I now present...the WORST moments in Wild History.

Its kind of negative around here, so I think its in our best interest to rip and savage our team, and its decade of, uh...stuff.

I'll start with this one:

Zbynek Michalek for Dustin Wood and Erik Westrum.

Yep, that one really worked out for us.

I still love how Scott Pellerin lead the team in scoring with 39 points despite being traded at the deadline. That has to be its own separate worst moment.

Yeah, Michalek comes to mind.

My choice:

Dumping a 2nd to move up 3 spots to nab ... Colton Gillies!

Drafting Pouliot with the 4th overall pick in 2005 when there are several present all stars along side him. We are terrible at drafting.

Yep, you know you messed up when you decline to offer a 1st rounder a contract.

The 2004-2006 drafts. A monkey could have done a better job.

When the trade deadline came in 2008, and DR made his blockbuster deal to put the Wild over the top:

Chris Simon for a 6th rounder.

Cue exodus of stars from the Wild in the near future.

I also thought that spending a 2nd rounder on Matt Kassian was beyond ridiculous.

Moving up in the 2nd round to select Chris Heid.

I can't remember the specifics but that just popped up when reading this thread once again...

It was the third round, although then again he was picked twenty spots before Stephane Veilleux.

The funny thing about it is this: I grew up in Prior Lake, where Thelen is from. A Local Bar had a picture of him from Draft Day, with a blurb on him in a glass case, you know, as a nod to a local boy done good.

Funny, that pic ain't there anymore...

Signing Riley Emmerson to an Entry level contract. He never made it out of the Central Hockey League.

How about just Doug Reisborough (sp?)

starting with the thelen pick, roman volo, fiala, letting FA's walk for nothing when you KNOW the aren't resigning, two different drafts where you dump a 2nd and 3rd rounders to move up a few spots, not extending backstrom at the start of the season for 3ish mil, but waiting until he has an all star year so you pay him 6 mil, (this one pisses me off a TON) not trading Gabby before season started, waiting until he gets hurt, not taking anything for him at deadline, then AFTER the season is over say "it didn't look like we were going to get anything done in September". I swear to god if I ever see DR I'll tell him he sucks mega dong. Oh and the whole "manage expectations" thing. Just because we won our division one year, you shouldn't expect to even come close to the playoffs the next.

Plus f'in over our minor club, we have nothing to look forward too. Imagine having the blues ahl club right now. Then have the balls to think about firing JL because the team wasn't winning. Maybe it wasn't JL, he can't win with the trash you give him all the time.

All those picks rely soley on Tommy Thompson than anything.....

If I wanted any teams AHL club, it would be Washington's at this point. 2nd year in a row in the Calder Finals, and they won it last year. However, my point still stands from a previous post that no one in Minnesota GAF about how Houston does. They honestly need to relocate that team to Wisconsin or even Duluth or something! Get it close to the organization so we can actually watch them play....

I've thought for some time that the Wild and the Stars should swap AHL agreements; let the Stars have Houston, and the Wild take Iowa.

Yes, the Wild should have their AHL team close to home, it only makes sense.
