1/ Minnesota sneaks into the 8th spot in the West and causes fits against the number 1 team, pushing them the 7th game but ultimately loses
2/ Latendresse ends up being traded after Casey Wellman takes over on the top 6. Injuries limit Lats to a handful of games before the deadline, comes back healthy and is traded to a playoff team that needs depth.
3/ Brad Staubitz is demoted to the AHL. He is claimed by Philadelphia.
4/ Cody Almond establishes himself in the NHL. With him, MacMillian (an emergency call up), Gillies, Powe, and Clutterbuck, a lot of teams have fits against a tighter defensive and more physical Minnesota Wild team.
5/ By the end of the year, Scandella is known league wide and establishes himself in the top 4 due to Wilson and Yeo
6/ Minnesota trades one of their top prospects in order to get help on the blueline once Zidlicky, Schultz and Stoner all go down with injuries. Haula is traded I believe.
7/ Backstrom and Harding both go down with injuries and Hackett is called up. Backstrom is traded at the deadline and Minnesota goes back to the 1A and 1B tandem of before.
8/ Clutterbuck makes a questionable hit on an Edmonton player and Edmonton fans scream we're a dirty team as the player is placed on the IR list.
9/ Heatley likes coming back to the Midwest and posts his best season in the last 3 years with 90 points.
10/ Minnesota has two first round picks this year in the 2012.
