state seeding would have likely looked like this: 1) Edina - (26-2-0); both losses to Tonka with 1 win over Tonka at home 2) East - (23-2-3) beat Tonka on the road 3) STA - (25-2-1) loss and tie t...
