What’s ailing the Wild?


Let’s get one thing straight, right off the bat. The Wild are struggling, not regressing. With three of their top six forwards on the shelf, and their only other potential top-six player in the AHL (Casey Wellman) also out, the Wild just don’t have the offensive pop that they need and it’s showing. Minnesota... 

Koivu out; Should the Wild consider trading for a forward?


For those naysayers who have been waiting for the rails to come off of the Wild’s seemingly unstoppable train over the last few weeks, you might want to watch this coming stretch of games leading into Christmas – this could well be when it happens. With the news that Mikko Koivu is now “day-to-day,”... 

‘Hawks down Wild in shootout


First of all, watch this shootout goal from Patrick Kane and not say, “Are you effing serious?” I dare you. It’s impossible. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I didn’t do a write up on the game last night because I was too busy watching 24/7. Like, watched it three times too busy. Would... 

Gameday Thread: Wild look to rebound against Blackhawks


I know I tweeted no gameday thread but, I had a little time, so I thought I’d throw together a brief one for you. Now, I’m not going to talk at length here before getting down to the nitty gritty, but I do want to address Zach Bogosian’s hit on Pierre-Marc Bouchard quickly before we get to the... 

Gameday Thread: Wild look to slow down Jets


If this keeps up this way, the Wild are going to get a serious Rodney Dangerfield complex, because they just can’t get no respect Ask any talking head or stat junkie and they’ll tell you that the Wild are one of the worst teams in the league – that is, if they recognize that they’re even part...

The Wild are going to have a big test on their plate tonight, as Casey Wellman is going to return to his old stomping grounds for the first time with the Wild and he’s been on quite a roll.

NHL approves new, radical realignment


As has been reported, the NHL has approved a four-conference realignment plan and, tentatively, a new playoff plan for the upcoming season. The basics are that every team will play a home-and-home against one another (so, that means that Wild fans will get to see Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby and so on... 

Wild steal win from Devils


If you were to ask me how the Wild keep winning, I honestly couldn’t tell you. The Wild played a pretty poor game on Friday night, but still managed to sneak out a 4-2 win over a New Jersey Devils team that has been struggling of late, but is still a very good team. Friday night, the Wild showed their... 

Gameday Thread: Wild look to keep it going against Devils


The Wild are off to their best start in franchise history, and there’s one big reason why. Mike Yeo. As was mentioned on Sports Illustrated’s Red Light Blog, the Wild’s biggest asset this season has been their system – when they stick to it, it works. But just as big as that has been the guy... 

The Wild have bought in and you should too


If you’ll forgive me for a moment, I’d like to indulge in writing something that I never in a million years thought I’d be writing this season. Before any games are played, on December 1, 2011, the Minnesota Wild are atop the NHL. Let me let that sink in for a moment. The Wild are the top team...
