OH!

We forgot Daigle! We brought him in! WOOT! That was in the midst of grabbing former 1st round busts like Eric Choiunard, Zyuzin...

We also brought in Wiemer, who was decent and then we traded Michalek a year after that. YAY!
That was good fun, wasn't it? It was the start of the end for Gabby as the drama of the next few years was set in motion.

Wait! Wiemer sucked but Stevenson was good.

As for Weinhandl. He was our one-eye sniper!

Obscure Wild players: Did anyone mention Cliff Ronning, the only 70s porn star/hockey player in Minnesota history?

I had randomly just thought about him last night. I was like "what ever happened to that guy!?"

I ran over him a few times when I played the team he was on in nhl '99.

Can't remember which team it was.

And who could ever forget the three future superstars of the early Minnesota Wild - Rickard Wallin, Matt Foy, and Kyle Wanvig.

Cliff Ronning is running Base hockey, which manufacturers custom hockey sticks. Not the best on the market but a good product.

Matt Foy was a horrible player, and word is he flirted with anything that was a solid. Wallin was a little tyke. And Wanvig? Good grief! How did we manage to fill that arena those years?

Matt Foy... the post lockout posterboy for everything that was wrong with Risebrough!

"We'll keep Foy with the Wild because we can't risk losing an asset like him via waivers!"

Foy then became the first gourmet popcorn popper in the pressbox, before the team simply walked away from that very asset they were so worried about losing during the season.

Funny... the guy Risebrough was sooooo worried about losing? Has played a grand total of ZERO NHL games since the Wild let him walk. Go figure!

Wow what an asset he was!
