Re: 2019-20 Wild

The Vanek signing filled the same need. How'd that turn out? And this is years later with Suter, Parise, and Koivu, you're core, much older. It didnt work...but by that ridiculous logic we should never sign a scorer because one time it didnt work. Sports fans have zero logic about this stuff... It ...

Re: 2019-20 Wild

Jeezuz some of you go to bat for this franchise as if your life depends upon it. Not me...I just think Russo is overrated. ;) I think the Wild are a friggin mess and have very little interest in them. They will go nowhere as long as they rely on Parise and Suter to play significant minutes. The Phi...

Re: NCAA hockey 2019-20 season

Yeah and he has proven himself 10 times over in college. Plus NHL coaches get fired and rehired so fast anyways he will never be without a job.

Re: 2019-20 Wild

You know what I meant...dont get pedantic. There is a difference between covering the team and being someone like Reusse or Barriero back in the day. That is what I am talking about. His fans may not want him to write that way but sometimes it seems that is what he would prefer. I dont dislike him, ...

Re: 2019-20 Wild

I have no idea if Fenton is any good though I am hardly impressed ...but the love affair fans have with Russo is kind of funny and I have said that for years. (back when he defended everything they did as opposed to now) Half the time it seems the guy is angling for a future career as a columnist or...

Re: 2019-20 Wild

Charlie Coyle has 7 goals and 6 assists this offseason. I suppose it's his fault the Wild didn't get what they needed out of him. It is no ones fault. Charlie isn't a Marchand, Pastrnak, Bergeron, Krecji, he is a roll player and that is why he is fitting in so well they have the big horses. The Wil...

Hey people loved Mauer and he was no different.
Mauer was no different than who?
Than the players Scooby is now talking about weighing down the team. (Parise, Suter and Koivu)

Re: Gopher Basketball 2014-2019: The Quest for the Quint

It isnt short sighted, it might end up being the wrong decision but only he will know that. The only way it might be short sighted is if he is doing it for money because most likely, barring a massive knee injury, the money would be the same next year as this year. I mean before the end of the seaso...

Re: Gopher Basketball 2014-2019: The Quest for the Quint

Moneywise? Uh because he can finish his degree and make more at a real job than he can in the G-League? I feel like you are assuming I am saying something I am not. There is nothing wrong with going to the G League, but you dont do it to get paid because the pay is nothing. I mean it is low end AHL ...

I am not saying dont go G-League I am just saying if he is doing it "to get paid" he got bad advice. It will be at least a year before he improves his game enough to get noticed. He has lots of deficiencies.

Re: Gopher Basketball 2014-2019: The Quest for the Quint

Sounds like there wasn't a lot of belief another year in college would elevate his game enough to matter from a draft/NBA perspective. So, rather than wait a year for not much gain, Amir decided to go now and get paid what he can get paid. Another year older to play in the G league or wherever wasn...

Re: Gopher Basketball 2014-2019: The Quest for the Quint

Definitely puzzling, I heard he is close to graduating already. At least he stayed in Minnesota to play college hoops... pretty sure they don't make the tournament last year without him. Yeah he has less than a semester's worth of credits to graduate IIRC. I mean I guess it is possible the Kings to...

Re: Gopher Basketball 2014-2019: The Quest for the Quint

He isnt an NBA player...he doesnt have the game for it. He might get a cup of (no pun intended) coffee or something but he is a Euro Player like many Gophers before him. I wish him luck. He can still finish his degree and I am sure his dad will encourage him to. Not the decision I would have made bu...
