SI recently announced that St.Paul is the new Hockeytown, USA. Sounds better here than in Detroit, MI.

Yeah, I seen that. They said in Detroit ticket sales were down and the were not selling out the Joe anymore. Hockeytown, USA is not Detroit, MI it is St. Paul, MN!!!!!

they did a good job in a short article describing how important hockey is here. It goes beyond the pro game unlike Philly and Det. Ive met some folks from Buffalo and they can be almost considered Canadian in the way they feel about hocley.

Any place with a failed/failing Ford plant is off the hockeytown list.

A failing Ford plant is just a matter of time, and there will be more with the recalls they are issuing.

I thought Eveleth was Hockeytown.

For percentage of population, these northern cities probably have more players in hockey than St. Paul.

What in the world would a failing Ford plant in ST. Paul or Detroit have to do with the topic of this thread?????

MN is the State of Hockey! We have a long rich tradition to be proud of that no other town or state can compare. So lets be proud of all the players from Warroad to Wabasha and Morehead to Mora. Heck we are the home to the Hanson Brothers. And then there are so many good teams in college and high school, even old timer leagues. Remember the Miracle on Ice was not the sole work of Jim Craig and Mike Eruzione, I believe there were some guys and maybe a coach from MN. Come to think of it Boston did not even get mentioned in that article. So it stands to reason that Hockeytown USA is the capital of the State of Hockey.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
