Wallin article (with some Hannula and Brandner thrown in)

Possibly already posted here.. I didn't look too closely. Originally from Aeros.com, I think. Makes him sound pretty good. ;)

It would be a surprise/disappointment if he doesn't play in St.Paul next season, especially if Zholtok is the next victim of the purge.

Me too, I think we need some Swedes in the lineup. :]
Anyone know if the Aeros have any chance at the playoffs?
Just wondering if there'd be any chance of seeing Wallin this year if there is enough Wild trades. Only thing is, I doubt we'd see him if the Aeros have any chance for the playoffs. At least I hope the Wild have a heart and give the Aeros a chance. :]

The Aeros are still in the playoffs. Doesn't seem to matter to the Wild as they called up their leading scorer in Veilleux. Roche is the leading scorer on the team currently. Doesn't say much for the scoring prowess of the Aeros forwards.

I believe the Aeros actually have a decent shot at making the playoffs this season. They're 4th in the West right now. Here's how the playoffs work this year:

(from www.caldercup.com)

In 2003-04, a total of 20 teams -- five from each division -- will qualify for the AHL's postseason.

The playoffs will begin with four qualifying series (one in each division), with the fourth-place team playing the fifth-place team in a best-of-three matchup, with all three games at the home of the higher-seeded team. These series winners advance to the division semifinals.

The best-of-seven division semifinals will match the first-place team with the qualifying series winner and the second-place team with the third-place team. The series winners advance to the division finals.

The best-of-seven division finals will match the winners of each division semifinal. These series winners advance to the best-of-seven conference finals, and those series winners will meet in the best-of-seven Calder Cup Finals.

Thanks Strib and Ceber for clearing that up. I took a peak at the standings and thought maybe they had two conferences( North and West, Atlantic and East) with 8 teams making the playoffs. Five teams for each division seems like a bit much to me. But good luck to the Aeros.

I'm not sure how, but I forgot that Veilleux was their leading scorer before being brought up to the Wild. The Wild are heartless :P
