Re: MN Wild 2021-22 season

A buddy of mine is a huge Wild fan who bet me $20 that the Wild will make the playoffs AND win a series. I gave him 3-1 odds. Who's the idiot, him or me? The making the playoffs part is a complete toss-up imo. Outside of Colorado and Arizona, I see all the other central teams as just as likely to m...

Re: Wild 2020-2021 Season

What can you say? Good teams raise the wick in the playoffs. The Wild wilts. Fleury again the better goalie and Wild lost the battle in the neutral zone. Yes, Dumba was caught flat footed on the Tuch goal, but the puck was turned over in the neutral zone and Tuch just had speed going. If you want t...

Re: Wild 2020-2021 Season

I’m not at all knowledgeable of the Wild’s roster nor particular player skill sets, but if Rau isn’t an ideal replacement for an injured Bjugstad, then who is? (Not necessarily directed at anyone specific, but several here seem to be more knowledgeable than the Wild coaching staff), so I’m curious ...

I suppose this one is Talbot's fault too?




Yeah, Talbot was great tonight.

Re: Wild 2020-2021 Season

Given this, Parise must have really done or said something to make this personal. That's the only thing I can think of. Something happened behind the scenes. AND/OR Guerin is creating a situation where Parise either asks to be traded or a minimum asks to waive his NMC for expansion draft purposes. ...

Re: MLB News

In the Twins Thread I mentioned a discussion with a friend about Tony LaRussa and we got to talking about manager ejections . How many of the 10 managers do you think you can name that have the most all time ejections? For reference LaRussa is #5 on the list I know Bobby Cox is #1. Pretty sure that...

Re: Wild 2020-2021 Season

The Wild are pretty clearly the better team. Fleury played well again. Talbot didn't.

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014 - ∞: To Infinity & Beyond!

The "unwritten rule" about swinging 3-0 with a 15 run lead is canceled out by the "unwritten rule" that says if you're down by 15, throw f*** strikes.

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

I was hearing on Kfan this am that Parise is not suiting up for todays Wild game They definitely need to find a way to move him to another team in the off-season, at this point I’m pretty sure Zach will waive his no trade clause. And Zach has some leverage too, because if he just up & retires & doe...

Re: Wild 2020-2021 Season

Unfortunately we all knew this day would come. The sad part is that the Wild could not capitalize on Parise during his prime years. Also, they did not move him in the last couple of years when he still had value to a team that he would want to go to or was willing to pay the price. Now, he has no v...

Re: Wild 2020-2021 Season

I honestly can't find a scenario that they get past Colorado, unless Talbot flat out steals games. Colorado's forwards are just a superb combination of skill, speed and strength. In my view, the Wild's undersized D don't match up well. The above analysis is glaring in that Parise is a mere aftertho...
