That's a stretch, I'd say. Gaborik didn't contribute that much defensively, and the Wild's defense has been more important than offense when it comes to the standings.

Where'd you hear that Bouchard isn't ready? He'll play for sure. At the very least, I don't see him taking a step back from last year. I don't think anyone has him forecasted to be a goal-scorer, though. I think people are most excited about his playmaking abilities. As for scoring, it's a little early to guess, in my opinion. We should wait and see what the final roster looks like. If we end up without Dupuis and Gaborik for the season, and nobody steps up to play offense, there won't be as many goals, that's for sure. It'll still be better than no NHL hockey at all, though.
