      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Yeah but ESPN is reporting that the often injured Martin Havlat may sign with the Wild. He played 81 games last year but only averaged 36 games/season the previous three years. Sound familiar?

Based on who is left I'd try and sign Saku Koivu cheap and then move on. Hope for some high picks the next year.

Good riddance to him...no loyalty for the team that was faithful to him... Too bad we didnt trade him away when we could have... We got Mikko Koivu... whos ready to spread his wings and take over... Lets see how big of a splash the Wild will make in the free-agent market...

Gabby gone for less money than we offered him....Good Riddens, kinda like alot of sports players, Million dollar abilities, 10 cent brains....

Dude get over the power trip and play a GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Millions would love to be in your position..

Guess you cannot blame the players, if owners would get together and say to idiots like this you are a cancer and we are paying you the Mininum until you get over yourself, this will never stop.

Sorry

Mark

UGGHHHHH!!!! I don't like this move at all.

The guy has talent when he plays but the key word is WHEN! He has had 3 shoulder surgeries already. Havlat is just a little cheaper version of Gabby.

Based on who was left I wish the Wild would have given some good front end loaded long term deals to their remaining good players (Koivu, Burns, etc.) and then try and reload next year through the draft and free agency. I hope Richards can find scoring in the current roster.

I'm with PierBridge- Gaborik is going to light it up under a coach that will let him float and coast around until someone gets the puck to him. Natural scoring ability like that is tough to find, but the Wild will fill the hole.

I agree loosing Gabby, is a blow to our little offense we had. Alteast Fletcher isnt sitting on hands and pouting, hes making some moves to fill the hole!

Hope Havlat turns out well. I was hoping for maybe a couple other names on day one for us, but wait and see. Obvious Gabby did not want to be here since his yearly average salary is less than what we offered him. Gonna have to find out when the Rangers are in town to welcome him back, unless he is on the DL again.

Hope we get Koivu's brother

I hope Havlat stays healthy. He's good when he's out there, hopefully the full year last year is a trend that continues.

Im not sold on Havlat; he's as soft as Gaborik when it comes to playing nicked up. Funny how he(Havlat) found a way to play the entire season last year seeing it was a "contract" year for him. He's got talent, but can he stay on the ice.

I will miss his speed and his grace.. there is no doubt that when he was on the ice, we were a contending team regardless of who we were playing. Gaborik is and will be one of the greats.. no matter where he goes or plays.

But his lack of loyalty to the team and his desire for $$$$ has caused me to not shed much of a tear over seeing him go. let alone his "injuries" every other second..

Should make for a very interesting year.

Sounds like they missed out on Sako Koivu, too bad! They need to add more fire power to the offense yet or its going to be a long season.

I'd actually say we are in a little better shape, we didn't have Gaborik for most of the year so as long as Havlat can stay healthy we should be ok. I do agree we need another forward to boost the scoring. I also feel our defence will be a little more solid in our own end. If Burns can turn things around they should be ok on the offensive side of things too.

Havalt will be a good addition, but what else do we have? An aging brunette, and Nolan, and Koivu is solid, but whatelse do we have? If Richards whats a high tempo offense, we need more high tempo offense of players. Hopefully they can make some more moves

    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
