Look out-here come the Physical and I mean Physical Flames to our pond tomorrow. I watched them push around the Wings last night and yep, they won again. Only 1 pt. behind us now. The announcers for the Wings were complaining about all the cheap shots by Flames- especially Phaneuf. High stickings not called, cross-checks, boarding, punching guys after EVERY whistle, and the refs swallowed their whistles, basically. They are going to come in here tomorrow and do more of the same. Will we answer the bell?- or go Skoula-like? I am concerned. Who/when are some guys going to step-up?

Yeah, I like how long our 6pt lead lasted... The Wild better step up and be just as if not more physical than Calgary. It's been pretty sad to see them get pushed around a bit the last few games (the hits on Gaborik after the whistle etc.). Maybe another fight for Rolston...grin.gif.

Iginlia scares me, especially against the Wild.

He represents all that we are lacking: goal scoring, willingness to get in front of the net, leadership (stands up for the team)and the toughness factor. He's the total package....

Wild been geeting pushed around all year, not just the last few games. That's been a problem against our NW Div. rivals all year. The most physical division in the NHL, without a doubt. Maybe we can get Plett or Carlson to come out of retirement for a few weeks... If the refs swallow their whistles tomorrow as they did last night in Calgary, we are really in the hurt bag.

Calgary looked sharp IMO. They shut down a great offense.

The Wild are rested now, hopefully it will be a good game. It's playoff hockey in Feb.!!

Wild down 1 after the 1st, they played good but Calgary is more physical Voros getting cheap shotted after every whistle with no penalties getting called then he gets called for a high stick that wasn't even a penalty. They got to get some offense in the second.

It looked pretty close on the Wild goal that was disallowed because the officials said that the puck was pushed in with the goalie. They kept replaying it on the scoreboard while the officials were explaining the call and the boos just kept getting louder. Calgary looked sharp today. The Wild had their chances, but Kiprusoff shut them down. We outshot them by more than 2-1 but couldn't convert.

I was at the X today but on the other end when Voros goal waved off. Why that was not reviewed in Toronto? Because it was immediately waved off? I don't get it. Their guy kicked it in! Again, we had a lot of shots, but I can count on one hand how many of those shots were bonafide scoring chances. These guys just refuse to play physical. That is why we are below Calgary and Vancouver now more than any other reason. It is going to be another 1st round and done unless Lemaire gets these guys to play physical, play-off type hockey. Vancouver and Calgary are doing to us all year exactly the same recipe the Ducks did in the playoffs-pounding us the few times we actually get in front of the net and pounding us on the boards. Risebrough can bring in Sundin, Jokkinen,whoever and it won't change nothin if no-one is willing to get the nails dirty. Very frustrating to see this game after game. Not off the bandwagon, just getting old.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
