Interesting
Kunin and Ek sent to Iowa while everyone else goes on Break.
Only one will return, as Fehr will be ready next week.
JT Brown seems to have settled permanently into the press box/fill-in role.

Jeff will love this one ...
This weeks power rankings. (featuring every teams all time All-Star highlights)



15. Minnesota Wild

Previous ranking: 17

Marian Gaborik wins fastest skater in 2003. Once called a "Maserati on the Autobahn" by Sports Illustrated, the Wild winger won the speedskating event at the All-Star Game in Sunrise, Florida. He later won All-Star Game MVP in 2012 as a member of the Rangers. Honorable mention: defenseman Filip Kuba getting the only All-Star Game selection of his career (333 points in 836 games) because the Wild hosted the 2004 event.




I still remember my reaction when he was our 'all-star'. Had the same one very recently. W----T-----F?

Doooooobs has actually proven in recent performances that he wasn't a terrible choice for the All-star game.

Is it an expansion extension? 3 years instead of 2 for expansion protection?

This is all I got Phil

Wild backup goalie Alex Stalock will get a three-year contract extension.

Stalock agreed to a $2.355 million deal that will pay $905,000 in 2019-20, $700,000 in 2020-21 and $750,000 in 2021-22 for an average annual value of $785,000. The one-way deal means he will be paid the same whether in the NHL or minor leagues. He makes $650,000 this season.
The 31-year-old has a 2.92 goals-against average and .894 save percentage this season in 14 games as a backup to All-Star Devan Dubnyk. Dubnyk’s six-year, $26 million contract runs through 2020-21. The length of Stalock’s contract will allow him to be exposed when Seattle has its expansion draft in 2021 with the same rules under which Vegas entered the NHL in 2017.
Stalock is in his third season with the Wild. In 44 games (35 starts) he is 17-16-4 with a 2.80 goals against average.
The South St. Paul native and former Minnesota Duluth All-America was a fourth-round selection by San Jose (112th overall) in 2005 and played in 62 games for the Sharks before joining the Wild as a free agent.

NO! There is a big difference between the Stars and the North Stars.
The front end of a back to back, make sure you cheer them on to a win to kick things off.....and have a great time too!

There are some very good smokehouses in the general area for you to try out, if you enjoy various smoked meats as much as I do!

This gets UNREAL at points.
And yes, I'm bitching about schedules again

I've been enjoying NHL games the past 3 nights ... more tonight ..... before our local boys even touch the ice.
BETTMANN you are a full blown moron.
I don't care what that article said last week I posted .... you are a moron. The inconsistency would ruin a lesser league.
This league prevails DESPITE being run by dolts.
In NHL arenas. the NHL teams are the SHIT. They should take what they want. And if they aren't allowed to, then the teams are morons.
Get this schedule more standardized.

And then .... the boys race back from Dallas Friday night, so they can play Saturday night at home.
While every other NHL team has played 2-3-4 games already this week.
Moronic.

Report Card



Minnesota Wild

Preseason over/under: 95.5
Current points pace: 90

Forwards: B-

The Wild rank 24th in the league in goals per game. Jason Zucker and Eric Staal have crashed back to Earth, and the first line hasn't been consistent, but the return of a healthy Zach Parise has been crucial. Charlie Coyle is showing slight improvements from his slump, despite toying with positions.

Defense: A-

Losing Matt Dumba in December hurt, but Minnesota's depth has come through, even as GM Paul Fenton picks up some bottom-pair candidates from waivers (guys he's familiar with from his Nashville days). The Wild are among the league's stingiest in terms of shots allowed per game (29.2)

Goalies: B+

Devan Dubnyk is putting together a fine season, especially turning it on of late. The Wild's lone All-Star has a .913 save percentage and 2.57 GAA -- figures that are improving. Expect him to get a heavy workload down the stretch. Alex Stalock isn't the most dependable backup.

Special teams: A-

The penalty kill ranks third in the league (84.2 percent). Minnesota misses Dumba on the power play (he had 12 power-play points, 6 goals and 6 assists, in his first 32 games) but has maintained in his absence, hitting at 20.9 percent, which is above league average.

Coach: B+

Putting together a successful regular season is old hat for veteran Bruce Boudreau. Getting this team over the playoff hump is the real challenge.

GM: B-

Paul Fenton did virtually nothing to the roster he inherited for the first six months on the job. You can't fault that; the team is playoff-ready. Trading Nino Niederreiter was inevitable, and the return (at first glance) was questionable. We have a feeling he has more on the way.

Class president: Zach Parise

Parise has rebounded quite nicely, playing in his first full season since the October 2017 back surgery. In fact, the 34-year-old is arguably playing his best hockey since he was a New Jersey Devil a decade ago.

In danger of failing: Eric Staal

Hey, we didn't expect Staal to set a franchise record for goals. We knew the 42 goals last season were the byproduct of a perfect storm: right player, right situation, right time. But his regression -- in his overall play -- is not what he wants entering unrestricted free agency, through which he hopes to cash in and stay with his current club.



Overall team grade: B-

JFK site is pretty surreal. You'll actually get to sit at the window where the shots came from (unless it's changed over the years). Be careful though if you are driving down there. There are always idiots walking in the middle of the road taking photos. I don't think they realize it's a live highway

The problem is that all of this involves entering the state of Texas.

Wow, I didn't realize the season was starting tonight. I missed the whole off-season. How did Fenton do in his second draft? Did he make any big moves? Is Boudreau still coaching?
