  • Evason unveils new Wild lineup at practice, Rossi included


    It’s not going so great in St. Paul. The Minnesota Wild have lost their first three games of the season in somewhat different disastrous ways. Whether it was a complete failure, an attempt to equalize after going down early, or a quasi back-and-forth match that didn’t go their way; they all ended the same.

    So now they’re in experimentation mode and after having top prospect Marco Rossi sit for a game, he’s back in the lineup that head coach Dean Evason unveiled at practice on Wednesday morning. In addition to Rossi’s return to action, Jordan Greenway appears to be healthy enough to take line drills at practice and potentially be included in the upcoming game against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. That will become clearer closer to.

    Projected Wild lineup:

    Kirill Kaprizov — Ryan Hartman — Mats Zuccarello
    Jordan Greenway — Joel Eriksson Ek — Marcus Foligno
    Matt Boldy — Marco Rossi — Frederick Gaudreau
    Brandon Duhaime — Sam Steel — Tyson Jost

    Jake Middleton — Jared Spurgeon
    Jonas Brodin — Matt Dumba
    Alex Goligoski — Calen Addison

    Damn. Well, that’s a hell of a lineup and something we like to see. Let’s just break it down point form because that’s what is easiest.

    Well, it’s going to be some game to watch on Thursday against the Canucks and an even more important road trip after that. If everything falls the way it should with this lineup, the Wild might even find themselves above .500. They do still have to win their first game though. Baby steps.
