Number 8: Willie Mitchell ~ Mitchell was the team's best defensemen on the pre-lockout Wild. While Willie didn't score often, or really EVER, but he was a shutdown machine on the PK. Willie really proved his worth during the 2003 Cup run and his stellar play garned him much national recognition. During the 2005-06 season he desired to sign a long term deal with the Wild, but DR thought his pricetag of roughly 3.0m per season was too high. Willie was dealt to Dallas in a trade that brought fan favorite Martin Skoula to the club. Mitchell eventually got his asking price from Vancouver and DR had to overspend to get Kim Johnsson.
Beer #8: Miller High Life (Light) ~ this is my bowling alley beer. An American original, nothing says "pick up the split" like this brew. Three or four go down with little difficulty.
