  1. Or he suffers no symptoms and is Asymptomatic. 23 members of the Clemson football tested positive--most showed no symptoms(once again, Asymptomatic) and a few had mild symptoms--none of the 23 were hospitalized.
  2. I wouldn't compare anybody to Kuemper--not sure maturity had anything to do with his success. Until having a career year last year, Kuemper's first 3 years in the league were among his best statistically, the Wild actually did a good job of working him in slowly. There is absolutely no good reason not to try a player with the big club before sending him down if necessary. In Kahkonen's case, maybe he's just another inconsistent or streaky goalie. IMO, you can't necessarily say he wasn't ready.
  3. Yes it will--It's a tough spot for BB. He definitely believes in the vets more than the young guys, although IMO we've seen all Fiala has to offer. And he was pretty clear about the lack of team speed and the type of game they need to play in order to win some games. Big problem is, they don't have the type personnel overall that you need to play that way.
  4. Check out BB's comments after the loss to the Leafs. Very frank and revealing...
  5. He sure could have answered that "do you hope it's Winnipeg" question better. I wonder if his answer is based more on his feelings for the Winnipeg area or his teammates.
  6. Probably just signed a blank check--he is a max cap owner, ya know...
  7. I'll say it honestly. Ek will at best be a 3rd line center--and he isn't there yet. Rask is ahead of Ek not just because the Wild have invested a lot of $$ in him--he's a better player than Ek. Greenway has shown more improvement in one year than Ek has shown in 2 plus change. (I know, he's not a center-- yet...)
  8. 3 reasons for the Zuccarello signing: 1. Shows that they did something to try to improve the club--keeps the fans in the seats. 2. It does--at least short term--improve the team or at least helps keep them at a competitive level--keeps the fans in the seats. 3. Fenton's respectability. I see this as mainly a business move with the goal being keeping the seats full. If it happens to actually improve the Wild and makes them a better team, great. If not, reasons 1 and 2 achieve the main goal.
  9. As long as CL is the owner, all we can really hope for are tweaks, as he looks at his team as a business first and foremost. Keeping the seats full is the key, and all that's ever been necessary to do that since he's been owner are tweaks here and there to keep the team competitive. That may/will be? changing soon but IMO hasn't yet. Probably won't until RS/ZP can't play anymore. As long as he is giving the appearance (max cap team, ie) his goal for the Wild from a competitive standpoint is to win the Cup--and he may actually believe that's what he is doing--the fans will keep fillin
  10. Couple of them are decent, but IMO none of them are exceptional. The ones that have proven themselves at some point in time as exceptional we know about and are all taken. It seems to be a very small group of individuals qualified for the position and most have been GM's previously. Maybe there is a relatively unknown candidate(s) out there for whom this would be his first GM job, but I really have a hard time trusting CL to find him. I'm very concerned for the Wild right now as they are at a crossroads, this is probably the most important decision this franchise has ever had to ma
