Would be awesome to have David Perron. Trade to get Gillies back and send him to STL for Perron.

Gotta get two points vs. Columbus..especially considering they aren't flying into town until 10am because of the fog..right off the jet check in and play for them..and they played last night. Gotta take advantage and smoke them

No excuses if we don't win here. Day rested, weak opponent, we're mostly healthy (fully healthy if Spurgeon plays). Panic mode engaged if the second line can't score at least one goal tonight.

I'd say if the bottom three can't score at least one.

Please don't remind us of the horrible drafting pre-Fletcher. I try not to think about it.

Columbus wont just roll over and die. Our guys will actually have to play hockey if they want to win.

Every opponent but Detriot has been playing the second game of back to backs against the Wild this season. Of coarse, Colorado doesn't count. Wish the Wild would of took advantage of that fact.

After getting out-coached by Trotz, Babcock and the Hitch, imagine Yeo getting out-coached by TR? Last time CBJ was in town, didn't they win? Native Minnies may be a bit ambivalent about who wins because after all TR is one of their own. I know it sounds funny but I would rather have power forward Gillies replacing Cullen on any line. Based upon results thus far, I am guessing someone on the 2-4 lines gets an assist, but only because they were on the power play.

Read in the news that Yeo will probably change lines 2-4. What do you think it'll be if thats true?

Is this serious? No Minnesotan Wild fan would be OK with CBJ winning just because Richards is from MN.
Also please explain just how Yeo was "out-coached" by all of those coaches. I'm sure if we wouldn't have taken those 3 back to back penalties in STL and held on to win you wouldn't be saying he got "out-coached".

Again? Wow. And no call-ups either.

I'm thinking:

Bouchard - Granlund - Brodziak
Clutterbuck - Cullen - Setoguchi
Powe - Konopka - Mitchell

Don't know if we'll see Kassian or not. Setoguchi might get dropped a line because let's face it, he has been outright bad in the first five games.

"Probably"? Nothing in the article says anything more than "there might possibly perhaps be changes made maybe". Either way, I wouldn't really read into what Finnish media writes about NHL, as it's pretty much always second-hand information and often misinterpreted/exaggerated.

5-2 Wild.

Expect the 3rd line to have 2 goals!

Wow, I am optimistic today.

But, seriously, the Wild should be able to do what they did against Dallas for most of the game and Detroit in the first period - forecheck and control momentum - to Columbus. Hopefully it looks like what St. Louis did to us minus the physical dominance, since, we don't have that.

The article is written in a sense that there might be line changes. Perhaps I should have used the word "might". Anyway.

Plus, YLE is way better than IS / IL etc.

It's not really news though, just a guy speculating based on what Yeo said.

True, but it was an article in a news site, thats what I meant by "read in the news".

Plus I think the article is based on this.

Coach Mike Yeo said he might make some changes to the Wild's lines for Tuesday's game against Columbus at Xcel Energy Center, though he will leave the Parise-Mikko Koivu-Dany Heatley line intact.

I'd like to see the lines we had last game. I think they looked good until the penalties took over.

This game is a measuring stick... we win fairly cleanly and it proves we are an above average team taking care of average to below average teams. We might not be in that elite category with Chicago or Pittsburgh (when Pitt gets going) but we will be able to compete with those elite teams. We also should get into the playoffs if we take care of those average to below average teams and compete highly with the better teams.

They'll do well.

Columbus' defense is a lot better than they've been given credit for, but they aren't all that physical. PMB and MiG are going to get some room to work, and hopefully it'll be beautiful.
