Excellently done, as always.

Losing Schultz is a huge blow, but I think we can still match up pretty good with Hill and Carney, their experience will make all the difference.

I think the biggest x-factor as far as looking at the Avs is whether or not their PP get on a roll. I know one of the big things Colorado has going for them is excellent scoring depth; but somehow, I'm not really worried about them outgunning us even strength, their forwards aren't big, drive-the-net guys that usually give us trouble. It will ultimately come down to special teams, I think.

Another person picking the Wild in 5.


I'm just calling it like I see it.... The Wild are favored by just about everyone who isn't on the Avs boards, national media especially.

I don't see the Avs giving up 4 straight.

I'd take Boogey out, put Simon, Foy (instead of Parrish) in.
Gaborik, Bouchard, Demitra need to stop dancing on the perimiter, show some grit and go the net with more frequency and determination. Or score from the perimiter, if the Avs allow it.
The Demitra-Gaborik duo put out 2 shots combined last night.

Agreed Demitra and Gaborik try to many times to stickhandle through people. Go wide drive to the net or dump it in if possible (although thats not their forte). Those two really need to step it up next game. With Parrish out too I think Voros would bring a great physical game to the table. Maybe try Simon out there too... Veilux wasnt doing much anyways.

Ouch. Might be a little more difficult now for your 5 (or 5 1/2) defensemen to "shut down the Avs" for the next four games in a row.



Another reason why 'Wild in 5' was a pick made out of fanhood rather than actually predicting the outcome of a seven-game series.

I'm not gonna deny that their work is cut out for them, but its not like Colorado dominated Minnesota in the first game; it could have gone either way. There is still no reason why the Wild can't win any of the upcoming games.

So if Minnesota had won the first game, would you still be all over my ass like you are now? That's great you disagree with me and my take, but I have the feeling you wouldn't be around if Minnesota had won.

Wow are you just looking for a fight? You are like a pit bull wandering on the Wild board waiting for the first "Avs suck" to unleash your furry. Lighten up Francis.

Deuce did a great job breaking own the series and as a blogger it was his opinion, and of course he might be a bit biased because he is a Wild fan.

Look how much more attention his blog is getting cause he said the avs would win in 6. Could have just been a publicity thing too.
