Okay, I should stop daydreaming. I must admit, it felt good to win the Stanley Cup with the Wild and Koivu wearing the C...


...In NHL 12.

I totally read this part with Gary Thorne's voice in my head.

Woot! Good signing.

Now trade Coyle, Backstrom, and Lats for Nash! Half-kidding.

Nah, hoping Coyle is a tough-player for the next 10 years.

Change out Coyle for someone else and then you can half joke.

I want to see what Coyle can do with his Q linemates in the AHL and NHL.

Why the hell isnt Gary Thorne doing hockey anymore? His voice just has that authority to it that always made you feel like you were watching something special.

I think we should go after him to do play by play for us. Pay him whatever the hell he wants.

ESPN doesn't have hockey other than the NCAA tourney.

And I dont know if they even had Thorne call that last year.

I am dead serious when I say the Wild should offer him whatever the hell he wants to call games on the air for us.

They did, I actually met him. It was Thorne, Barry Melrose and Clay Matvick.

That's a good news indeed.

Looking forward to sign Granlund in the summer as well.

I agree. We should pay Gary Thorne whatever he wants in order to do hockey for us. Didn't we have a female member here?


That being said, it's a shame Antero Mertaranta (the guy who does all Finnish hockey matches on TV) is signed by MTV3 and 4Pro has rights for NHL. I would love some Wild action with Antero... Umm, that didn't come out right But y'all know what I mean, anyway.

$900,000 is a fine birthday gift for young Coyle.

Don't spend it all in one place, kid.
