I don’t buy into those preseason polls at all. How can Minnesota be ranked 3rd when they are starting 9 freshmen? Sure they’re supposed to be good freshmen, but they’re still freshmen. I also don’t know how they can rank Wisconsin 1st when they lost their top six point producers from last year. Didn’t they lose their goalie as well? I can’t remember.

All I care about is that the Gophers are there in the end. If I had to pick a WCHA favorite right now I would be leaning toward St. Cloud State. They didn’t lose any top players and Motzko really had those guys clicking at the end of last season.

I just can’t wait for college hockey to start up again. The off-season is waaaaaaay to long in hockey! Go Gophers.

Elliot is still in Wisconsin. He was so good last year it was easy for me to pick them as the national champs when he was injured and the Goph's were on top of the world. Going to be a lot tougher though without those upper classmen skaters.

Gophers will be good again, even after losing Kessel, Irmen, and Potulny. They are getting the number one pick afterall; hometown guy too. Still the Gophers have Briggs, and I just don't see them winning deep into the playoffs with this guy.

I went to Duluth, so I'm going to carry the lone torch for the 'Dogs. We've got a lot of Sophmores now and some Juniors. Maybe at least compete for 4th or 5th. Picked up some tickets for UM vs UMD today, I'm psyched.

I agree that SCSU looked tough late last year. Then of course you still have UND and the 2 CO schools. It's no wonder the national championship ALWAYS comes from the WCHA now!

--Also I'm looking forward to some clumsy Woog-er deliveries. I love that guy!

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
