Does it really matter? Would the Wild have won? Well, probably not. Being totally honest, they were kicking themselves in the teeth for 40 minutes. Just because they showed up for the 3rd period it doesn't mean they deserved to win. Perhaps that was just the NHL's way of putting us out of our misery. So, I guess, thanks NHL.
In other news, Wild GM Chuck Fletcher had a spot with the media yesterday, and boy-oh-boy did he
not disappoint. It's difficult to really take these disappointing post season pressers seriously. When asked about the salary cap situation and the big contracts, Fletcher started his response with "Every team in the league has contracts." I actually laughed out loud at that point, so it's a good thing I wasn't there. You'll find the video for that presser embedded below in the links.
So, in honor of post-season press conferences around the world, and in conjunction with one of my favorite bands coming to town tonight, please enjoy Umphrey's McGee with Believe The Lie.
