Gaborik already riding the pine w/yet another "lower body" injury. This is getting old-same thing every year- he was offered over $8 mil a year which is actually more than that when you factor in that he misses 20-30 games every year. Trade him Risedork!

I am with you on that a used puck bag would be better at least you could use it every day.

They should hold on to him for a month or so so he can get some value by looking good in some games.

But

If you wait a month he may be injured and lose some value.

I heard his agent is seeking 10yr and $100 million.

IMO the Wild absolutely should have moved Gaborik before the start of the season. The guy is always hurt, he isn’t a playoff performer at all, and he is easy to knock off his game when teams get physical with him. I’m not saying that he is not a good player, but besides MAYBE Ovechkin, no player is worth 20 percent of your teams cap money. I am sooooo sick of hearing the argument from people, “He had 83 points last year. Who’s going to pick up those points if they trade him?” The answer is EVERYONE. How about the guy that gets to take Gabby’s place on the power play, or the guy that is now going to move up to the top line!

What I would have liked to see before the season started was a trade with Florida for Ballard and Florida’s 1st round pick in 2009. I would have been fine with that. Now he’s hurt AGAIN, and we are going to end up getting nothing for him.

That's Risedork for ya-watch him get traded to another team in our division-that would be a Risedork-like move. Gabbys a wimp.

The team is playing well early on without Gabby in the lineup. If this trend continues I think Risedork should trade him and get as much as he can. A centerman, and tap into top minor league talent. I think the team is playing good team hockey and are getting more production from the new people than anticipated. They should no longer look at Gabby for all the scoring if there are more playmakers, which seem like they found from this years free agent additions and minor callups. Our draft choices are finally making a contribution.

Solid player. Would love to see him or Plekanec come in a deal. Both are 25 years old.

    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?   
    • They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
    • OK, to go back to original question, how much current do the 12 volt pumps used in those sort of systems use?   I can go look up the information and figure it out, but I hoped someone here already knew the answer.  
    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
