Looks to me that everyone is starting to get on a role and playing together again!

What you all think of the team this year?

So far so good. I agree that Kangas is a big key and needs to stay healthy. Luckily our defensemen haven't been trying to take his head off with their sticks like the Mankato guys... grin

They are playing well and Kangas definitely needs to stay healthy.

It was good to see them play well against another ranked team(UNH) last weekend. They have some tough weekends coming though. After this coming weekend against Mich Tech then they have Denver, Michigan and Michigan State and then CC. Should be some really exciting hockey!!

Go Gophs!!!

They played well tonight against Colorado!

Your all right, if Kangas stays healthy, there going to be a team that is going to be tough to beat!

We need to find more consistent scoring from our 2nd and 3rd lines. Stoa,Barribal,Schroeder can't do it all themselves.

I know they didn't score, that's why I added that word consistent. Because the only consistent scorers for the Gophers come from the first line.

The Gopher's need to pick the intensity up a bit. They looked awfully sluggish yesterday and I was very disappointed in the way they played.

Everyone always picks apart the gophs when they lose one or two but then they always woop it up when we win a bunch, i think they will be awesome always

I'm not picking them apart, I was stating the facts. Did you see the game yesterday? If you did there is no possible way you can say the Gophers played up to their ability. How about 2 weeks ago at the tourney. We got housed by Michigan, and then tied to a Mich State team that got beat by the badgers the night before. And the Badgers don't beat anybody like that. Evidentially the rest of the nation doesn't feel like the Gophers are deserving of #2, they got dropped to 4th.

It's going to be an interesting stretch here with Carman and Barriball returning from knee injuries and Schroeder, Hoeffel and Fairchild going off to the world juniors. Time to see who's going to rise to the top.

who cares about ratings, they just got to keep winning games and take a game at a time, a series at a time instead of where theyre ranked.

Any team can beat any team, its not like Gophers are unbeatable...hey Holy Cross beat the Gophers in opening round of NCAA's two years ago, hard to believe but upsets happens and it was unforunate it was Gophers.

Gophs are and will be the most dominant team this year

They will be if they show up every game. This team seems to get lazy and reckless every now and then. If they play up to their ability they should be the team to beat. You know every team out there is pumped when they play us.

Just great! Another one of those nights when they show the game tape delayed so they can put the Timberwimps on. mad They'd be better off putting the T-p(oops) on tape delayed! grin

The Gophers have peaked in December once again. They have started to show some chinks in the armor, with some suspect games lately. I am not so sold on this team. A great November and a great December does not equal national championship. It doesn't even get you a McNaughton trophy.

I respect this gopher team but I am not ready to annoint them champs just yet. shocked

You guys know North Dakota is the best team ever! crazy I mean who could argue that? Right Redlake? I can't believe they are actually ranked 23rd! I mean two tight wins against a powerhouse Bemidji team last week... they ought to be a top three team right? be careful dissing the Sioux of Hakstol will flip you the bird!! laugh

At last check, the talent laden rodent team has a gigantic 4 point lead over the downtrodden Sioux. Hang on to your pin laden vest. You're really cooking now. wink

That Bemidji team would give the gophers fits if the chokers had the ba!!s to play them. You cake eaters can't pull on your maroon and gold turtle necks hard enough. I really hope you goofers go down this weekend. My fingers are crossed and hopefully Hack has his fingers in check also!

    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
