  1. I was thinking along those lines as well. Coaches change, players change, roles and TOI change. At least one thing does not change. Suter on the PP and playing all the time. Is he really that good and that constant, always the same, always the best d-man on ice? Never hurt, never playing badly, never in need of lesser TOI or role.
  2. Who knows what happens in the locker room. Maybe someone will spill the beans post-career. I'm sure I will be surprised by the facts if and when they one day come out. It certainly has been miserable to follow in the past. The culmination point perhaps being Scott Stevens's sudden departure after only a year as an assistant coach. If Stevens is not tough enough to survive our locker room, no-one is.
  3. They have been great. Every team loses here and there. Now it's a question will they make sure they won't lose two in a row.
  4. Ruxpin, we're pissed because the Wild can't get anywhere as long as our locker room is able to oust any coach they want the moment the coach wants them to do something they don't want to. This has now been going on from the start of the Suter/Parise era, and will probably go on until their contracts end. Boudreau gone is not the big deal, it's the way and timing of this that indicates once more that yes, the players really do have control over things they definitely should not be controlling. It makes no difference whatsoever who the coach is as long as the coach does not have authority over some players. When Guerin came, there was hope that maybe Guerin would be able to correct the power relations, but Guerin's behaviour here makes it seem that either he doesn't get the big picture, or that he's joined the player bandwagon. If either of these fears is close to truth, the Wild is doomed to its mediocrity until the end of the Guerin/Suter/Parise era.
  5. Guess who said what: "the guys need a different voice right now moving forward." Quote on Boudreau firing, but was this said by Suter or Guerin? "maybe a new voice will help certain things" Quote on Boudreau firing, but was this said by Suter or Guerin? With 6 years left we'll hear the same blaming the coach -routine from Suter about the next coach as well. He always looks for a scapegoat. It's pathetic.
  6. Yep. There are the official rules, and the rules that are followed in reality. We should be grateful that the NHL isn't force feeding us this shootout garbage during the playoffs.
  7. Dumba for Domi would certainly make it easier to forget the badly timed (and disrespectful) firing of Boudreau!
  8. It certainly is a job you wouldn't wish for even to your worst enemy.
  9. Here's a measurement of what Guerin had to say about Boudreau's firing.
  10. [Hidden Content] Why? I'm waiting for a pretty good explanation for this one. Not unexpected, but what is the point?
  11. Well at least a point. Not good enough, though. An OT win would be a must here. Not looking good. Rely on Fiala here.
  12. It takes more than a couple of a games to adjust, true. But Chucky is on his 4th team, and his former team mates are wondering aloud in interviews if he can make it in the NHL. I think he has this season to prove it and if by the end of the season he doesn't look good, he might not get signed, at least here. It means very little. He was the price for getting both the 1st rounder and Addison, and Guerin was probably aware of the fact.
  13. The problem with the Burns trade was that we got nothing comparable back. If trading Dumba would bring us a legit 1C with mileage left, seeing Dumba excel elsewhere would not sting that badly. But how much would he be worth...
  14. I'm going to have to listen to this one on the radio. It would be an interesting game, with no Zucker, and Galc trying to make an impression. With Stalock we should have a decent chance of getting a win.
  15. Thanks for the links! Well that was straightforward from Parenteau. Gonna be interesting to see Gal playing after reading Parenteau's comments.
  16. Exactly. Knows North American culture and beer, lived in Europe from age 4 to 15, speaks English, Russian and Italian. If he doesn't know how to adjust to different environments, no-one can.
  17. I just realised Gal can speak Russian as well and knows what it is like to adjust to a different culture. If he is able to salvage his career, and stay in MIN next season, he can help in Kaprizov's adjustment to North America. The more I think about this trade, the more it makes me like Guerin. This looks like a really thought-out trade.
