He was instrumental in the NHL returning to Minnesota.  He had a big part of setting the cultural tone with this club.  Yet, I am certain he made a killing off this club when he sold his share of his controlling interest of it to Leipold.  RIP Bob...

I read the full article and I saw that he was not shy of meeting the fans inside the front gate.

He had a pretty quick wit if you listen to that interview he had with Falness and Mileski.  Certainly a hockey fan.

Hell of a good investment on his part.  Too bad he didn't reinvest in players after the miracle run to the WCF.

 

Name the three big signees after the WCF run?

No.  The year I'm talking about:

 

Russian goon

AHL/NHL plugger journeyman Dman

Don Cherry's favorite type of Euro Dman

Probably couldn't afford keeping them.

Doubt it. Like @Fargocase constantly pointed out, the Wild were consistently in the bottom five of payroll under Naegle's ownership. And this is despite selling out 409 straight games in an arena that seats 18,000+. The sell out streak ended after Leipold bought the Wild. So Naegle had a sold out building during his entire ownership.

 

It's not that he couldn't afford the team, he just found someone who wanted the team more than he did and was willing to pay for it...

I remember when they let Ronning walk over something like $250k or $500k difference.  Daigle wasn't that bad for the Wild to be honest.  I mean, we signed the guy to a 3-way deal.  So its not like it was a giant risk on our team's part.

That's a $1M-question.

 

I would say: Eric Chouinard, Filip Kuba (?) and Zholtok, tough I think he played for the Wild in its 2nd season probably...

Good guesses but nope.  The "Nasty" Russian goon I don't think even played for the Wild.  He was sent to Houston and I don't think he played for them, they sent him hom.

I think the softie Euro Man had a brother.  You knit with yarn and shouldn't quit too easy...  The journeyman guy came from Edm organization...

Two out of three!  Akeula was such an entertaining player.  Play good then commit the most bone-headed turnover ever!  Then make an even stupider mistake next game.  Then top it the next game!🤣
