Minnesota's good fortunes this summer yields high hopes for the Houston Aeros

Written by Derek Felska | 01 August 2012

I am not going to lie and say hockey is at the top of my mind all of the time at this time of year. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact I am studying a football playbook which is a sign the start of the season is a little less than a week away, or maybe its the fact my eyes are glued to the television as I watch Team USA battle through the London Olympics. I absolutely love the Olympics; both the summer and winter games especially. I don't pay much attention to basketball and the 'Dream Team', but just about every other event I do my best to watch, absorbing the drama and emotions of it all. I think its pretty tough not to get caught up into it. The Wild have done a lot this summer to get fans caught up in anticipation for the 2012-13 season to begin but their good fortunes have other ripple effects apart from a cover story from the Hockey News and increased season ticket sales. Its been a pretty terrific summer for the Houston Aeros as well.

The Wild's good fortune with the free agent signings of Ryan Suter, Zach Parise, Torrey Mitchell, Zenon Konopka and Jake Dowell along with a bumper crop of prospects means the Aeros should be locked and loaded for a very promising 2012-13 campaign of their own. This is will not be your typical Houston team that is buoyed by a few ringers. In the past, players like Kirby Law, Jean-Guy Trudel, Erik Westrum and Patrick O'Sullivan carried the lion-share of the load. The best part is, the Wild have stocked Houston mostly from within via the draft or college free agency. The veterans of the team are no longer older AHL journeyman like Jon DiSalvatore and Jeff Taffe but are players the team has brought along its own 'home grown' vets to teach the youngsters the ropes of professional hockey in Carson McMillan, Jarod Palmer, Matt Hackett, Chad Rau, Tyler Cuma and Chay Genoway. So just how good do the Houston Aeros look this year? (click on the link for the rest of the article)

It should be a good season for Houston too!

Who?

Also those are some of the worst photos of hockey players I have ever seen. They look like the pictures that a company takes of you at 6 AM on your first day of work for your badge.

I would like to come and see a Wild game live but seeing Aeros would also rock this season.

I hope some will go and show how crazy fans they have.

Mahbod's a solid ECHL guy, good ball hockey player. Nothing special though, probs won't be in the ECHL for long, I can't see him wanting that for a career.

I wish our AHL affiliate wasn't all the way down in Houston. I'd really like to see this team play this season.

You can actually watch them on AHL Live.

If you don't wanna pay, you can watch the game highlights.

I meant more that I wanted to see them live, but I will definitely be checking out the games/highlights from the interwebz.

Looks like Corbin Baldwin made a good impression at last month's prospect camp.

Good for him.

He will probably start the season in Orlando though.

I think liked what I seen from him at camp (if I remember correctly), but wasn't he playing forward? Or was I thinking of someone else? I know Caron was playing forward as well so it may just be a case of having too many D there...
