      Wild's Ownership Are they really "Committed to Winning it All"
      Minnesota Wild
      jammer2 - Posted
      Didn't read throug the whole thread, so forgive me if these points have already been mentioned. As far as attendance goes, they sell out the joint every night......to the tune of 106% of capacity. In that way, they are a lot like the Leafs, guaranteed to sell out, guaranteed fan support locally. However, I have to believe that managment wants to take profit to a new level....that means deep playoff runs. A deep playoff run(s) gets them to the promised land of profit.....and unlocks millions in merchandise sales. I have to believe ownership wants to unlock this door. They have not been wise with their investments, but it would be unfair to call them cheap also. I don't know anything about the Wild owner, so who knows if they really want things to be better for the fans.....but profit awaits....and that if nothing else, should be motivation to get better and win.

      2018 Minnesota Wild Draft Discussion .......
      Minnesota Wild

      To get back on the draft topic, might be interesting to keep track of the players the Wild passed on to draft Johansson. Just kind of compare what they passed on compared to how Johansson turns out.    I wouldn't go into the second round, maybe just projected first rounders that were still available: Dominik Bokk, Joseph Veleno, Adam Ginning, Bode Wilde, Alexander Alexeyev, etc.

      In my opinion, I think it was this. Look at what Lemaire accomplished in his career both on the ice and behind the bench. He didn't half-ass anything. But the Wild ownership was more concerned with the bottom line than what was occurring on the ice. So they were more than happy to put a half-assed roster together to put on the ice just to maximize profits. I think Lemaire did the best he could with the rosters he was given, but none of those teams were going to get close to the Cup. And he was not going to be given a team that might get to the Cup, because that meant the ownership had to spend money. And Naegle absolutely did not want to spend any money.

      MAF was out for part of the season! Thier backup held the fort beautifully which helped the Knights to a great season!  The Knights will not win a Cup if Fleury is the starting netminder. They might win it if he is the backup!

      Power Play Unit 1 and 2
      Philadelphia Flyers

      It would have to be pretty valuable to risk ripping the locker room apart. Simmonds is one of the few players in the league who I believe is actually more valuable to the team than his production. If the Flyers are in playoff position and they trade Simmonds, especially if it's just for futures, there's a serious chance the players revolt. Different teams and all, but remember how the Blues players reacted to Statsny getting traded at the deadline - they felt betrayed and said as much to the media. And they were out of a playoff spot at the time. Simmonds would be much worse.   It's easy for us to look at things and say it makes sense to move him from a purely value standpoint, because it absolutely does. But the Flyers also want to win something in the playoffs, even if it's just a round this coming year. I have serious doubts that they risk that over a couple of picks/prospects when it comes to Simmonds this year. I think there's still a chance he's moved in the offseason, but if he's on the opening night roster I'd be extremely surprised if he's not here for the duration.

      Ryan Suter Rehab Update...
      Minnesota Wild
      IllaZilla - Posted
      I think a lot of these observations we are making here just goes to show that the Wild aren't built for the Playoffs. Every team knows you just have to be a little physical with them and they turtle.   Also, is it me, or are the Wild constantly running into the "hot goaltender" more than any other team in the Playoffs? Or is it that their anemic offense makes any goaltender they run into "the hot goaltender"?
