Re: Cathedral vs Greenway

Difficult as the (correctly called) Greenway no-goal and SCC goal replay sequence was, I thought the real turning point in this game was Greenway's inability to do much with the major penalty in the 2nd . . . Yep. By the time the major occurred, Raiders already looked gassed. They could not sustain...

Re: Greenway Raiders

Such a fun team to watch. Rooting hard for them today like everyone else. IMO, the class A tournament has saved the tournament this year along with a couple recent tournaments. Fun hockey to watch once you get to Friday along with great story lines. I would agree, especially this year. Folks talk a...

Re: AA QF: #5 Duluth East vs. #4 St. Thomas Academy

Not sure why Randolph broke up the Jones-Donovan-Jeannette line after the 1st period of last week's Andover game. Although it seems that Randolph was searching all year for a wing combination to best complement Donovan, I think he may have 'mad scientisted' himself out the best combo Donovan had all...

Re: Most Devastating Tourney Final Loss

I'd say East in 2011. Amazing back and forth game: triple OT. And the goalie probably should have covered up the game winner but it just slide past him and Rau was able to knock it in on off a couple weird bounces. 1978 Rapids vs Edina East. Rapids won the game in 1st OT when the puck went through ...

Re: Class A QF: #5 Delano vs. #4 Greenway

Frank is an absolute gem. Just an idea. . .focus on your D1 team, or satisfy your man crush and go coach Greenway. What purpose does it serve a D1 coach to go on a rambling dissertation about a below average HS hockey team? What an asinine comment. Ya mean the dude can't have some fun, or you can't...

Re: Duluth East at Andover, Section 7AA Final

That’s not the point. The argument is the Section Final in 7AA should be played at a neutral site (or at least rotated to SCSU rink) every other year...and there’s no objective reason not to schedule it this way...as long as Andover, ER, Cambridge, St Francis & Forest Lake...constitute the numerica...

At risk of getting hockeyDJ going again, but did anyone hear the Elk River guy call into KFAN to ask Lou Nanne about if it was fair that the section final is at Amsoil when East keeps winning?

Re: Duluth East at Andover, Section 7AA Final

Or Duluth Marshall could improve to a top 4 team in 7AA. I’ve heard a rumor that Andover might get moved and replaced with Brainerd. That would make for one hell of a semifinal Saturday. Brainerd is a growing hockey community and has the stability at head coach to be relevant for a long time. They ...

Those of you that are applauding Pagestat for getting the seedings right need to take a step back and look at the big picture. It’s pretty much unanimous here that the seedings make no sense, yet they match Pagestat. That tells you pretty much everything you need to know about Pagestat. PageStat na...

Re: Duluth East at Andover, Section 7AA Final

East won the game on an awesome play finished by its best player. Do you think the refs live in the basement of Amsoil? Is Randolph secretly providing booze & hookers to the dudes? It's insulting to think the refs are in the pockets of East personnel. I'm saying if you're an Andover player you don't...

Re: Duluth East at Andover, Section 7AA Final

. . . 2. Star power. Production on Ryder Donovan's inevitable breakaways is the easiest way for East to put goals on the board; Ricky Lyle has been on a playoff tear, too. But I think Paine might be the biggest key, especially because last season's comeback ran through Luke LaMaster bombs from the ...
