Healthy Foy makes quick trip up to the Wild

Injuries gave Minnesota prospect Matt Foy a chance to crack the line-up when he was recalled on Oct. 17.

I like what I saw from Foy in his stint with the Wild - good hustle, size and speed.

Sorta the opposite from me. He seemed invisible in the game. When Dupuis was there, we all hated him because he kept missng his shots, but the fact that he was able to create a chance is overlooked. I like Foy but don't see him anymore than a 4th liner at most. He is a career AHLer, not a NHLer

Thats my opinion

Kid has speed and some size to go with it. I think he could stick. It'd be nice to have another hitter. Hopefully he keeps working hard in the AHL and improves his consistency.

Based on what Lemaire said and what his teammates said, I don't think the Wild expect Foy to be a career AHLer. Like some of the other posters already said, they like his size, his skating, his physical play and that he can score. I think they expect him to be more like what Sami Pahlsson is for the Ducks.

I feel he could eventually be with the Wild full time. I don't know about how the rest of you feel, but I like him better than Veilleux, Weinhandl, and Dupuis to name a few.

I totally agree with this. Pascal could use his wheels to find the gaps and clearings to take his shot, just that the guy tries to shoot so hard, he seems to fan on it like 90% of the time. Need to get him a heavier stick.

As of right now, I still like Dupuis better than Foy though.

With the Wild a dramatically improved team, there is less room for players like Foy in my opinion. A larger, slightly slower version of Vielleux. Since V is FREAKIN' fast, that's not a knock on Foy. What it does say is that I now see the filler players as Weinhandl and Dupuis. If Weinhandl fails to show much, I think Voloshenko would be the good fit this season.

Imagine Mikko Koivu with a sniper, Voloshenko, on one wing and a digger dog like Parrish on the other. He'd have a guy to setup up which he's shown he's great at and a reason to shoot cuz Parrish would dig for the rebounds.

Imagine 3 dangerous lines!
