    Wild 18/19

    So far looks like just adding depth in FA signings, nothing to really get excited about. I do like Brown and Hendricks coming in and adding some physical play. I didn't really understand the draft pick, but then again I don't follow the draft too closely. Looks like the pick is another little D man, another Spurgeon. Not a terrible thing, if he plays as well as Spurgeon. But when it comes to playoff hockey, the little guys just can't hold up and slow down the bigger forwards. Hoping they can sign both Dumba and Zucker. Only 3-4 more years of Koivu, Parise, and Suter.
  2. Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out. Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that. Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team. Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
  3. Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha. Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts. Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists. Going in for surgery. Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy? Uh oh....
  4. Saw that Morrisey is suspended for tonight. Really too bad they missed the call during the game. Should've been a 5 min major and a game misconduct. Really would've changed the entire game IMO. There are lots of times I wish Boogy was still around. Staal needs to be checked for a concussion and Koivu needs to be checked into a retirement home. Seems like we can pull up last years playoff and offseason threads and just ride that until October. Same story, can't compete with a couple heavy blue liners and can't score.
  5. Probably not a good look to not get a shot on goal in the last 2:30 when your 6 v 5 and have 6 offensive zone faceoffs. Too bad they couldn't keep the pressure on after that second goal.
  6. Good read. I was just thinking of how Dumba is comparable to Burns the other day. I could see Dumba taking a path similar to Burns (hopefully without the trade) which his D game improves while he keeps up his O numbers. No reason he shouldn't be vying for the Norris in years to come as he matures and improves behind the blue line. Scenario and prediction- If the Wild trade Dumba, the following season he will grow a beard and proceed to win the Norris trophy. ha
  7. I live just west of Minot and spear on Sak quite a bit. I have only speared on Douglas Creek Bay (~12miles west of Garrison) and Parshall Bay out of the Van Hook arm. The first couple years I speared after moving out here were phenomenal to say the least. Plenty of fish seen and speared in between 15-20lbs. Unfortunately for me my time in a dark house has decreased the last couple years. The times I went out last year, in my usual spots were slow, but I did not move around at all. There are a TON of baitfish in Sak right now. Not sure when you are going to go, but February has been the
  8. Can't believe I have to be the first to post pics! 2 weekends in the books and our group did fairly well. My sister shot an 8pt opening night, I shot this one Wednesday morning, and my dad shot a doe Friday night. Overall we have a lot of fawns around our place, which is encouraging for future populations. Hoping this winter is an easier one and most of them will make it through. I shot this buck at 9am out in a 4 year old clear cut. He was chasing a group of does that looked like it consisted of a 2.5yo, 1.5yo, and a fawn. Kind of weird to see the does all together with a buck c
  9. Deer camp is definitely not a healthy week. I'm looking forward to this colder weather. More deer moving and easier to sit all day when its not 70 and sunny. Lunches for me usually include some nutty bars, water, whatever kind of lunchmeat sandwich is available at camp, and a coke or sprite. Focusing on eating the snacks slowly helps pass the time when the deer aren't around.
  10. I've chosen to spend the vacation at rifle camp this year instead of bowhunting. I have been staying at the rifle camp when everybody is there, but its not a lot of time getting up and driving 45 minutes 1 way to the bow stand and not getting back until later in the evening. Just something about that time at rifle camp that is special. 3 years of successful bowhunting also helps to go to rifle camp and relax a bit.....
  11. Yep just another 4 goal game for Dubs.
  12. Yeah your right my bad, I forgot Stalock started Saturday.
  13. When is it time to go full panick on Dubs? Down the stretch last year, I thought he was mediocre at best, really seemed like his goals against was around 4. Yes, he has good stretches, but he basically threw away the Vezina the last 2 months of the season last year. 4 goals in his first 2 games this year, not a good start.
  14. Koivu, Suter, Parise, and Staal are are good players....right now. They are really the heart and soul of the team. But the youngest one is Suter at 32. The tail end of all 4 contracts are going to suck. 2019-2020-2021 are going to be tough cap years and trying to sign FA if these guys fall off. Parise is already falling apart. Koivu has missed a bunch of games. Who knows when all the minutes Suter has acccumulated will catch up to him. Even if 2-4 or 3-4 of these guys fall off, it leaves a big hole. I really hope they make some very deep runs the next 2 years. If not, we could
  15. Had a decent trip. We fished the evening of Aug. 9-Aug. 15. Had 2 pretty good days, 2 bad days, and the rest were just so-so. Dad, Uncle, and Grandpa don't like getting up early anymore so we usually outdrink the fish at night and sleep in mornings. We have slowly been learning how to consistently catch fish on this lake. The local guys don't provide any information and neither do the guys that have been making the trip for 20+ years. Can't say I blame them much, but would have shortened the learning curve for us a little bit. We found a bay a few years back that we can catch 10-1
