Wild Starting Strong (like last year), can they keep it up?

12 posts in this topic

The math doesn't lie, the Wild is on pace to go 82-0.

Last year the started strong and then got hit by injuries. Can they do better this year?

Any predictions for the year? I still think they are 5-8 seed.

If they can stay healthy, and the goaltending remains strong, Like I think it will, they will have a good season!

This is the year! I'm predicting a Stanley Cup for the Wild now that they have some maturity. You're witnessing the beginning of an era as we speak! wink.gif

I agree with you, Tonka Boy. We've been building a team for years and now it is go time. The acquisitions that were made the last couple of years have put us up there with the other contenders. And like any team in the NHL, staying healthy determines your season's fate.

I agree 100%, this team is fun to watch! I read an article that Demitra wants out, that would be a blow for the wild

[in robotic monotone voice] I think Backstrom's save percentage will remain at 98%. I think his goals against average will lead the league. Demitra, Gaborik and Walls are the best first line in the league. I really believe this team can go 82-0. Jacques Lemaire is brilliant. Doug Risebrough's moves have been genius. I think the Wild will win 3 Stanley Cups in a row. The only thing that can stop them is injury or getting complacent.

Well, they are the last undefeated team in the NHL. I would like to see how they react once they get their first losing streak or if Backstrom struggles between the pipes. I said before that they would be a 5 seed and I am sticking to it. Don't get me wrong I hope they finish #1 but I still say 5. They are 5-0 and Gabby hasn't gotten hot yet. Go Wild!!

The team seams to come and go with gabby. If he is hurt like last year, we will struggle. If he is healthy for the whole year(yeah right) then look out. We will be very tough.

But it comes down to scoring in the playoffs, we struggle every year.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.
