  1. The Knights are a chippy team and that's how they win in the playoffs. The Wild aren't tough enough right now to play that kind of hockey. Foligno and Greenway can't fight all the team's battles. I'd like to see them add a strong forechecker that knows how to hit without ending up in the penalty box.

  2. Eventually with the right center and they could be the best line in the league. They didn’t click together on the PP where they are trying to play a structured plan. These guys need to freewheel around to maximize their skills.

  3. Next year (With no trades)

    Greenway Ek Foligno
    Kaprizov "Guy" Zucc
    "Guy" fine…Parise Rossi Fiala
    Who Friggin Cares

    -let's keep the 4th liners under $3/4mil, though, eh?!

    "Guy" fine…Suter Spurgeon
    Brodin "Guy" fine… Dumba
    Cole/Soucy Addison

  4. The Wild are still in need of a true offensive defenseman and a true #1 center. The play of Kahkonen, Kaprizov, Zuccarello and Ek definitely helps. Inject some more dynamic players, that can skate effortlessly and carry the puck and we’ll be set.

  5. Wild fans are going to be shocked by how quickly Rossi slides into the lineup and produces next year.

    All the Wild need this off-season is a good top 6 center. Not an all star guy but a legitimate player that can jump between the third line and second line and actually belong there.

    Age doesn't even matter, as long as the guy has 3 good years before age regression.

    With Boldy and our young defenseman prospects coming in the Wild look ready to grab the league by the balls for the next ten years.

    The Wild should not get cute and leverage the future be it prospects or draft picks. We have a unique opportunity to be extremely good for years to come.

    Even a few years from now another window opens up with the Parise and Suter contracts coming off the books and we can prep for another talent infusion.

  6. To elaborate on previous comment. Pairing Kaprizov and Fiala would be an awful idea this season. It's not like the team is losing. Let's not get cute.

    In a year where both of these players are getting new contracts my big fear would be Kaprizov would obviously significantly inflate Fiala's numbers which would bite us in the ass come negotiation time.

    Kaprizov is a super star and will get what he gets and deserves whatever he asks for within reason.

    Fiala is a star player and a stud but we don't need to be paying him super star money. We need to see what he's able to do on his own line.

    Kaprizov — Random Pond Hockey Center on the way to the arena — Zucc needs to stay as is. The line is fantastic.

    Next season after long term extensions are handed out I'm willing to see what happens.

  7. Question for you guys. What platform or application do you guys use to be able to do this podcast virtually with no time delays for response? I’d love to start a virtual podcast with a buddy but haven’t found a platform to do it on!

  8. For everyone missing our former players for our team don’t bring any of them back. We’ve done so much work getting rid of the bad culture that was here for the last 4-5 years. It is beyond idiotic to even consider that. I don’t want Nino, Granny, Coyle or Zucker back. I don’t care how well they’re performing at other places. They were a part of the poison

  9. Just out of curiosity how many original Vegas Golden Knights prospects/draft picks are on the VGK? All I'm saying is if Seattle Kraken get the same advantages we are looking at Kraken vs VGK for next seasons WCF. SKOL Wild. Golden knights where spoon fed.

  10. You have no clue you keep what got you there you pick up a center in the summer
    Most likely Nugent Hopkins you definitely keep Hartman. And bjugstad Bonino hunt are gone replacement Addison mennel

  11. By far the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard
    Fiala is the most overrated player on our team
    He is a turnover machine he is the worst passer by far and you want to change Kaprizovs line that has been killing it? Not broke don’t fix it
