I hope not but I'm afraid it looks like they will.

Same here. They play the gritty, in your face hockey with all the little chippy stuff after the play. Unfortainately the Senators do not have the depth to duke it out with them. If the Sens would crash the net and get J S off his game they might have a chance. I just don't see it happening.

I hate it when southern teams win. I heard on kfan that there were more people watching the cup finals here in Minnesota than in LA. Now that's sad!!

I really hate to say it but I have to give a hand to the ducks for winning the cup. They played Tough defensive hockey all playoffs and were rewarded with the ultimate trophy. I hope as a fan of the Wild that I will be able to witness them raise the cup!!

The best team won the cup hands down. They were strong in every aspect of the game. It is probably true that more northern people watch the finals than people in the south. Go to Canada once. The NHL there is like the NFL here. On some nights when the Cup was on it was like the 4th or 5th story on ESPN. Sad.

Give me the NHL anyday over the NFL.

Don't get me wrong, I like football, but Hockey is better! grin.gif

It was fun watching them guys play, I hope the Wild will be there next year! grin.gif

It's not that I don't think the Ducks were not the better team.....they were. I just like it better when the fans appreciate it more.

I Love the WILD and I can't thing of anything worse than watching the Ducks esp. Brad May hoisting the cup and giving the cup a kiss . Call me a sore loser or whatever but this sucks.They are good but man that is one dirty f'in team and it makes me sick to know that they are stanley cup champs for a year!

Even if Cali can not appreciate the Cup MN can. Bemidji's own Joe Motzko had his day with the Cup yesterday. Big news here. Even though he only played two minutes in the Finals he got it and had the generosity to share it with people who can appreciate it.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
