Wild Regular Season 2017-18


Recommended Posts

Agree Bear...it is going to be a crazy finish for both Conferences...trade dealine less than a month away and those that think they can will pull the trigger...those that don't or cannot afford to won't...but there will be movement soon IMO. I see Preds already talked Fisher into coming out of retirement for the stretch run.

I didn't say you edited anything, I just though it was an convenient cutoff for you given that 3 of our better players just turned 25. Listen you are the one calling for Leopold to blow up the team an

Not sure what to make of this team lately, they have been all over the place winning, losing, score, getting blow out, you name it. Need to get on some kind of winning streak here to make up some grou

Well nothing wrong with 3 of 4 points against the Preds and Bruins, still the Preds are in a mini slump and Bruins missing 5 starters. Just keep getting points any way possible.

I really hope we don't do much this trade deadline unless it is some kind of long term move, there is zero cap space so our hands might be tied anyway. 

 

 

It seems like the last couple years our moves to help the team actually hurt the team.  I am all for just letting this one ride out with the roster we have.

Today's daily projections from The Atheletic have us making it in the 8th spot...projections consider all upcoming schedules for all teams...but does not consider any projected injuries of course.

 

We should go on a good run here with a bunch of home games and a very favorable Feb schedule the rest of the way.  Time to make the climb cuz it gets tough towards the end of the season.

 

Minor move today to pick up a Dman and clear some space for Greenway possibly joining

for some reason the wild have problems with bad teams at home, I believe Edmonton beat us at home also, along with some others. if we could just win these games at home that we should, we make the playoffs easy. the good thing is the upcoming teams are much better teams, so we have a better chance to win.:confused:

Man, the Hawks are bad. We didn't getting many scoring chances, but even though the Hawks had 44 shots, they were not in what would be considered Grade A scoring chances.

Good defensive game to force everything outside. Dubnyk played great.

I have been reading some of the Hawks fans tweets, etc and I thought we had some bandwagon fans, but good Lord they are far worse!

Agree BHawks are terrible and saw those same tweets....it is just the cost of success IMO. 3 cups in the last 8 yrs tough to keep the group together, lower draft choices, CAP space issues, aging stars...give them a few yrs they'll be back on top...and I do appreciate their passion for the game.

The Hawks get run out of the building by the Coyotes, 6-1, last night in Arizona.  Is Crawford really that good of a goalie to keep them in it all these years.

 

No...he's good but not that good....tending is only part of the problem. Q has lost the team IMO.

The hawks are a shell of their former selves, Toews isn't as good as he once was, Keith and Seabrook have fallen off a cliff and they are in cap hell. With that said I think any team in the league would trade spots with them in a heartbeat if they could put together a ten year run like they had. Crawford going down certainly pushed them over the edge as well, they could bounce back but I don't think you will ever see another dominant Hawks team unless they pull off some kind of miracle rebuild, even then that looks hard to do with Toes, Kane, Seabrook & Keith making 33 million until 2022-23. Still those guys deserve their $$$ for what they did.

I would trade shoes with the Hawks in a heartbeat, but man, it could be a bumpy ride for them now. They had a heckuva run. They were one of the most feared teams in the league for 10 years and now they are a stat padder which is kind of sad.

 

We need a win tonight. The Rangers have been playing much better after the GM wrote an open letter basically telling everyone he didn't have faith in them and they were going to do a yard sale with the roster.

Seeler gets his NHL Debut. Hopefully he doesn't get exposed, but I like his size, physical nature. He was a bit suspect playing the puck IMO during his college days, but I haven't seen him play in a while.

If it weren't for injuries there would be 9 Minnesota players on the ice tonight. Sounds like McDonagh is out.

The Staal line needs a little help, not sure if Greenway is ready for prime time yet but I haven't seen anything from Ennis saying he should keep that spot. I don't want Fletcher to make anything crazy moves at the trade deadline but a cheap upgrade at wing for Staal & Nino would be nice.

Agree...this is a huge game...beating the 2 bottom dwellers at home against Chi and NYR has not proven much IMO...beat both Wash and Anaheim then we are on a roll.  Really no reason to lose tonight....playing very well as a team...at home...Dubs has been stellar. Other teams are stumbling a little so we have a chance to create more separation.

    • Mileage can be relative.....my last wheeler had 10,000+ miles on it and I sold it to a friend. He is still riding it with over 13,000. Since that time I have put over 6000 on my current one. I was going to update this year but decided against it since they are so hard to come by right now. (and I still love this one)  I am admittedly a diehard Honda owner and have never and likely wouldn’t shop for anything else. I’ve had 13 different ATVs in the 44 years I’ve owned them and to this day not one has ever had a warranty visit. I think that speaks volumes.  I don’t baby my machine, it’s seen it’s share of mud 😉 but I maintain it well. I’d have no hesitation to take it anywhere, or sell it to a friend. Rundrave gave you some good sound advice for shopping, but don’t let mileage be your main determining factor. Well-maintained is better than low miles in many cases.  I do repairs on ATVs for friends, relatives etc, and aside from general appearance , the main things that I’d watch for on older machines is loose or noisy wheel bearings, brakes that don’t work well or drag, cv axles and boots and seals. Look at fluids, especially front and rear differentials, engine oil and antifreeze if it’s a liquid cooled machine. As far as tires, meh, I personally pulled off my new stock ones and replaced them before it had even been out of the garage, so the stock ones are like brand new. People replace them for all sorts of reasons including where they ride and what they use it for. 
    • Its hard to say, 1k miles in mud and beaten on could be worse than a well maintained machine with 5k that saw easy use.   I always look at the seat,  the exhaust pipe and tires. If the seat is worn, has holes etc it been ridden hard. If you can still read the logo and it doesn't have any rips or tears that says a lot.  If the exhaust header pipe and muffler is rusty its seen a lot of mud and water. If the tires are not OEM it had the original tires worn off. What did they replace them with and why? If they replaced it with big mud tires they rode in mud etc. Talk to the owner, make sure they kept up on maintenance. You will get a good feel for how it was used. Old man that just checked fields and livestock but high miles or young guy that mud rode with his buddies etc.   For under $5k I would just suggest looking for a machine  with EFI thats shaft drive . Carbs are great and most have pull start as a back up but I would have a hard time trusting an old carb unless your not afraid to dive into one yourself. Stay away from anything with chains and sprockets. They were unreliable and I wouldn't buy a one new off the showroom floor.
    • Under 5K. Looking at the list of Craig, that puts me in late 90's early 2000's machine for the most part with a few newer in that range.    What is considered high miles for an ATV? Most I see are in the 2000 range. 
    • what's your budget?   any of the newer machines in the last 10yrs will be reliable regardless of brand. get power steering if you can swing it    I am actually shopping hard right now myself. Looking to spend $5k to $7500 but prices are crazy right now. If I go any higher I might as well get a SxS. New prices are ridiculous for both.    I am just looking for that low mileage machine that someone never used and wants to get rid of. They are out there someone just keeps gets to them before I do.
    • I've never owned an ATV and ridden very few. I am looking to get a used machine for my hunting property. It will be mainly used for food plot creation and maintenance as well as some snow plowing. Any recommendations or things to look for?
    • shut down facebook      I miss the glory days on here and seeing these builds 
    • I did exactly the same thing, those pictures are invaluable. Mine starts with the bare trailer the day I brought it home. Man, that was a lot of work hours ago.  What needs to be done to get people back on HSO? 
    • What he said ^^^^^^^   I created a "build book" that I keep in the fish house. It is fun to look back and reminisce on the building of the shack when fishing is slow. I took measurements of the main runs before spray foaming and wrote them in. I is also easy to count the number of pine boards each run is up on the inside..... One of the other benefits of finishing from the inside to the outside!          
    • How tough is it to get drawn for wi? A few buddies would try for the first 2 seasons and we have an uncles farm to hunt on so property isn’t an issue. 
    • Your state's farm credit agency.  They cannot be beat because they operate under coop rules with federal protections.
