Mister Zooker has speed, Nashville is well coached. The Wild is most dangerous on the power play, 5 on 5 not at all...... Zookers speed creates penalties.... common sense really, check the Wilds first line as the home team has the last line change and play your best offensive skilled line against the second, Grandlund at center equals minus 2 when playing an away game

He definitely matches up well against the next few teams the wild play. His defense is gonna be the x factor though

"It’s a lot more fun than not finding (the net), but overall I’ve been playing better and if you play better, you get more chances, I don’t know why it was so difficult to get back to feeling normal again." Wise words from Anti Meittenin. Take your time Coyle! Be patient!

Even a rookie can admit he can but be better while that's something our captain would never admit despite playing poorly.

I think we're going to miss Cullen this year.

Did you know, country, that Koivu was on for all 3 of our goals. Assisted on one and basically won the draw on Pom's goal (no assist because the Duck player tried to clear but it was from the faceoff scrum created by MK). He wasn't on the ice for any of the Duck's goals. He won 64% of his faceoffs. He has the best faceoff % in the league for guys with 50+ attempts. But, since you hate Koivu, he's been terrible...Hmm, nice assessment.

Move Heatley to the 3rd, Nino to the 2nd. I'd rather have a bad game from Nino who is trying to impress with actual effort to make something happen, than a bad game from Heatley as he loafs around the ice waiting for someone to feed him the puck (in hopes that he doesn't fall..)

I've never been a Heatley basher and have always wanted good things for the guy but watching him the first few games has been painful. He is such a terrible skater that I am amazed he has had as much success as he has. It looks like it hurts when he skates, even Bruno was better. When he gets the puck in the D zone I wonder what he's going to do because skating it out isn't an option. Good luck to him though.

Patience folks patience but WOULD like to see a win tonight to keep the Wild moving forward in the standings.

Mikko makes a nice pass to Zach for a goal and then couldn't stand our good start......so he takes a stupid, lazy penalty in our offensive zone to put us two men down. Nice one, Mikko.
