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

Who do you think are the guys that are getting it done?

 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.

Well I guess they were due for a stinker. . . . officiating not the best but they were lacking the same "jump" as the night before. A little of the "puck luck" went against them as well. Need to come back with a strong showing Saturday!

Passes just didnt stick to stick all night.

 

At least we could afford one of these games.

Back to backs on the road late can be tough to get that extra energy level up for.

Nice bounce back win last night.  Nice to Granlund get his first hat trick.

 

Still think Dubnyk isnt quite right.  He didnt play bad, just seems alittle slow in his reactions lately.  

 

Should we play Keumper (he is good enough to keep us in games) more the second half, or does Dubnyk just need to play through any issues he may have?

(I believe a off Dubnyk is still better than an average Keumper)

      yes you can and they can cover the holes/marks...   I have seen it done..  very interesting...  and there are replicas too...
    • opsirc
      In all the years going to low never fished them,  heang up this weekend and thinking of trying there. Are they any good or should head out far like everyone else?
    • Getanet
      I'm assuming they planned to get those fish mounted, which leads to a question I've wondered about...can you get a speared pike mounted?  I would assume the holes left by the spear would make it pretty tough, but maybe the taxidermists have some tricks up their sleeve.
    • gimruis
      Most lakes with muskies still ban spearing.  I personally think Mille Lacs should go back to the way it was for decades.  Just my opinion.   You are probably right.  If they had caught it trolling in soft water, they probably would have done the same.  I don't know.  I personally think that most people spearing know the difference when they see one, but obviously not all of them do.

      Well, now I want some pancakes!

      I fished Friday and Saturday with two guests from work.  We went to the mud both days.  The bite was tough.  Not as many high flyers compared to two weeks ago.  Fish seemed more finicky, some spooked easily while others were just sniffers.  The guides indicated that the bite had softened over the past week as the fish were consuming larvae from a hatch, fishing deeper resulted in a lot of tulibee, shallower were smaller eyes and sauger.    My cabin neighbor spent a day fishing.  He started off in the mud and headed to shallow water around 230pm, as he heard this was the place to be.  They added one to their bag.     I just spoke to another party that moved their house into 16 feet along a sandy break and did really well yesterday 230 to 6pm.     We had fish dinner on Friday night and surprisingly enough, we scratched out one short of our take home limit.  Size-wise, these fish were in the lower range with larger ones being 17s down to 13s.  We also were able to enjoy some slots.  Here are a couple.       The weather was probably the best we have experienced this season, both road and lake-wise.  I am hoping for 4 more weeks of winter, as I have some trips planned between now and mid-March.

      Another season of big game fishing has came to a end. Its never been easy for me to call it a season as I really have loved  working on the lake. This year because of my car accident I did not get to have that enjoyment.  Yes there 's time where you ask yourself wtf. Have cuss words been used? yes. Fighting mother nature can be so brutal. The only way to have a chance against her is to try and plan ahead, which is easier said then done. The equipment takes a beating. Trying to track down parts for trucks that are pushing 40 years old is always a challenge.  This year our son jonny boy had to step up and take over for me. He got a good taste of the planning it takes to keeps things going forward. He had his moments learning the hard way by trial and err. He did a fantastic job finding fish considering how handcuffed we were as to where we could go. There were numerous comments from new and old customers  how well he took care of them. For me its always been about customer service, repeat business. To know they have carried that on makes me very proud.   I did get to visit a few customers this year but it was very limited as I just did not feel comfortable visiting.  We did recruit Richie to help us to start the season, Jonny  and him sure got along well, which was a blessing.  He had to head home  the end of janurary. Our grand daughter Ashley stepped up as she said "Jonny boy took her under his wing". They sure had fun working and fishing together.  She sure enjoyed visiting our customers. She even learned how to pull a house out of its spot and tow one across the lake.  She also has a passion to fish, spending numerous nights on the lake. It is a treat having her here with our great grand son Bentlee. Bentlee hanging out with his mom and great uncle John on the lake makes him a 7 generation here on the shores of upper red lake.  The final weekend of fishing report was not to bad. Phil and his 2 buddies were in montana, they went home with 12 plus missed plenty of fish.  I spent time in old Minnesota before, during and after wayne and pauls visit. I fished hard the last week Jigging a orange chubby darter. I think I landed  at least 12 fish. If they did not hit the lure they hit  a set line.  Wayne and Paul went home with 6 but should of had more as they also lost and missed fish.  I spent sunday afternoon out there and landed 3 nice fish before packing it in.  Florida had Ed and his wife Pat they did not do that well. Ed said he marked a lot of fish but could not get them to bite. They did go home with a couple.  Dan was in California with his daughter Anna. They just fished for the day. She did get to catch her first walleye before packing it in.  Rick, his brother Mike and young one Joe? fished in Colorado .The first night on a new spot was not good so Ashley and Jonnny moved them Saturday afternoon. I think they had some better action but they pulled out early sunday morning.  North Dakota was a no show so Ashley and Jonny boy got to spend the last weekend on the lake where they also caught and missed some fish.   All the houses are now getting staged to comer to shore.  Jonnny has plans to look for the mother load of  the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. The plan will be sleds and portables. Our crappie get together is still in the planning. I expect a few of the guys to make it up as the snow melts. I would love to get out there and wet a line, just not sure if I can bounce on a sled, time will tell.  I owe such a huge thank you for all the help I received this year. It was truly amazing. I can never thank people enough for there generosity . Again thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I hope to have a few more fishing reports before the ice melts on such a grand lake
