That is what exactly what happened to Colorado and Vancouver last year in the playoffs. Your're sitting there watching the game, maybe nod off a bit, get's boring as hell, begin to wonder what the hell is going on? then they skate away with a win....
Exactly! The Wild's trappy system makes the best teams look crappy, that's why I can't stand watching them. Give me a Columbus game anyday.
