Kadri said, "I'm a pretty honest player," while lying through his teeth. Of course it was intentional. We all saw the replay.

Maybe running into Backstrom in the first place was unintentional But what happened when they collided had to be intentional- dirty play. Glad to see Madden get an opportunity with the Panthers- a first class kinda guy by all accounts. If Backstrom is out long term I wouldn't mind the Wild taking a look at Theodore.

Sign Theodore!!! Get him back! NEver should've let him go in the first place. Harding and Theodore would make a great set of GT's!

I can't believe that a guy can jump up (at Granny's head) and drive a player's head into the glass is called a clean hit. Sure he didn't have elbows flying, but the overall play had an intent to injure look to it. Very weak decision Shannahan. I am just glad that Granlund is playing.

If Dumba can play 10 games and potentially more, then I'd think Kemps and Gussy should be ready for a handful or more apiece and do as well as a over-the-hill AHL'er or guys that are not even playing. I mean I'm a Jose fan, but c'mon. Besides, Wild might not have found out as much as fast as to what Granlund is apparently capable of if Coyle hadn't gone done for awhile, so if you're holding a lucky horseshoe ya might as well use it. The kids are worth a look and judging by how upset Kemps was on the bench in Toronto, I'd say he's on a mission. Give 'im a shot. Get well soon 32

The hit on Granlund was almost MORE obvious than the one on Backs. It's pretty sad when a player is injured by an illegal hit and all the culprit gets is a 3 game suspension. He should be thrown out of the league!!!!!!

hey brandle chamblee and you other critics get off tiger and kadri's and shanahan's backs as all three are "pretty honest" guys!!

DiPietro here would be HORRIBLE!! The guy cant win, don't see how that would change here. Jose....eh....could be good.

Jose would be a good addition. Go get him. And good luck Backstrom. Get well.

As long as he's cool with being a back up, Jose is a no-brainer on this one. Bring him in. Good guy, and he'll add nice depth.
