  1. I watched the Anaheim feed last night and one of the commentators made the interesting observation of 'the Wild are on a 7-game road trip but have returned home twice. It's not really a 7 game road trip if you have time to return home twice.' IMO, they're still playing on the road so I don't really follow his logic there
  2. Who would have thought that putting your 3 best forwards on a line together would result in good offense
  3. Just out of curiosity... We only play the Blues a handful of times each year, but does anyone notice any similarities in their style of play compared to when Yeo coached the Wild? (Terrible PK, PP, etc.)
  4. Start to finish the Wild played a great game. That being said, the Blues are at the bottom of the Central for a reason. How long until the Blues fire Yeo?
  5. Simply because of Yeo, I love it when the Wild stomp on the Blues.
  6. Watching St. Louis stand around and play slow makes me wonder if that's what most other fans see when they watch their team play the Wild
  7. Watching the St. Louis feed, one of the commentators said 'confidence has been an issue for the Blues and the Wild tonight just punched them in the groin'
  8. Does anyone else see a little black thing sitting in the back of the St. Louis net? It looks like Jake Allen was just poking at it.
  9. Only 1 shot on that PP but that's the best PP I've seen from the Wild in a while.
  10. Regulation losses by Nashville, Winnipeg, and the Blackhawks sure feels good. Looking at the standings, #1-5 in the Central division currently have more points than the #1 team in the Pacific (San Jose). The Central looks like it will be a tight race yet again.
  11. I agree that you don't want to hear Pateryn's name called as 3rd pairing defenseman. The Wild are only about 10 games into the season so there is still time to get better and impress. If you want to compare him to Prosser, then I would argue that Prosser would cost 1/3 to 1/2 of what Pateryn ($2+ mil) does.
  12. I am yet to be impressed by anything that Pateryn does. He just looks big and slow to me.
  13. I agree with both of these points. Greenway looks bigger and stronger than most of the players on the ice. Occasionally he makes some really nice plays (usually from hustling) but other times he leaves you scratching your head wondering 'what was he thinking?'. Sending him back down to the AHL for a little more seasoning would probably benefit him. Nino looks healthy to me, but he looks confused and like he lacks confidence. In the past he has shown the skill and willingness to shoot the puck and make plays but now that looks like it is completely gone from his game.
  14. Good game to watch. The Wild got a little sloppy with penalties towards the end of the 3rd period so the game was much closer than the score indicated. Either way, a win is a win so I'll take it. Dubnyk has been playing great and keeping the Wild in games so at this point it looks like the season will go as he goes.
  15. I remember watching some REALLY ticky-tac stuff being called during the Carolina game. What is infuriating to fans, and I imagine the players as well, is that in another game with a different set of referees those penalties do not get called. Are the Wild a 'dirty' team or 8 games into the season have they just had bad refs?
  16. When I see them flip a puck into the offensive with no one chasing they're just asking to lose the game.
  17. I'm not surprised by that it was as low scoring as it was. Arizona as a team has a GAA of about 2 and combine that with neither team being able to score (both in the bottom 10). A win is a win so I'll take it. Unfortunately, the Avs and Jets both got loser points tonight so the Wild didn't really gain much ground.
  18. Only saw the third period. If the refs were calling the game that tight you have to adjust but wow... the refs were calling some ticky-tack stuff.
  19. To play Devil's advocate to the "Fenton has failed" statement. To generate conversation, given he has to work with Koivu, Parise, and Suter's crappy contracts, what could Fenton REALLY have done to improve the team over one summer?
  20. I think 24-40 is pushing it, but I think he can consistently be a 50ish point player. I agree with @CreaseAndAssist. It is hard to get a good feel for what Coyle can do consistently. Occasionally he plays like a really good power forward (fights, drives to the net, etc.) but other times he looks like he is settling for an outside shot. I recall reading about him playing in a playoff series (against St. Louis?) where he played through 2 separated shoulders. This shows me he has the mentality to be a tough player, but we never see it on a consistent basis. That being said, it is 'funny' how things happen but seeing as next year is his contract year I would expect NEXT year to be the year he's fully healthy and puts up a bunch of points. At the end of the regular season I predict he ends up with 20 goals + 30 assists.
  21. I forget if it was TSN or THN but they also predicted the Wild would finish 6th in the Central. They also said if the Wild's window for a championship with this roster is still open it's just a crack.
  22. Dubnyk is not an elite goalie, but he also isn't compensated like an elite goalie. He ranks as the 21st highest paid goalie (cap hit) so I don't think all of the pressure should be placed on him to make this team great.
