Stoner finally in the press box, where he belongs. Again, a wasted contract year for Dumba.....should have been moved before 10 game mark.

Ticket prices are way too high for the average fan....need reductions, not increases.

I watched the World Juniors and Dumba struggled mightily. After reading the Canadian message boards, for whatever that's worth, their fans were definitely down on him and not sold on his upside potential. He's only 19 so not gonna give up on him yet, but from what I've seen so far I'm not expecting Dumba to become a top-4 D-man. I just hope he doesn't go the way of A.J. Thelen...

Spurgeon is shorter than Johnson. Did Johnson get away, or is it because he plays in the East? Spurgeon had a decent game but it was against an Eastern team. Last I checked, the West is known for size and skill. The Wild will always be at a disadvantage in the West until they get bigger on the back-end.

Fans in Canada were down on Dumba because THEY LOST and needed someone to blame. I watched most of Canada's games and Dumba played very solid the entire tournament in spite of the fact he played several games with the effects from the flu.

mgala, where's the rip on Parise bro!?!? Why would you knock Spurgeon for having a decent game too? He just got back from being out for a long time and his minutes immediately increased when Pizza was hurt a minute into the game. He's wearing new protection that he needs to get used to and he has two assists including the game winner assist. What are you looking for guy? Apparently we need a team of Sidney Crosby's to satisfy your bloodlust. Just go root for Pittsburgh if you like that 12MM man more. Also, the West is known for size and skill? So the east is known for petite players and being unskilled? What's is your dilly bro?!?!?!?!? Also, it sounds like Johnson CHOSE to go to Tampa Bay so it's not like the Wild didn't try to sign him, jeez guy, pull your head out of your bum already, your giving me a headache with these posts, it's unbelievable the inanity of them!!
