There are only a handful of days in Minneapolis when a person can say "damn! It's wicked hot today." Tomorrow is going to be one of those days with a high around 97 degrees F. For those readers in Canada, 97 degrees F is wicked hot.
Not much new on the Wild front, although I'd like to give a quick opinion regarding the recent signing of one Pierre-Marc Bouchard. Bouchard and the club reached agreement on a 1 year contract for around 2.3 million yesterday. I go back and forth on PMB, some days I think he's the next Adam Oates, and then other days I think he's Scott Bjugstad. Today I'm in the latter's camp. PMB really needs to assert himself this year and become more than just a fancy stickhandler that's got a dazzling spin-o-rama. PMB needs numbers like 30-60-90 and then, only then will I want him to sign the 4-year, $12.0m contract he's seeking.
