wild fall 0-2?

10 posts in this topic

best goaltender in the league going into the playoffs, and one of the best teams since the all-star break and this is what they put on the ice. Where is the wild team I watched this season? It's the playoffs, this is where stars are born So far the wild have no stars. The powerplay is brutal. I would expect this sub-par performance from the vikings but not the wild. Maybe for the rest of the year they could put on the maroon and gold and talk about how great the regular season was.

They could sure help themselves if they would stay out of the box. Way too many penatlies.

I have to note that Gaborik doesnt look like he is even on the ice....I saw some clips last night of him and he wasnt skating, stick handling, passing....did he even want to be on the ice?? I just hope someone spices up this team..They can be awesome and go far....JUST NEED TO WANT TOO!!!

Anaheim is to big. If you notice when the puck is in the corner our guy is getting rocked everytime he goes to pass the puck. Anaheim is finishing off their checks everytime. Another thing, when Bryzgalov freezes the puck and there is a Wild player anywhere near the net they get dumped to the ice or two-handed in the back. When Backstrom makes a save their is little commotion. Burns did step up last night. He really rocked that guy with the first punch. Anaheim is just to big for the little Wild. We have one guy that can hit and he plays 5 minutes a night(Boogie). Kim Johnsson stinks, Power play stinks, PK stinks. Pronger is the best defenseman ever. Hope the Wild can turn it around quick. Ducks in 5

It may be too late to turn it around but we'll see. I've always thought the Wild were a touch over-rated this year and this series may speak to that.

Ok guys, If any of you have game 6 tickets send them to me! I hate fair weather fans. If they can be called fans at all. If you noticed the wild and ducks have split the regular season. Each winning twice at home. I know a lot of of you cant watch the games but after the second period last night I think they figured out how to play. They just ran out of time. Plus if they had scored on that face off late in the third you guys would be talking about how great the comeback was. You have to remember MN has the best ice in the NHL and the pond has always been rated very low. I do think blaming it on Gabby is wrong when Rolston and Bouchard have not even put up a single point.

I think it will be Wild in 6 games,4 striaght W's.

They need to shoot the puck!!!!!!! If they can't get it on net then shoot it shorts side a little wide and look for one of those bounces that happened during the final 5. The Reffing is inconsistant, as a coach I like to give the refs the benifit of the doubt because it is a very fast paced game but these guys stink. Shoot the puck and keep your feet moving. GO WILD!!!!!!!!!!

Another one-goal loss. Holding Anaheim to two, three, and two goals...defensively, the Wild are all right, and the goaltending is good if not outstanding.

But one-for-fifteen on the power play won't get it done in the playoffs. A couple opportunistic PP goals in those first couple games would put a different look on this series.

Wow! that sucked! My god, this franchise has the luxury of loyal fans who buy all the tickets for every game they have ever played and this is the garbage they put on the ice. They say this is the team of 18,000 I would say after tonight it's the team of 17,975 and the 25 that really matter haven't shown up yet. Where is Demitra, Gaborick, Rolston, and Parrish? I know that the Ducks are limiting these guys but if the Ducks can shut them down this easy than the wild have alot of work to do this off-season. This seasons will be over soon, I just hope we don't have to wait another 4 seasons for playoff hockey in minnesota.

    • Walleye #1
        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
