  1. Hamilton Harbour Walleye

    If the MNR keeps stocking new fish to replace the ones that people eat, that may help remove some of the contaminants from the bay...

    Oops, I guess I should have realized that DAL in his stats didn't stand for Vegas.

    Possibly, but judging from the stats, Methot hasn't made much a contribution to Vegas's success this year. It doesn't look like it would take much to be an improvement over Methot this year. I guess we will see how L.A. does with him. They are currently one spot out of the playoffs. https://www.nhl.com/player/marc-methot-8470760
  4. I wonder how long it will be before Brian rigs up something similar for his auger

    Not exactly done. He's still your third highest paid defenseman I wonder if he regrets not waiving his no trade clause last summer; he could be playing for Vegas right now. Oh well, I guess L.A. is better than Ottawa.

    Some of the comments are hilarious. Re: Mark [email protected] Good return on the Dion Phaneuf deal for Ottawa. Gaborik is a real playoff performer. Could get them over the hump this season.

    So, somebody is claiming that there is a zero percent chance that Ottawa will do poorly two years in a row... I wonder who that was? We will see how that pans out. I can see Ottawa using a late season surge to end up getting the tenth pick overall and then giving up the first overall pick in 2019.
  8. Ice fishing help

    You're allowed two lines each. So bring a minimum of two rods/tip ups, etc. I like to have some extra rigs so that I still have two lines in the water while I am tying another rig. You may want to consider an auger to run some tip ups out side the hut; especially if it's a nice day. Some rod holders are good too. I was up at Innisfil earlier this year. We were having good luck with perch on a similar setup to the rig from huzzsaba's video. Sunset was the best time. Small minnows were working best.

    But his actions are putting other players' loosing their livelihoods put them at a risk suffering pain for life... I agree that they should be the ones handling with large fines and progressively longer suspensions. But if they don't handle it then I can understand players wanting to take matters into their own hands.
  10. Woot Woot did some boat maintenance

    My understanding is that you want them to be soft and they tend to get harder with age.

    Wasn't it you that was telling us how big of an upgrade Duchene was over Turris when the trade was announced? You may have even mentioned something about making a run for the cup... I guess the Leaf fans were right about it being a bad trade, and about Ottawa's play-off run being a fluke, and about Karlsson not being that great, etc. I got a chuckle out this:

    Wow, overtime didn't last long. Way to go Nylander.
  14. Anybody seen one of these on the ice?

    I looks like it could cut holes in the ice for you too.
  15. musky or pike?pic included

    Dark markings on a light background indicate muskie. A pike would have light markings on a dark background. Do you still get the bottle if it's a tiger muskie?
