Just joining the party here. I'll read and respond when I have a bit more time. I hope all us fans from the Wild's NHL site will re-join here. I enjoy our discussions...even with those of you I don't always agree with.
Gee, dude....thanks a lot for reminding me Dany Heatley and Thomas Vanek played for the Wild!
I spent many hours in therapy coming to terms with the fact that part of my life is over....and now this...….
Flyer fans have a ban on mentioning Hal Gill, or else they get reported.....I think Wild fans should have something similar with regards to Dany Floater and Thomas VanWreck………
@sweetshot to others not sure from where we came from basically it's the same, it's like when you buy a car but you opt for the upgraded model. So looks and runs very similar just has some nicer features and has On Star AKA Admins who actually have a presence and give a damn.
I don't think I would blow this team up until trying a few changes.
#1 Stall Zucker Granlund
#2 mikko on the 3rd line
#3 suter lower his minutes and shortenhis shifts. No more energy conservation
#4 change to a higher pressure fore check. Not necessarily heavy fore checking, but quick in your face attack.
#5 base ice time and power play time on 5 on 5 production. Comparing the production of 2 players isn't fair if 1 has pp time and the other doesn't.
If their game doesn't improve after that we'll at the trade deadline.
