Looking forward to see the Wild Grind these Ducks, get your 1st win.

When they reach Winnipeg we'll de-feather what you missed.

They're a year removed from being a bottom-5 team.

They were completely embarrassed and overmatched against the Avalanche (who aren't exactly a top team themselves) on opening night. They scratched Selanne. And they traded Bobby Ryan for, admittedly, a few good pieces, but it was still largely a long-term rebuilding move.

My "expectation" of an easy win isn't so much that I think it's likely (because inexplicably we always manage to make the Ducks look like a contender), but that it's unacceptable to walk away with less than two points tonight. We can't give away games to middling teams like the Ducks.

Their top line left winger is a sixth-rounder who has 2 goals, 1 assist in 15 career NHL games. He might be a good prospect but their first line is anything but stable right now.

Heading out to the game. Will post my thoughts on it once I get back like I did with the opener.

I don't know what it is but I feel like we can't have a true rivalry yet with the Jets or Blackhawks because our fans are all too nice & supportive of eachother's teams.. Like even last year in the playoffs I didn't like seeing the Wild lose but I was like "eh, it's the Blackhawks, they're cool"...I still remember how appreciative all their fans were towards us when we beat Dallas to get them in the playoffs a few years ago and them being supportive of the Wild in other instances. I can't help it, I like those guys...

Now with the Jets, I feel like our teams are kinda like brothers, unlike Columbus who's our dirty evil twin. ( I do not like Columbus) I look at Winnipeg & their fans & I think "those guys are a lot like us. I like them too".. Both lost our original team, both just stoked to have hockey back, both are very supportive of our new teams and both relatively new teams in the league.. I can't help but wish them well and hope they find success.

Granted that all may change very easily after a few dirty hits & injured players in games vs eachother (*cough* PMB) & few playoff battles but for right now, The Blackhawks & the Jets teams & their fans are A-ok in my book..

I say our 3 teams fan bases should join up together, be supportive of each other & run this division! Then in turn we turn our backs on and Avs, Stars & Blues teams & their fanbases and give them the business... They'll never know what to make of our 3 team alliance during the regular season & we can all 3 make the playoffs! (Then as is tradition, all bets are off)

oh, I forgot about the Predators but it's like ya, who gives a ****. I'm indifferent about them. They can be the loner. We'll talk about them when they get over Suter... They act like he's the Devil when IMHO, I think what Shea Weber did to them was worse.

Anywho, the point of that lengthy post was "thank you". Just return the favor & wear down a few teams for us when you have the chance!

All I'm saying is that if I have to pick 3 teams from our new divison to make the playoffs it's us, the Blackhawks & Jets...

I sure as hell don't want to see the Stars or Avalanche make it. I've just never liked the Blues & my indifference for the Preds omits them from my list of playoff hopefuls..

I'm doubting Dumba will replace Spurge on the 2nd PP unit. Maybe if Heater doesn't show up again on the PP they might move Spurge up to the 1st unit, move Pominville to forward, then put Dumba on the 2nd.

Walz keeps calling Hiller "this kid" even though Hiller is 31.

How has Granlund looked this year? And Coyle?


Anaheim´s defense was trash against Colorado, I think Wild should have a pretty good chance on this one.

I hope they both destroy eachother. Regrettably points must be awarded, so I guess I want the Ducks to walk out of there on crutches with a regulation win.
