2018-19 Iowa Wild and other Wild Prospects Discussion

Recommended Posts

Sad news continuing. Just finished listening a game between Iowa Wild and Texas Stars(final score is 1:4). It’s our 5th loss in a row (and a 3rd loss in a row on home ice). One single goal was able to put Dmitry Sokolov who is having so far 30 points (16 goals;14 assists) in 57 played games.

That is very worrying indeed. I have high hopes for Kaapo Kahkonen developing into a very skilled goalie, capable of stealing games even in Cup finals. So far in his career he has been winning goalie, even carrying a team by himself for extended time periods. If he is not capable of getting Iowa into playoffs, it's an ominous sign. Either he's injured, achieved the ceiling of his potential, not trained properly or not happy playing in Iowa. Any of these reasons would be very worrying.

These last two losses against Texas were at home.  Now they have to try to get back on track against Tucson who visits early this week.  I watched part of their game on Friday thanks to Bear, and I liked the speed of the team and early on they looked great and then it just kind of fell apart.  

 

I think Iowa misses Matt Read and Kapla a bit.  I know they have some young college players they have on ATO's, but they really need to get back to their roots.

Good to hear about them being ok and fast initially. Hopefully it's just the inconsistency of developing, young players.

Iowa Wild team recorded its 6th losing game streak yesterday. They lost against Tucson in regulation with a score 4:5 on home ice. Menell recorded his 40th assist and Rau his 27th goal(18th PP goal). Tonight it should be a must win game. All they need to win at least 3-4 more games to feel better. No way to lose it again. Enough losing second year in a row at the end of the season. I am surprise that they did not replaced goalie during the game in case if a goalie(Hammond in that game)was losing 4 goals in about 7 minutes period. And that  scenario is happened few times recently for both goalies. I am surprised also that they did not call for Motte’s help who seemed was losing less goals than both current goalies at this moment. Maybe there is too much pressure for them to make a playoffs this season. Not sure. I have feelings if they will not make a playoffs this year then their current coach will be fired as they did with the previous coach at the end of the season last year.

Iowa choked another game away last night.  They were up 3-1 going into the 3rd and lost 4-3 in OT.  Mayhew had a hat trick.  The losing streak is at 7 games and counting and that big cushion they had in the standings is mostly gone now.

Yeah,7th lost game in a row. Surprised that they put for that game the same goalie Hammond as they did the day before. Hat trick was nice , but not enough for the win.

Hammond again, and keep losing. Worrying, very worrying. No confidence in Kähkönen, or Kähkönen hurt? Damn, the Finnish reporters covering the NHL should make a detour and interview him to maybe get some inside information on what the problem/problems are.

We are losing again 0:2 after the first period against Milwaukee Admirals. Kahkonen is in the net tonight. Admirals stats in the last 10 games are 8-0-1-1, and ours are 2-7-1-0, including last 7 losses. 2 other teams reached us too with 81 points. What is going on with our 2 clubs in the month of March and April this season? No one was able to step up to get our teams to the playoffs spot. I think we are badly need at least a different goaltender to help boosting teams confidence.

Another one bites the dust. There's probably a flaw in his game, that the other teams figured out after the shutouts.

LIG. I agree. Probably is too little too late already. I was proposing to bring a different goaltender Motte before. Now is probably too late for his call. I am disappointing with that team too same way as with the big club this year . What kind of team is that, if lost already 8 games in a row right before the playoffs season starting? Are any winning mentality left in their players brains? Is anybody out of about 30 players capable to step up and lead the team to get at least to the playoffs? Or we will see a 6th year unsuccessful attempt for the farm club to make a playoffs  was stopped this year the exactly same way as ours 6th year playoffs participation was stopped for the big club ?

Yeah, no doubt Leipold, Suter, Parise, Mikko's fault! They made the minor league team lose!

 

And of course Doobie's fault the flash in the pan goalie was just a flash.  Doobie played too many games! If the kid had been promoted to the NHL prematurely like the clueless DoobieHater69 demanded he would have been the next Ken Dryden!

Stalking dissenting opinions.  Again.  Go back to your bunker.  You clearly supported participation trophies in your youth.

Minnesota Wild reassigns Donato, Kunin, and Greenway to Iowa. Hope it will boost some production and the team's mentality towards winning of remaining last 3 games of the season.

After the team missed the NHL playoffs they should have sent those guys to Iowa. They might have helped stop the skid a few games earlier.

I'm not sure why they waited so long after the season to send them down to Iowa.

Agreed. We still have a chance if we will be able to win the last 2 games of the season.

We had a nice win(7:3) 2 days ago by beating a second team in our Division - Grand Rapids Griffins.
Wild reinforcement (Donato, Kunin,Greenway) were the main contributors(11 points out of 18) in that game. Donato had 5 points(2 goals;3 assists); Kunin had 4 points(3 goals;1 assist); Greenway - 2 points(2 assists). Tonight we are playing on home ice against the first team in our Division - Chicago Wolves. No doubt is a must win game.

Very promising!

Another promise is happening also in KHL Gagarin Cup playoffs now. Our 2 unsigned yet prospects Kirill Kaprizov and Andrei Svetlakov together with CSKA team, Moscow have won a 2nd year in a row a Western Conference finals of the Gagarin Cup by beating a 2 times champions SKA team, Saint Petersburg(in 7 games) and advanced to the Gagarin Cup finals again. Both players improved their playoffs records - Kaprizov (in 15 games) has 3 goals and 9 assists;+/- +2 and Svetlakov (in 14 games) has 1 goal and 6 assists; +/- +6. As well as both having a pretty nice playoffs experience by achieving in 2 years in a row Gagarin Cup finals.

I would make a pitch for the goalie Ilya sorokin from the same team : iles own his rights 

Defenceman : Vladislav Gavrikov(

CSKA team,Moscow won today the first game in Gagarin Cup finals against Avangard team,Omsk with a score of 5:2. Svetlakov put a pretty nice goal on a second minute of the 1st period. He played together with Kaprizov in that line.

Iowa Wild team won a difficult last game in OT against Chicago Wolves (2:1). Both goals were put by our captain - Cal O'Reilly. We still have a chance to get into playoffs if we will win tonight game against Rockford IceHogs and Chicago Wolves will win one of the last 2 games against of Manitoba Moose.

I just finished listening our last Iowa Wild game of the regular 2018-2019 year and we won it with a shutout 3:0. That means according to a radio commentator we are for the first time in Iowa Wild history have got into the playoffs. The other teams which are competitive around us for the Calder Cup playoffs spot are still in a battle. Congrats to our farm club waiting for that franchise day 6 years already!!!

      I have not been posting as much, but totally impressed with you and this whole new fairly new Wild contingent. Super knowledgeable on your prospects and I love learning about other teams up and comers from posters who know what they are talking about. This site just rocks as far as hockey knowledge in general....really slanted towards Flyer fans, but somewhere around 10 Flyer fans on here have the best sense of humour and sarcasm I've ever encountered. I'm cracked up daily by their wit, which is

      Hey kids! Let's have some fun with numbers!   Here's how the various teams stack up with both Alexandron's draft success rate (164 games) and Fargo's draft success rate (100 games). A few things: These numbers come from the 2000-2018 drafts. So the impacts of the last three or four drafts really aren't factored in here, but I didn't want to exclude them in case a team had a player that qualified for our "success" rate (like Auston Matthews). The Atlanta/Winnipeg teams are

      One thing I certainly hope Fenton changes is the Wild's practice of giving prospects roster spots before they earn it. Just to give them incentive...I really hope they send Greenway to Iowa and let him develop at his own pace. Show he can dominate at the AHL level and then call him up.   And I agree with you on Kunin. I thought they should have gone with Kieffer Bellows. But they were looking for Mikko's replacement, so yay...   How much of Sokolov's production hinged on the

      A lot of us came from this horrid place called philly.com. The posters attacking each other was common place, and the mods thought they were gods....lol. That was well over 10 yrs ago. I had almost 30,000 posts in that ********...lol. This place is basically hockey posting nirvana....all of the good, none of the bad and 99% of the posters are basically polite and civil. For hockey fans seeking knowledge and fun, there is simply no better place that I have seen.
