I doubt both teams keep winning like this. We're both bound to lose eventually, I think. It might not work that we play each other in the first round, but it just has a sense of inevitability for me. I can't explain it rationally.

Maybe 2nd round?

I agree both teams have to lose eventually, but that doesn't mean losing will become a habit for either team. They could both afford to lose a game here and there and still maintain their overall positions.

Parise is kinda scary, one yank I would prefer to avoid.

If the Wild wins the NW and doesn't win the Stanley Cup, it means they choked BTW

No, it's if you win the President's trophy and then don't win the cup you choked.

Oh sure. Now we all start getting along since it's our last month left together in the same division.

Meh, honestly I think Wild fans only had a problem with Bertuzzi, Cooke and Ruutu. Once those 3 were gone... not been much reason to hate anything about the Nucks either. (Oh, and Ohlund's axe chop that broke Mikko's leg too)

Some Nuck fans got a bit obnoxious about calling the Wild incessantly boring over the years, but even that's gone away for the most part.

Didn't mean anything by it. Just being sarcastic. Personally, I've gotten into some battles with a few Nucks' fans, but at the same time, have also gotten along with some great Nuckers too.

Dang this battle of the NW is intense though. TaLoN knows I'm a bit of a Debbie Downer, so he won't be surprised by this. But I think the Wild's winning streak comes to an end tonight. Although it'd be cool to see a win considering Backstrom is going to be watching this game on the tv back in Minny. If the Wild want to gain some ground, they've got to take advantage of the games in hand on Vancouver.

Yeah, I pretty much take all of your gloom and doom predictions with a grain of salt these days. You're on a long Oh-fer streak ever since you claimed we'd not even get a glance from Parise and Suter when they hit Free Agency.

No honest Canucks fan has confidence in this group to get through the playoffs.

They're winning, but aren't really doing it with a sound defensive system and potent offense..They're literally banking on the goalie for every win.

1st round exit.

Most of our wins this year has been, "?????? how did we win?".

That's how divisions are SUPPOSED to be! Just further proof Minnesota has been in the wrong division for years. The hate will ooze in the new Norris division though... I can sense it coming in the future already!

Kesler to add a boost, and hopefully something...anything...transpires at the deadline!

If the interwebs had existed in the days of the old Norris... I'm sure the same would have been said between North Stars/B.Hawks/Detroit/Blues/Toronto fans.
