Dubnyk is pretty stellar.  Defensive player has been very good.  Holy cow, we can actually put the puck in the net.

 

I hold my optimism close, history as a minnesota fan can be painful.

 

That being said, I am enjoying the season thus far

Wow, the Wild are in 1st place with 3 games in hand as well.

 

Who do you think are the guys that are getting it done?

 zucker- 2nd in goals, real threat to score every time he's on the ice. 

stall-#1 center we've needed badly for years is playing out of his mind. Leads team in goals and game winning goals. Don't think anyone would have guessed he'd be playing this well. (And for cheap) 

Koivu-old #1 center is playing in a spot he should be in and its helping tremendously. He's a beast on face offs, playing good defense and it seems to be helping him insert jauques Lemaire voice here "score some goals" 

Bruce-crossing the fingers he doesn't take us to any game 7's but the way the team looks this year compared to last I think the players are listening/respect him more so than yeo and it's showing. (Not losing back to backs, coming back from behind , scoring goals when needed and playing really good d)

oh yea and duuuuuub, although he's kinda fallen off the last few games I really like our chances with him in net. He's good enough to steal a couple and that helps out with hopefully a nice long playoff run. (Hopefully) 

Go Wild!

Wow, thank you for your insight.

 

Do you 'have a point of view' to share?

I heard it said that the Wild are in the midst of their midseason slump.  The difference this year is that are still winning during the slump.

Not sure if this is a sarcastic question to my long rambling but unfortunately I haven't been able to watch many games this year due to not having tv. I listen to almost every game via the fan. As a hockey rube all my existence I just like what this team is compromised of vs old teams. So far it feels similar to 03' where we didn't have that one go to guy (maybe gaborik) but rather 3-4 good lines that knew what there job was. Good coaching, the defense was solid and goaltending although we had two guys back then was a strength. With that being said if dubnyk gets hurt watch out because keumper isn't bringing us anywhere.

 

And while I'm commenting, do I think if the wild will win it all this year?  If they can get past the Blackhawks then anything can happen. Obviously a lot of things have to go right and it's not even February but I like what's happening so far this year.

They certainly have a chance.  Too many years of being a Viking fan have left me conditioned not to be too optimistic.

I'm with "Hardcore" on this one. . . if DUUUUUUUUUUBS goes down, so do the Wild. It's early but we have never looked this good for such a long period of time. Avoid the Hawks in the first round and I like our chances if the team is healthy. . . .

 

And I'm also with BringAnExtension on his last point. . . . Wide left is all I need to say. . . .

@hardcore365, No, not sarcastic at all. The second sentence was meant for anyone viewing the post. It does look like it could be sarcastic tho.... LOL

 

Any predictions for the next game?

I figured it wasn't, but was just reading it thinking it might be. Dang computers need a tone feature of some sort... It's 3-1 now at the end of the second. I think they will close with two more in the third, one empty net, win 5-2. 

Go wild!

5-1 I'd say that was a good call. Now into the All-star break with the best record they have ever had. Man this is fun.

Let's just all hope the All-Star break doesn't have the same effect as a bye-week in football!!!

Well so far so good! 4-2 Wild going into the second intermission. Goals by Zucker, Parise, and two by something called a Graovac. Edmonton went into the break playing pretty good hockey so this would be a nice start to the Canada trip if they can get the first one. Go Wild!

Nice game last night.  Both teams were buzzing the first 2 periods.

Our goalie was once again better, great game by Keumper.

This team just keeps rolling, i am not used to this kind of success.  I sure hope this can continue into June.
