Wild Offseason

Draft in a couple of weeks, we pick 18, should be some decent players in that area. No one is perfect but I like the way our management has been drafting. No 2nd rounder because of the Moulson trade.

I wonder what Moulson will fetch as a free agent? If he is reasonable I say sign him. The guy knows how to score goals.

I also wonder what Nino's contract is going to look like. I hope it's something like 4 years $3m per or less..

Bye bye Heatley and Bryzgolav! Now if they can find away to send Brodziak packing..

Pass on Moulson, he's not bad but he is just a little too slow and soft for me, not sure he has an extra playoff gear.

The kids will probably get 2-3yr deals. If we go for anyone, it's going to be nothing more than that 2-3yr term veteran who can help bridge the gap between the kids being kids and turning into vets.

I hope we get Stoner back. Moulson is gone for sure. Brodziak is only a year from being gone.

I'm interested to see what happens on draft day, just because it's Fletcher. I also want to see what Folin looks like in Sept. He could be a nice addition.

+1 Better way to spend those dollars and fill a jersey than on him that is for sure!

Anyone think the Wild will take a run at Brad Richards with his recent free agent status? He might make a solid addition to the 2nd line, as long as they don't try to give a 34 yr old a long expensive contract.

I could possibly see Brad Richards in a Wild sweater but only for the right price. Should be interesting how much he will get.

I'm still thinking the Wild will be making some kind of move via trade but I haven't heard a lot yet.

Rangers just bought that guy out for $20m.. I'd pass unless we can give him a contract that fits a 2nd line player.

I'm predicting a WILD week ahead. Fletch to make some kind of big move.

I'll say Brodziak/Backstrom are moved along with a prospect or 2. I'd love to see Evander Kane in a Wild sweater!!!

The Brodz and Backs trade idea has certainly been picking up steam. Key there is Backs health. Which from what I read earlier he has been improving greatly. He needs a clean bill of health or no one will touch him. His contract isnt that bad. Pretty cheap actually. That wouldnt be the red flag for a trade, just the injury piece.

The draft is tonight. Will be interesting to see what happens up to the Wild's pick. Fletcher was quite clear what they were planning to do in the draft. They could jump up, drop back or stay where they are. Interested to see if he keeps his word. :-)

Brodz won't bring much that's for sure. Fletch indicated Moulson, Bryz, Prosser, Heatley, Rupp will not be re-signed.

I am fine with all those non-moves. Brodz may not get much, but bundle him and a pick and we can get some value I think. He is solid on faceoffs and PK, so there are teams that are looking for a 5th line center. :-)

imo Brodziak is the type of player that you hardly notice. Doesn't make alot of mistakes and plays pretty average. Doesn't produce alot offensively but doesn't cost us. There's gotta be a below average to average team out there that needs a depth player and he's not a bad option.

Well I wanted the Wild to get bigger and Tuch has that. From what I watched the last couple days I was really liking Sonny Milano around 18 but Tuch is the bigger body...... except now I have to pull for another BC player (Gilmor), ICK!

I like that pick. Milano is a YouTube sensation but wonder how that will translate to college and the pros. He has good hands but I agree the size of Tuch is what we needed there.

Why does the NHL let about 6 poker faced management level staffers march onto the stage just to hand the draftee a hat and jersey and take a photo?

Then they walk off and most of the them leave the draftee to bring up the rear.

The NFL and NBA system is better. Just a photo with the commissioner and the team managers can do they're photos in the media room later.

"System" ? Dohkay.

The NBA draft is a complete joke.

I suspect the Wild wanted Milano too but happy to have Tuch, big and skilled, sounsd like another Nino or Coyle type player and who doesn't want more of those guys around.

Milano does look great on youtube but they do need to get bigger. The Finnish goalie intrigues me a bit.

A 17 year old at 6-1 209 might not be the type of goalie you want to crash the net on. His agent says he has more of a power forward type build, I guess so.

It's hard to hype up the NHL draft when most of the kids won't be playing for a while.

Here's a thought. Sign Nisky and then shop Brodin to Peg for either Kane or Buff. Package a pick and Brodziak.

Hmm that's an interesting proposition but I'm not sure I'm willing to give up Brodin. I guess it would depend where Folin or Oloffson high point then we would have some flexibility.

Brodin>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Buff, we better be getting players/picks back in that one.

Nisky will get 5milX5yrs, too rich for us. I hope we don't go for Vanek, unless it's a short, short deal. He's 30, we're young, 3yrs max with enough room to retain out young'ns. Otherwise, pass.

If we can get Nisky for $5m per for 5 years I say take him! It sounds like he'll have offers for 7 yrs though. He can play either side, captain the powerplay and score some goals.. oh ya and he was +33 last year..

Yeo is meeting with Vanek today to go over line up possibilities and what not so maybe he'll be able to convince him not to take those 6 yr $7m contracts and some here lol. I'll be surprised if they can reach a deal but what do I know?

And ok, then Brodin for Kane.

Other interesting posibillities are Iginla and Thornton?

Vanek or Ignila is my guess.

Reading Russo, it it sounds like Iggy is a long shot, mostly because he wants to resign in Boston and Boston wants to resign him. I guess Boston just needs to clear a bit of room.

Would be nice to have a guy like Iginla here.

Wanting to sign someone and needing to clear cap space can be difficult. What I think may hurt the wilds chance a iginla is he may hold off to see what Boston can do.

      What an odd day today. Started out calm and picked up some dinky island lake type  walleyes in front of Barkers Island.     Every single walleye was the same size. All below that 15 inch mark.  Everything came right off the back of the boat with crawler harness and a bottom bouncer.   I don’t really use my planer boards on the river or the bay anymore unless I’m fishing with three people or more and want to spread out rods.  Once your tackle gets more than 10 inches below the water it disappears from sight  and I find planer boards more of a hassle than any other method I fish with   Then the wind really picked up and for some strange reason that seem to shut down the bite.  And I don’t mean shut down, I mean completely shut off. I’m going to head up near the Oliver bridge and Spirit Lake tomorrow and I will post my results here.

      Sorry - Not close to it right now.  Everything is factory default at this point except some color selection, depth highlights, low battery alarm and SI distance to 70 ft.  I was wondering if I should change the transducer setting or kHz setting but that does not seem right.
    • rundrave
      can you provide some screen shots or more info of your menu options and how you have everything set up at the time you took that pic?

      Fished Huntington lake on Memorial weekend.  Within the first 20 minutes my buddy pulled in a monster largemouth, but pretty slow the rest of the day.  Picked up a few smaller bass.  Saw a Northern just chilling by the surface, looked to be around the 30" mark but couldn't get him to bite.     Didn't get a chance to fish the other lakes in the area.  Beautiful lakes to be on, though.  Water clarity is unreal, we were watching the loons chasing fish underwater.

      LoonASea - Thanks, I have been looking at the tutorials but I can't figure this out.  I also spent 1.5 hours on hold yesterday with HB without ever getting through.   I did speak with HB tech support awhile ago and their advice was to go back to default setting which it did.
    • MNredneck
      I am going to cuyuna in a coule weeks and I am planning do do a little bit of fishing but am not much of a trout fisherman. Do the northerns and bass in the mine lakes have any size to them?
    • LoonASea
      Lots of good tutorals  on YouTube ,,, Or call Humminbird tech support

      To the other Helix users.  I have a Helix 7 Chirp SI GPS G2 that I am having down imaging issues with.  I am sure it is a user error.  I have a lot of clutter on the screen.  Basically a horizontal line of clutter at every foot and the detail level is terrible.  I understand it is not a Mega unit but this lack of detail and clutter is not helpful at all.  I am on the newest software (2.000) and was having the same problem before updating the software.  I can switch to a regular sonar view and see fish and switch back to DI and do not see anything.  The only way to get that horizontal clutter to disappear is to take the sensitivity down to 1 or 2 and then I can't see anything anyway.  It is not networked, nothing else in use and transducer is off the back of the boat.   Do I need to make some other adjustment or selections besides sensitivity, contrast, etc.?  I have tried just about everything but am not having a great deal of luck and have gone back to default setting.  Pics attached from last weekend from a very clear lake with about 6 feet of clear visibility.   Thank you for the help!
