Matt Hackett made 39 saves in his first win as an Amerk. Game's first star.

Hackett will do well in the East.

not worried about him being more of a bust than a #1 but this doesn't help my positive mood towards the Wild right now.

Luckily the Wild will get 2 goals in the second and give one up late in the 3rd and will win 2-1

yay

Sorry added the

Goalies are fickle as hell. It seemed like everyone here couldn't wait to get rid of Hackett. Like he was Holmqvist.

Larsson or Hackett?

I can't wait to see the monster Buffalo is building.

I think Buffalo has a top 10 prospect group personally after their trades and after this year. They are going to be a beast in the East in a few years. Hell I think after this season they'll have a better group of prospects and young players than Minnesota

I wouldn't go that far.

Grigorenko is the real deal though.

After this year. I like Armia, Foligno, McCabe,, Grigorenko and Girgenson. They have a solid group but with 2 1sts, 2 2nds and 3 2rds next year. Dangerous.

Top 10 now? No
Top 10 after the draft? I would think so
Better than MIN? Not sure that its possible unless a good number of your guys graduate

After the draft, yes

Minnesota has Coyle, Zucker, Brodin and Granlund as their top 4 and the hype behind Granlund is crashing fast.

I think the only guy they don't have in their system is a Brodin type but that can change really quickly.
