Nice one man! ūüĎ欆

Minnesota should not take for granted the best hockey player the organization has ever had. He has been a competitor and consistently the Wild's top weapon. He scores all types of goals and doesn't neglect defense. He doesn't just overshadow Gaborik in records. Kaprizov is a more complete player with a superior motor and toughness. 

I hope the Wild can add the important guys at the right time to reach another level. If not for the injuries and bad start, MN could easily be sitting safely in a playoff spot today. #97 is the best thing that ever happened for the Wild.

If Edmonton wiffs out of the playoffs 3 more years  maybe we can lure # 97 to join #97  in MN  . now the 1st part is very possible  but the 2nd part probably pipe dream

Looks like one player can't help it if Fleury and Gus let in 6...ewwwwwwwwwwwww.

Not a game they needed right now.

With the injuries this team has and roller coaster play I'd contend last night is exactly what they needed and shows who the team is. This team doesn't have the blue line at this time or any depth to make a real push in the playoffs. Bring up the prospects and let's find out what the future looks like.

Last season this time, they lost Ek & Shaw. They had been buzz'n before that.

Now on top of everything, they lose Ek, Brodin, and are on the road against LA who got a few greasy ones early. A flubbed shot with bunt style tip-in and a pass that catches the defenseman's belly before going 5-hole. Being down three-rip in the first 10-15 minutes is kinda tough to overcome anyway.

Brodin the NHL veteran can't be replaced overnight by Mermis the NHL rookie. No offense to Mermis, but MN has some work to do in the off-season to correct some of these issues.
