After watching Koivu poke checking a guy instead of taking the body to separate the man from the puck, I thought I would look at how many hits he has for the season. 7 hits is ridiculous for a guy his size.

One of the best defensive centers in the game, and has been for over a decade.

Indeed he is. I read the same takes with Parayko. Some Blues fans want him to crush people, not realizing or understanding how much more effective he is playing the way he does. I'd take Koivu for the Blues in a heartbeat.

I’m not saying he’s not a great defensive player, or is the problem, or has to crush anybody. But when He has an angle on a guy in the neutral zone he will try to poke check the guy nine times out of ten. To me a good clean body check separates the guy from the puck.

When the playoffs start and the intensity ratchets up. It’s the same Mikko poke checking.

He’s is +\- 0 right now. Which is amazing considering he plays against other teams best every night, our goaltending is atrocious and the very rough start the team has gotten off to.

Erickson-Ek’s line has also been playing against the other team’s top lines as well. Hey I’m not saying he’s not a good player, just pointing out something out. I think it would help the team to see the Captain hit someone now and then.

The thing with Mikko is he’s a very effective 3rd line center and a great shut down defender against the other teams top center. But at this stage, especially on a high end team (which granted the Wild isn’t) he’s no higher than a 3rd line center, period. And the Wild need to give younger guys the opportunity to play top 2 line C minutes, especially with how old Staal is, to establish themselves going forward, or find out they can’t do it effectively. An example is Erik Ek.

I'd love to know why Boobnyk threw the lead away. Again. No reason for that moronic play.

Boobnyk has to be the player hurting his team the most for any position in the league.

He literally has had to do nothing tonight and still messed it up.

Dubnyk the great equalizer.
Great analysis by Greenlay on the goal. :roll:
I like his 1st period analysis about Doobs play of late. Sounds like he was describing the walrus in the Geico commercial,

Boldy will be just fine. The past two years he played wing for the NDTP, now as an 18 year old true freshman he is playing center against older and stronger players. Let him grow into the center role and get stronger and he will be a very good player for BC and the Wild. He is a big kid who hit a huge growth spurt in the past eighteen months, skates well and shoots well. Little hard to call a kid a bust nine games into his freshman season.

Boldly may be just fine. Cole Caufield on the other hand has 8 goals and 4 assists as a freshman and is doing what he did in Ann Arbor at the next level. Score goals.

Goal scoring is never considered when the Wild drafts players.

Is there a date by which, if we don't sign him we lose his rights, like some college and major junior players? Or does that not apply to KHL players because there is no "transfer agreement" or something like that...

As far as I know the ONLY way he gets to the NHL is through the Minnesota Wild (either by signing with them and playing on their team, or having his rights traded by them to someone else). He has no other path.

I read Russo’s interview with Guerin and it was the same old blow some sunshine up our arse as always from the Wild.
Only 1 paragraph was of interest. The one about the Russian kid.
Not once was the glaring weakness at goaltender addressed. Let’s hope Robeson or the Finn get a look before the end of the year.

I don't put a lot of stock in any of that stuff... What is he supposed to say? "This group is the suckiest group of suckers that ever sucked!"?

The brand new GM publicly calling out players isn't going to go over well in the locker room, nor is it going to improve anyone's trade value, nor is it going to impress potential trade targets and make them want to play here.

What is said to the media and what is said behind closed doors are 2 different things, sometimes similar, sometimes completely different. Maybe he is trying to shop Dubnyk, if he comes out and says, Boy he just isn't playing well, GMs will lower what they are willing to offer as they know he doesn't have a very high opinion of him. Not that other GMs cannot figure that out by looking at stats and records, watching games, and talking to scouts and other people... But there is no reason to make it public.

As much as Russo hated Fenton for not talking to him, the GMs that do talk is generally just lip service. How many times, in all sports, has a GM said "In no way is he being traded" and within the week that player is gone? Not everyday, but more than once a season. Sometimes that player isn't being traded, sometimes he's being shopped like crazy.

I wouldn't worry about it too much.

They have (4) quality prospects at the goalie position. Try to say that about any other position.

No the Wild can’t lose his rights.

He is playing for the Wild if he plays in the NHL. Unless the Wild trade him.

No in looks foolish making that comment. Especially given that it was just reported that Guerin is headed over there to meet with Kaprizov and his agent. And his agent recently said that he plans on coming over next season.

Also what is said to the media for publication and what is said to the media off the record for context is sometimes completely different.

I get the sense Guerin is making sure to keep his media horde close and not just giving them complete lip service.

Unfortunately I don’t think it is a slump. This has always been part of his game, now that he is slowing down it will be more often part of it.

While he probably won’t play this poorly every stretch of the season the days of Dooobie stealing the show for a 10 game spurt are probably long gone.

If he could play just south of mediocre that would probably be a good thing.

He is bad.

It could be worse, your owner could be convinced the Wild are a contender and not take the obvious step of ordering an overhaul of this decrepit roster.

Wouldn't matter if he was good. The entire team is bad.
It could be worse, your owner could be convinced the Wild are a contender and not take the obvious step of ordering an overhaul of this decrepit roster.
He did allow the trading of Nino, Granlund and Coyle. That’s a pretty good overhaul in a short period of time. But who really knows what his thoughts/intentions were on those moves and what it would do to the organization.

Who knows, someone said it earlier, maybe J22, if Dubnyk is going to play like this most the year they will be drafting up there.

Maybe you insert a very talented 18 year old and Kaprizov into your organization next off season.

Could be a blessing in disguise.

The idea is to move the old players that you might be able to trade. Those moves were moving out like for slightly younger like. It’s fine to defend your team, but I’m watching a $hitshow of an operation right now. It’s sad for the great fans.

Coyle, Granlund and Spurgeon would all be playing in the last year of their contract right now. Playing with fire with that many players at that age, walking into UFA.

You have a point you can definitely look into older players. But we all know Parise and Suter are not getting traded. Koivu was hurt.

And Staal, maybe Leipold would have been fine trading him but Fenton didn’t do that.

My post wasn’t about being for or against the moves that took place. It was replying to your comment about the owner being open to change and thinking he has or had a contender.

That’s another topic.

The topic brought up was Leipold won’t let change happen because he thinks they are a Cup Contender. Those moves would contradict that idea.

On a side note Granlund has been awful his entire time in Nashville, last regular season, playoffs and now this year.

Fiala is out performing him, with less games, playing with Parise and Koivu and is somehow a 0 +\- which is a small miracle with the way this team leaks goals. And he isn’t due a big contract.

Nice one timer. How about giving the younger guys some power play time? Might help there confidence. Last two power plays were brutal.

Nice form Dubnyk. Most shots he is on his knee’s, going down to his knees, or on his knees and falling on his face. I don’t know what that one was.

Hahaha Boobnyk. Another sit back and have to do very little game for him and .700 %. I would say a lot of the problem will be solved when he isn’t the starter next season.

Good point. Not only is he playing awful but it seems like on every goal he is doing something awkward physically.

I have never seen an NHL goalie with worse balance and/or coordination. Dubnyk just flat out tips over at least twice a game.

That might have went of Spurgeon’s stick. Again Dubnyk on his knees and had no chance to make the save.
