I thought they moved Elk River into this section to even things out?

They should. We could use a good 5 seed.

Elliott, looks like you are telling us we will see the Jacks in the first round at the X again. Lost some talent, returning a lot, and somehow found another 92% GAA goalie in the Bemidji top caliber goalie pipeline.

We wish we could see Bemidji during regular season, like we saw Moorhead last week.

Will have to try to find Livestream for the HT game on the 16th and the HM game on the 26th. Of course, the Pioneers will be bringing their secret Section 8 weapon with them , acquired in an unfair trade deal and who no doubt will provide advance intelligence on the Jacks talent and systems.

Who do you think Jacks might best match up with at the X? Many of the kids will have a years experience at the X venue under their belt.

The bloom will be off the rose for some returning teams compared to last year. So less mystique factor. And, some new teams might be vulnerable to first round jitters. So, the Jacks chances might be improved to advance to the 2nd round at the X.

Of course , there are a few games between now and then

Odds on favorite, but not a definite.
Benilde would be good.
Beat the best in the first round.

But right now it's Crookston.
Can't get ahead of yourself, right Thawks and hounds.

Toughest section in the State IMO. Does the five seed get a bye?

A loss to Hermantown will not change coaches voting in this section.
A loss to EGF might/will.
but the games listed are the important ones.

Bemidji wins out of the games listed then they will be the 1 seed.
Moorhead wins out they will be the 2 seed argue (maybe) for the 1 seed.
Brainerd wins out they might get the 1 seed, 2 for sure.
Roseau wins out they might get the 2 seed.
St Mikes wins out, maybe a 2 seed.
Rogers will be 6
Buffalo 7

So #1, 2, 3 is still very much up in the air between Bemidji, Brainerd, and Moorhead.

St Mikes and Roseau could do something to move into that mix but probably looking at 4 & 5, so all their games are more relevant because of their early season tie.

Makes for an exciting finish.

STMA should be able to lock up at least the 4 seed with a win over Roseau. Maybe they could even make some noise in sections and pull an upset or two, as they were able to knock off Breck. This is shaping up to be a much tighter section than I think most anticipated.

          Most would call it making the correct adjustments. Others may call it something else.

          STMA and Roseau do not meet again in regular season. Skated to a 3-3 tie early in year in St. Michael. Shots after regulation were 43-13 (STMA). Combination of Roseau goalie playing well and also a plenty of easy saves.

          A lot of important games left in this section that could move teams around. If the previous games have taught you anything it's that nobody in this section better sleep on anyone.

          Agree with Elliott on seeding implications-I fully expect Bemidji to end up #1 and Mhd #2. Im really not sure how to gauge STMA yet and we haven't played them yet. But yes this section is still open to 4 teams IMO, Bem, Mhd, STMA, Brainerd. Like usual, goalie performance will be the key.
