I hate to point out mistakes, but the Flames have a little more than 8 points and a four win season so far.

Fixed
And always feel free to point out mistakes.
Thanks for your assistance

Also updated that Stalock is getting the nod and not Dubnyk tonight.

Tonight should be fun and of course it is always a treat for me to see Johnny Gaudreau play.

You should change the title of this article to "Will Bruce B keep his job, and when will the Wild realize there is no chemistry with this team and it's time to rebuild?" CHOKE CHOKE CHOKE CHOKE

Boudreau isn't the problem here. Its the players. Back to back seasons of 100+ points, a feat that has only been done 4 times in Wild history, and 2 of them under boudreau.
Its a team full of aging vets, surrrounded by passive complementary players. Anyone not named Granlund should be on the block.

Actually, depending on what Granlund would fetch in a trade, I say EVERYONE is available. The package for Granlund might just jump-start the rebuild. Problem is, the aging vets are the ones that need to be traded, and they can't...besides Staal. And as much as I like Eric Staal and think he is a class act, I really see him on another roster come February. And he is not the vet I would want to trade away at first. It's the Suter, Koivu...and even Parise, that need to be ushered out.

Watching that Calgary game last night, it really showed what team speed can do, and everyone on the Wild appeared to be dragging pianos behind them.

Forgot to ask...has anyone heard how bad Koivu was injured last night? There could be a blessing in disguise in this. Not that I EVER want a player to get injured (well, maybe Aaron Rogers, but that's a different board) and especially not a Wild player...it looks like Kunin is finally finding his legs and game in Iowa. Will he be called up soon if Koivu is going to be out for any length of time?
