Cloquet is a rival, but I like to see northern teams take it to the cities teams. Minnetonka has been off the radar for some years now it seems.<br><br>PS-Why does CEC play the 2nd rate (IMHO) teams from the cities. Rapids and East play the best, like Jefferson, Edina, Eden Prairie and Elk River.<br><br>Perhaps there isn't room and these teams are already locked in. To CEC's credit I will say the White Bear Lake game is a good one. <p></p><i></i>

1st Tier schools

I think Cloquet tries to play the best teams that they can- just like anyone else. The system is a little self serving in that the top teams like to play each other and it leaves very little room for anyone else. <br><br>The conference schedule plays a HUGE role as well. Elk River and Eden Prairie only have so many games to give.<br><br>My question is just how many "top tier" programs are out there. I think you'd be hard pressed to come up with any more then 10 in any GIVEN year.<br><br>So, after the first top seven for that season, Cloquet is just as well off playing teams like Minnetonka, Maple Grove, Burnsville, etc.<br><br> <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p100.ezboard.com/bmnhs.showUserP ... >Bart82</A> at: 11/30/05 1:33 pm<br></i>

Cloquet

I dont know much about minnetonka or where this game is being played. However, I give the edge to Cloquet. They have one line that can do a ton of damage and a great goaltender, probably the best in the state. That combination makes C-E-C dangerous in any game. If this game is in Cloquet, they will have a huge advantage, they have some of the best fans around. I don't care where this game is being played, I say C-E-C 4, Minnetonka 1 <p></p><i></i>

I know they play WBL next Friday, Dec 9th at home... I think that if you look at it CEC plays some tougher teams this season... they are my pick out of 7AA.<br><br>The SLinger<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :hat --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/pimp.gif ALT=":hat"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p100.ezboard.com/bmnhs.showUserP ... slinger</A> at: 12/1/05 11:55 am<br></i>

I think Cloquet will do well against these better teams. (White Bear, Edina, Blaine) I think Cloquet will take the Skippers 5-2. Tyler Johnson with 2 goals. Reid Ellingson with 22 saves. It hurts to have three senior impact players out with Steve Mldoznyiec (F), Jake Anderson (F) and senior stud Dylan Roy (D). <p></p><i></i>

cloquet will avenge their loss to grand rapids with a 6-3 victory over minnetonka. cloquet will get goals by tyler johnson, jason syrett, sever lundquist, and kyle olson. ellingson will be solid with about 20-25 saves. <p></p><i></i>

Should be a great game in Cloquet. Minnetonka is a good club but will not get the biscuit past the brick wall of Cloquet. Ill say 3-0 Cloquet. Shots 30-25 in favor of CEC. Tyler Johnson with 2 tallies and Jason Syrett with the clincher. <p></p><i></i>

Should be a good game. Should be a pretty full house for the home opener. As I predicted early--- Cloquet 5<br> --- Minnetonka 2<br>Tyler Johnson 2 Goals<br>Sever Lundquist 1 Goal<br>Riley Roe 1 Goal<br>Kyle Olson 1 Goal<br>Reid Ellingson 20-25 Saves<br> <p></p><i></i>

Cloquet vs. Minnetonka

Post by slapshot33 » Fri Dec 02, 2005 3:00 pm

Minnetonka looks to bounce back after a disappointing game and terrible 3rd period against Maple Grove on Tuesday. <br><br>The edge goes to Cloquet who defeated the Skippy's last year at the Pagel Center. The CRC should be rockin' in their home opener.... <br><br>Prediction: Cloquet 4 - Skippers 3 <p></p><i></i>

Wow! I really thought CEC would come out flying. Any details on the game. The shots are even, but was the game play really? I'm surprised by this result. <p></p><i></i>

Surprise?

Post by Bart82 » Sat Dec 03, 2005 12:02 am

GR19,<br><br>This result is not surprising to some of us in the Twin Cities. I'm more of a "Northwest Suburban" guy but I saw Tonka scrimmage up in Elk River a few weeks ago and I thought that there was a lot of promise there.<br><br>This idea that Tonka was a "2nd Tier" metro school I thought was a bit off [see my earlier post] as I think there are only a handful of "stud teams" a year and then you can throw the next 20 in a barrel on any given night. <br><br> <p></p><i></i>

Interesting about Minnetonka. Last time I recall them having a really good team was 1995. That year Rapids got as high as #3 in the state and Minnetonka was #1. I agree with your statement about the top 20. I think teams like Rapids, CEC, East, Apple Valley, and Minnetonka would probably have close games but sometimes one team gets some good bounces and runs away with a game. I assume Minnetonka had some rebounds and nice deflections to get the puck past Ellingson. That was GR's strategy according to the coaches comments in the paper and it worked. <p></p><i></i>

GR 19,<br><br>I think you're right. Minnetonka had great teams in the 80s and 90s and they have been "off the radar" since that time. A couple of good teams - but never great. <br><br>As I said, they had a nice little team when I saw them up in Elk River and they capable of putting the puck in the net. But doesn't Cloquet have an outstanding goalie?<br> <p></p><i></i>

Yes, Ellingson is probably one of the top 5 goalies in the state. CEC coach Esse said after the CEC/GR game that if Ellingson didn't play an amazing game Rapids wins by 2 or 3 in regulation. He's fundamentally sound. Rapids had to get some tip ins and rebounds. <p></p><i></i>
