He's not even worth booing. We should be cheering him every time he's on the ice because of how big a liability he is.

Yay for daylight saving time starting 3 weeks earlier in NA. Just as I got used to making time zone adjustments off the top of my head.

Coyle should really be taken off the first line. Im not saying he's playing bad, but he sure as hell isnt getting anything done. Would be a perfect 3rd liner imo.

Any word on Granlund?

Curious to see what kind of roster Yeo pulls out this time. And I agree with Gaps about the Koivu. He seems slower than usually and has some coordination problems, he isn't 100%. Let's hope it's nothing too serious.

Guessing Hackett will get the start tonight. Fine by me. The more interesting question is who will be scratched. Does Yeo think having Rupp in makes us tough enough so that Konopka can be scratched or will Granlund and Bouchard sit again? My guess is that at least one of them will play.


If they'd given something to Koivu last night, they really have to re-think the dosage. Being wobbly, unfocused and uncoordinated makes him more vulnerable to possible additional injuries and the other teams will figure out something's wrong with him soon enough if he keeps on playing with a FO% of 33.333 and is barely able to stay on his feet all of a sudden despite usually having good balance. If there's nothing that can be done about it, I'd prefer they put him on IR and take care of whatever it is properly. It would damage the team, but some other team will take him out eventually with a borderline hit if he keeps this up, so it's more or less inevitable if he's truly playing injured.

This is why I HATE this time of the year. Why can't we all turn the clocks the same week?

Yes, if we win this game we take the division lead. That doesn't seem like falling behind to me.

I'm so not sure how this will end. I'm planning to bet 5€ - 15€ to this game but I really REALLY have no idea how to bet. Maybe I'll bet Vancouvers win, and whatever happens I'm happy.

If you place a bet for Canucks it's a win-win situation . I've done this couple of times.

You can see our improvement during multiple series this season, including the Canucks. Last night I wasn't even nervous that the Preds would score on us and even though they did, it was still one goal. Last two times against the Preds I was nervous every time they were in our defensive area. We have improved slowly but surely. I honestly think we take this game tonight. We will be division leaders by nights end!

The Wild aren't having a morning skate, but according to Urheilulehti's Savolainen (Finnish hockey writer stationed in Minnesota, usually a reliable source), yesterday's scratches (PMB, Granlund and Prosser) and Hackett are on the ice. His guess is that they'll keep the same lines as last night and that Bäckström is starting, but none of this is official at this time. Apparently he didn't know the official morning skate had been canceled, so he's the only reporter there.

Savolainen from Urheilulehti the only reported @ unofficial morning ice with the Wild, only Granlund, Bouchard, Prosser & Hackett there skating. Could this indicate that they are again scratches or just warming up?

I believe it will be the same lineup as yesterday. Only ones on ice are PMB, Granlund and Prosser + Hacks.

Info from Samuel Savolainen

E: Wayyyyyy tooo slowww.

I'll be at the game tonight, if Hackett does the business it should be a good tilt.
