    That's Wild

    • Some teams have already started their post-NHL Draft development camp but the Minnesota Wild will be having theirs from July 7-9 at TRIA Rink. The July 7 and 9 practices are free and open to the public, but attendees will need to register beforehand. You can check out the complete camp roster (full of cool prospects) and the schedule at [NHL dot com]
    • Typically, it's always best player available throughout the draft process. But the Wild went a little bit different and targeted very specific players that could work wonders for what this team needs in the near future. Maybe there's something to that. [Hockey Wilderness]

    Off the trail...

    • It's still NHL Free Agency season, so let's look at some of the weirdest contracts handed out by teams so far. [Yahoo Sports]
    • There have been loads of prospects drafted and contracts signed so far this summer. Who are the winners and losers of the offseason so far? [Sportsnet]

    The Strip just listed him as 6'1" and 178lbs. I don't think Sarah put much investigation into that article. It was really just a waste of time reading it.

    Writers mailing it in, that's a huge surprise. Usually beat writers are better than that. But, beat writers are also known for their fluff pieces!

    I do expect Tony, Thomas, the Justins, etc... to get to the bottom of these measurements as true professionals, with no other duties than to appease us interested parties 😉

    I can't believe there's not a development camp wrap-up or an update from around the league, like Debrincat going to the Red Wings, and signing a 4 year extension. 

    What's going on HW? You're not allowed to take vacations all at the same time! 😉

    I could be wrong, but I would guess there is an extensive piece being worked on as we speak...maybe I'm just being hopeful because I'm looking forward to reading something on it myself.

    Since development camp was mostly an orientation, there’s not a lot to breakdown from an evaluation standpoint.

    Yurov learning English well and appearing excited to be with MN and coming over after KHL deal is positive. What the other prospects said in interviews was good relative to their plans. Ohgren and Rasmukampu talking about having good seasons and working on their game before coming to NA. It should be good to get a group going in IA with an opportunity to be called up. If nothing else getting them acclimated to a first year in the US.
