Wild Offseason

Recommended Posts

Dallas just traded for Spezza, Central is going to tough next year. Total bloodbath in the West.

They gave up a 19, 22 and 23 yr old prospect and a 2nd rd pick for him. And they pick up a $7m cap hit that scored 23 goals and was -26 last year. Makes a Vanek deal sound pretty good to me.

Russo said the wild won't make an offer to Niskanen, sounds like he wants 7 years and we don't want to commit to that.

Finally found a use for Twitter, don't actually have an account but keeping an eye on Russo and McKenzie.

Thats insane what Dallas did. Makes you wonder what some others are going to command. Could get interesting.

If Vanek whats a ginormous deal, just pass and wait it out. Dont go after some second tier guy either. Wait til the trade deadline and figure something out.

Not sure how the "qualifying" offers things work out with RFAs. Does this mean they can also get offers from other teams even though the Wild offered them? I wasnt clear on how that worked.

Was kind of hoping we would hear Vanek news right away, guess we will have to wait and see.

Buffalo was $8m below the cap threshold. Maybe they sign Heatley to fill some space.

MN was the perfect place for him and I'm curious what we offered? Can't blame a 37 year old for taking a 3 year deal with a team like Colorado.

Looks like the west will be scary good again next year.

Bummed about iginla. Would have liked to see him on a one or two year deal.

I'm satisfied with the vanek number and duration. Our power play got an instant boost.

I do like the sound of: (maybe swap koivu with granlund though)

Parise , koivu, coyle

Vanek, granlund, pomminville

Fontaine, Haula, nino

That's a little more than I was hoping for, but if Vanek puts up 25-30 and we can sign our young guys, I'm happy!

Is it october yet?

      Do any of you guys know if Surface Tension still swims around these parts? I think I need my Nils sharpened. I had sent him a message through the HSO forum a while ago and didn't hear back. I'm not sure if HSO and Fishing MN share the same messaging platform, or if I need to try him here instead. Did a quick search and it doesn't look like he's posted in a while, so I'm hoping someone knows his whereabouts.

      Decent panfish lake. They would be my target kicks out some sporadic bites all year. Not much for a walleye lake they get stocked quite often but for some reason never take off. Don't rule out chaseing  Tullibbees. Every winter she gives some up. Piles of deep water out there she can be a tough one. I personally prefer Upper  easier to break down compared to Middle good luck!

      Heading up to Avon to fish Middle Spunk lake this weekend. Looking for any advice or insights for fishing this lake and what to target.

      All set for our annual fishing trip to Crane and Sand Point Lake. I have been going since mid 1980's and the new crew for the past 11 years. We will be there May 29 and staying at a campsite in Sand Point. We plan to venture up a bit perhaps to Wolf Island or Namakan. We fish almost exclusively for pike...all bass and eyes go back to swim again. Any spots to share for pike. We may even change it up a bit and fish crappies this year.  thanks ...good luck all you ice warriors. mark

      its a fun trip. i'd suggest going with a guide the first trip. I've gone out with the one who's last name starts with an H. He was pretty darn awesome.Then you can replicate the tactics. I've gone over there 3 times. Caught fish every time. It's AMAZING that in a large metropolitan area like that there are virtually no fishermen on the ice when it's there.
