Revisionist history is always a failure.
Off topic: Afer talking to a few fellow Winnipeggers, the game vs the Wild has been one of the best games this season. I know I had a blast at it. (even though they lost )

^Anyone agree? Without Koivu carrying our top line, we ain't going nowhere, I'm hoping for at least 7th or 8th overall draft this summer.

Unfortunate and as seen in recent history this team cannot win without their captain. Still got over a month till the deadline, so if the expected downfall continues to happen there will be no reason to not sell off rentals.

No, they didnt. They played one bad game against the Jets and then they responded with one hell of a game against Chicago. They died when Koivu was injured and out for the Islander game.

I think the lack of effort and just flat out lackluster play has more to do with the season sh**ing the bed then injuries.

So ... we have 11 forwards making the trip and Hackett has been reassigned to Huston. Sort of strange that it's this late in the day with no announcement on who is being recalled from Huston. Feels like a trade is coming.

Stop using the "T-word." Nobody wants to follow a team that gives up. Wishing it upon your own team will only bring hostility.

Can we please see how the team reacts to things tomorrow in Philly and then in Toronto before we declare this season completely over?

Good god you all make me look like Mister Positive and I am one of the most negative people you will ever meet.

Nope I'm just a realist, and not a rose-colored glasses fan.

Or are you saying you'd rather have the Wild, make it into the final playoff spot on the last day, and promptly get swept in the playoffs? Because there is no chance this team wins a playoff series this year.

The we are once again stuck with a mid round draft pick position.

To be honest I think making the playoffs would do a lot better for our franchise than the usual no playoffs and middling draft pick.

A playoff berth will show potential free agent signings that this franchise is turning things around.

A playoff berth gives fans hope for the future and sells tickets.

The only thing that really seems for certain to me at this point is that there's no way were gonna be able to tank hard enough to land a lottery pick. And if were not picking that high up on the board whats the point really?

I can appreciate the "Realism" of the situation, but I'm willing to give the guys two games to show that they're not going to completely self destruct again just as they're starting to get back on track. Do I think they're going to do that? I give it maybe a 50/50 chance that Yeo has got the locker room set up in such a way that losing Koivu doesn't cause a collapse.

Like I said. I'll probably be blowing up Eddy Xmas Disaster Style sometime this week, but I'm gonna wait until I see how they do in Philly and Toronto.

Yeah, even making the playoffs and getting knocked out in the first round would mean a ton to the franchise at this point. It would elevate them back into respectability, in the eyes of the fans, the media, and PariseUFAs.

They'd have to make it to the playoffs first, and I don't see that happening. Unless the Carson McMillan is the missing piece.

As the old saying goes. You can s**t in one hand and hope in the other.

Not throwing in the towel just yet. Phoenix who usually is in the playoffs every year is on the outside right now so that is good, but the blues made the jump, i think they will come back to earth a little bit but probably still make the playoffs. Its going to come down to Preds, Kings, Stars, Wild, Yotes for 6-8 seeds. I think Flames, Avs fall off but then again possibly the Wild could too

Koivu is still keeping his hopes up about making it to the All Star game and NHL has agreed to delay naming a replacement for him for couple of days. The article I read was in finnish.

I think Koivu needs to be checked for a concussion, because if he isn't ruling out the All-Star game yet, then he's lost his freaking mind! Hey Mikko, you aren't a robot! Don't mess with a separated shoulder.

It's an honor to be selected for the game, and he needs to realize that he WAS given that honor. Sure, he can't play in it or participate in the activities. But he was picked to go before the injury. Be proud of that and know that there are plenty more chances in the future.

It makes ZERO sense to risk further injury just to play in a game that doesn't even count! He's already had shoulder surgery before...why play with fire? Heal properly and re-join your team...in case for some unexplained reason (and h-e-double hockey sticks freezes over) they happen to go on a winning streak and continue to fight for a spot. They'll need you!

No, he's not getting traded.
