    Re: Wild about The Wild - Official Playoff Thread!

    Well, shoot.
    That didn't turn out so well.

    But, so what??
    I'm still encouraged!

    The Wild had the most points in their short history, won the most games in their short history, had a defenseman (Carney) finish with the best +/- in their short history and certainly fired up this sports fan over the past couple of months!

    Lots of good young talent (Gaborik, Burns, Bouchard, Koivu) sprinkled with some strong veterans (Parrish, Demitra, Carney) and a real find at goal in Backstrom - although Harding will probably be the future between the pipes for 'em.

    Some work to do this summer to get a tad bigger on the blue line and to make sure that Backstrom (who is a FA, not sure about UFA or RFA) doesn't leave.


    I'm certainly more excited about the Wild in 2007-08 than the Vikes.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    It was a good season, Wild!

    Thanks for the fun!

    I agree that the future looks bright for this organization.

    As long as they can lock up Backstrom, and pick up a few big guys to knock opposing forwards around, next year is going to be exciting.

    They have a young prospect goalie in Harding that should turn out nicely as a backup or eventual co-tender or replacement for Backstrom.

    What happened to the Wild's other goalie?
    (not the one we traded last year) Forgive me, I don't follow the Wild real closely.

    His name is Manny Fernandez.
    He started the season as the number one, but got injured in early December and hasn't really played since.
    Backstrom was signed as a FA out of the Finnish League last year and steppep up to the task of being #1 with vigor and had great success.
    Manny is now trade bait, as I understand it.
