      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 .

Playoffs

Recommended Posts

nothing on the playoffs? no thoughts, comments?

Is it because the Wild are not in? crazy Or is it too early to talk about it.

Well Pittsburgh in the Eastern finals over Bruins. It'll be a rematch of the Red Wings and Pengs in the stanley cup finals!

I watched most the games yesterday the NBC game with Flyers vs Pens was a great game with hard hits.

I have a general hockey question- Anyone else think that if you score a short handed goal you should get your guy out of the penalty box?

Nothing like playoff hockey. Don't get Vs., so I'm limited to what's on NBC.

Had the Ranger/Wash and Philly/Pitt games on and thought both were very entertaining.

Same here man. I'd love to see Chicago make it to the finals. It's been too long for them. As for Anaheim, I love watching that hard nosed style that is very effective in playoffs...San Jose What? whistle

I'm heading back to MN on Thursday. Pretty quiet up here in Montreal now as well. No lack of hockey on the tube up here however. Juniors, IHL, all pro games... if it's on the ice it's on TV.

Flames extinguished! I love it. [PoorWordUsage] coach, [PoorWordUsage] players, [PoorWordUsage] fans; happening in front of them in their precious Saddledome makes it all the better. Turn the lights out on your way out the arena Keenan....loser.

Wow, there has been some great playoff games so far!!! Hat tricks, overtimes, fights, back and forth action...some of these games have been some of the best that I can recall in recent memory...

I hope you guys were watching what I was watching tonight because it was a real barn burner! Hawks Win, Hawks Win, Hawks Win! This game went into the third period tied at 3 and finished with a bunch of lead swings and the Hawks on top 7-5 what a finish, and Patrick Kane got the Hat Trick to boot! Mighty strong going into the next round but it looks like it will be an old school Original Six match up with the Red Wings who will no doubt be heavily favored, I don't think the Hawks would want it any other way! Go Hawks!

Thanks to all that chimed in and here are the answers, in no particular order: No they were not supposed to get this far, yes they do have a great young nucleus that will get better in the next few years and yes, Pier, that back hand was one of the nastiest shots I have seen in history, wicked haaad!

As for the octopus....I LOVE CALAMARI!!! I hope the young studs from Chi-Town fillet up the old warhorses from Motown and we will all feast on some Calamari!

Yes, I know, the Wings will be the prohibative favorite...but for now...I CAN DREAM!

Original Six....here we come!

Here are the old school players I grew up with, feel free to fill in the blanks of my failing memory for the Hawks if there are any other dinosaurs out there!

#2 Bill White

#3 Keith Magnuson

#4 Doug Jarret

#5 Lou Angotti

#7 Pit Martin?

#8 Jim Pappin?

#9 Duh! Bobby Hull

#10 Duh x2 Dennis Hull
