2011-12 Minnesota Wild II
 
Continuation from the previous thread. Carry on.

The Wild's awesomeness cannot be contained in one thread.

youvegotit 12-11-2011 03:39 PM

loving the season so far. :yo:

anyone else think seto is the most expendable piece we have (that would be worth something)?

thestonedkoala 12-11-2011 03:51 PM

If Lats wasn't injured, he would be.

Anyone questioning the trade for Powe? That, to me, was an excellent trade by Fletch...

Welcome!

I think you'll find Seto is one of the more polarizing players here from HF Wild fans that team currently employs. Most are all over the map on how they feel about his game.

Keeptdos 12-11-2011 03:54 PM

Minnesota, Columbus, Washington, Ottawa and Pittsburgh are the only teams that haven't been shutout this season.

So a new game, who is going to fall off the list first?

My personal favourite is Ottawa.

The human in me wouldn't want us to trade him 30 games after he was traded 2 days after he signed a 3 year contract. He's a good player, and not expensive. Let's keep him around.

I sort of feel the same. Also, I think that Seto is off to a fancy streak soon after he's returned. My crystal ball has been proven unreliable, whatsoever.

Averman 12-11-2011 04:01 PM

With the Wild joining the Central/Norris with Detty next year, and the 2 series playoff to get out of it, it might be a good idea to hang onto Seto, hasn't he been a thorn in Detty's side in the past?

Avder 12-11-2011 04:13 PM

I think Seto will come around sooner rather than later. Remember, he is a streaky player, so he's due for a positive streak sometime after he comes back.

An update on his injury would be helpful. I wish the Wild werent so tight lipped about everything.

Agreed and he has the skills to be really good, but imo and maybe it's a personal thing (b/c he scored well against the wild last year, even off his visor i think) but i wouldn't be upset if he got traded. I just think that if he's not on a hot streak he's not the best fit for a top 6 role, then again when he is hot then he's very valuable. Would like to see him be able to get the puck out of the defensive zone better as well.

Northland Wild Man 12-11-2011 11:01 PM

I personally think he was playing injured before he was injured. He just didn't look all that great. Once he heals he is due to break out.

Billy Mays Here 12-11-2011 11:04 PM

I wouldn't trade Seto yet because he needs his roommate in Heatley and separating them already would put the Wild on Santa's naughty list.

Randy BoBandy 12-12-2011 02:18 AM

3 yrs at 3 mill is chump change for Seto's potential. He just has to work on his consistency. He is still young and I think we should wait it out and give him some time to adjust. I think the sign and trade San Jose pulled on him cut him pretty deep. He seemed sad to leave that team. I wonder how he has adjusted to his new lifestyle here outside the rink. It can't be that easy. In short, give him a break he will get better.

Billy Mays Here 12-12-2011 02:34 AM

If Seto can just help out more defensively I wouldn't have any problems with him. I don't want to be a huge stat geek here but when a guy like Brad Staubitz is only a -1 when he doesn't even have a single point, Seto's team leading -7 is pretty ugly.

Also, I liked Gillies play at the beginning of the year but he's seemed to have gone downhill since then. I can see why the coaches are sitting him most of the time and playing guys like Staubitz instead.

I think this is probably a big part of it. He seemed really psyched to be signing on with San Jose for a few more years, and then the next day hes traded. Let him gel here before we think about trading him again.

Ive been thinking a bit, and with Clutterbuck due to come back in the 'Peg Ive been pondering his place in the lineup lately. I know he will be on the top line with Heater and Kapitan Koivu for that game, but with Lats looking like hes going to be back in a few weeks, there wont be a spot for Clutterbuck in the top 6 anymore.

And while that is great news, the way the current 3rd of Powe-Brodizak-Johnson is playing, I don't want to see them broken up when Clutterbuck gets moved out of the top 6. So what do you guys think? Rebuild the 4th line around Clutterbuck? Or what?

And how awesome is it to have a problem of where to put an awesome workhorse forward because we've got so many other awesome workhorse forwards?

I've been gone for a couple of days and come back to people talking about trading gooch? You guys are crazy. He's shown flashes of absolute brilliance and is still a young player. He's cheap for a sniper, so we better keep him around.

Greetings from @mnwild practice. Zidlicky, Latendresse, Harding and Clutterbuck are all on the ice today.

Put your best players on the ice as much as possible. Lats on the top line, Clutter on the third line, Powe on the fourth line.

Ain't much of a sniper. Ain't that cheap either.

If Lats comes back and Yeo is adamant about not breaking up the third line, Clutterbuck goes to the top, Lats the second, and Wellman to Houston. I can't imagine any scenario where Clutterbuck isn't top-9.

Wow. Wild just got ripped apart on Yahoo Puck Daddy's weekly What We Learned segment.

Guy mentions a couple teams on three game win streaks and then fails to mention the 7 game road win streak we have going and instead only points out Brodziak leads the team in goals and it certainly won't last that we'll lead the division. I used to respect this clown but c'mon, it's like guys are afraid to praise the Minnesota Wild.

Jarick 12-12-2011 11:02 AM

Well Lambert's an idiot and he's clinging to stats because he doesn't watch the games.

That was your first mistake. Lambert is reliable for consistently trolling Wild fans. Wouldn't expect that to change any time soon.
