The problem is so many people expected we were getting a 50 goal scorer in Heatley when we traded for him. But anyone who actually did some research realized that we were getting a 25-30 goal per year player at best. Which for the WILD meant our highest scorer every year (except 1-2 years from Groinerick). If we could get 20-30 goals from all of our top 6 forwards, we would be just fine.

The problem is the Wild Franchise has never been able to score goals. Doesn't matter what coach, GM or players we have, we just can't score goals. It appears that Norm Green not only stole our team, but also cursed our land as well.
I said looks slower. Heatley's wind-up slapper is annoying. Takes forever to release. Here's a hint Danny, its doesn't work very often. The Wild could put just about anybody with Koivu and Parise, and they may score as many goals as Heatley. For example, last year Cal C scored quite a few on a line with Koivu.
