Gophs


8-Ball

Recommended Posts

This is not looking good-2-0 Cheese after 1 period. Gophs look listless- a step behind in effort. I am disappointed. Lucia publicly stated he was "very disappointed" in last nights effort. I had hoped they would come out with some fire in their belly. They did'nt. It is not over yet, but it does not look promising after the first 20. Come on Gophs, get after it!

They ALL looked rattled tonight. Even Kessel had some rushes where he entered the O zone and just drifted off to the side, instead of a shot, or a drop, or a give and go, etc. And it could have been worse.. I think Cheese U had 7 or 8 PP's that they did not convert on! Tonight Peltier took the place of Harrington in the "I don't know where I am" category. He was out of position and his play led to 2 goals by Cheese U. Now they go to the Sioux for 2? Donny best come up with a plan B. The worst thing about tonight was, except for a few decent shifts at the end of the first period, they really were not even competitive tonight. Who is our captain, again? I'm sure Buzz will have some insight into tonights yawner....

So I took my wife to that barn burner last night (Yuck)! and heres my take. Our defense lacks toughness, we let other teams get inside of our Blue line way too easy!! we don't hit anybody and that stinks! Knock a player off the puck instead of trying to play cutsie poke check stuff.... then on Wisconsins second goal... all of our forwards were so far out of the play... back check guys!! I'm sure when you tune into KFAN monday at 9:00 you'll hear comments on both of these things. I thought the Gophers only outplayed Wisconsin for one of the six periods this weekend and that was the third period of game one and thats not going to get it done. Last night was a horrible game. I will give props to Wisconsin, they look like the team to beat in December, we'll see if they can keep it going in March and April.

I hope the Looch is embarassed, cause I sure am.

Out hustled, out skated, out shot, out checked, OUT COACHED.

Where was this great power play??? Where were our leaders??? Usually your leaders step up in games like this, clutch type of players. No backchecking, No D stepping up. I dont think our D can handle these bigger guys. We miss Demarchi!!!!

Thats ok if the Gophers loss, I just got to party with Gino, Potulny and Sertich... then stayed at Ginos house last night.. it was fun but yeah the Gophs looked bad last nights game.

I was down in MPLS for BSU club hockey and played at St. Thomas college (JV team.. swept them) So we have some greenway boys that played with Gino so.. it was great to meet some of them even though they were a little bit ... grin.gif

      Very low, probably 2 feet lower than last year at ice out.

      what do they look like this spring?

      I might have missed a guess, but here are the ones that I noted:   JerkinLips – March 27th, then April 7th Brianf. – March 28th Bobberwatcher – April…. MikeG3Boat – April 10th SkunkedAgain – early April, then April 21st   Definitely a tough year for guesses, as it seemed to be a no-brainer early ice out. Then it got cold and snowed again.

      MN DNR posted April 13 as Ice out date for Vermilion

    • Brianf.
      No, that wasn't me.  I drive a 621 Ranger.

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.
