I've never been a guy to tell you that I told you so, but I said after the Marshall lost that East would be just fine. They had the same record as the year before and Randolph was at home in a white lab coat cooking up all kinds of smoking potions. He is looking towards the sky and screaming.... "It...

It's fine if kids/parents want to open enroll at Hermantown for hockey, but getting all these players from a metro area of 150,000 people means that they should be in AA. By your definition, everyone in the twin cities metro should be AA. And, why not include "bedroom" communities like Orono and De...

i'd like someone other than hermantown to win for consistencies sake alone. i have not seen/heard much on what would happen if they win one, but it'd be interesting to see if they'd still be single A if they won one or two out of the last six. what is the official stance of the school/ Plante, beca...

I agree with Ranier that the ship has sailed long ago on the "recruiting" argument. All programs do it to some extent (at least the good ones). It is no longer about your community it is "what is best for my kid". That is the way society is today. No loyalty and people climbing over the backs of ot...

District 16 has teams that do not have a A or AA teams and play in the B1 division for playoffs and play some A teams during the year is that normal for the rest of the state. No, it's not normal in the rest of the state but it makes a lot of sense in Disrict 16. There are a lot of smaller, rural t...

I respect their talent and skill but I don't respect the way they are doing it. I feel the same the way. i feel like if you polled 100 random HS hock...

So the "Soviet Union" dominated the Blue Jackets 7-0? Maybe section 7 will be a one sided affair after all!! :lol: I had to laugh when I read this. A lot of people up here call them the "Evil Empire." It's actually a reference to the Yankees and getting all of the top Free Agents, but I think Presi...

Just wondering what is the exact meaning of "recruiting" when it comes to the MSHSL and Minnesota high school hockey? As far as I'm aware the rules against recruiting only apply to the coaching staff and school administration. If this is correct then parents (and current players) "getting the word ...

Great Article. Marshall deserves a lot of credit for moving up and there is a lot of buzz around that program up here now. Watch for them to continue to build every year like Flaherty said. I really had to laugh when I read this: Coaches Mike Randolph (East), Kevin Smalley (Denfeld) and Bruce Plante...

Exactly. All opinions are certainly good and welcomed. That said, I just don't see myself spending time on a message board for hockey in another state giving thoughts on how they should do things. Every state is different and has different dynamics. What's the point? And how would I even know what ...

Thought for a second "cake eater anthem" was referencing Duluth East but guess I am wrong!! They called them that back in the 80's, but doesn't really fit anymore. Not much of an economy in Duluth anymore. Duluth's economy these days is a heck of a lot better than it was in the 80s...compare median...

Re: Greenway on the rise?

I see Greenway looks pretty good by their record. It has been a long time since the fans in Coleraine have had anything to cheer about. The last time they created this much excitement was when Gino Guyer played back in 2000-2001. I still say the Hawks and Blue Jackets are far better then the Raider...

The problem with HS and Youth Girls Hockey is apathy around the state. Co-ops only make sense when a community does not have the economic capacity, nor the passion for hockey to support a strong boys program. It's really that simple. If you have a strong boys program and a weak girls program, you a...
