I wrote up the game preview.  @MNSOTAwill be on the post-gamer tonight, which will have lots of extras for you to check out.  Last night the Wild played like it was a throwaway game and got the result they deserved.  Clearly they felt they didn't have much to play for and the effort reflected that.  Sad, because they did have something to play for.  I go on a bit of a rant, because this team's history has shown it doesn't have that ability to flip a switch.  Enjoy and discuss...

After the last game embarrassing play and loss, I do not expect anything from tonight game out of our team. This game does not mean a lot for both teams. Standing in our division will not change for both teams.

When I said Man Baby would revert back to melting the ice after his mini streak, I was slightly kidding.  I thought he would at least net a garbage goal at some point.  Ten games with zero goals is a waivers type performance when contracted as one of the two highest paid players on the team. 10th in goals and 13th in points (tied with ill-suited) is utterly laughable.  Some Return on Investment with 4 more years remaining.  You couldn’t BE a bigger boat anchor.  WAIVE your NMC - you are a sunk cost (and player).

Whoa, Just saw Jimtown Guy's projected line up 😮 

Like I said, we are watching the AHL reward line-up, and we are up 3-rip.  Makes up for the abysmal performance from two nights ago.  Rested legs of our Stars better not yield a flat start in the playoffs - time to deliver in an opening series (a guy can dream). 😜

In charity bidding:  $11k for Kap Jersey alone.  $4k for Parise Jersey and gear (with Parise in it).   Who is the drunken BOOB who drops 4 large for the Gnomes gear?  You could spot me $4k and I still wouldn’t buy and show up in that drop cloth at a wild game. (I would, however, use it on the garage floor to protect the cement while executing an oil change).  (Good cause, but how about Brodin or Fiala as second option to Kap)?
