Are they ever going to sign Kirill Kaprizov?

 

His season is over he could always join them.

Kaprizov just won the cup there now is the time to bring him and his teammate to the state of hockey. The GM better not sit on his hands for too long or those guys will become strangers.

They may be able to sign him if Leipold makes a "congratulatory" gift to CSKA Moscow for winning the Gagarin Cup...otherwise the Wild may have to wait until 2020...

 

And even though his season is over, he was not listed on the Iowa Wild reserve roster, so even if the Wild sign him tomorrow, he would be ineligible for the AHL Playoffs...

I see he is under contract for next year so yeah no dice...the KHL and NHL don't have a transfer agreement like the SHL and Liiga.

 

Oh well maybe after next season is over....

Agree. They both(Kaprizov and his teammate Svetlakov) should be sign first of all and as soon as possible by the Wild organization. Time was already yesterday, but we did not use it in time. Both played and are still playing for the best club in entire KHL,and  having a much much better experience and a higher professional level than players in AHL. No doubt that the level of AHL stays third after NHL and KHL levels in a world  hockey range.  Bigger arena there in comparison to our arena size, is not a big deal. Real professionals accommodate to it pretty fast. And they did play at international competitions in a smaller arenas. Examples, Radulov, Kovalchuk, Ovechkin, Tarasenko, Datsyuk and many others Russian players as well as players from other European countries also previously played in a bigger fields than in US. I did not see a big difference. The main problems for them here - different culture, different language, different style of life, home sickness. If they will pass them successfully then they will be able to show their talent in full if they have it.

Like I said, if Leipold made a congratulatory "gift" to CSKA Moscow, they may be persuaded to release him from his deal. But yeah, I think the earliest we see Kaprisov is the 2020-2021 season...

Leipold better not be cheap and should make a sizable gift as soon as possible! These guys could help make up for the severe lack of scoring, talent, and depth currently on the wild and may help save the team's non-rebuild rebuild.

Sorry I'm not following.

 

What kind of gift? A bribe of some sort?

 

What can you get a russian?

 

A bottle of Jack Daniel's?

I'm speaking (typing?) tongue in cheek. I'm guessing a sizeable monetary contribution to CSKA Moscow's "Youth Development Academy" or a large monetary donation to "upgrade the scoreboard at CSKA Arena" would be what it takes to pry Kaprisov out of  the final year of his contract.

 

Vegas just signed Nikita Gusev, but he had to give back signing bonuses and contract incentives that he already earned in order to leave his contract early. Plus he's 26 and his SKA St. Petersburg contract expired the end of April 2019. Kaprisov is only 21 and has a full year left on his deal. Gonna take a bigger crowbar to get him out of his contract than the one used to get Gusev out of his...

This topic has gone off the rails. By the way go Iowa Wild.

Agree. Back to the topic. Good news - Iowa Wild team just finished a second game against a very tough team Admirals with a second win in a row( 6:1) on our home ice. What is impressing me the most - nice scores for us in both games(7:0 and 6:1). 13 goals into the opposite net and just 1 goal into our net are pretty solid statistics. Goaltending is an outstanding too so far for us on 63 shots towards our net in 2 games.

Kind of interesting what happens when players actually shoot the puck at the net instead of worrying about "Who should I pass it to?"

Everyone was saying the Wild needed to make the Playoffs to give they young guys a taste of Playoff hockey. I’m glad they missed the Playoffs and the young guys are doing this in Iowa. They’re playing with a bunch of guys that are fighting every night, not a bunch of prima donnas who fold up like a house of cards whenever a team gets physical with them...

Looks like a bit of a hiccup last night. Ads take game 3 with a score of 3-1. Be interesting to see how these guys respond. Do they curl up in the fetal position or do they dig deep and knock the Ads out of the series on the Ads home ice?

 

Nice to see Kyle Rau score again...

Agree, they should step up and not only them. The entire team should. Score in those series is 2:2.Tonight is a last crucial game in that round.

Wow, Iowa WILD WIN the first round series!!! By beating Admirals on the road with a score 2:1 during the last game and moved to a second round. Hammond stopped 26 shots towards our net out of 27. Cal O'Reilly and Belpedio put 2 goals into the Admirals net. Next round(first 2 games) we will play in Chicago against Wolves on Wednesday and Thursday(May 1st and 2nd).

Good for the Baby Wild. They did something the parent club hasn’t been able to do for four seasons. Win a playoff series.

It’s nice to see players that want to be out on the ice instead of going through the motions great win now let’s win the second round. Maybe some of the players in minny  will get the drift.

Honestly, I think it was a great season for Iowa just getting to the Playoffs, especially after the eight game losing streak at the end of the season. Anything after is frosting...

      Watched the game last night; and I've watched their last 4 games.  Here are some thoughts.   Cal O'Reilly, Matt Read, Will Bitten, and especially Gerald Mayhew play like they really want to win every night.  They give all the effort they can muster and most of the dangerous scoring chances comes through this group and their efforts.  Kyle Rau and Sam Anas have flashes, but I still think they could be more assertive.  I'd like to see the Wild use Mitch McLain as a screen on the power pl

      Disappointed in the reports on Greenway & Donato.  Russo also stated he thought Greenway was playing at "half speed".   Hopes it's an aberration and not a character issue.

      I don't know if you remember, but at the beginning of this season there was all this talk of moving Koivu to a new role (i.e. 3C) and giving Coyle and Eriksson-Ek more time. What happened? Nothing. Coyle and Eriksson-Ek got to play musical chairs with the 3C position until the Wild sent Eriksson-Ek to Iowa. And then there was the roster line-up thing where they penciled Koivu in as the 1C because they didn't want to offend him, even though everyone knew Staal was the 1C. Not sure why they d

      I just hope these young guys aren't pouting because they got sent to the AHL. You're in the Playoffs! So what if it's in the AHL? What would you be doing in the NHL? Getting ready to hit the links, that's what.   And if those guys think it's better to be in the NHL and out golfing than in the AHL and in a Playoff series, then the Wild are going to be no better off than they were before the trades...

      Well, it was a good run.   Hopefully the Baby Wild can build on this for the future. Nice to see Kunin show some leadership, but disappointed in Donato's performance and really disappointed in Greenway's performance and attitude. Especially since those two took other players spots that helped get the team to the Playoffs.
