Short-Term Excitement For Long-Term Mediocrity?

296

Sign Thomas Vanek in the summer? Think about that. I mean really, really think about it.

Dead Cat Bouncing

The Wild haven't been playing great despite winning five of seven. They really haven't. But in case you're wondering, this is exactly the way they need to be playing right now.

Time To Shine

7

The Wild seem to be in a terribly, horribly, awful situation. Everybody's injured and all is lost. Well, not all. Not if those two kids start to play like we all know they're capable of.

Oh Kaptain, My Kaptain

5

The Wild are 12-2-2 in their last 15 games, and Mikko Koivu is beasting. That is all.

Secondary Awesomeness

6

Remember that one time the Wild were a team of one competent line that you could, on some level, expect to score every night? That one time that's also called "forever and ever and ever"? Yeah, me...

Dumba55 Needs To Stay

22

Will he be the next James Sheppard? Or the next Colton Gillies? Or, just simply put, the awesome, the amazing, next Matt Dumba?

Free Jonas Brodin

53

After a season of making Ryan Suter look like a Norris candidate, Jonas Brodin needs to do this own thing. And that, my friends, can't happen with Suter.

We Need To Talk About Mike (And Chuck)

12

Mike Yeo has been a topic of rumours for the past few days. Will he get fired? Is he even close to being fired? Is he really the guy we want to blame for the Wild's current situation?

Mikael Granlund - What's Next For The Kid?

At what point does "potential" become an irrelevant term when evaluating a player?

Haastattelussa: Keith Ballard

4

Yksi Minnesota Wildin uusimmista hankinnoista istui alas Hockey Wildernessin Emilien kanssa. Mitä Ballardilla oli sanottavanaan, siitä lisää alempana.

The Wild Need...David Steckel?

9

A competitive 4th line is a luxury. A luxury you need in order to be a succesful team in the National Hockey League. Ask a bunch of Bruins fans, they'll tell you. If the Wild want one...Well, Dave...

Wild Training Camp: Taking A Look At The Defence

10

Defense? We're talking about defense!? Yes, shut up you misquoted superstar of another major sport, we're talking about defense.

The Kids Are All Right

Wanna talk about a few of the young guys? Let's talk about a few of the young guys.

Depth Charting The D

18

The Wild have made a few acquisitons at the back during the last few seasons. Some through draft, some through free agency and some via trade. What's the situation on the blue line now?

Will Koivu Ever Be Enough?

20

Once upon a time, Koivu was the answer to so many questions. Now, he's the source of those questions. Will the Wild ever get anywhere with Koivu?

Go-To Hockey Stories - A.J. Thelen

We all got a favorite hockey story or two. The kind of stories you throw out once in a while when you talk about hockey with people outside of your usual social circle (because trust me, they've...

And The 2nd Line Center Is....

8

Mikael Granlund had a disappointing first season in North America. And I think I'm being kind when I say that. But now, the Wild are in a position where they need Granlund to center the 2nd line....

The Song Remains The Same

32

A promising group of prospects, some high-end talent up front and a few additions around the line-up. Where are the Wild going?

Respect Thy Scouting Department

This was supposed to be a tribute to scouts, but then something happened and this came out. I'll get back to this topic with much more detail. I promise.

Fans Say The Darndest Things

Hello, this is the second part of the (as of now) ongoing series of funny/stupid things that fans blame stuff on. You might disagree, but that's what the "comments" sections is for. Fire away.

The [expletive] refs, and other stupid things fans

"Gosh darn it, the refs blew it again". Thank you, fans all over the world, for giving me stuff to rant about. When you get emotional, you get funny. Fast. This might become a trending topic for a...

Saving Money

Hello, boys and girls. This will be a regular spot for my articles and random thoughts about the Wild and hockey in general. Up first, some goalie talk.

Ennakko: Minnesota Wild @ Vancouver Canucks, Ottel

Thanks to Emilie for the previous one. My kitchen is still a mess but I got this one. Ja hyvää iltaa. Kolmen voiton putki? Maistuisi.

Juuso's first article for HW (in Finnish), posted by Emilie because of a kitchen sink. No, seriously.
