  3. Agreed. Both our goalies live and die with our D as a group effort. Then Dubnyk comes up with a 3 game SO streak. We don't know if it was him alone or the group effort effect. Then you have Stalock, 44% in this pole wanted to see him play more based on what we've seen of him and some timely wins. We got to see him 6 (?) straight games and he did fine going .500. Since then sporadically playing and nothing's changed improvement wise. I feel we've seen what his level is at. Always a chance he improves but we're going back to riding Dubs, So.... The Canuck game should have been Stalock. I don't care how well Dubnyk played against the jets, It was the perfect opportunity to get Stalock some more playing time. The fact that it was the 2nd night of the BtB and Dubnyk's wife about to deliver made no sense to start Dubnyk.
  4. Usually 1 or 2 people stand out to me - but this time - I think the entire team stood out (well, besides Doobs). I thought Rau was awesome - and, cough - Suter seemed to finally have some pep in his step... Mikko did a great job too... I think that was the best game I've seen them play this year... Unfortunately, like the Vikings, you just never know what team is going to show up for the next game...

  6. I've been saying similar. While Mikko's job is to shut down the other team's top line, We're wasting our best wingers while many others could support the effort and Koivu. Meanwhile freeing up our scorers to run with Staal and make an offensive threat line of our own. It doesn't seem other teams adjust their game to shut down our top line like we seem to do for others every game. Also put Coyle in 4th line until he earns his way back. Or if the lines were to change as mentioned, Put him with Koivu.

  8. Perfect time to start winning games MN Wild. Have not had a winning streak yet this year and say its about time ya start one. Also, it's time to stop losing to bottom feeder teams and play full 60 minute games for a change.
  9. Mikko Koivu: 47 games, 6 goals and 19 assists, +/- rating 0. He's on pace for what 10 goals and 35 assists for a lousy $6.75 million a year! And this guy was a keeper and a someone whose contract you wanted to extend in advance since you know, uh oh, plenty of teams wanted him... Where is that "Fire Fletcher" thread when you need it?
  10. I'm not sure what you mean by "rightly" but it's true he's hand picked all by himself all of them. Can't blame the previous GM. Too proud to admit this has gone bad?

  12. Tough call to determine whether you move forward with planning which has Koivu as your 3rd line center. IMO, much easier call to choose to pay him no more than 3.5 to 4M per..... AND not tie the hands of your franchise with a NTC. Fletcher rightly believes he will live or die with this veteran core. A blow up and start over (And good luck with that with the contracts he's doled out) would be under the next GM. Odds are stacked against CF in a very stacked division.

In a way its kind of like the Vikings, can they refocus after an emotional win over Tampa Bay on Saturday. This has the makings of a trap game but these are two points the team has to find a way to get. Enjoy!
  14. Thanks! They've already found out it'll be a girl and they named her McKenna Leigh. She's very mobile in there! lol

  25. I agree with you Bbgarnett. Kyle Rau was pretty visible yesterday - nice speed, nice shot, smart game read. As well as he got his 1st point in a Wild uniform during the Hockey Day in Minnesota. The exciting moment last night also was in our good solid win against of 1st team so far in NHL and that 4 Minnesotans got points - 2 goals and 2 assists (Parise, Prosser, Rau, Cullen). Matt have got his 700th point during that special day in Minnesota. And I also liked how our fans supported the team yesterday. Wish to see that way more often.
  26. Because so far that is the line with the most developed chemistry in 2 years. The other 3 lines are still looking for their strong bricks to develop something similar and consistent in performance.
  27. Why does everyone want mikko paired up with best wingers on this team and force Staal to carry a line. I would rather see Zucker Staal granlund. Parise koivu eek Ennis Coyle ninno
