This one might be the one. With the Minnesota Wild hosting the mediocre New York Islanders for a little Monday afternoon collision, if the Wild end up losing this game, it might be the game that puts the nail in the coffin of this season. It might officially make Minnesota far too gone from the playoffs and with the NHL trade deadline approaching, we could see some disaster.
BUT! Thank goodness that Jonas Brodin is back and healthy, and we are starting to finally see what a full roster might look like. Now, it's just Jared Spurgeon who remains out for the time being.
