Off topic a bit, what is the song they play between intermission at games? Not the offspring one, the other one. Is it Muse?

Its gotta be frustrating to be a Wild fan. Minny is such an over the top hockey state it has to drive them insane every year they don't get close to winning the cup.

They can call us in a few decades to commiserate.

One of the darkest moments in NHL history for me was when the North Stars left Minny and that state was left without an NHL team. I was in shock...and pissed off...happy when they got the Wild but I want to see them do well. They are the real hockey state.

i grew up in MN (moved in 79 when i was 13), at the time the NHL and the Stars weren't on the radar. the NHL was on the radar as something to watch on TV. i remember the weekly game was all that was on at the time on either NBC or ABC. but everyone was wrapped up in youth hockey, high school, college, pro - in that order. i seriously doubt much has changed since then.

i know this past weekend my grandma was glued to the TV watching the HS state tourney. by dad's hometown made it to the semi's and the school i would have gone to and played at lost in the finals. she was going insane from what my dad says. she took me to a few of the HS games from my dad's hometown after we moved and we were visiting over the years.

when i was a kid we started in 1st grade and had an A and B team for each level at our elementary school. obviously not all kids were into hockey, but we had two full squads from grades 1-6.

on the weekends when they were in town i was down at the arena to watch the UMD games every weekend.

it is a hockey culture, but i think it centers around what's closest to you. ie, your kids, the local school, the local college. if there is time left and you live close to the Cities then yeah I guess there would be interest in the Wild.

I'm amazed at the Wild's payroll. They're almost right up against the CAP, and having nothing to show for it.

Bouchard, Cullen, Zidlicky and Backstrom are taking up 17.5M in CAP space for the next 3 years. Koivu's 6.75M contract kicks in next year.

The Sharks GDT is hilarious. They changed their avatars to pictures of Toews.

Haha

BOARD ANNOUNCEMENT


The All-Time Favorite Sharks tournament planned for the coming off-season has been canceled. Instead I am going to decree that Jonathan Toews is the winner now and for all time.

Anyone have a problem with that?


Also a random Clowe fact. But what Vs failed to mention is that Jonathan Toews personally has bigger hauls when crab fishing than the entire fisheries industries of Newfoundland and Maine combined.

I saw that too.

JT is becoming the Tom Brady of the NHL. The announcers/analyst won't get off his jock.

The only thing i like about the Nucks is that they have a guy who shares my last name. (Chris Higgins)

I'm glad The Wild faltered. I have a difficult time "cheering" for the Nucks.

San Jose @ Dallas

Phoenix @ Calgary

Not sure who I should root for here. Dallas and Calgary I suppose. Probably should just root for no one getting the pity point.

9 of San Jose's final 12 are vs. Pacific teams... and they have the best record vs. the division. http://www.nhl.com/ice/standings.htm...02011&type=XVW

Kings will have their work cut out for them.
