  1. It might be the most underdog type team the Wild has been in years. Sometimes that is not a bad thing.
  2. Yes it is! From what I have read the son - father duo is working very well, making Rossi a lot stronger when any adversities arise. Michael will keep on raising Marco through difficulties.
  3. According to this study made by the University Hospital of Copenhagen face masks don't really protect the wearer himself: [Hidden Content] They didn't study if wearing face masks protect others, though. I'm pinning my hopes on getting vaccines working as early as possible. But yeah, Menell has really showed the Wild they should give him a good opportunity to make the team. It has been a dominating effect by him, on a team that is a good KHL team but not the absolute elite of that league. The Finnish center prospect Lundell has also played really well, but I'm hoping Rossi was still the right choice.
  4. A horrifying thought, but it does seem possible. The teams need the fans to help pay the bills and the fans cannot come until the pandemic is over.
  5. Yeah, I know. If I was Kahkonen, I would probably be out of mind with frustration. But he seems fine with it. Developing goalies is weird. We don't want a Kuemper situation. As in having a potential home run goalie, who suddenly turns out to be really shaky any time he gives up a goal. Shelter the goalie to let him grow, and then stop sheltering him to let him grow even bigger - but how does one know when it's the right time?
  6. We might need to pay quite a bit of the salaries of the troublesome triad to get rid of them, given the corona virus changed economy situation of the teams. We can only hope that Mr. Leipold has the means, and sees value in paying our way out of the dead end. They sold Gretzky, as they say. Maybe the impossible will happen here too.
  7. Finnish Broadcasting Company YLE interviewed Kahkonen: [Hidden Content] It's in Finnish, unfortunately. My impression was that KK accepts the situation of needing to fight for the place in the sun, and can cope with the frustration of not getting the spot yet. My guess from the interview would be that frustration would only start to mount by next fall, if he had played well, and would still not be in the big league. He has not played for months now and that is a factor when he gets back in action, but feels that he's ready for the fast ride when it starts.
  8. Back on the topic here: Greenway has been disappointing, but apparently Guerin has told him that in the exit interview. Now it remains to be seen, if Greenway can stop being nice on ice, and find that inner demon from the depths of himself and start playing the way he needs to play, and has the frame to be successful with.
  9. If there ever was a chance for Anas to make it on the NHL, he wasted it playing in Minnesota's organisation. But yeah, Iowa definitely needs to cleared of older players.
  10. I like him always driving to the low slot. That's where the goals are scored from, especially in the NHL, and especially the playoffs.
  11. What is the one objective thing an AHL player can do to show he deserves a chance in the NHL? Anas did that. He got points. That is a fact. He looks too small to play in the NHL, or he's not going to fit in Minnesota Wild, etc are opinions. Why bother play in Iowa if no matter what you do you won't get one game in four years. Anas's treatment reeks of country club mentality. "No matter what you do, you won't get a chance, because you don't look like you belong to the country club." I hope our organisation starts respecting achievement.
  12. I just listened to Russo's Straight from the source -podcast, where Scott Wheeler describes Rossi and his family. Sports reporter Wheeler lived with the family for some days before the Covid-19 time, in order to write a story about junior hockey lifestyle, so he has quite a view on Rossi's personality. Here's the link: [Hidden Content] You can listen to it on Spotify, as well. On a nutshell, Rossi sounds extremely conscientious and driven, maybe even to a point that one thinks if he will be able to cope with adversity. He has a great relationship with his father though, and the father sounds like a person who can probably make his son see the need to be able to crack a joke or two in a tough spot. Sounds promising.
  13. Thanks. That makes sense.
