No question about it. Man, that kid is amazing. Now I see what people are talkin' about. He's going to have one hell of a career; I just wish to god we'd taken him when we had the chance. I, uh... don't suppose you guys would take Pouliot for him now, would you?

OK, OK, I was just askin' is all. No need to laugh at me. Cripes.

Great game by the Wild. I may have been way off on PMB. He could put up 80 this year with ease. That line is one of, if not the best in hockey right now.

Rolston = Hart Trophy

Not gonna happen, but there's no question that he's been the team's best player so far (along with Manny). All this talk about the summer aquisitions, and it's the good old Rolston still leading the way. I think JL should just give him the permanent captaincy- f that rotating bs when you have a guy like Rolston already leading the team.

Pretty solid game against a flat team. The Bouchard-Rolston-White line was on fire. Demitra seemed kinda lost without Gaborik. Obviously, they're awesome together. Thankfully, we're not a 1 line team anymore. The big question is who should play with Demitra when Gabbie is out of the line-up? Radio and ... ??

Despite the Kings pressure in the 3rd, we kept them to the perimeter mostly. For long-time Wild fans, this is our old familiar rope-a-dope routine that worked so well in 03/04. The Kings expended a large amount of energy, but couldn't really get the puck off the boards.

Kopitar is naztee. Its going to be a rough season in LaLa land for Kings fans, but Kopitar, O'Sullivan and Camalleri will be the bright spots. However, this means another high draft pick.

Burns is back playing wing. Oi.

How did O'Sullivan look? I noticed he had no shots, whereas he usually seems to lead the Kings in shots.

To be honest I didn't really notice O'Sullivan until he served a penalty in the third.
Granted I was in the rafters but....

The Big E, good points about the difference from last year to this year regarding the Wild.
I saw the NHL hockey segment on ESPNEWS and Barry Melrose made a good point.

The Minnesota Wild undoubtedly are better thanks to those offseason moves and they have more depth
(especially offensively) to compensate for any losses of key weapons like Marian Gaborik. It showed last night.
What a nice win it was! By the way, the Kings got lucky on their only goal because Manny Fernandez
got caught out of position after the initial save and with traffic in the crease, he just couldn't get back in time.

Either way, it was solid victory for the Wild. I totally disagree with TSN's power rankings with Dallas atop their list.
Buffalo should be #1, Minnesota #2, San Jose and Anaheim battling for the 3rd and 4th spot AND THEN Dallas.

Hopefully the Wild can pay back the Ducks for their lone loss by winning this weekend.

Generally Lemaire gets the matchups he wants, so if Bouchard did play less near the end of the game, it would be because LA was double-shifting. Shift chart doesn't make it look like he played less in the third, though.
