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. :]
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:
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.
