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

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
