If the Wild gets embarrassed, it could galvanize them and they might turn their season around.
On the other hand, an embarrassment is just what Fan Boy #1 needs to see to allow Guerin to rebuild this team.
This is a game though that the Wild should lose, but they'll find some way to win it...
My glass is neither half full, nor half empty. It just kind of spilled all over the table. The liquid is still there, it's just not in the glass...
The only reason the Wild got the Winter Classic is because they showed NBC and the NHL they could offer a better money making opportunity than anyone else. That and Leipold's continuous whining about it.
I'm just hoping these public embarrassments finally get Fan Boy #1 to realize he's just assembled a collection of names and not a team and allows the GM to do his thing and blow this team the f*#$ up...
I think the Wild will look extra sluggish like they played the night before in Vancouver and hopped on board the red-eye to Pittsburgh. The Penguins embarrassed the Wild last time with kids from Wilkes-Barre making our regulars look like crap.
Now that the team is whole again, We're back to the same 'ol chit.
We saw some silver lining by having the youth come up at times so now would be a good time
to cycle them in more often. Give the 'vets' less time and more rest every 2-3 games.
I don't care what it does now with the lines and chemistry since the one's who've played together the longest
aren't showing any.
At least it wouldn't be a blatant "tanking" since we'd be able to give the youth more experience and
