Dubnyk is pretty stellar.  Defensive player has been very good.  Holy cow, we can actually put the puck in the net.

 

I hold my optimism close, history as a minnesota fan can be painful.

 

That being said, I am enjoying the season thus far

 zucker- 2nd in goals, real threat to score every time he's on the ice. 

stall-#1 center we've needed badly for years is playing out of his mind. Leads team in goals and game winning goals. Don't think anyone would have guessed he'd be playing this well. (And for cheap) 

Koivu-old #1 center is playing in a spot he should be in and its helping tremendously. He's a beast on face offs, playing good defense and it seems to be helping him insert jauques Lemaire voice here "score some goals" 

Bruce-crossing the fingers he doesn't take us to any game 7's but the way the team looks this year compared to last I think the players are listening/respect him more so than yeo and it's showing. (Not losing back to backs, coming back from behind , scoring goals when needed and playing really good d)

oh yea and duuuuuub, although he's kinda fallen off the last few games I really like our chances with him in net. He's good enough to steal a couple and that helps out with hopefully a nice long playoff run. (Hopefully) 

Go Wild!

Wow, thank you for your insight.

 

Do you 'have a point of view' to share?

I heard it said that the Wild are in the midst of their midseason slump.  The difference this year is that are still winning during the slump.

Not sure if this is a sarcastic question to my long rambling but unfortunately I haven't been able to watch many games this year due to not having tv. I listen to almost every game via the fan. As a hockey rube all my existence I just like what this team is compromised of vs old teams. So far it feels similar to 03' where we didn't have that one go to guy (maybe gaborik) but rather 3-4 good lines that knew what there job was. Good coaching, the defense was solid and goaltending although we had two guys back then was a strength. With that being said if dubnyk gets hurt watch out because keumper isn't bringing us anywhere.

 

And while I'm commenting, do I think if the wild will win it all this year?  If they can get past the Blackhawks then anything can happen. Obviously a lot of things have to go right and it's not even February but I like what's happening so far this year.

They certainly have a chance.  Too many years of being a Viking fan have left me conditioned not to be too optimistic.

I'm with "Hardcore" on this one. . . if DUUUUUUUUUUBS goes down, so do the Wild. It's early but we have never looked this good for such a long period of time. Avoid the Hawks in the first round and I like our chances if the team is healthy. . . .

 

And I'm also with BringAnExtension on his last point. . . . Wide left is all I need to say. . . .

@hardcore365, No, not sarcastic at all. The second sentence was meant for anyone viewing the post. It does look like it could be sarcastic tho.... LOL

 

Any predictions for the next game?

I figured it wasn't, but was just reading it thinking it might be. Dang computers need a tone feature of some sort... It's 3-1 now at the end of the second. I think they will close with two more in the third, one empty net, win 5-2. 

Go wild!

5-1 I'd say that was a good call. Now into the All-star break with the best record they have ever had. Man this is fun.

Well so far so good! 4-2 Wild going into the second intermission. Goals by Zucker, Parise, and two by something called a Graovac. Edmonton went into the break playing pretty good hockey so this would be a nice start to the Canada trip if they can get the first one. Go Wild!

Nice game last night.  Both teams were buzzing the first 2 periods.

Our goalie was once again better, great game by Keumper.

This team just keeps rolling, i am not used to this kind of success.  I sure hope this can continue into June.

      I got nuthin’ 😉   I think @Hoey has my favorite motor pic. 😁

      That’s a dandy BobT.  Good birthday gift for your BIL!   I agree with @DonkeyHodey, it’s all in the girth when they get over 20-21 inches.  My heaviest weighed on a scale went 7.5 lbs and was 22 inches.  It was the thickest smallie I’ve ever seen live.  I couldn’t believe the weight so I weighed it twice.   Plus camera angles just can’t always do a fish justice.  Me holding my fish made it look like a heavy 5.  It looked more for real when my brother held it.   Laying in the net on 22.5 inch bump board.   That one took my breath away; made me shake for a while.   Those toads will do that; congrats again!

      29 1/2 Incher.  Biggest of the year.

      If you want to have fun, get over the Walleye obsession.   Bass and pike are also around and also fun to catch.  
    • alfisher

      I would come but I don't want to hog all the prizes. But honestly I won't be around this weekend but heading up either Monday or Tuesday. Hope they have a great turnout as it is for a really good group!!

      Beautiful fish, Bob!   FWIW, I like the following (printed from a study from Michigan DNR) length/weight chart... https://www.michigan.gov/documents/dnr/SMII_Assembled_Doc_2017_final_552610_7.pdf   It's pages and pages of scientific mumbo-jumbo:  BUT, if you can click to Chapter 17, pages 5-9, you'll find an awesome length/weight chart that is what I use to guage my fish (as this includes numerous sport but also non-game fish (burbot, redhorse, etc...), which can be hard to find...  )   (BTW, I like the fact the Michigan bass are probably more reflective of what I'll catch in Minnesota than a Texas bass growth/length/weight chart...)   By their measurements, a 24 inch smallie should be north of 7# but probably not 8 unless it was a big ol' fatty...  But don't fret; your fish is a trophy regardless! ('Course I'm pretty sure the fish I caught, unwitnessed and undocumented was bigger...😁)

      Public can meet local wildlife staff and learn about upcoming hunting season changes Local wildlife managers across the state are again inviting the public to come to open house meetings to ask their deer-related questions and offer thoughts on deer issues.  The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is dedicating time from mid-August to early September to discuss deer-related topics including upcoming hunting regulation changes that will be released in early August. Specific time and location details are available on the deer plan webpage at mndnr.gov/deerplan. These local, open house meetings are a way to encourage conversations about deer and deer management, enhance local relationships and foster two-way communication between the DNR and the public. The DNR began the meetings last year with the release of its statewide deer management plan. This is the second dedicated opportunity for conversation about deer-related topics this year; the first meetings were held in March and April. “After the productive discussions we had in spring, we’re really looking forward to the additional conversation at these open houses,” said Barbara Keller, the DNR’s big game program leader. “These events are great opportunities for people to learn more about specific regulations changes this year and get their questions answered as we approach hunting season. They also provide an opportunity for us to receive public input that will help us plan for the coming year.” In addition to discussing general concerns about deer, individuals can ask DNR staff about last year’s harvest data, provide topics that the DNR’s deer advisory committee should be aware of, and discuss upcoming hunting season changes. Regulations for the 2019 season will be released in early August and reflect disease management needs, as well as feedback that was gathered from surveys and open house meetings in the spring. The open houses do not include formal presentations; people can arrive any time during the scheduled meeting times. The DNR encourages people who can’t attend a scheduled meeting, but who have questions about deer management, to contact a local wildlife manager. A list of area wildlife offices is available online at mndnr.gov/areas/wildlife. More about the Minnesota deer management plan The DNR released the Minnesota White-Tailed Deer Management Plan in July 2018, setting new goals and priorities, increasing formal opportunities for people to influence deer decisions, and aiming for a disease-free deer population. The plan was a result of two years of planning that involved statewide meetings and hundreds of in-depth conversations with the public and interest groups. The full plan is available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/deerplan. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I will be headed up to vermillion later this week to hunt some monsters with some friends. Generally we dont make it up until late August, any tips on where the fish tend to be hanging out these days? Have they started moving shallow or they still lounging in the bays, and over bottom transitions? We will be staying on the east end and looking for a good starting point as time will be limited to 3 days.
