Veikkaus is actually a state-owned monopoly rather than a betting company.

Naww

I challenge you to an avatar bet on a different subject though.

I bet that Spurgeon WILL score over 25 points this season. The loser will wear an avatar of the winner's choice for 1 month. A loss of avatar due to infractions will double the time lost.

Nope.

Plus, if I change my avatar I have to reduce it to 125x125 from the 150x150. I like it big.

Just sayin'...
Maybe looks like him, stats look nothing like Pogges. Pogge didn't put up Hackett or Kuemper numbers until his like 6th year in the AHL.

Well since he's injured and it's a shortened season, it will probably take him a bit longer than expected. I'd give him until the end of this season.

That's when you bring the Brodin avatar back as vintage.

a poll thread with out a poll?

my vote here is for Gustafsson, but not for a few more years, i think he will come NA next year and will need some time to adjust to the rink size.

I also can see a Gustafsson/Hackett double team, much like the early history of the Wild, you go with the hot guy.

Goalies are terribly hard to predict. I'm saying Gustafsson but it might as well be someone we haven't even drafted yet.

Especially transition from Europe to North-America can be very tricky for goalies. For example, last season's FEL goalie of the year Riku Helenius has .880 SVS% in 12 games in the AHL this year. Another very solid Finnish goalie prospect and a former Wild pick Niko Hovinen has played 15 games with .889 SVS% in the ECHL, after being one of the best goalies in FEL last season. Tbh I'm surprised so many have been saying Gustafsson, I'd still go with Hackett.
