If Hermantown goes on a three year run like STA did where they come in and are winning the Semifinal games 11-0 then yes its time.rainier2 wrote: ↑Thu Apr 09, 2020 11:19 amOk, assuming Hermantown stays in A, we'll see if your opinion changes over the next three years. They are bringing up what could be their best class ever, which is saying something for a team that routinely beats the AA champ. Looks like SCC will drop off with no heir apparent that can hang with the Hawks. (Maybe Mahtomedi?) Denfeld may have a slight chance of taking them down next year, provided no other seniors magically show up to "get noticed", and maybe Warroad can pull together to upset them next year, but the two years after that are gonna be a low point for Class A.ClassAGuy wrote: ↑Thu Apr 09, 2020 11:06 amAgain I respect the opinion I am not a fan of Hermantown its just been good hockey of late to watch and Hermantown hasn't won for 3 years in row so its been fun to read all year how they are so high and mighty and then they don't get it done in the end.StanleyCup55 wrote: ↑Thu Apr 09, 2020 10:50 amRainer, it’s clear and obvious that Hermantown is killing hockey in the north.
Maybe, and a distant maybe, a miracle like 2019 Greenway will happen again but Hermantown has a clear advantage that no other team in the state has and it’s obvious and a disgrace to the game of hockey because it is killing hockey in the north as those teams cannot win the recruiting battle and therefore have no chance to compete. There is no way for them to suck it up and do their best when they’re getting outshot 70-10. Use your head man. Not sure how that is so hard for you and others to understand.
I am very surprised that any fan of the game would support Hermantown Hockey and what they’re doing in Class A.
Alexandria Embarrassed them 3 years ago, Greenway Upset them 2 years ago and Mahtomedi Shocked them even after they got a way with a game tieing goal that should not have counted. Its nice to have the villain and fun when the villain loses.
Again I think taking the top teams out is not the answer that was Tier 1 and Tier 2 days
I guess we'll see how many people show up at the X to watch a team steamroll everyone.
I just haven't seen the dominance of late Luverne had one of the best ever of the Hawk editions in OT the Moose had them in DOuble OT with your one good line narrative.
Teams as a whole are getting better but again if this next batch of Hawks is 3 time dominate champ then ok but they haven't been.
Gentry will be very good, EGF should be very good, Delano and Orono will be in that teir..... I am banking on Denfeld beating the Hawks
I guess we can just keep arguing though I respect your point but get tired of the whine...
Again lets keep this about CLASS A as a WHOLE the hermatnown Thread has enough of this stuff
I think EGF, Warroad, Gentry, Mahtomedi, Delano and Denfeld are going to be a good batch of Class A teams
