Anyone here a Boogaard fan?

Recommended Posts

fishingdad

I was wondering if anyone is as happy as I am that Boogie is now with the WILD for 3 years. I just love it when he is on the ice I know he's not the most gifted skater blah, blah, blah. but when he's out there it sure is a he!! of alot of fun to watch and see what may happen I still get goose bumps when I watch the replay of game 4 of the Ducks playoff game after all the B.S. when the crowd started chanting Boogaard Boogaard and he skated out on the ice

Yes, I am!

He makes the game more exciting, and is fun to watch!

I heard his little brother is also into Hockey, any chance the he will play for the Wild also?

I would not have been a happy fan if they would not have signed Boogaard. He is awesome to watch on the ice. He knows his role and what I like about him is once he has a guy hurt he will hold back(usually) and not totally destroy someone when he has a clear shot to do some serious damage. What does bother me is when several players from the opposing team will surround him and start pushing him and if he retaliates in the slightest he gets called for a penalty. Can't wait for fall fishing and watching the Wild again.

Some may not agree with me but for an enforcer he is actually a pretty good player.

I agree with you on that. Most enforcers are goons, not him. He was coming around towards the end of the season, getting more scoring chances and getting in front of the net. Going to be fun watching him the next 3 years

He makes the games interesting to watch, even when they are down 4-0

Huge Boogaard fan here. While back I believe Fox 9 did a little piece on him and his brother who operate a hockey fighting school.

I think Derek is great moving and shaking in front of the net, crashing the net.

He is needed so other thugs don't run our guys and leave them splattered all over the plexiglass. Believe me, other guys think twice about doing the above because they know they will have to answer the bell with Boogey.

If you don't like hockey don't watch. He is a big part of the team!

I also like the fact that the other team is usually so focused on taking a run at him etc. that he either draws a penalty or we make a big play.

Why does LeMaire not seem to like the guy though? Every time you read something in the paper from Coach about Boogaard it's always "He's got to get better." This was even last week.

I guess he doesn't want him for just the enforcer role, he wants him to produce. More like old Basil McRae used to be for the North Stars.

I think he likes him I think he is just trying to push him to get him to keep working on being a better hockey player not just an enforcer.

Dont get me wrong, I like watching boogaard skate, its kind of comical and he makes the kind of boering minnesota offence a little more fun to watch.

But when it comes down to it, he is nothing but a GOON.

Most people in Hockey know it exspecially Lmaire.

He only plays like 3 to 5 minnutes a game, But somehow he is a good player? Not sure how that is possible.

Now I agree he is not in the running for League MVP, and I see LeMaire's point, but he is good for one other thing: He sells a few more tickets. Has to be considered in this day and age.

He protects our good players, He might not be the best skater but other teams know if they cheap shot one of our best skaters, they will have to deal with the boogie man. he is essential to have on our team

Just like back in the day with Basil Mcrae and Shane Churla. Any team messed with Broten, Modano any of the good players back then they would have to answer to these 2 guys. They arent the best skaters or puck handlers but they protect our best.

Once again, I agree for the most part. All Im saying is if He is your favorite wild player, your more of a UFC fan than you are a Hockey fan. I love him, but as far a skill, not to sure about that.

Also, now I wish the old stars did not have a couple of those tough guys when madano was playing. Let guys rough the old rat face up all they want. grin.gif

(Yeah, Im still a little bitter about the whole thing, norm green and every thing else).

How about that Burns? He is going to be one fine player for years to come.

I love Boogie, but I would trade him for big Georges Laraque any day. Georges has skill and toughness. I would REALLY like to see the Wild make a run at Dion Phaneuf next year when he is a free agent. That kid is a great skill player and tough as nails. He made Boogie look like a fool a couple times last year.

Hockey Guy- I agree that the Wild should go after Dion Phaneuf. He is a very good hockey player. Big shot, heavey hitter, and no one messes with anybody when he is out there. Plus he is young. Very fun to watch him when he is on TV.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.
