Predictions?

Recommended Posts

The Wild barely beat a team who had a game 24h earlier,  who played their 4th game in 6 days and who played with their 2nd string goalie.

 

Yeah, I guess it is what it is.

My prediction for tomorrow game(10/22/19)
Wild-Oilers - 5:4;
for Thursday game(10/24/19) -
Wild-Predators - 4:3(OT).
The positive part from the last game was a better team's winning mentality, which maybe will be transferred at least to the next 2 games. We will be in a better position if the team will start placing  4-5 goals per game.

I predict we will see a lot of the other team's backup goalies from now on. The Oilers have two goalies, that are very similar, so that doesn't help us against them, but against other teams we might be helped by a "It's only the Wild" attitude.

You're optimistic that it can get worse.;) 

It could get worse if they trade somebody like Foligno.

He's about the only one who still plays with effort and heart on this team.

In fact I would trade him for his sake so he could enjoy his efforts with another actual team.

It's a time for the team to start winning at least with the same rate. It seems we are winning about every  other game (4-9-0 for October). In the next 5 months (November; December; January; February and March) we have a chance to make about 20 wins(4 per month). Last game we lost to St.Louis. But tomorrow we are going to win against the same team - a Stanley Cup winner of the last season. My prediction is 5:2 in a score. I did not predict 10:0 score, because it does not look too real against Binnington, but 5:2 is giving a slight satisfaction for the game on a home ice. Tarasenko is injured and is not going to be an issue for our team during the next 5 months. Hope, Dubnyk will be able to stop 48 out of their 50 shots towards our net; and Kunin, Donato; Fiala;Greenway and Parise each will be able to put a goal into the opposite net , but not into our net like it happened against a Dallas team.  Optimism even the worse one is a common part of our life. We just need to look for it . 😎.

Right now my optimism is just wanting to see a good full game...Win or lose.

Not just periods.

Can we for at least the next game win 5-2? ...Sure.

I need to see something click in the O and D lines to make me think that score is reasonably reached.

That's where my optimism will grow.

It seems the current dilemma among our fans -" must to win" or " must to lose" for every game of the Wild team, which is depending on the fans wishes -1) to tank for the future rebuild or 2) just to get a playoffs spot for the future attempt to reach a Stanley Cup finals.

 

As usual 🙂, I am predicting the win tonight  against Ducks with a score 3:2(OT). Hope , Boudreau found the solution to be successful in OT.🧐

And hope Donato will be able to put a goal tonight. I just do not believe, how good he was in about first 10 games after trading last season, and then became a non-factor for the Wild team as well as for the Calder Cup playoffs in the Iowa Wild uniform.

I think 25 wins could be the ceiling for this team. I would hope for Parise and Suter to waive their NTC but no team in their right mind would pick them up without basically the Wild still paying for at least 55% of their contract.

Parise has been a crybaby lately, he might, but who would take him...?

 

Suter? 🙂 No. Read McLellan's latest article? Suter: " “I love everything about my life right now,” defenseman Ryan Suter said.

Here is my prediction.

No one currently on this team wins a Stanley Cup while on this team.

Matt Dumba, Jordan Greenway, Luke Kunin will be ready for retirement before this team is cup ready.

I know for sure Koivu, Suter and Parise will never see a cup unless they somehow got traded to a cup winning team. Put I honestly don't think those 3 really care if they win or not. They all got very overpaid with contracts that made it impossible to do anything to them if they don't put any effort or care to win a cup out there. I believe, when people say Parise actually wants to win, it's all a act. If he wanted to win he knew signing that contract was really going to limit the team on what they can do and build. The effort and skill for him as dropped drastically in the last 5 years. I might be wrong but I really do believe he doesn't care about winning a Cup. Look at guys who wanted to win one so badly. The grind they do. The fact they will take over a game and carry it. The drive and fire behind their words. Parise had this the first few years but became very comfortable becoming a GM/Owner and making the team a focus on him and Suter.

Care to elaborate?

 

Going to get worse before it gets better.... fan heartache of losing record bottom of the barrel for a couple 3 years. Worth it if we can ever make deep playoff runs in the future

I very much doubt 3 years is enough to be bad. Landing a top prospect in the next draft isn't enough either. Although I think too it's not going get just worse and worse if they make some good moves within the next year.

 

Say like, not offer extensions to Koivu and Dubnyk. Let Parise continue his hustle in the 4th line.

You are 100% correct.  Not offering to extend two of the Country Club, and diminishing the TOI of the other two will diminish their on ice contribution, and by default, their appalling lack of effort and team play on the ice.  However, I think the most effective 'shot across the bow' would be to pull the A's.  That will either change their arrogant attitude to positive, or motivate them to request a trade - which would help the team greatly - addition by subtraction.   We can then get a better look at what we don't have, and ensure some years of high draft choices and a full rebuild.  Not sure if BG would do it, but I am guessing CL will get in the way.

      Sure the constant line juggling is a mistake. But I think too it's of less importance with this roster. When we had Granny, Coyle, Nino, Zucker in his prime... then it hurt more.   Staal and Koivu - slow and slower. No matter where you put them that line slows down and suffers. Parise can't do anything with the puck. He just hustles, not playing like a franchise player. So you have the top two lines phucked up no matter what's the combo.

      From my observation, we mainly have on this forum fans of 2 professional NHL teams -the Flyers and the Wild. I still would prefer our personal predicting Wild thread here as we had for decades before on a Wild.com link,  just to focus our fans exclusively to the team's results instead of wasting/spreading our attention to other teams which are possibly not presenting a lot of interest  to the Wild fans. Because we do not  know perfectly well the other teams players; lines; goalies and their pote

      Last year I was asked to not run a MN Wild Prediction thread and instead the Pick'em format was rolled out. So this year I didn't make a MN Wild Prediction thread either.   However, what's your prediction for the year? I'm thinking 32 wins and 52 loses. Can they get 32 wins? I'm being optimistic.
