      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Stoa?????

Recommended Posts

Who thinks that Stao will be back for another year? I certainly hope that he will come back and believe that he will. Don't think he wants to go out with season like he just had, although he did lead the WCHA in scoring, he is more of a team guy and think he will come back to lead the Gophs to a much better season to end his college career on.

I think he'll be gone...it would be fun to have him back one more year but we'll have to see what he thinks and wants as he probably has set his goals. We'll find out sooner or later.

I think we will see him in an Avs uniform in the next couple of week but I would love to have him back. Come on Stoa stay one more year, do you want to be a state legend like Leopold and Pohl in their senior years or just another gopher that went pro early.

The latter and its not really early he graduated didn't he?

Lets see another year of College Hockey or a big fat pay check "for a college student anyway" the paycheck usually wins that one!

Not sure if he was redshirted or not, but although he is technically a senior, he has another year of eligability left to come back and play.

One other thing........I think he will be back next year as he didn't take part in senior night this past season. I am banking on him wearing the "C" for yet another season.

Correct, he got a redshirt year so he would have been a senior this year. I certainly wouldn't balme him for going but it would be really nice to have him back.

Yes he can but he'd still have to take either graduate level courses or work on a 2nd major/minor and be enrolled in school taking at least the minimum number of credits allowed to be eligible to play. I think he'll come back.

I think NHL Clubs will want to see another year under the repaired knee before they sign him to anything. If he can duplicate the year he had this year he'll get a good gig. If not I bet he spends alot of time in the AHL

ok makes sence now. it would be pretty sweet if he did, but like was said before a big paycheck to start paying off those student loans. we can all hope.

I don't think too many of the gopher players have to worry about student loans.

I'm hearing its 50-50 on whether he returns. I sure would be suprised if he comes back. Heck I'm just hoping Jordan Schroeder comes back at this point.

from GPL they've been saying from a family source that Schroeds will leave if there is an offer he likes. Nothing much on Stoa but will be surprised if he stayed...kinda like Tebow but no Championships! laugh

I'm not surprised he left. The Gophers weren't likely to be a contender for the national championship next year and I actually think Stoa's style might be better for the NHL. I think Schroeder is also quite likely to leave but really hope he sticks around to make the Gophers at least mediocre next season! Hoeffel will have to step it up now to replace Stoa.

Good luck in the NHL Mr Stoa, you will be missed.

If we can keep Schoeder I can see our top line being just as dangerous, Hoeffel might be able to step right in and put up some good numbers, he had a great 2nd half. I'm not sure where the rest of the scoring will come from but we will need some guys to step up next season if we are going to contend for anything.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
