UPDATE: Pateryn Surgery Out 6 Weeks

October 1, 2019 - 11:08 AM ET

As expected JT Brown was waived and Victor Rask is the 13 forward. The Rask contract of course was the deciding factor in the decision for Rask over Brown and for that matter the more intriguing Gerry Mayhew or even Drew Stafford. The battle between Carson Soucy and Louie Belpedio initially has g...

Guerin Era Begins With Wild

October 3, 2019 - 9:51 AM ET

The Bill Guerin Era officially begins tonight in Nashville. So what should we expect from this Minnesota Wild club in 2019-20? The word from all of the players is that it is a very different feel around the club as Guerin is very visible and he brings an heir of intensity that drives the players....

Wild Need to Turn Things Around

October 9, 2019 - 11:14 AM ET

So now that we have had a little time to let the first two Wild games sink in what can we expect in the immediate Wild future? The first game gave us small glimpses of what could be when the Wild are fully engaged. Unfortunately they were overmatched throughout much of the contest. Game two sa...

Offense Needs To Show Up in Winnipeg

Cause for Concern

October 11, 2019 - 3:10 PM ET

I find it interesting when the post game comments center around last night's Wild game being the most complete 60 minutes that they have played to date. The fact is the team is 0 and 3 and despite having leads in two of the three have been largely outplayed by significant margin in all three game...

Wild Host Depleted Pens in Home Opener

October 12, 2019 - 5:13 PM ET

Tonight the Wild finally get a home game as the play host to a battered Penguins squad. Pittsburgh will be without Evgeni Malkin, Alex Galchenyuk, Nick Bjugstad, and Bryan Rust. Last season the Wild struggled on home ice, so getting a win tonight is all that much more important. Regardless of...

Ready to Blow...Up

October 13, 2019 - 12:29 PM ET

When will it all come unglued? The record is 0 and 4 and the team has been only slightly competitive in each if the first four ganes. The lone bright spot is the defense which has been the only source if offense the team has to show for through the first week and change of the NHL season. L...
