I'm taking Warroad to take it all. They're playing real good hockey this time of year. Paquin has been solid over his last few starts, Pieper has been playing his best hockey all year, Shaugabay has been scoring like crazy, Hahn has been on fire since they put him with Ravndalen, hell even Ravndalen has been passing the puck. However, chances are that Tai Larson won't be available on defense, that kinda worries me. GO WARRIORS!

I would like to see Little Falls do well.

STA has the best schedule...I think that they will play in the championship again either DM or Warroad. The championship game will be a good one...I think STA takes it

But 40 years from now they can tell their grandkids they played in the tournament.

You won't be able to.....

Cut them some slack...They did what they needed to do to get there.

I just hope that Warroad loses!!!

They should be playing in Class AA, like Roseau.

Well usually the #1 seed has the easiest road to the championship so you have to go with STA.
Ben Dover plays BOTH ways.

My faith in Warroad was risen even more today when I learned that junior defensmen Tai Larson will be dressing for the tourny. GO WARRIORS!

First of all prove to me that Boogaard24Balla has not made it to the state tournament. Litch comes from a dog section.

I think the finnals will be DM and STA in the State Championship

Should be AA teams.

Post by elliott70 » Mon Mar 03, 2008 9:04 pm

Mankato West (25-2-0)
Big town like Mankato, they should be AA.

Blake (19-8-1)
Private hockey school, they should be AA.

Litchfield/D-C (11-14-2)
Taking kids from 3 or 4 schools, they should be AA.

St. Thomas Acadamy (23-5-0)
All boys school, they should be AA.

St. Cloud Cathedral (22-5-1)
Private school in a big town like st Cloud, no question, they shouild be AA.

Little Falls (25-3-0)
How many times do you have to win a section championship before you consider moving up and with a coach like they have, they should be AA.

Duluth Marshall (23-5-0)
Duh? They should be AA.

Warroad (22-6-0)
Small twon like this, who do you think they are, Roseau?
They should stay single A.

elliot your a joke, marshall has 35 kids in their hockey progam JV and Varisty and that is including eight graders and 9th graders who played from B2. and they have roughly 235 kids in the high school. just becuase they are dominant is no reason to move up.

Although I'm assuming you're just kind of joking around...here's my defense for Cathedral.

A. St. Cloud has declining enrollment numbers across the board...public and private. Within the next five years I'd say St. Cloud will have one public school.

B. St. Cloud does their school system and youth hockey program a little different than most towns. First, Apollo and Tech don't have true "feeder" programs as Apollo, Tech, and Cathedral are all thrown in to the same pot. Second, St. Cloud has numerous private elementary, middle, and junior high schools. I'd say every player on Cathedral (except Jordan Palusky, a kid who moved to SC from Redwood)...every kid on that team was in the private school system in 7th grade...with probably more than 75% starting in kindergarten.

Marshall, they have the range and all of Duluth, Hermatown, Superior, up the North Shore, down to Cloquet, heck they can even steal kids form the twin cities.

B2 players, c'mon.

Geroge, what? One school in St. Cloud, the town is huge....
3 hockey teams there is easy.
And they can take kids from all the nearby towns...
They take the best from River Lakes every year, right?
Cathedral and Apollo need to step up to the plate.
