They look a lot like Vapors, and they have LS2's already installed.

I think they just updated it today due to the Granlund signing.

Capgeek is nice, but I do like how the Wild one is laid out with all players together.

I just sent him a happy B-day tweet. I always feel bad for Gui. He tried so hard to get into shape and play well last year and he did great when healthy but injuries ruined another year for him. I will be disappointed if we let him. He is one of my favorite players on the team when he able to play.

I myself will be more than just disappointed if we let him go. I'll throw a brick through Fletcher's window but since my aim is so bad currently I'll "miss" and end up throwing it through Sid Hartman's window instead.

Anybody listening to KFAN?

They had Flahr on there and he basically confirmed what should have been already known, but he said the Wild are not going to reach at the draft. He mentioned trading up or trading back for someone, but (paraphrasing) "right now we're at #7, and we're choosing the best player available" in response to a question about taking a defender to bulk up the blue line pipeline.

Thoughts?

EDIT: Russo was talking to a writer from Edmonton and was asking about the possible lockout. Russo said that everything is looking in Minnesota's favor going forward, it would suck if their momentum was broken. He listed: Granlund signing, Coyle coming in, Koivu being healthy, signing Parise, trading for Bobby Ryan- and was then interrupted by the other guy. Russo was joking(at least half-joking) but it got me thinking.

Who could the Wild viably trade for Bobby Ryan? They need center depth. We've got a few in the pipeline...but who would be worth it? Would anyone be in favor of trying to nab him?

we could trade for Ryan because we have the assets...but that would mean waving buh-bye to our first plus a couple of the more popular prospects at least. At this point i'm just too curious about how they'll turn out to find that super appealing.

What would a Bobby Ryan goal celebration look like if Koivu provided the feed? He'd probably grab Koivu's stick and show it to the goalie.

Russo just trolled Luongo on KFAN. Said he would rather sign 47-year-old Hasek than go after Luongo

Would anybody be able to provide a replay of Russo's time on KFAN today? I just started listening now and wasn't able to hear anything he's said up to this point.

KFAN should have the podcast up later in the day.

Mike Yeo on KFAN right now.

Edit: Just talked about Parise for a minute, that's it.

Burrrrrrrrn!

Honestly I think Luongo will make a nice name for himself in a low key market like Florida, Columbus, or Tampa Bay. He's not cut out for the high pressure markets like Vanny.

Luongo doesn't deserve half the crap he gets. Even with his sub-par playoff performance in recent years his numbers in the playoffs are still just as good as goalies like Miller, Lundqvist, and Rinne. He's still a good goalie and I hope he can get out of Vancouver so he doesn't have to deal with all the crap they give him.

Also, on an unrelated note, I hate how slow NHL.com is. It takes so long to click and load the right things.

Anything about Justin Schultz? That would be a major boost for Minnesota.

Gui is heading back to Atlanta to finalize his treatments and being more than 100% he's right now. Good news I'd say.
