Wild Offseason

Recommended Posts

Kuemper seems injury prone to me and he is unproven but the fact is we need him because our goaltending is a huge question mark. As soon as Backstron or Harding pull a muscle in warm ups and are our 2-3 weeks which always happens... they'll need to have someone to call up. And then if Backstrom just plain is horrible, or if harding's condition flairs up, they'll need him to Start.. Kuemper is pretty good insurance.

I just looked up Matt Hackett's stats and he seems to be strugling. 1-6 last year at Buffalo and 13-17 in the minors.. That surprised me. The wild are the opposite of the Twins in that their players that leave do worse instead of making all star teams..

Also very sad news about Bob Suter.

Prayers sent to the Suter family.

No kidding, 57 is pretty young. I've got a history of heart attacks in my family, so seeing this kind of stuff happen hits home with me.

Sad deal about Bob Suter. Definite ICON in the sport. I didnt realize he was involved with Wild Scouting, that is cool, but a huge loss to the Hockey World. Sad day indeed.

Nino is apparently getting close to signing. His agent commented by training camp he should be signed. Thats a good sign, PUN intended.

Last rumor I saw was Fletcher offers a longer term with maybe some projection on his development. Might be a bigger number than we expect but it could also be a bargain down the road. Get it done already!

Great Info!!! Don't know of anyone who was for keeping him around much less even letting him suit up. grin

Excellent article. Anticipation for this season is growing. The past 3 years we've been markedly better than the previous. This year is no exception to that trend. I think its hats off to Fletcher, he has made some solid moves.

Now Harding hurt his ankle. Kuemper's agent is licking his chops. We need some consistency back there for once.

Sounds like it may have happened during an altercation with a teammate.

And its a significant injury.

Yeah sign Kemp quick #hesourbestbetingoalanyway.

Per Russo: Bryzgalov has agreed to a pro tryout with #mnwild. Will arrive tomorrow. 7-1-3, 2.12 GAA down stretch with Wild last season

Pretty good stats, looks like they are trying to snub Kemps...don't blame them

Doc looked at it late yesterday and it's fractured. We can not even make it to training camp with out a significant injury.

An off ice altercation with another player and he kicked a wall, what is he thinking? After all he has been through now this. Hope Bryz still has his game and Backs is up to the task. If they don't sign Kemps now that would show they really don't like the way that negotiation has gone. What a bummer for all involved.

What a circus. God I hope they don't sign Bryzgalov.. No one else in the NHL is interested in him for a reason!

I wouldn't mind signing Bryz. He was serviceable down the stretch its not like there are a ton of options out there. Kuemper is driving me a bit nuts right now.

Another season of musical goalies, wish they would figure something out with Keumper now, you just know at some point we will need him.

Agree! His experience and desire trumps Kemps IMO, not like Kuemper was stellar last year.

Bryz has made a point that he wants to be here, unlike kemper

Harding suspended. Not paid and money doesn't go against cap since off ice injury.

Big news is kuemper signed, two year deal both one way deals worth 2.5M total.

This harding fiasco could be the best thing to happen to wild.

if healthy I disagree but considering past history I could see how you'd say that. We just need healthy goalies we don't need studs.

Works for me, rest up Harding frown you might lose your job or we might need you for a playoff run. I haven't been paying much attention, who was Harding pizzed at when he kicked the wal?

Ya we quite possible might have the worst goaltending in the league.. 3 injury prone goalies, 1 past his prime Veteran, 1 with MS that gets hurt in warm ups and kicks walls and 1 unproven wild card prospect who I'm not convinced is a future starter. And we probably have the smallest softest Defense too. Only time will tell at this point.

      I've been going up to the areas mentioned for 20 plus years now and ended up buying a cabin in the Bovey area. Looking to hear and share some fishing reports about the surrounding lakes. Never keep much besides some pesty northerns and panfish (which are plentiful) for the occasional lunch. So, I highly respect the area, but if you know the area at all, you will never be able to fish all its lakes in a lifetime... so some well informed fishing reports is always welcome. Again, I emphasize "smaller lakes," because the bigger ones (Jessie, Round, Wabana, etc) all have fishing reports available. Post if you're interested and lets get a good conversation going.

      I would agree with the above answers, that the line of rivets are creating dirty water for you.  I would move to the left as well.  Also, I would guess you may need to lower the transducer some as well.  Get the transducer as low as you can without it making a large roostertail at speed.  If you have a good square or quality straight edge at home, place vertically along bottom of the hull, extending out from the stern.  The top of the straight edge should cover at least the bottom 2/3s of the transducer on the inside (motor side), maybe more if the pitch of the hull is greater.  Transducer should also have a slight downwards angle from transom. 2 more things, make sure the transducer is level(left to right) with a small level. Compare the level of the boat to the level of the transducer.  Boats don't always sit level on a trailer obviously. One thing to remember with side imaging is you beam going out towards the motor is often interfered with the outboard itself.  As you trim up the motor, that side will become clearer.

      That's great. I feel the same about mine.😁
    • Borch
      Well I don't have any inside info on a hot bite but have heard it's still a jig and minnow bite on the edge of flats in 7-12 of water.  If the wind is pounding into a flat I would recommend heading shallow and trolling cranks.  This would be a good option to at least find a spot to slow down and jig the edge once you've cover water and find fish.  I've done well on these flats all summer long if the wind is blowing into them.    Good luck!
    • Squirrelhawke
      this is what mine looks like

      I forgot about the speed issues with these transducers.   I also have a high speed dual frequency transducer mounted.  I run it as my primary and do a split screen when I want to see the side imaging.  Generally the side imaging works best under 6 mph with 2-3 mph being optimal.
    • h8go4s
      I agree you need to move it left to get away from the line of rivets. Then it's a matter of adjusting vertically and tilting it front to back/ up or down. The newer monster size SI ducers can be tough to get positioned right. That's why lots of guys run a second 2d ducer with a splitter cable which automatically switches in when the 2d signal from the SI ducer is lost. My boat is a Alumacraft Classic 165 tiller 50hp, top speed 29 mph. I was able to get position tweaked on it so I have SI, DI and 2d on plane, but it took a lot of adjusting. I resorted to mounting  a camera on a mini tripod and holding it over the transom to video the ducer underway. That helped, but still a PITA. Good luck.
    • Borch
      I would try moving it about 1-3 inches to the left.  It's sitting right behind a row of rivets which would cause turbulence and issues with readings.  You might also be picking up prop turbulence in that location that close to the centerline and on that side.  Seems the side imaging transducers are more sensitive for placement due to the issues your having and blocking the signal one side or the other.   The other side of the outboard could be a better option unless you have something else mounted there to help with prop turbulence. 
    • smurfy
      Awesome!! Looks a bit spoiled maybe!!!👍🤣
    • Hookmaster
      New 2020 1875 Pro Guide. Helix 12 Mega SI graph. Can't read bottom when up on plane. I was going to adjust the transducer and this is what I found. Isn't the first rule in transducer placement to put it where there is "clean", undisturbed water flow?? It is below the bottom of the boat, maybe too far. It's a side imaging transducer so I feel the riggers wanted it close to the center of the boat. Where have others placed a side imaging transducer and have it read bottom when up on plane? I don't think you can move it closer to the center line. If you move it to the left of it's current position, the is the power strake in the front 1/3 of the boat. Any help is appreciated!!
