Given both the team stats, This could be a high scoring game.
But with Fluery in goal, He might want to try to match Talbot's game the day he showed up and to show off to his new home crowd.
Let's go a bit crazy ...Wild win this one 6-2. 😁

Just now, bbgarnett said:

Is someone going to get on Fiala. It seems game after game he's been a turnover machine.

 

He's been that way pretty much since he entered the league.

The main reason I am in favor of bringing his value up, then trading him for a nice return.
I just think that is the way he is....and that could cost the Wild in a playoff scenario.

I don't really dislike the guy as a talent.... but I'd rather take a bit LESS talent if the player is more responsible with the puck.

Loving this mean streak the team is showing.

My husband just told me it reminds him of the old Minnesota North Stars.
He says, "They'll check you, take your lunch, then score on you"

My husband, BTW, is no longer a big hockey fan. That died when the North Stars moved and he follows the Wild just a bit, only because I do.
But the way THESE MN Wild play...might bring him back, eh? :)
