Where does the nickname Bacon come from for Brodin? Is he actually called that by teammates? If so, one of the more badass nicknames out there.

Speedy recovery to both your guys.
Something about how to bulk up before last season in Sweden he ate a lot of Bacon? Or his teammates always got him bacon before games?

Something to that effect. It carried over when he came state-side.

And thanks for the support Oilers fans. Even though you're "rivals", and I use that term loosely, I know you guys have faced similar situations. Its nice to see some support.

Thankfully those intentions didn't start a war, but it's a gamble that probably shouldn't be taken.

I just flipped out when someone gave the impression that their fan base never wished harm on guys when as we've discussed, every fan base has had those moments. It's so easy to fly off the handle right now everyone is tensed up from this damn lockout. There are no excuses. People (myself included) get ticked and cross the line. Hopefully an hour after the game, we can calm down a bit. We don't have to be happy, but just in a state where we can talk without throwing mud.
It's definitely understandable. Oiler fans went through the same thing last season with Hall getting hurt in a similar way (only he slipped instead of leaning to try and poke the puck away), and I was wanting revenge as much as anyone. Anyways though, hopefully things aren't as serious as they appear and they make a quick recovery

it was the hard shot on goal well after the whistle when tensions were high already. hate that. i hated the hits--or rather the injuries as i didn't really see anything to complain about the oilers actions when Granny went down and was on the fence about Hall's and so reserved bile on that front. Just bad timing with Fedun's shenanigans. If i were a D on the ice at that point i would have drilled him.

Fedun let a hard shot go on net after an offside was called.

You guys have a ton of great talent, Granlund, Coyle, Brodin, Dumba, your team will be in good hands for many, many years and one of the powerhouses in the west in due time. Your team also has too much pride and talent to just lay down and die tomorrow, you guys will come out with fire in your bellies, hopefully it'll be a clean but entertaining game. Cheers, Bryan

that comes off as slightly condescending when we're down our two best players and three of our four best players. i think we'll come out and try real hard but c'mon.

Coyle is a beast and none of our D can handle him very well. Larsson is a good player as well, Phillips was much improved this game vs. last Friday. Tomorrow night we'll likely start Roy and RNH will sub in while Hall was planned on subbing out. Yeah we'll have more firepower but we haven't exactly been world beaters this season. Houston won't roll over and die after tonight IMO.

It'll be a game until the Oilers go up by two. That didn't take very long tonight; i don't know if we have the skill to ignite the fire with Granlund, Brodin, and Zucker out. My prediction is we end up chasing Oiler forwards all night.

It's so frustrating considering how the Wilds season tanked on us after starting out so well last year. Injuries.

I didn't see any boneheaded comments on the Oilers board, but if there were any here I'm sorry on behalf of Oilers fans. From what I see, we're just concerned about Granlund and Brodin. Hopefully it's not too serious and they can recover quickly. It really sucks seeing this kind of thing happen.

As far as I'm concerned, Wild fans are welcome on the Oilers boards. Avoiding GDT's in opposing forums is a good idea though, it gets too emotional and the trolls love pouncing on that.

we're really not even free to post more vitriolic comments on our own forums. i think it's safe to say venturing elsewhere during a heated moment is unwise.

Didn't know where to put this, so it's going in this thread. Damn if it wasn't for the HFBoards, we'd be screwed. Even without the "big boys" playing right now, we've got the Aeros and Gophers. Even with the chaos tonight, it was fun. Sure these aren't the monumental GDT's for Wild games, but there is plenty to discuss. While I'll always have a special place in my heart for the Wild.com's official forum, it is dead. No discussion of Aeros games over there. It's almost criminal.

Love this place!

True. And sometimes they suck. But I've learned that without rules, they can turn into that other board on Wild.com where it turned into a high school lunch room before everyone left. Next thing ya know, nobody is discussing hockey...only fighting.

Hall will be out for sure, RNH will be in, you guys out shot the holy hell out of us tonight and our D is bad with Marincin, without him it's horrible. Fedun isn't nearly as mobile as he was prior to breaking his leg. If we are forced to play Plante (played his best game of the year tonight, but he's been garbage this year) AND Ringwald that should mean and automatic 2 goals against right there If we play them as a pairing

Taylor Hall, who complained earlier this week of teams targeting elite players, gets a match penalty for checking Brodin in the head. Hmm.

I come home from working the late shift, and find out that we lost both Brodin and Granlund in one ******* game.

It's like last ******* season all over again. Except this time there isn't even a season.

The Granlund injury didn't look like anything malicious, but the Brodin one is borderline IMO. Keep in mind I've only got Fel's videos to look at, so there might be better angles of what happened, but Brodin's injury just looks like a head shot to me.

Any injury updates yet?
