There are a handful of older goalies that will be UFA this summer that would be perfect for a 1 year deal to help Kahkonen break into the league.

The PP is the only situation where Parise is doing anything this season.
You have a very different view from mine of "doing".
He's tied for 4th in the NHL with 11 PP goals. I would call that "doing" something.

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

Apparently some conversation that Trocheck is not really a center though. .. kind of that tweener type who can be a pivot for the offense, but not a two-way guy. I'd be interested to see what Henrik Borgström would look like with a change of scenery. Also I heard there was a need in the Wild's syst...

I see Florida is thinking about trading Vincent Trocheck. He is a center, 26 years old, and makes 4.75 million a year. The down side is he has had a couple of down years. Would he be worth a gamble?
I think he is exactly what they need.

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

I don't follow the team nearly as much as most observers here, but it seems to me, so far at least, that Guerin is just what this organization needed. Tough and demanding, and willing to make changes that will lead to improvements. Not immediately perhaps, but it appears that he won't settle for me...

After seeing what New Jersey just got for Greene and Coleman, guys like Pateryn, Hunt, Galchenyuk, and Foligno better be gone by next monday.

Doesn't make much sense to fire your coach and then have the replacement do exactly what the old coach would do.

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

Wonder if Adam Oates will be at the coach killers pregame ceremony? Better chance Fletcher and Yeo are sitting side by side. Seeing as their careers were prolonged by the Suter Parise signings. Yeo would have been Richards 2.0 without them and last about 1.5 years and certainly wouldn’t have got th...

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

To me the coaching move can only lead to 2 things for the rest of the season: 1. They take off 2. They slide into the abyss Whatcha got? I wouldn't expect much to change in the results. The goaltenders are still terrible. I would hope to see better player usage and a more aggressive style of play t...

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

I like Foligno. He's a leader and one of the few guys who steps up to protect his teammates. I like Foligno as well, but he's a 30 year old 4th liner having a career year. Take what you can get and run. With the addition of the young players I think it's must to have a 4th line guy like Foligno. A ...

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

Will they ever give Mayhew a chance? He needs to play up in the lineup, not just 5 minutes on the 4th line if the bring him up. Also, by no means do I think he is the answer, but worth a shot. https://twitter.com/RussoHockey/status/1228523471560294400 Mayhew and Kahkonen being called up would be th...

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

Dubnyk is still around because Fletcher took a chance on a long term deal. He failed. Stalock is still around because he is buddies with Boudreau. Have to believe that this is a large part of Boudreau getting booted. Suter and his contract are the farthest thing from the problem on this squad. Suter...
