Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

It's like Matt Millen drafting wide receivers in the first round, then you fire Matt Millen and the next guy also drafts a wide receiver in the first round in his first draft.

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

Now a goalie. And SURPRISE he’s 6’5” 👌😂 Damn, not a 3rd LF (Khan drafted 3 PG in a row) as I recall. Well, as long as Cole Caufield doesn’t turn out to be the hockey version of Steph Curry, it’s all Good 👍 And traded away two picks to move up and get him. I thought we weren't trading picks away any...

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

Connor Dewar is looking like a good draft pick thus far. Been lighting up the WHL. Sounds like he signed recently too, like in April. https://www.capfriendly.com/players/connor-dewar All three of the Wild's 3rd round picks carry some intrigue right now. They are certainly showing that they deserve ...

I'm beginning to understand why Cheveldayoff avoided making trades for so long. :crazy:

This is very good news for the Central Division.

Re: 2019-20 Wild

I don’t know. Fenton has made some questionable moves this far so I wouldn’t call BS on Scooby right now. Regardless of the source, the smoke is billowing. You honestly think a guy that has been an assistant GM for 20 years would actually turn down additional assets in a trade? Fenton has given the...

Re: 2019-20 Wild

I think the main point here is that this isn't an attractive organization to join at this time. Fenton looks overmatched and the fanbase is watching teams that retooled already lapping the Wild again. It's ok to be SuperFan #1, no issues there, but it leaves little in the way of credibility.

Re: 2019-20 Wild

First of all stop giving players away. Second, when you make a lopsided trade make sure they throw in a pick. Third, ultimately you're going to have to keep missing the playoffs and hope you get lucky for once and get to draft a generational talent. No, I'm not suggesting they tank. They have to fi...

Re: 2019-20 Wild

Listening to Russo on Bump on the way home I wouldn't get my hopes up for Phil Kessel or anyone else for that matter. Phil did his study on the Wild and this place is not a destination. And the reports from Nino and Coyle after leaving here are not good. Immaterial compared to the reports on Iowa.

Contracts and mileage say the Wild have to rebuild or retool to win now. Kessel is an acceptable risk to me.
