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

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!

    • Your partially correct Dave. The good morning thread was designed on the food thread as a babbling thread within that forum. Yea some of the posts went sideways a bit but the question got answered.   I don't remember reiny trying to sell anything. He had more knowledge in making different meats then all the rest combined and wasn't afraid to share!
    •     I think Mickey Mouse = Donald Trump
    •   Actually the beef was more about keeping the topics on topic so the info would be searchable and usable. There was one thread that was getting all the traffic and good information and recipes were getting lost in there amongst the silliness and idle chatter.   The situation was between mods and should have probably been handled in private between the mods and Rick or whoever.   You guys can think what you want and LMIT had a harsh way about himself but he was just looking after the best interests of the site in that instance.     RH had something to sell, that's the main reason he was even here.     Time outs were a lot more of a thing around here in the early days of this site when there were a lot more posters than there are now.
    • Somebody should tell conservatives we are under an Obama budget until September 30th, 2017, and that Trump has not had a single policy go through the legislature yet so we are effectively on cruise control from the last administration.

    • 56 HERE IN THE boat on Hidden Bay, let me repeat that 56 as in above zero! That kind of number in the fall would be a for sure an afternoon in the Puddle Humper working some late green patch of weeds down a shoreline in search of that late fall bass bite. I would have a rod with a buzz bait handy and when I would come up on some down green I would fling that buzz bait across the top and pump it back to the boat. There would be a good chance for a bass to bust it or more likely as not a northen would try to impress me with a splash and a swirl. The rod would bend some and I would work the fish back to the Puddle Humper. With the northern thrashing at the side of the boat like a toddler trying to get away from his mother at the grocery store I would wait for him to settle down. With years of practice I would grab the northern by his shoulders if fish really had shoulders. I would be able to gage if it was a keeper or not just by how wide I would have to spread my fingers for a good grip.   Lifting the fish out of the water drops would fall back and I would be face to face with a fish that always seem to have that attitude about him. I would pull the hook from the corner of his mouth and give him the fish a look over. Twenty inches, not bad but it was too early in the afternoon to be thinking about supper. I would tell the fish thanks for the action then let him slide from my hand back into the water. The fish of course would do nothing for a second or two then dart off to rejoin his buddies. Taking his position he would brag about how no fishermen could hold him. Back in the boat I would pick up one of the wife's new fluffy kitchen towels that I had borrowed to dry my hands and work a little heat back in my fingers. I would stay on the shoreline tossing a spinner bait and staying were the sun was shinning and with the luck be out of the wind because 56 is still 56, yup that is what I would be doing.   So I am sitting in the cabin, I have the den window cracked open and I can smell the outdoors. The cabin is breathing a little and I think it to is enjoying getting some fresh air to exchange with the stuff that has been here all winter. A few clouds in the sky but lots of sunshine coming in all the south windows. Wife is out on the deck with the brown dog, she has a soapy bucket of water and is wiping down deck furniture. Duncan is touring the grounds taking his time and walking slow, his nose deep into the old brown grass. I can’t see them but I can hear a few birds making noise. The wife comes over to the window to tell me she just saw three bees. Does not surprise me as the neighbor down the road has a hive, I am guessing bees get cabin fever to! Told her go to the greenhouse and grab the screen for the den window, don’t need bees in the cabin.   Sunshine Ray was forecasting mid fifties this weekend but today is a surprise, I was not ready for it. Not much ice on Lake Iwanttobethere and this will put a dent on what is left. Grabbing a jacket I made my way out to the deck and sat down on a chair in the full sun shine. It was just like a day like today should feel like. I lean back in the chair and closed my eyes and took a good listen. Some birds, a chain saw, which put a smile on my face that someone was using a day like today to do chain saw work. I am betting they are thinking winter is not done yet and filling the wood box might not be that bad of an idea. I took a moment to check our wood rack which was half full and decided we are good to go. Then I heard it, and you can’t mistake it for anything else. Someone had started their outboard, what lovely sound!   Well the wife went in the cabin and came out with a quilt and covered me up. I had no problem tugging it around me, I pulled my cap down low over my eye and the brown dog came over and laid down at my feet. Sleeping especially good sleep is hard for me to come by these days so I don’t need much of an excuse to close my eyes and think of buzz baits, lapping water and northerns who think they are something here at Lake Iwanttobethere
