2 times they took it back there for an extended period. I can understand 1-5 seconds, but getting close to 10 is pushing it.

Nothing amateur about the booing, it was deserved. Taking it behind the net to set up a play for a couple seconds is ok, but then sitting there for 10-15 seconds...you will get booed for that in ANY arena!

Oh I certainly remember him getting knocked around last night. Looked like he had a target on him. I was impressed with how he kept getting back up though.

Astounding?! Way over the top.

and i didn't think spurge looked any better tonight.

Maybe it's a "Dallas" thing. I can remember yelling, "Move it already, Princess!", at Modano a couple of times when he'd sit back there.

Agreed. I'm afraid he won't get up one of these times if teams keep targeting him like that. They were seriously trying to concuss the kid.

Yeah, but for what it's worth, I have that same fear about Granlund and Butch. Unfortunately, it's something we're gonna have to get use to with the way the league is now.

Eh, Minnesotans need to get over themselves and their ridiculous unwritten rules of crowd etiquette. I'm tired of getting dirty looks at Wild games for booing a bad call or having a conversation with my buddy. With how silent and milquetoast our crowds have been for years now, I was thrilled just to be able to hear the crowd through the TV. Beggars can't be choosers; a bit of passion and energy is not a bad thing at this point.

I'm just glad every team is rusty right around now. Okay, was it just me or is Gilbert our most physical defenseman? that doesn't seem right.

Yes, I love goaltenders that are great positionally, have a quick and confident glove, are athletic with good lateral movement, and can control their rebounds.

Pretty much.

Also, I didn't hate Prosser. Which is a first. Good on him.

Wild still get hemmed up in their own zone waaaaay too much. We did have a few nice shifts where we had zone time, but was tough to shots.

Clutter and Seto looked good and fast. Heater looked super slow.

Don't get me wrong I do too. But with them being offensive players and a little bigger than spurge, it's not as bad IMO. They are the next best targets. If I'm an opposing coach my advantage every game is when spurgeon is on the ice because of his shear stature. Teams are going to put a bullseye on him every game and I just worry for his safety in the nhl.
