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.

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!
    • That's from the Trailer Park Boys. A hideous beast.
    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
