what are your thoughts on the Koivu incident?

15 posts in this topic

I think what ohlund did was awful and cowardly. I watch every game and I'm willing to say Koivu did put an elbow to his noggin' but if ohlund took such offense to it challenge him to drop the gloves get it over with and move on. Now it's going to get ugly (and interesting) my opinion whats yours? Here comes Boogaard grin.gif

It's to bad Ohlund won't be in uniform because he is serving his suspension. Go after their best player...I guess one of the Sedin boys. I hate them!

This discussion is bringing up a part of the Wild’s game I have never understood. I know about the “unwritten code” when it comes to hitting skilled players from other teams, but I honestly think that Lemaire needs to send someone like Voros or Radio out there to smoke those freaky twins. Screw Vancouver! All bets are off when it comes to playing these guys as far as I’m concerned.

Like I said, I don’t understand that part of the Wild’s game. They should hit all the guys that consistently put up big numbers against them. Sakic (even though I think he’s awesome), Ryan Smith, Iginla, the freakish twins, Naslund, Hemski, and whomever else I’m not thinking about. You can’t have Boogaard out against these guys because he can’t skate well enough to hardly stand up as it is. Therefore he would be too much of a liability out there against them. But Voros, Radio, Foy, and even Burns could put a hurtin’ down on these guys. If the other team tries to retaliate with their goon, that’s when you throw Boogie out there!

What Ohlund did to Koivu was cheap and cowardly. Every person on that team should have fear in the back of their mind for the rest of the season when they play the Wild! Koivu is one of our best players, so nobody on their team should be off limits.

Is it pretty obvious that I’m not a democrate?

I was thinking along similar lines as Hockey Guy. I think the first time Naslund and the twins are out for a faceoff, the Wild should send out the scrappers. And as soon as the puck is dropped...Like the Buffalo/Ottawa game.

I actually think the Dec.2nd game is when the s**t is going to hit the fan when Ohlund is back playing (plus I"LL be at that game) si I have my fingers crossed all the aggresion is spent this wednesday. The more I see that slash the more cowardly it is. I HATE THE NUCKS, DUCKS, AND nevermind

Well... Vancouver called up a fighting goon from their minor league team for Wed. night. I think his name is Brown. Let's see what you got Brown...

It's too bad, but Boogard beating up another goon isn't retaliation. Someone needs to step up with one of the Canucks offensive players.

I wonder how much retaliation Ohlund will see when he comes back? Will Lemaire hold them back?

I think Lemaire will let boogard loose on ohlund when he is back. look at when Brad May and Anheim met up with the wild, it didn't take long for Boogieman too drop his gloves!

Lemaire better let Boogaurd loose on Dec 2.....that's my birthday! What better present than getting to see Boogaurd beat the crap out of some cheapshot artist?? I can't think of much that would be better! It'd be even cooler to see it in person though!

Wild looked pathetic tonight. Vancouver deserved to win. No offense for the Wild. They keep this up and it will be a long season. We need Koivu and Demitra back to do anything. I say we dump Pavol for young players/cap relief.

They did look pretty bad and they didn't go after any Canucks like they should have shocked.gif

Who ever said that someone besides Boogaurd should drop the gloves with one of their better players is exactly right. No one on that team wanted to scrap with him, and with him on the ice, it is pretty much 5 on 4. I am not a hockey genius by any means but I do think that if you have to play the same team 8 times a season, you shouldn't go out there and play scared.

Well congrats to the Canucks, they beat the wild for the 4th straight game??? and they have us running scared.

Gaborik looked good though. Just think how good he would be if he learned to pass the puck once in a while frown.gif

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
