Kessel is Gone

20 posts in this topic

Just scene it on ESPN Kessel signs 3 year deal. I'm a big gopher fan as big as they come and this hurts.

I saw the news this AM as well. Sorry Gopher fans. I'd rather see him play in the WCHA instead of the AHL if that's where he ends up. I feel sorry for him going to Boston, but maybe with the new regime things will change for the franchise. I guess this helps my 'Dogs though.

That's a great picture of him on ESPN.com. He looks like he needs to drop about 60 pounds. Actually, the picture reminds me of "Chunk" from the Gooney's movie.

He's still an ex-Gopher so I wish him the best of luck.

Lucia will have to go through his list of drafted players now and figure out who will fill his spot. grin.gif

What's up with Tyler Hersh (sp) coming back? I know he had a lot of points for the Gophers but I'm not sure about this move. Donny... Tyler's a little unstable don't you think?

This does not please me. Is Wheeler coming back for sure?

Jay Barriball will do just fine for the Gophies. He's better than Kessel.

Barriball better than Kessel? I hope your joking! Barriball is pretty small and would be much better off going to junior hockey before playing for the Gophers. Good skilled player though.

I think Bariball is playing in the USHL for a year before the Gophers.

Hockey Guy,

Actually, Jay is my nephew. I know absolutely zippo about hockey. I just had respond as Lucia said Barriball is moving up. Yes, he is pretty small but he has made it through so far. He apparently is good if he's on the Gophers. To me, pretty much every Hockey player is the same. The team that gets the puck to richocet the right way wins.

I could be wrong, but this is the situation as I understand it: Jay Barriball played a few games last year in the USHL but was expected to be a full time player this year. He already committed to play college hockey at the University of Minnesota for the 2007-08 season. Since it looks like a jail break at the U with everyone leaving early, Barriball would be called up to start this year by Lucia. They would have liked Jay to have a full year of USHL before college but he is a top notch player and should do fine if he plays this year.

You are right. They really wanted him to go to USHL. Jay did spend last spring out there. Their plan was to ship him out there and put some meat on his bones and try to get him stronger. I guess that changed as so many players are leaving early. Jay's going to have keep his eye open for those big Canucks chasing him around.

Barriball's 11 points so far is more than Kessel could muster last year. Plus Barriball's not a cheesehead. The Bruins can keep Kessel...

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
