  1. The MN wild had a very high quality analytics and statistics department until Fenton "tried to plug his leaks." I'm sure they could have queued up the video and data for him. Unfortunately it wouldn't have mattered as Fenton didn't care about analytics as much as his "gut feeling for a hockey trade" so they would have gone underutilized. Now the wild, under new soon to be announced leadership, could certainly use those talented individuals back...
  2. If I remember right Latendresse got wrecked by a heaping bowl of poutine...
  3. The wild should let a different team over pay for another old free agent. They should continue their rebuild from within and prep for the expansion draft and find the pieces to build around kaprizov. They should get younger and faster and stick to that plan. Let koivu move on as soon as possible. If the next season goes well leave the roster be. If it turns south trade stall and Parise and hopefully suter will want to waive his nmc to go as well. Then look at trading dubnyk, brodin, spurgeon, and Zucker. Get lots of picks and prospects and do a complete rebuild around players that are hungry to play and not looking to repeat the status quo.
  4. Krebs just got his Achilles cut and has to have surgery and has no time line yet on the recovery poor guy.
  5. Trading Zucker to move up two spots in the draft is beyond stupid so that pretty much sounds like a move the GM would make.
  6. “He is well known, he’s well recognized. He’s still one of ‘our guys.’ He still has it. Whatever the ‘it’ is in this market, he has it. He’s going to be great for us.” ~ Wild Owner Craig Leipold on the hiring of Mike Modano. This quote is a dead giveaway that the owner is an absolute dolt. "Whatever the it is in this market" CL doesn't even know his team's market, how to spot talent, much less how close the wild were to winning a cup. Then he changed plans abruptly and started underselling the wild players in desperate trades for nobodies. CL has no business owning a hockey team at all.
  7. Unfortunately CL wanted a yes man who was in agreement that the wild were just a few minor adjustments away from winning the cup. Fenton told CL exactly what he wanted to hear which was that CL was the smartest person in the room (moronically) and that his playoff beard was coming in nicely (looks more like a goats nutsack). Fenton is consistently getting fleeced trade by trade by more qualified GM's and judging from last year's first round pick CL shouldn't trust Fenton to pick his own nose.
  8. The new GM is an absolute asshat. [Hidden Content] 1. Here’s my sense of what’s going on with Phil Kessel: he vetoed a trade to Minnesota and the story is out because both teams are unhappy. He cannot be traded to the Wild without specific approval, and, if you know Kessel, you know he will stand up for his rights no matter what anyone else thinks. The fact it got out may make it even harder to complete, because he’ll push back against pressure. I’d heard things went badly last season between him and the organization, and this confirms it. He knows he will be traded because there’s no benefit to staying, but he’s going to make sure it is on his terms if the Penguins want to send him anywhere other than his eight-team list. My guess is Arizona would be high on his choice of destinations, but I don’t see an easy fit. The Penguins want scoring in return and the Coyotes finished 28th in goals-for. Memorial Day weekend comes at a perfect time for everyone to take a deep breath, drink some strawberry daiquiris, then search for a solution. 2. You know who else can’t be thrilled? Jason Zucker. That’s twice (Calgary at the deadline) he’s been sent somewhere, only to have it aborted. Someone is going to get a very motivated player. He must want to strangle someone
  9. Leipold better not be cheap and should make a sizable gift as soon as possible! These guys could help make up for the severe lack of scoring, talent, and depth currently on the wild and may help save the team's non-rebuild rebuild.
  10. Kaprizov just won the cup there now is the time to bring him and his teammate to the state of hockey. The GM better not sit on his hands for too long or those guys will become strangers.
  11. I'm not sure why they waited so long after the season to send them down to Iowa.
  12. Suter may be thinking about a Stanley Cup, but unfortunately his level of effort doesn't even require a nut cup.
  13. Dingle say hi to berry. According to your logic the "celebrations only happen after the game" by replacing a hand shake and a good game. Do the Canes still have these celebrations after the game if they lose? This is a lame gimmick that would never pass in a respectable hockey market. I lived in NC in 2008, went to several games at rock bottom prices, and they still always had an empty arena. I'm glad to see that they finally have more fans showing up at their games. But let's be honest the fans wouldn't be showing up if the Canes weren't winning games...it isn't the celebrations bringing them closer.
  14. They are grown men, should have some class, and they should act like they have scored a goal or won a game before. The movie Baseketball is becoming more accurate. It is a slippery slope and people with similar mindsets will allow the ushering in of this lame celebration garbage by saying it is fun.
