Martin Skoula

13 posts in this topic

I haven't been watching too many game lately been pretty busy at night. But I did catch the 3rd period of last nights game and I noticed everytime Skoula touched the puck the crowd boo'd him, do the fans hate this guy that bad?? Also I think that is the 1st time in Wild history the fans actually don't like a player on the roster.

Poor Skoula. Unfortunately he's had a slight tendency to screw up late in the 3rd period. I think he's single-handedly lost like 3-4 games by mis-handling the puck around his own net. He's also got the worst plus/minus on the team. Some things can be a fluke, but he's lowest by quite a few.

Personally I tense up a bit when I see him handling the puck around our own goal.

He has not been playing the best of late. Poor turnovers and really poor misjudgments!

Seen him last night try to make a pass out of his own end and fanned on it and it almost cost them. Lots of turnovers. He stepped up his play toward the end of the year which made the Wild give him a 2yr deal.

He is terrible, he must have naked pictures of Lemaire or something. I don't know if the crowd was booing him or not, but it was a subject of conversation around our section last night. He was a healthy scratch for 4 games about 10 days ago, he looked better right away but he's back to being very tentative and unsure as to what to do once he gets the puck. There has got to be another option. The other thing I couldn't believe is WHEN he was out there, penalty kill, 4 on 4, overtime ect.

A week or so ago, the fans applauded very loudly when it was announced that he was a late scratch. He makes me nervous as well.

Yeah- I don't get it w/ him either. The LAST place he should be is out there on the PK. The puck is like poison when it touches his stick. Bad things happen and everyone sees it/knows it. I don't understand the lovefest w/ him and Lemaire at all.

lol

I agree with all of you! I shouldn't feel so nervous when he has the puck and its a simple breakout out of our own zone!

He is very durable as a defenseman (I think only 2 missed games in like 5 yrs) and he has a stanley cup championsship for experience, but I didn't like the deal when he came from Dallas and I don't really love him now.

Now if we could only get Kim Johhnson to score more.

Most over-rated Defenseman (when we acquired him, now we all know it was a mistake) in the league. 4.5 mil/year. Based on what??

      Thank you very much Outy22!

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.
