So, What Now? Potential Wild Line Pairings


So, now that the Wild have landed the “big fish,” (not to mention a couple other parts), it stands to reason that they’re probably going to be pretty quiet for the rest of the off season (barring trades, but we won’t speculate on that). What we will speculate on, however, is how the Wild will... 

Christmas in July, Wild sign Parise and Suter


The Wild have just signed Zach Parise and Ryan Suter to matching 13-year, $98 million contracts. Let’s let that soak in, for just a moment. The Wild, who for the past few seasons have been stuck in the rut of the Doug Risebrough era, have finally arrived as the big-time contender that Chuck Fletcher... 

In Which Free Agency Frenzy Begins


Christmas in July is officially upon us. The Wild are expected to be unbelievably busy this off season, going for their home run (Parise and/or Suter) and also filling out their depth. Some deals have already gone down, which I’ll talk about in a bit, but I want to first address something that happened... 

Welcome Back


So, admittedly, it’s been a while since I did this, so forgive me while I brush off the rust here. After taking quite a long hiatus, Wild Nation is back and hopefully, soon to be, better than ever. While I enjoyed (and still do enjoy) what I am doing at all of the other outlets I write for (Stadium... 

A change is coming


This post isn’t going to be easy to write. I figured that out as I struggled to start it, erasing at least four different opening sentences before just deciding on one – honesty. For the last few years, I’ve poured my heart, soul and effort into Wild Nation and it has brought me many great opportunities.... 

Wild win second straight


What a sight Tuesday night was for the Wild. Just a few days after the Wild put forth a great effort against the Dallas Stars, they went out and did it again on Tuesday against the Colorado Avalanche. It was exactly what the Wild were waiting for. A follow up performance to a solid game, and it was one... 

Tim Thomas and the White House


Let me get one thing out of the way here really quick. On a whole, my political views tend to be left of center. I pride myself on being more pragmatic than subscribing to any one ideology, but for the most part, I find myself falling on the left side of the tracks, so to speak. Tim Thomas does not. On... 

Wild rebound with strong win over Stars


It’s going to be a short one tonight because, frankly, it’s late and I’m tired. The Wild responded against the Dallas Stars and responded in a big way. They fell behind in the first period, after being outshot 11-5 (but not being outplayed) when Eric Nystrom repaid the Wild’s “betrayal” by... 

UPDATED: Wild demote two, recall four


You know that something that I keep saying has to give? Well, the Wild have sent down Casey Wellman and David McIntyre to the AHL, per Kent Youngblood via Twitter. So, basically, something’s changing whether it’s someone coming in from the outside or someone coming up from Houston and, while someone... 

The ball keeps rolling down hill; Wild lose to Leafs


Honestly, I don’t know what more to say than what has already been said by every other person covering the Wild out there. For the first time this season, I truly feel like the Wild have nothing good that they can take away from last night’s loss to the Maple Leafs. In other games, they struggled...
