Many might think this will be a walk in the park but the truth is farthest from that.

The Wild, despite their current spot in the Western Conference standing, in my opinion , are poised to kick ass in the second half. I'm actually surprised they are in the current state that they are. No, I did not foresee their goaltending gloom. But like Hockey Wilderness' The_Noogie puts it:

Just when you thought the Wild were making a big push for a great draft pick, they appear to pull the rug out from under you. Thus is the life of a Wild fan. I guess I really shouldn't be complaining. I do enjoy discussing wins more than losses so this new found glory is a bit of a refreshing reprieve from what we have been seeing of late from this squad. I do have every confidence this team will do just enough to secure themselves a horrible draft pick while not making the playoffs.

The Wild do not suck. No way.


No matter! This isn't the fucking Sabres. Canucks had better be primed for this one.
