Been watching a lot of Minnesota games this year on NHL center ice, and I definitely think they have been flying under the radar a little bit to start the season. I think their top line could give our D lots of problems, particularly with the Wild having last change. Backstrom is also underrated, I don't expect the Canucks to light up the score board.
I could see this being a real physical game, maybe what everyone was expecting from the Chicago game. I think the Wild are the team most likely to challenge for the division, and this could be seen as a statement type game for both teams.
His agent, not Schneider himself.. Schneids had no part in it.
Yeah, because Schneider didn't tell him to say that. His agent wouldn't have gone off-the-cuff like that without his client's approval. This way, he gets to express himself while being able to deflect questions to his agent.
