Remember when the Wild were 6 points ahead in the Northwest Division race? Remember when a Wild blogger wrote that the Wild were "the best team in the NHL?" I do, I surely do and that is why yesterday's 2-1 loss to Calgary hurts so much. Six points up and now they're fighting for the 8th seed. Miikka Kipprusoff was his usual stellar self, stopping nearly everything in sight. Let's see if they can turn things around this week with road games in the Southeast Division.
What are the chances DR will make a major trade by tomorrow's deadline? I'd say about 2%. He's more likely to hold the line and not make a single move. Who can blame him anyways with the white-hot futures that Benoit Pouliot, Petr Kalus and Danny Irmen have? (Yes, sarcasm a-plenty.)
