It's going to be tough especially when they have to leapfrog a couple of teams to get in. They need to score more goals plain and simple. We will see what they do at the deadline. I hope they are sellers myself.

I think they have played better on the road this year.

One thing they do have in their favor is that they have a game or two in hand on most of the teams around them in the standings.

Wild this year. Yawn.

They need to play a more up tempo game. I can't remember the last time they got 30 shots on goal in a game let alone outshoot somebody.

Yeah...they played a good game last night. I counted at least two posts and a crossbar in the third period off of Wild shots.

With their road schedule, they have a long, uphill battle if they want to squeak into the playoffs.

Any predictions for tonight? I think we will win a 3-2 game.

As for gaborik, i hope he goes somewhere else. too much distraction, im afraid though we'll have to add him to the list of superstars minnesota has given up like. .

I see that the Rangers placed Aaron Voros on waivers. They also put Reitz on waivers, who the Wild traded to obtain Dan Fritsche.

What? I don't think gaborik is anywhere near superstar status confused

Get rid of him and get a couple more Koivu's or Anti's in here we don't need another bench warmer!

I can't believe that we can't get anything for Gabby, I know he has been injured lately but if he is good now he can be a top 20 scorer

yeah, he'll hit the free agent market in the off season and leave us empty handed. Im thinking if he wasnt injured and skating right now they woudl have tried to get something for him, but with the way he is now he has no market value.

Think of what would have happened if DR would have gotten rid of Gabby before the season started like he said he was going to. (He said before the season started that Gabby would not be starting the season with the Wild if he were not signed) Instead we get a waste of a season, a team with lots of play making ability and no play finishing ability. We need to make a move for someone who can score this summer and we have pretty good trade bait in Harding. It will be interesting to see how DR manages to screw it up...

Negative but I agree with everything OnAfly says. Gabby should have been traded before the season started, DR couldn't make a deal and now we end up with nothing. Our farm system doesn't look like there is any NHL talent either so it might be time to blow up the team and start over.

Sorry for the negativity, it's been a long day. I do think that Gabby should not have been on the team at the beginning of the season, though.

its going to be a long night to if your watching the game. DR should really start to hear it for his lack of trying to get some people in here to help from the start of the season. Sold out arena and so-so product

    • Thanks guys!   Any chance you have a brand, model or picture of these? I think I get what you are saying just haven't seen them before.
    • Sent you a long-winded PM... you been out on Lac qui Parle at all?
    • What I have ben enjoying is watching the fourth line on the ice and sometimes they are the best line out there. Playing late in games and giving the top two lines a rest may not seem like a  big deal now but come crunch time that rest just might make the difference. I picked the right time to put the cable back in I think I have only missed one Wild game this season plus I am watching a lot of umd hockey!  As for Sutter I think he is having a banner year, great plus/minus rating. he is scoring a few goals which is another plus and in the Chicago game when he traded sides of the ice with his d partner he pretty much shutdown a tiring Kane. Best time to watch Wild hockey is halfway through the game, they seem to find another level to play at.
    • 23 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY again today. Sunshine Ray’s extended forecast is calling for rising temps and sunshine every other day. This would give us a warm melt for the snow that has gathered on roofs and the Lodge should get busy. I can see a lot of fishermen out on the ice and more then a few will be taking off time from work to get out there. As a mater of fact I am at the Lodge this morning. Was feeling pretty good with lots of energy so I thought I would come in and do some ordering and touch base with some of our suppliers who make daytime deliveries.   First thing I noticed when the wife dropped me off was a couple of old lawn mowers outside. When I came in I found Tiny working on a small carburetor. I had to talk to him and I found out that somehow we, the Lodge have become a drop off spot for old, gently used lawn mowers. I then remembered the tongue in cheek commercial I had made a few weeks ago. Looks like someone was listening and dumped their junk on us. Tiny did say he thinks he can take the parts from the two and get one running. The Lodge needs a push mower so maybe this will work out afterwards. Tiny also mentioned that someone dropped off a case of thirty weight oil, Gus took that he said.   Luge run is up and running, with all the snow we received last week and the use of Nytelyter front end loader a run was built. With a sunny day followed by a cloudy day we should be able to ice it down and it will last the rest of winter. Well Skinny and Hammering Hank will be doing that. I did get word from Ranger Rick that he had an accident yesterday and will be laid up a few days. He was out checking on the trails at Samantha Lake when he slid the Ranger he was driving down a hill and hit a tree. He cracked the windshield with his head and hit the tree with his hip or part of the Ranger. He is suppose to go see Dock Berrium today but is dragging his feet and everything else trying to get out of bed. The pine tree is still down on Trappers Trail but a detour has been put in around it. Ranger Rick was headed to the tree and the chain saw and other stuff might have been part of the balance problem with the Ranger.   Christmas tree drive is done here at the Lodge. Not as many trees collected as last year but they have all been taken to the Resort to be disposed of. Actually they will be tied in bundles, weighted down and dropped into the bay come spring melt out. Elmer and DOC and Vic will do it and will keep their new crappie spots a secret. Of course if you want to find out where they are all you need do is take a ride in Vic’s mail boat and check the seats. He writes down all his good fishing spots in pencil on his wood bench seats because he does not know how to read them on his handheld GPS unit. The idea of drifting over some of the brush piles sounds like a good idea about now.   Forty may happen on Thursday which is a lot better then minus 20 I will have a day spent at the hospital doing tests. Last years tests are now all bench marks and I have to repeat them now a year latter to see how much damage has been done. Hoping I come out pretty good but I have a lot of work to do before fishing season comes this year. Launching a boat by myself may not be something I can do till late in the season but I sure would like to ride along with Chuck come June. So from a cloudy day here at the Lodge at Lake Iwanttobethere
    • They make a rail that when it slides closed it drops about 1/4". I have these and they are nice for driving down the road but my 3 and 5 year olds can't open them up!   For the doors, I used an rv type style clip. To open you have to push in and then they pop open.
    • I can't imagine a worse job on earth than trying to wrangle a house full of 2-4 year olds with a baby or 2 thrown in for an added challenge...but thankfully someone wants to do it.   Around here the absolute lowest I've seen at an in home day care was $140/week and that was for any age, price didn't change based on age.  $175 is pretty common (again no price change for different ages, my 3 year old and 8 month old cost the same) but have seen it up as high as $225 and all of them were basically at capacity. When you get into day care centers they you can be looking at $300-400/week and the price does go up for infants and babies.    It seems a lot of people get into doing day care when they have their own kids.  They stay home with them to save daycare costs and then bring in other kids to bring in some income and then it goes from there.  Ends up being a pretty decent solution as long as the other person can find a job that provides the benefits. 
      If she does do in home day care just make sure to keep that in mind when buying a new house.  A friends wife does daycare out of their house and he hated their old house because the house layout required daycare to essentially be in the middle of their main living area so he'd come home from work and be in the middle of day care trying to relax with a beer. They ended up moving so that they could get a house that had a good basement set up for a daycare so they could more or less contain it to one area and not let it infiltrate the rest of the house.    
    • Tons of fish on Mille Lacs. LOL right. Must had a lot of people with u for a ton on Mille Lacs.    
    • Up here its not that much but at a home daycare you are still looking at 120 for a toddler 150 for an infant... This way we can save 1700 bucks a month! plus make a few dollars on top.. She was a teacher in a daycare while attending school.. She has a knack for a bunch of kids.. Me not so much. Thanks for the advice nofish!
