Did I really say in my last post that if the Wild scored 3 they would beat the Sens? And then did I really turn the channel when they built a 3-0 lead, thinking my prophecy was spot-on? I most certainly did, and the team gave up 5 unanswered and lost. They're now in a fight to get to the 8th spot in the West and are soon embarking on a massive road trip. Things do not look good.
What to do? That's the question. I say unload Backstrom for a scorer and a high draft pick if you can get it. I say deal Johnsson and youth. And I say try and sign Marian to a 1 year contract for around $6.0m. I know it's purely speculation at this point but I believe that Harding can be a capable number 1 netminder. I think it's time to blow this season up and start reloading for 2009-10.
