Thank God we can finally bring a young talent and significant asset in limbo into the fold. Now, we have to try not to let the culture ruin him, and figure out how to get him signed longer term when his deal expires.
In a strange way this might be the best scenario for Kirill to join us and the NHL.
2 screwed up seasons with him getting used to everything.
First 'season' of being around the team and practicing with little pressure.
Then a shorter season to show his stuff. Of course neither of these seasons are set in stone these days.
Nice also happened in the same day that our interim Wild Coach Dean Evason was signed as a Head Coach. In general, it was a big day for the Wild team today - 2 important contracts were signed. In my opinion, under Dean Evason team played pretty well this season(we had 8-4-0 record), and I had a real interest to watch our team even when we lost to a better teams we still were competitive enough against them. As well as Fiala's individual star shined also under Dean Evason coaching this season. Ho
