Only Minnesota and Vancouver make the playoffs. Guessing Vancouver is the 1 or 2 seed while Minnesota is 5-6ish.
This but switching Oilers and Avs

Fun facts about Spurgeon:

23 points ties him for 69th among defensemen.
20 assists ties him for 55th among defensemen.

Notable D-men with the same or fewer points/assists:
- Marek Zidlicky
- Luke Schenn
- Braydon Coburn
- JM Liles
- OEL
- Tom Gilbert
- Victor Hedman
- Jason Garrison
- Brooks Orpik
- Adam Larsson
- Tyler Myers
- Sheldon Souray


He's about as underrated a defenseman as there is, since nobody even knows he plays in the NHL.

OEL had 32 pts last eason.

But I agree with your premise...

2. Prospects who aren't signed but are on Twitter (Lucia, Haula, everyone drafted this year) - this makes sense because maybe they won't be signed or even with college guys that may not be good with compliance.

3. Guys signed to Aeros contracts (Colton Jobke, Kyle Medvec, Sean Lorenz) - this one is a more gray area. They all look legit (there's a couple I didn't include that might not be like Jarrod Palmer) but it's always possible they weren't. It's also possible since they are just Aeros guys they aren't included on the list because Wild fans could care less.

4. Jake Dowell - either he's fake or the Wild missed him on the list.

Which begs the question, who would fake a Jake Dowell twitter account?

It's 100% impossible Dowell's account is fake.

Souray and him were good buddy in Dallas and just check their tweets.

Good, the Wild confirmed that was a mistake.

They are real.

No I knew Dowell is real through someone else but it's fun speculating that there is a fake one.

Seems like a good thread to never make a post in.

That's how I have it too, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Oilers finished last in the division again.

Since when did anyone think Wild looked really good on paper last season?

They must have assumed our defense was really good

Oh. It was because of the allstar, you know, Nick Johnson.

I think they mean our team looks good on paper this upcoming season... Then we'll inevitably crumble.
