Mikko Koivu

14 posts in this topic

This guy is the bomb. This is the guy we should sign to a 10 year deal. He has 3 years left on his current one. Always wins the battle in the corners and seems to through that unsuspecting hit in the corner or behind the net that levels the defender. Plus he can score and pass with the best and always backchecks. Should wear the "C" the rest of the year IMO.

Yep, Mikko is our stud.

Tough losses the last few games, they should have won both games.

Koivu is the man, face off stud, behind the net stud, all around stud. If it wasnt for him stepping up and representing that "C" we would be in a lot of hurt

Yet another tough loss, good thing that last post ringer didn't go in because they probably would have called it off anyway.

Good game tonight, most of the time when they play this good they win....but not tonight.

Yes a very tough loss. I would have loved to see this game go in to OT or a shoot out for how the game was played. The wild deserved that game and should have gotten it.

I am thinking that backstrom needs a rest, harding should get another shot, which he probally will this weekend with the back to back games. I though backs gave up a couple of soft goals last night.

Did anyone see Mikko yapping at the refs today to get the 10 min misconduct? I don't know if I missed it on TV or if he just said the "right" thing to get under the ref's skin. Nice win today though.

I watched the first two periods, and there was nothing, it must have happened late in the third, since I heard nothing after 10 minutes through the third period, and did not know the outcome.

It was almost at the end of the game, I think with about 5 min or so left.

He is such a stud. He played very well tonight against nashville especially the goal late in the 3rd period.

Agreed. He was diving for loose pucks up 4 goals late in the 3rd. Great play to lift the sick of Weber and then rub him off the puck and go in and score. All Star for sure this year.

    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
