god damn i feel bad for Nystrom. I think he deserves to be in the NHL. bah, who knows...he seems to have a great attitude about it.
Go Aeros!

TaLoN 10-07-2011 10:52 PM

It's a far cry from the days where we held on to guys like Fall Down Darby and took so long to waive them to send them to the minors isn't it?

We begged for a few years to send his lameass down and they wouldn't until he had only a half yr left on his deal... Nystrom, none of us even saw it coming! :laugh:

Glad to see running the team the right way is priority 1, instead of letting salary dictate decisions.

Fel 96 10-07-2011 10:57 PM

According to Nystrom, he will be back soon with the Wild. By soon, he means in less than a month.

Can't wait to see that.

Caior89 10-07-2011 10:58 PM

Actually, if Nystrom manage to put some points, its going to be great for his confidence.

Fel 96 10-07-2011 11:10 PM

Well, I found some interesting tweets:

How do the minnesota wild think they will be a better team without @enystrom23 in the lineup? #whosrunningthatorganization

And look at that, no sign of Boogaard.

this providence 10-08-2011 08:38 AM

It'll be interesting to see what they do with the goaltenders. Frankly, I'm surprised to see all three still there.

Season starts Sunday against Chicago.

The bolded part is kind of a relieve for me. I was a little worried when I looked at the roster on the AHL site and saw Endras listed as a Defenceman. :biglaugh:

saywut 10-08-2011 11:01 AM

Wouldn't be surprised to see Medvec loaned to the ECHL, he's not going to get work on that D IMO. Wild are carrying 8 right now as well. I see Lofquist didn't make it.

Should be interesting to see how Torchetti utilizes his forwards. Nystrom-Peters-Ortmeyer would be a pretty damn good shut-down line for AHL standards. Almond's not there yet and it already looks crowded for the likes of Broda, Foucault, and Fontaine, though Rau ending up as this year's Daoust wouldn't shock me.

Dampland 10-08-2011 11:41 AM

I will watching Wellman.

Without POS there to put up his AHL dominating #'s it looks to me like Casey will have to be the man to step up and be the go-to goal scorer.

Lets see if he can:hockey:

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 05:42 PM

0-0 at end of 1. Hackett in net. Had a nice stop on Schroeder. Nystrom looks at useful as he does with the Wild.

The video feed is bad so I cannot make out lines....yet.

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 05:59 PM

Cuma nailed by Oreskavich on the dump in....Cuma slow to get up.

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:01 PM

Prosser-Hendry top defense pairing.

Cuma is back on ice with Penner.

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:02 PM

Wellman's speed draws PP. 4 on 3.

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:03 PM

Penner to Taffe. Taff rips shot from point. Wellman tipped it in front of net. 1-0 Aeros.

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:04 PM

Fredheim and Genoway last pairing.

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:08 PM

Wellman gets his second. 2 on one. Wellman coming down right, passes to McMillan, McMIllan fires, misses net, comes back out front, Wellman taps it home. 2-0.

Fel 96 10-09-2011 06:15 PM

Nice!

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:18 PM

Wellman just misses natural hatty. Nice stop by Climie.

berdush 10-09-2011 06:25 PM

what about lines?

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:26 PM

Broda and Clackson scrap. Broda gets edge.

21 to 8 shots in favor of Aeros.

Wellman best player on ice.

rynryn 10-09-2011 06:27 PM

Casey is vying for a call up, eh?
with the big bully bouchard finally suspended for his dirty play, maybe Wellman gets to play in Ottawa?

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:30 PM

Foucault-Peters-Ortmeyer
Taffe and Rau on a line
Nystrom and Wellman on a line
Macintyre and Broda on a line

Guessing DiSalvatore with Taffe and Rau and Palmer with Nystrom and Wellman

D pairings listed earlier.

Jbcraig1883 10-09-2011 06:32 PM

Wow...spinorama pass from Foucault to Peters...Peters to Ortmeyer...beautiful goal...seriously.
