Thank God It's Over Part III (The Official Offseason Talk Thread)

Things from the end of the last thread

2. Lack of Defense - Even though they will have Suter and Gilbert, the rest of the team still needs to improve the defence and most of the defensive players are rookies. (Besides being Canadian, not actually true. Shows Stempniak burning Scandella)

3. Signing Zach Parise, Ryan Suter. (That's the reason - his explanation with no video is "Even though they signed the two biggest free agents on the market the Wild have lacked real starpower since their superstar sniper Marian Gaborik bolted in free agency. And Suter won't have Weber or Rinne by his side. And losing head coach Jacques Lemaire." There's a few WTF statements and no arguments.)

4. Expecting too much from rookie Granlund. (In quotes "All fun aside, Granlund is a treat to watch and has all the skills to be a first line center in the NHL. The unfortunate part is that Minnesota may have him slated to be their opening-day second-line center. A line that would most likely include him playing with Zach Parise or Dany Heatley. That's a lot of pressure for a 20 year-old. And if they think he's going to be the one to take them all the way they're dreaming. Just like they thought with Heatley and Setoguchi.")

5. Their lines ("Minnesota's top line might have of Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu, and Dany Heatley. And the second line might have Setoguchi, Cullen and Bouchard, the third and fourth lines are very thin."

"Clutterbuck is a great physical force, but don't expect his line with Kyle Brodziak and a lot of scoring because they have been struggling. Same goes for the fourth line, neither of the three are offensively intimidating in any aspect at all."

"I'll tell you guys an example with winnipeg's 4th line Antti Miettinen, Alexander Burmistov, and Chris Thorburn/Eric Fehr over the Clutterbuck-Brodziak-Johnson line. Then with Vancouver's 3rd line of Mason Raymond, Manny Malhotra, and Zack Kassian over the Setoguchi-Cullen-Bouchard line any day without a doubt."

"So those are my reasons, comments and say if you agree with me or disagree, or say of what you think, are the wild going to make the playoffs? well i don't, and they spend too much money with the signing of Parise and Suter")

All errors are his.

Shortened version: We shouldn't acquire players just because they are from Minnesota. And if Martin is such an albatross to Pens' fans, why would we want him?

If anyone's wondering the origin of this rumor, it comes from a banned rumor monger whose sources say something and aren't multiple letters.

Like I said....fletcher isn't gonna move a healthy Heatley for Mr. Unibrow and Martin. Not when he may have his wheels back and could be teamed up with Parise and Koivu. We added talent this month to help push guys like Heatley further. Makes no sense to ship off last year's MVP, because it'd start to wash out the moves we just made to better the team. Russo would have picked up on this. Stupid rumor.....worse than a rumor. Who is that dingleberry anyway?

Aren't we at 49 contracts anyways? Doubt we'd want to be at 50.

Even though the Wild just signed my favorite player outside of the organization, I quit if they trade for Dupuis...

Never mind that the player in such a hypothetical trade would be Heatley.

Oh god, no, no, and hell no to Dupuis. I'll take Brunette back before I take Pascal back.

Not to mention, what would be the point to add another defenseman?

Thank God, it won't happen.

I love how Russo just gets indignant while on vacation. Just ripping on it on Twitter.
