He's not half bad for a 21-year old. Has a SV% of 89.7 this season, but he also has a shutout and has played only 8 games so far (4-4-0). He reminds me of Kuemper actually in that he is a big, positional goaltender but needs to work on his reflexes still.

Thank you. I decided to use the new logo, even though the previous one was better.

Wild win 4-2.

Because that's what happened when I played some scrub in NHL 14 last night. Koivu gets the go-ahead with ~4 minutes left.

I agree.. I was just wondering because you guys stole him from my hometown team couple of years ago..

I remember him as a very bright kid that played with his heart outside his jersey when he played for us at the age of only 18-19...

And if that wasnt enough.. You stole Antti Ore aswell!

I'm still waiting on pins and needles for that Baha Men Greatest Hits album to drop.

Oh, and I'm not picturing this game going well for us. Even if we manage to win, I'm sure we're going to lose at least one meaningful player to injury. Just a bad feeling.

Tonight begins a tough stretch of games against some very good teams. I'm not very optimistic:

Blues win 4-0

good thing if it ends in a close game. Sobotka with point(s) as usual, wild killer

I look for the Wild to play very hard tonight. It's no secret that the Blues are a little tough.

I'm especially looking for El Nino to play his game today and get right into the crease. Hopefully the rest of the team follows his lead.

As long as we don't get blown out and show we can compete, id be very happy with an OT/SO loss.

Haha nice GDT. I hope Wild can draft Kaapo Kahkonen with their 2nd or 3rd round pick. He will be #1 goalie in the NHL one day.

So Granlund's out for this game or is that more a gametime thing?

I'd be happy with us getting to OT. I really just hope we don't get our ***** kicked in reg. Blues seem to be making it a habit this year to beat the tar out of the other teams in reg, like by 3+ goals.... ******** and their scoring, and their goaltending, and their blue line... Stupid Blues... And their great coaching... That man's amazing at matching lines and players up as the game progresses...

Don't have a good feeling about this one. St. Louis has been ridiculous this year. Hope we don't get blown out on national TV. I'd be fine with a shootout loss tonight
