Wild have really struggled the last 2 weeks. Another loss tonight 3-2 to the Hurricanes. Tied in points with the Flames and Calgary has a game in hand. These last 15 games or so will be interesting.

It sounds like the flu is running through the team. I hope thats all the problem is anyway. Just seems like they aren't in sync.

We need better goaltending and a much better powerplay. Good thing we improved at the trade deadline.

They'll be lucky to make the playoffs. They are choking it away they had a 6 point lead a couple weeks ago. Just making the playoffs isn't good enough they need to start a series at home there not a good road team in the playoffs.

I just think some of you wait for the Wild to go on a skid, and jump all over them! I didn't hear a peep from anyone when they won those 3 games in a row!!

The wild will be fine, They will pull together and make a nice run into the playoffs! There are to many leaders on this team to let the team fall apart. Go Wild, Big game tonight, one game at a time!

Really, thats what I was thinking, they are in good shape! If they were in last, then moved into second everyone would be happy, but since it is so close in the standings, with alot of teams from both conferences, the ranking have changed many times, I havent been to excited about it. I would rather they slid now, then in the playoffs! It really isnt going to make much difference if we are 3rd, or 8th, everyone is playing hard, and the teams we would play can change many times in the next 15 games.

Go Wild!

Great Point!! The western Confrence is so close, It really don't matter to me who we play in the playoffs, I guess I wouldn't wanna see Detroit or Dallas, but we gotta beat the best to hold the cup!

I love the Wild I'm not trying to jump all over them but Jeez last year they lost the division by 1 point....... What did they do in Anaheim nothing. They had a 6 point lead two weeks ago is what I'm saying and as there losing two games in a row Calgary won the other night and moved into first place last night by just being Idle those are the nights you gotta win to get some separation in the division. Team is just not as good on the road and I think the only chance they have to win a playoff series is it has to start at home. And Colorado won last night there back 1 point from us and Vancouver won last night there 3 points back. Let's hope they go on a little run and gain first place back. ATL has lost 8 in a row is tonight a must win????

They have had a tough stretch as of late, however; I belive it is 5 or 6 points seperate 5 teams...a lot can happen very quickly, if the Wild turn around the special teams that will help take the pressure off of Beckstrom and will definitly aid in their playoff hunt, which I believe they will make, just wonder how far they will go this year...if hitting on all cylinders at the right time they can be tough to beat...

Yea I think if they make the playoffs if they win a series and gain momentum it might be able to carry them for a while.

I will bet all it will take is for Gabby to get red hot and the rest of the team will respond! Its like a domino affect, Gabby starts scoring, then Roloston will start scoring so on down the line!

I am a anti-wild fan because their fans are so apologetic to the club.

1-3 against the worst division in hockey. Wild are going the wrong way. How can you say nothing is wrong with the Wild when they can't beat teams they are suppose to beat. Same old story, get up a goal and hang on. I think the Wild will miss the playoffs.

Yep. That was another great Wild game. How long was it since Atlanta had won a game? I love hearing the announcers excuses too. We keep playing desperate teams and hot goalies.......

it seems as though the wild go through these scoring slumps every now and then. we lose to atlanta, that was bad, at least we got a point, we needed two. we have lot of divisional games to close the regular season, they better get hot now.

If and that is a big if, they make the playoffs, it will be like last year. They will get pushed all over the ice, hammered in the corners, etc. Last year they went into the playoffs with the best second half record in the league-and look how they got done by the Ducks. They are nowhere near last years level of play right now, so I would also be amazed if they even made the playoffs. Flames, Nucks, Avs all playing better that we are over the last 15 games or so. No creativity, grit, hustle, etc. Good idea to sit Parrish when you can't score, too. Much better to put Radio out there who takes a stupid penalty with 6 minutes left which of course they scored on. Brutal.

It was a tough loss lastnight, and it has been a tough stretch of games but WOW most of you guys just want to hang it up, season over! The Wild we make the payoffs, I don't know how far they will make it in the playoffs but aleat they will have a chance to get on a roll! I have never seen so many fair weather fans, not even in the Vikings forum!

I'm definitely not a fair weather fan. That's why I'm so fed up-because this team has the most talent on paper as Wild have ever had, and should go deep into the playoffs but they are not getting it done. You can see it on their faces during interviews, their demeanor on the ice, etc. Watch another game on TV and see how other teams are skating, hustling, pounding the opponents into the boards in their end, crashing the net,etc.This team does none of that and there is no reason why they can't. But, they won't. That is the frustration. This isn't the Lightning or the Thrashers. This team is better than it is showing but they just won't work. I'm with them through thick and thin but lets get honest about their level of play. It sucks. Lemaire has lost them. He's tried every trick in the book.

Its a slump, relax, all pro teams go through it! As a fan you have to go through the highs and the lows, thats what makes the season so much fun and rewarding at the end if your team wins it all!!

That was the most boring first 19 minutes of the 3rd until Rolston's shot tied it. Gaborik should have won it in OT if it wasn't for Marleau batting the puck out of the air just before it was going in.

Backstrom has to be the worst shootout goalie there is. I will lookup some stats and see what his W's and save pct. is in shootouts.

      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
    • DonBo
      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
    • leech~~
      Well hopefully you can still get out with Dad another weekend yet this winter. Building memories are things that last.

      I upgraded from my Little Buddy to a Portable Buddy (not a Big Buddy which seemed like over kill for a 2-3 man portable).  I figured that would work best for my needs.  Turns out I was right.  The heater warmed my 949i enough that I could fish with my gloves off which was nice.  I definitely noticed though as soon as a tank ran out, it got chilly quick since I had a few holes open to allow some fresh air in. My dad chickened out since he would be coming from WI and it was snowing over there still the roads were slick (as they were here also).  Also made sense since we didn't know how well the shack would stay warm.  So I stayed close to home.  I was going to head to Cedar Lake near New Prague since it appears to have a healthy pan fish population to keep me entertained, but the guy I talked to at Prior Lake Bait & Tackle said Prior was a better bet, so I took his advice.  I started fishing about 10 am after finding a spot and getting setup in about 20 FOW in the basin away from the crowds.  I only managed to connect on a few dink perch, one that was borderline keeper size that I threw back just before heading home about 5:30.  I didn't mark a single suspended fish in my spot.  I drilled some holes in various depths not far from my shack but still didn't find any marks and got cold and headed back into my warm shack. I had a fathead on a tip up in case a hungry walleye came by but had no takers.  A tip I heard recently was to hook them through the butt and out the side, which makes them sort of upside down which they hate so they continue to struggle and move in the water the whole time trying to right them selves.  I dropped by camera down and watched this and it seemed to work to keep it moving, although I didn't catch anything so who knows if the fish actually like it.

      Not sure what's going on  but I'm still loosing track of days. Bouncing around in the red baron, checking on customers ,enjoying the football game at Hillmens Tall tale Tavern man was that fun, getting a few games of pool in last night to practice for my next match. Playing a round of texas hold em with the wells fargo boys in north dakota, visiting with all the customers, moving houses, plowing new roads, plowing old roads, battling mother nature, the winds were howling  sunday night after another small dumping of snow.
       I wrote in my note book on Wednesday the 17th CLOSED.
       The fishing has been crazy good? Not sure what's that all about but will take it as its so nice to see everyone catching more then a  few.
       Stevejames won my giveaway on Minnesota Outdoorsman, I have been giving a way a free night as a prize on there fishing challenge for a few years. He arrived Friday for old Minnesota with his buddy Mike and there 2 boys Nolan and Ayden. They rented one day so they were here for 2 nights and did real well. I got a great pic of there stringer of fish, It was a treat seeing the kids  outside playing ,enjoying the great outdoors.
       Terry, Sarha ,Carl and Kenny were in florida for 3 nights. They also had a grand time on a grand lake. This was there third year with me. They said they will be back again next year if I will have them? There such nice people, I was able to visit off and on wth them as they fed me breakfast burritos , French dips after the Viking game. Carl got 4 deer  so they also brought me a care package of venison. I'm making my coleslaw for them next year and may treat them to a night of my cooking to boot. I mentioned to Sarah the first day she should tie a string to her fishing pole? OOPs darn if it did not go down a hole.
       Scott the wells fargo boys have also did well, they went to Westwind for fish and the Viking game and also had a hoot. Then when they got back to the house Scott got treated to "yes a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie" A beautiful 14 a half inch masterpiece. Another great group of guys and they got my 10 dollars last night. I played a little to loose and lost all my chips.
       Mel, Dan and Dane arrived for old Minnesota sunday, I told Dan get a line down first thing. Before they were unpacked they had 2  in the bucket. Yesterday Dane was catching fish on the rattle wheel from the top bunk. They enjoyed Fish for dinner last night as Mel is a master chef, she also fed me hodgepodge for breakfast yesterday. They have been coming up here for 14 years summer and winter.
       Snowbear Josh headed home for a couple days so I'm taking care of a couple of his guest and they were slaying the fish the last two days.
       I just talked to Jarred and his buddie Jim they were in montana last night and got there 8.
       Angie and here hubbie and there friends were in montana sunday.  I think they ended up with 9 with there friends, The kids fished in one of Joshes 2 man houses and there friends went home sunday eve,.
        Mother nature has been kicking my but. Yesterday I plowed off and on all day, cleaning up the drifts. Buddy Hillmens Highway is again in great shape. I expect we will be making more main roads in the next day or two.
       I did here form Brandon I had set up in a secret spot and they also did real well Friday eve,
      Ken and his buddies also did well where I plowed them a spot. Throwing darts and hitting bulls eyes feel good. Well its past my starting time. we start at 9, so again its time to check the fluids and hit the ice on such a Grand lake that owes us nothing! Nothing!
