bryology...they're professionals that's like your boss telling you "quite working dummy" give me a break...losing on purpose is well for losers... they'll still get a high draft pick take it easy...

wildforlife..what's pointless about it? they won and showed life...they'll still get their pick...one guy unless he's Sid the Kid, the great Gretsky, Super Mario or Erik Lindross isn't gonna do it for the Wild...they need more than that...

They were lucky to survive the first 2 periods. I thought I was watching the Gophers playing a high school team. Nice to see them finally show some life in the 3rd.

I was at this contest last night (tickle me) and I thought the same way about this contest. The Koivou line was pathetic, that line got double shifted and it really was painful to watch (tickle me) Second period I am said Boy you know what, how can any GM get rid of that Boogymonster, you got to be kidding me, nuff said....... the effort of the Koivou line was just absolutely horrible, Mister know it all was planted in back of the Florida bench a few rows back and he impressed his kid by saying that Fleisheramn was going to score when Florida had a 4 on 3, I thought all he needed was a little extra ice and MKIA was right, spot on

It's good to see Mikko doing well in his conditioning and tryout for Finland's worlds team. Unfortunately the more they win at this point the further they get from drafting high end talent.

@icantimagine...getting rid of Boogard didn't hurt this team as much as not going out and spending money on goal scorers...you guys are preoccupied with "goons" and it's getting real old...skill...hockey is a skill sport...its' not wrestling..
