Re: All-in-all, how bad is this start?

They'll find a way to back into the playoffs and get dope slapped in the first round.

They can't even tank correctly.

Kunin

Kid might have to talk to Brodin's lawyer about a restraining order, that's how much I like this kid. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that the Wild need to seriously look at, ah, divesting themselves of at least one salary when everyone is healthy. Maybe Ennis would enjoy the warm Arizona weather t...

I think that's part of the problem. He's got to get back to 100% rather than trying to rush himself.

And Chicago is 2-0-0.

How ya feel right now?

The comeback in Carolina was good, I'll give them that. But Chicago looks tough right now.

Re: G1: Loss 4-2 @ DET

thara - wasn't the puck already in the crease when Howard was bumped? If so, doesn't that invalidate GI? Need a zebra's input here.

Granny looked like he was pushed.

I might be a bit biased but I didn't like either call.

Re: G1: Loss 4-2 @ DET

This team gets into their own heads so easily.

Do they need to scrap the D coach on the bench and get a Bench Shrink?

Re: Is Parise that important?

Who is moving up into Parise's position? Winnik? Ennis? Foligno?

Last I checked, we had (22-12-3) and (16-9-64) as our top 2 lines.

So Erik Karlsson can call his partner?

I'm so sick of players trying to be the coach and GM.

Is Parise that important?

Scoggins seems to think Parise's absence is a big problem.

IMO, the only issue is that it hamstring's CF's ability to bring in more talent.

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...

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?
