Wild!!!

Recommended Posts

With the season upon us (finally) it's time to quit the lockout threads and start up the Wild threads smile

8:00PM, televised scrimmage on FSN (broadcast on KFAN). Can you tell it's been a while since we've seen NHL hockey?

GO WILD!

Didn't think I would be as excited after the lockout but who am I kidding, these are very exciting times! With a short season it is anyones guess as to how well we do, a hot streak to start or end the year and you are in the playoffs. I just hope the boys play hard and find some chemistry.

It's all up in the air in my mind. They could start off hot against all the other teams that haven't skated with each other much. On the other hand, maybe they struggle to gel with each other since a couple of those new guys have been playing other systems for so long.

So much for the fans boycotting hockey. I can't imagine in the history of the NHL that any team has sold out an intra-squad scrimmage.

For those that missed the game the Red beat the white 4-1, the overtime 1-0, and the shootout. smile

Go Wild~

heh. I was lucky enough to have some tickets to this fall into my lap from a fellow board member here... so i took my dad last night.

It was awesome. Really excited for the team this year.

Though to your point... I do know some MN fans that are boycotting hockey (they are the two most stubborn people I've known)... and I am sure other markets are probably struggling a bit more.

I don't care. I am stoked!

It probably helped that they gave away the tickets for free all you had to do was pick them up at the Xcel box office.

Dumba is staying up with the big club! I hope he can make a good impression and stay up for a while, I only caught the 3rd period of last nights game but people are saying good things! Kassian stays up and Palmari, Veilleux and Dowell were put on Waivers. I hope Dowell doesn't get picked up, we need all the depth we can get. How did Granlund do last night?

Granlund did not really do much last night. Palmari actually looked pretty decent out front of the net. If we did not have so much depth this year, I doubt he gets sent down.

Dumba must play for the Wild or be sent to the WHL team. He cannot go between the Aeros and the Wild. If he stays with the Wild at all, I believe that counts 1 year against his signed contract. Something to that effect.

Dumba can play 5 games and still be sent back to the CHL without using up a year of his contract, similar to what the did with Bulmer last year. Bulmer go 9 games because of the full season.

Dumba will hang around just long enough for Scandella and Brodin to get healthy and then head back to Jrs.

Dumba does not look out of place that's for sure. However, at his age it is probably better to give him at least another year.

I'm trying to temper my excitement for the Wild. The shortened season probably won't help them too much with all of the new faces. The key is to make the playoffs and get hot at the right time (like LA last year).

He's too young to go to Houston. He would have to go back the Red Deer in the WHL.

I'm guessing we'll see the same thing Bulmer did last year. Go to the last game before he would burn a year off his contract and then go back. The Wild are at the max 50 contracts, they don't want to rush him, and he's only 18. They just don;t know how he's going to react to the NHL game when everyone is in mid-season form. That's going to be a whole lot different than the first game after 9 months.

Yep I say give him a taste of the NHL and see how he does and then back to jrs. As good as he has looked I don't think he is ready for a full time NHL job just yet.

On another note isn't it great to actually have depth this year! The 3 guys they sent down on waivers would have made up out 3rd and 4th line last year. Not to mention a full line of young studs in the AHL in Zucker, Coyle, and Larsson. Larsson by the way has really been playing well in the AHL, he started pretty slow but has come a long way in 30-some games.

Ya that first period made me a little nervous. Gotta love Z forcing Mcloud into the fight 3 mins into the game, Ive been waiting 3 years for someone to put that SOB in check. Boogaard,Staubitz, Kassian would have never forced him into that and Mcloud always ran away.

Wow did the power play look good! With Suter on top and Parise and Koivu working hard and Heatly sitting infront of the net looking for garbage works well.

Also I'm going to really like watching Parise, what a hussler, that's the kind of leader this team needs. The whole game I was thinking about what we used to look like when we had Havlat, what a difference.

Can't wait to see how they look tonight.

Nice game after the slow start, it was pretty sweet to see that power play churn along, what a potent group.

My thoughts exactly. On all accounts.

It's going to be a fun season, that's for sure.

    • Fake quote. I never said anything about 'Swans". I thought you were against fake quotes?    
    • The best light beer ever made!
    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
