Tortorella

Think he's a "shelf-life" coach? I was talking to a neighbor who's a Jacket's fan, who doesn't seem to think Torts has a shelf life. So the guy has had tenures of: 4 games (Rangers) 7 seasons (Lightning) 5 seasons (Rangers) 1 season (Nux) 1+ seasons (BJ's) Another point to raise, we were t...

I want to see more of 20/24 and 25/46

Despite how much it would annoy some people, I think it gives the most efficient use of our D.

Re: Extending Koivu

Depends on the price. Bigger term usually means a lower AAV, and if you get him before he hits 35, the contract is released if he retires.

5Y/15Mil isn't that bad a hit.

Re: Extending Koivu

I mean, there's less risk if they can sign him before he turns 35, though, right?

Why couldn't you give him term (5 years gets him to 40) and reasonable $$$?

Extending Koivu

Should the Wild extend Koivu before he turns 35? Should they extend him at all?

Personally, I'd see if he's willing to take a hometown discount (say, 5-4-3-2-1, comes out to 3 per) to stay after this year. If so, extend him before March so that he's not on a 35+ contract.

What's your take?

I think next year we'll check out the Ohio State Fair, but it sounds like it'll be on par with a Minnesota county fair.

Re: Okay Twins, what you got?

The Twins are the only team in this town who have managed to avoid breaking our hearts (twice, even).

They'll still break your heart, though.

Re: Do you go to the Fair?

What sucks is that my kids start school in the middle of August, so getting to the Fair would be difficult at best unless we go home for Labor Day.

Sounds like CF offered one of Tuch, Greenway, and Kaprizov.

Not sure how I feel about that.

Re: Vegas gets Haula and Tuch

Look at it like this: We traded Haula and Tuch for Dumba or Scandella. Does that make it more palatable?

What if we trade Scandella for another forward? (From MTL? For Galchenyuk, perhaps?) Would that make it easier to swallow?

Re: youth hockey

It's standard practice in USA Hockey and the ADM to play half ice through mites. Squirts start playing full ice because they are generally bigger kids.
