There is not a lot of NHL talk on here, but I see he got 100 points for the season already last night.

Is this the second coming of the Great Gretzky? Personally I don't think he will keep up the pace to break all of Gretzky's records, but he will for records at the beginning of a career or records by a certain age.

Your thoughts please.

He is real good but he's no 99.

I would assume the Great ones stats are way better comparing stats year by year and I can guarantee Crosby will not have 92 goals and 120 assist in his 3rd season in the NHL.

Pittsburg is improving and has some of the best young talent in the league. Crosby already plays more physical then the Great one ever did. He will be fun to watch for a long time I hope.

There is potential for him to scratch the itch of a few of those records but I don't know if the physical play of what the game is now will allow him to do what Gretzky was able to do. Mario Lemieux had the last legitimate chance to shatter every Gretzky record out there until health problems got the best of him.

Definitely a different game now and much tougher to score.

Crosby may become the best player of all time but I don't see him breaking too many if any of Grezty records.

Crosby is amazing and has a chance to break some records but noway is he going to get 200+ points in a season...I think he may play longer than Gretzky did and they may attribute to record chances....But the players are inches and pounds larger than what they were in the 80s.

not only are the players bigger and faster now, the goaltending is also at a much higher level. if you look at some old gretzky footage you will see what I mean. Crosby is the modern day gretzky.

No doubt about it. Fun player to watch.

I sure do miss Lemieux though.

      Coming up Thursday evening staying at Adrian's for the weekend.  We plan on fishing out in the gap or maybe the river some.  Anybody fishing out there this weekend?  Depths? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks 
    • going4it
      Any results from the Thursday Friday hunt?

      Popped down for half hour to check a spot this morning and only one showed up for a pic. Water is up 2 feet from 2 weeks ago. Hope to try a spot north of town tuesday.

      Ok, so all the biologists, scientists, and compiled data is wrong and you're right.  Lets rape and pillage the lake until there's absolutely nothing left.  Great idea tfin.  In fact, maybe when the walleyes are all gone we should harvest all the muskies, smallmouth bass, and pike in the lake too.  And then blame the DNR for it.  Go fly a kite

      I was out 2 weeks ago from today and it was still pretty good.  Water temp was 54.  I don't plan to go again now because my boat is winterized.  My Father said it has been miserable the past week because the water got so cold so quick.  It looks decent this week for weather but deer season is fast approaching so I have to prepare for that now.

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.
