      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 .

Just checked out a blog on a popular metro newspaper, Lemaire was saying that he was surprised and that Leopold wanted to move in a different direction than he and Riseborough. Does that mean a high flying offensive team next year? I'm all for it as long as the win column doesn't take a nose dive. I didn't have anything against watching defensive hockey. I still loved watching it, but a change of pace might be nice.

Who is out there? Coach? GM? Most that are out there have fail a # of times.

I believe you coach a system. You adjust your system to the talent that is given to you. Lamaire's system works and scores goal when the players buy into it. If they don't it doesn't work. Do you think Gabby will score more and be a plus player in a differant system?

What are your thoughts?

FT - I agree. I think this is what happened a lot in the early years of the team. They played above the skill level of the players and had a little success because of it. I think a lot of the players lost faith in this system after a so many years of it and it stopped working as well. This is also what makes me nervous about doing a 180 on our style. I don't really want to watch a year of the players transitioning to a new style and the team stinking it up.

Sad to see them go ...

Glad to see a chance for "re-birth" ..

Had we stayed healthy this season.. we could still be watching games.. ie - playoffs would have happened. No doubt.

DO NOT forget that Backstrom has such great #'s because of the defense style of Lemaire.. not saying he isnt a phenomenal goalie.. because he is. But take a look at Rolston.. Fernandez.. they didnt look so great after the Wilds defense was not in front of them.

Lets get a new MNGR in.. he can hire a new coach.. and we can begin the next chapter.

TSN is reporting current Nashville's GM David Poile could come in and take over. He's done a great job with the Pred's and they have been shredding payroll every year. The Wild spend up to or close to the cap the last few years so with more room Poile could do some damage in a good way.

Yeah, Mn has got to be a managers dream. You get all the money you want and you don't have to worry about putting people in the seats.

Whatever happens, I just want a team that wins games. If we win them 4-3 now instead of 2-1, that's ok with me.

alot of changes coming in the Wild organization. I think it was time for a change being we cant get deep into the play offs. They have alot of work to do, and have to get it rolling for next year.

Are they going to sign gabby?

Well after reading the the owners comments in the paper today it sounds like he would rather have Gabby then anyone else. I can except that but with him going public with that what kind of power does that leave the new coach to motivate or didsapline players if gabby stays? Risebrough offered an 8 year 64m deal and Gabby turned it down.

It will be a new still but will it produce more wins? I doubt it.

How can it not produce more wins? Change is good sometimes people, Lemaire did an outstanding job getting this team going, the team started to level off the past few years, now its time for someone else to take it to the next level. Lets not jump overboard yet.

That's what the word was when DR was still the manager. Now, who knows. If Leopold wants to have a more offensive styled team, he may hire a manager who will put a more offensively styled coach in place.

I liked both moves. It will be nice to see fresh faces behind the bench and in the front office. I read the new GM will get to pick his coach and I for one hope he is more offense/attack oriented. I really got tired of watching the Wild dump and chase and then try to set up for a perfect shot instead of shooting the puck more. How many times did they get outshot during the season? I'll bet it was quite a lot. When you shoot more, you get more opportunities for rebound and screened goals. (Just my 2 cents)

Have heard through the grapevine that they're gonna take a run at getting Mikko's brother Saku here. They also toyed with the idea of luring Modano out of Dallas and having him play for a year or two before retiring, but that the Stars are gonna offer him a front office job after his contract's up next year.

    • I run  5/16 on my new house. My old house had 1/8 form Miltona and lasted  just over a yr. I was out the sec time of the yr and seen one was fraying a little when setting it down on the ice. After I had it on the ice I told my son  we have to change cables when we get home. Fast forward 6 hrs and crank one side up about half ways and go over to the other side and start cranking it up and the cable broke. If my head would have been in the way it would have been bad news. I had enough cable to restring it. And get it up and locked in. I went to the other side and started to crank and that one popped to. I went and got the floor jack out of the back of the pickup and jacked it up and locked it in place. I put 1/4 on when I got home that night.   I take my house in the car wash everytime I come home when its wet it. If you have bad cables change them. For me it every two yrs and thats with 5/16 inch
    • Evan Williams might be ok for the skid row drinker who is more into quantity than quality. I don't drink to excess anymore, when I have a drink I care more about how it tastes than I do about what it does to me. 
    • he's plenty young.............he should grow outta that stage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I agree, I wouldn't attempt to shoot that gun but it is extremely cool! I would probably take it to a few larger gun shops and see if anyone can give you any info on it just so you know what it is.
    • I put stainless on my house before I even took it home last year.  It was less than $100 and they installed them.  I also see them advertised on Craigs place for $50.
    • Going on the 3rd year and haven't change mine yet.... that being said it is always rinsed off after being used and sits inside a heated shop
    • DON'T even think about shooting this gun. Leave it as is and hang it on the wall.  Maybe put a little plaque with it identifying it as "Granpa's gun" and the dates of his time on earth. My guess is the gun was fired very few times after he arrived in this country. Hang it up-don't BLOW it up! 
    • I think HSO readers are probably a little more responsible than some owners but I see people changing cable every 2 years, some every year, and some hardly ever. How often do you change cables and are you 1/4, 5/16, or 3/8 cable people. I usually do every 3 years on 5/16 galvanized cable and do the pivots at the same time. I had an old 6x8 skid house I built a trailer for, it was a heavy old pig and never changed them in the 9 years I had it. I will say that if I had both break the same day like someone on here did I would probably do them every other trip! I just have to believe something else was going on there too. I can't even justify the 4-5 times extra price for stainless. I'd like to hear you guys thoughts. I keep the pressure off them at all time except for going up and down.
