Wild Starting Strong (like last year), can they keep it up?

12 posts in this topic

The math doesn't lie, the Wild is on pace to go 82-0.

Last year the started strong and then got hit by injuries. Can they do better this year?

Any predictions for the year? I still think they are 5-8 seed.

If they can stay healthy, and the goaltending remains strong, Like I think it will, they will have a good season!

This is the year! I'm predicting a Stanley Cup for the Wild now that they have some maturity. You're witnessing the beginning of an era as we speak! wink.gif

I agree with you, Tonka Boy. We've been building a team for years and now it is go time. The acquisitions that were made the last couple of years have put us up there with the other contenders. And like any team in the NHL, staying healthy determines your season's fate.

I agree 100%, this team is fun to watch! I read an article that Demitra wants out, that would be a blow for the wild

[in robotic monotone voice] I think Backstrom's save percentage will remain at 98%. I think his goals against average will lead the league. Demitra, Gaborik and Walls are the best first line in the league. I really believe this team can go 82-0. Jacques Lemaire is brilliant. Doug Risebrough's moves have been genius. I think the Wild will win 3 Stanley Cups in a row. The only thing that can stop them is injury or getting complacent.

Well, they are the last undefeated team in the NHL. I would like to see how they react once they get their first losing streak or if Backstrom struggles between the pipes. I said before that they would be a 5 seed and I am sticking to it. Don't get me wrong I hope they finish #1 but I still say 5. They are 5-0 and Gabby hasn't gotten hot yet. Go Wild!!

The team seams to come and go with gabby. If he is hurt like last year, we will struggle. If he is healthy for the whole year(yeah right) then look out. We will be very tough.

But it comes down to scoring in the playoffs, we struggle every year.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.
