Manny Fernandez

With Backstrom's play dominating and Harding doing very well as the back up, is it time to part ways with Manny? I think he is making 3.5 million this year. I think we should trade him in the offseason for a draft pick and use the money to sign a big defenseman. We have no big defenseman right now and only one guy on the team checks (Boogie) and he only plays five minutes a night. Just wanted to get some peoples thoughts.

I think it's great to see. Who wouldn't want 3 solid goaltenders on their team? I haven't seen enough to say that we should trade Manny though.

Certainly Backstrom has played well enough to stake his claim in the NHL. He has played well enough to deserve the starts also. Harding has started off really hot here also, but I haven't seen enough to be ready to deal Manny. It's obviously key to have a really capable backup goalie (per the Manny injury/Backstrom situation this year).

IMO Manny is number three. It's a toss up for me between Backstrom and Harding. I will say that I think Harding is the best positional goalie of all of them. Very rarely have I seen him pulled out of the net and out of position. That's why he makes every save look so easy. If he were flopping around like a crappie most of the time (like Manny does) he would'nt have the great goals against average that he currently has!

Right now Manny may be number 3.

You don't make rash judgments or decisions based on small samplings yes they are playing great now but things can change in the nets very quickly I think the goalies success is in direct correlation of how the team is playing overall.

I would say there is a ZERO chance that Manny would be traded.

Manny just signed a long-term deal last year (the reason they traded Roloson). Look for Harding or Backstrom to be the one traded.

I agree, manny is not going ne where. They gave him the deal to keep him there, and let rolly move on to a different team.

The guys that are playing right now are on fire, and there is no reason to take them out of the net.

Nothing against Manny, but I think we need to keep our young guys, they are playing awesome right now and will give us a great chance in the playoffs

I think your right there. The young guys are playing great, but the fact of the matter is, that manny is a great players, and he was gave the new tag for the money.

I would trade Manny and sign Backstrom to a deal. Try to get a good blue liner. Manny is the oldest and is too much of a headcase. When he comes out and says he might not be the go to guy when things aren't going good. What kind of confidence does that portray to your teammates.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.

      Oh ok! Was going to say I found a ice fishing rod  out on pearl lake

      For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!

      Before hitting the water for the first time this spring, boaters should ensure their boats, equipment and safety items are in legal and proper working order, the Department of Natural Resources said. They should also review regulations in the 2018 Minnesota Boating Guide or at the boat and water regulations page.   “With this year’s late ice-out, boaters are especially anxious to get on the water and start enjoying the boating season,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator. “After waiting all winter to get back on the water, no one wants to break down, get a ticket or have a safety emergency.” In addition to making sure boats are equipped with required safety items, boaters should take extra precautions during the cold-water season, when more than 30 percent of Minnesota’s boating fatalities occur. While children younger than 10 years old must wear life jackets while aboard watercraft that are underway (i.e., not tied to a dock or anchored for swimming), boat and water safety officials recommend all boaters wear life jackets anytime they’re on cold water, no matter their age. “Wearing a life jacket is an important part of staying safe when the water is cold during the spring,” Dugan said. “In the event of an unexpected fall or capsizing, having a life jacket on can make all the difference.” Adult boaters who are resistant to wearing a typical life jacket should consider inflatable styles designed to make preventive use more convenient and comfortable. Before the season’s first launch, boaters should verify their motorboats are equipped with the following: U.S. Coast Guard-approved wearable life jackets for each person on board. Type IV throwable flotation device on boats 16 feet or longer. Horn or whistle. Type B U.S. Coast Guard-approved fire extinguisher. Navigation lights in working order. Valid boat registration, with numbers visible. Marine carbon monoxide detector in some boats. Watercraft can be registered in person at any deputy registrar of motor vehicles or at the DNR License Center in St. Paul. Registrations are good for three calendar years. Renewals can be done in person or online on the licenses and vehicle registration page. More details, including boating safety tips and new laws, (among them Sophia’s Law and information on watercraft operator permit requirements) can be found in the boating guide at the boat and water regulations page.
