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!

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.

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.

      Any spots around Farmington to set up nice crayfish spots? Or any spots around here? 
    • Roseypike19
      Sounds great Squirt.  Good to hear you have plugs that will hit those depths, but more than likely you'll only need something in the 10-20' range...maybe even higher in the water column.  Hope you get to find out!     We also eat a few pike.  My personal slot ends at about 25-26" - everything bigger goes back - but the new NE MN limits allow harvest up to 30".  Northern nuggets are tasty, and I've never had anyone who could tell me the difference when presented side by side with walleye.  
    • Squirt
      RoseyPike 19 and all, Thank you for the tips. Very good instructions and specifics that I can see on the map. I will give these a try. For big pike I am looking for 40 inch plus.... I also like fishing the shallows as you say for the 20 - 30 as I like to eat pike. I think the fillets are the best minnesota offers. For the deep fish I have the tackle and divers to get down 30 - 40 so I will try that. You also gave me specifics around where I am staying, so I will report back on how I do.   Thanks all!

      Launched out of Copas today. Got beat up by the wind pretty good. Caught an 18.5 inch largemouth, and a 17 inch walleye. Then it was a looooooong time in between fish. My son found a brief bit of success when he started jigging a small paddle tail and caught his very first sheephead. Then I had him jig one of those gulp minnow things, and he caught a 15 inch smallie. But that’s where it all ended. After we loaded everything up I threw him in the river 😂

      I'm in a group of 5 that heads to Vermilion once a year.  We'll be on the West end starting 6/13.  We're open to traveling but will be looking for walleye primarily.  I'll keep an eye on the message board, but any input for success would be appreciated.  In the past, we've had luck with crawlers and leeches, but not much with minnows.  We've had the most luck with lindy rigs and slip bobbers.  We'd like to get ahold of some crappies too if anyone has any pointers.  We're used to Mississippi River fishing so we're kind of at a disadvantage when it comes to Vermilion.  Thank you in advance!

      well...........i'll be up for round #2 wed morning!!!!!!!! look out fish. last time was mainly work. did get a bit of fishing in but i was limited.
    • Roseypike19
      Hi Squirt,    The previous tips are all good regarding pike on Vermilion.  Find some shallow reeds/weeds and you will find some nice sized pike (Average = 20-30" with a bigger fish at times).    What is your definition of a "big" pike? The shallow program is fun and that's how I do most of my pike fishing, but overall that is not how you will find the biggest pike on Vermilion.  I'm talking East Vermilion as that's the basin I fish.  By now many of the biggest pike are suspended and feeding on ciscoes in deep water.  They will make occasional forays into the shallows to follow food (think windy days), but they spend much of their time suspended over the depths.     Several really good areas very near you have this potential: 1. The narrows between Moccasin Point and Pine Island.  You can't miss this area on a map.  There is BIG pike potential here.  2. The deep water break on the east side of Isle of Pines.  I have literally seen giant pike chasing ciscoes out of the water here (also a fantastic muskie spot).     Those two areas are a literal stones throw from your place.     How do you fish the deep water?  IDK!  Like I said, I'm a shallow pike program guy.  The few times I've done the deep suspended thing we found the bait and big hooks on sonar and then jigged 1 oz hair jigs and/or 1 oz lead heads with a white fluke.  It worked, but it was technical and tough.  If I ever do it again (maybe later this summer), I'll troll big plugs at the depth just above the fish.     Last week we had a lot of fun catching many nice pike in the shallow weeds, but our two biggest fish (including a 40"er), came on a very windy, cloudy day while fishing shallow rocky points adjacent to deep water.   Coincidence?  I think not.  So definitely take advantage of those windy, cloudy days if you expect to find a giant.  In my experience, those conditions provide your best shot a true trophy pike from shallow water.  (Of course there are some exceptions and any cast on Vermilion could land a big pike!)   Otherwise, ply the suspended depths and report back what you find.    Good luck.

      Hope I'm not too late on this report.  We were up last week (23rd-30th), and overall we had fantastic smallie fishing.  We had to adjust a bit as they were definitely more in spawn mode than most Memorial day weeks, but that just meant moving from points and secondary points towards the spawning bays and banks.  I really enjoy pre-spawn smallie fishing because they are often schooled up on the points leading into spawning areas, they are fat as heck, and they are very active - and while we had some action in this regard - we had more overall action on the banks and in the bays and saw a lot of spawned out females compared to previous years.  So I'd say about a 1/3 of our fish were pre-spawn, a 1/3 were spawn (males on beds), and a 1/3 were post spawn.  T'was all fun.     The whole month of June = awesome shallow smallie fishing, so whoever is up, good luck!
