Minnesota Wild: Week In Review- Analyzing the Minnesota Wild's first week of play

Well, we're five games into the Minnesota Wild's season, and the results so far have been mediocre at best. The team's record sits at 2-2-1, which is OK. The problem is, they have just one point in their past three contests( two regulation losses, and an overtime loss to St. Louis). So, panic is beginning to set in here in Minnesota. With that said, let's get to three observations and some quick hits I have about the Wild after the first week of the season.

Minnesota Wild VS Nashville live blog

Tonight's Minnesota Wild VS Nashville Predators game marks the first time that Wild free agent signee Ryan Suter faces his former team. So without further ado, let's get to the game.

Michel's Ramblings on everything but the Wild

Since my gig at HookedOnHockey has ramped up (http://hookedonhockeymagazine.com/minnesota-wild-victorious-1-0-over-dallas-stars/), I have not had the time to write about anything else besides hockey. With a few moments to spare before I start another live blog on tonight's Minnesota Wild vs Nashville Predators game, I thought it would be prudent to do another ramblings on non-Wild related subjects. Let's get to the ramblings brought to you by Ticket King, with the Alabama Shakes (a great fucking rock n roll band) providing the background music.

Wild vs Stars Recap- Harding Shines

--Reviewing the Minnesota Wild's 1-0 victory over the Dallas Stars --
The Minnesota Wild, led by goaltender Josh Harding and forward Zach Parise, shut out the Dallas Stars 1-0 on Sunday night. This victory was especially sweet for Harding, as this marked his first NHL game since being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The fact that he was able to shut out the Stars, while playing in his first game with the disease, is a remarkable story and accomplishment.

Minnesota Wild vs Colorado Avalanche- Live Blog/Diary

  • 8:00 PM- Finally, the wait is over. After being locked out for over four months the puck is finally about to drop on the 2012/2013 Minnesota Wild season. Now that the puck is about to drop, all of the lockout garbage is rendered moot. Yes, it was a terrible ordeal for the sport. But, the game is back. And instead of bitching about the lockout, hockey fans can now bitch about their team. Which, in all honesty, is exactly what was wanted all along. Anyway, the following is a live blog/diary of the Minnesota Wild VS Colorado Avalanche game. (That was the last reference to the lockout in this post, I swear.)

Analyzing the Minnesota Wild's 2013 Schedule

  • For a look at the entire Minnesota Wild schedule:http://shagsonsports.blogspot.com/2013minnesota-wild-schedule.html 
  • The Minnesota Wild open the season with three straight home games, and six of their first eight games are at home. This is the perfect opportunity to pick up some early points, while at the same time gaining an idea of how to play with each other(#hockey porn) on the ice. As mentioned before, I expect the Wild to struggle just a bit to start the season, due to all the new pieces joining the team, and so little time to prepare for the season. But to open with three consecutive home games is more than the Wild could have hoped for. Now it is up to the team to take advantage of the schedule and produce some wins early in the season. They will need them as the season unfolds.

Minnesota Wild Season Preview Part 2: Q&A TIme

For part one click on the link above.

By the time the puck drops on the Minnesota Wild season, January 19th, it will have been over eight long months since they last took the ice in an NHL contest. A lot has happened since the Wild lost 4-1 to the Phoenix Coyotes on April 7, 2012; Zach Parise and Ryan Suter signed with the club as free agents; the NHL lockout (remember that?) robbed the team of half its games; team owner, Craig Leipold,-reportedly a hawk during the lockout- was involved in a shouting match with free agent defenseman Chris Campoli during the intense labor negotiations; elite prospect Mikael Granlund made his long-awaited North American pro debut; and, last but not least, goaltender Josh Harding was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. With that said, let's get to the second part of the 2013 Minnesota Wild season preview, and answer some questions.

Minnesota Wild 2013 Season Preview Part 1: Line Combinations and Defensive Pairings

2013 Minnesota Wild Preview Part 1: Line Combinations and Defensive Pairings

The Wild enter the abbreviated 2013 season with high expectations; thanks to the free agent signings of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter and the arrival of star prospect, Mikael Granlund. Will the team meet these expectations?  Will they succumb to the pressure and fail to produce the expected results? What will the lines look like? What prospects will make the team out of training camp? Can the Wild win the Northwest Division? Those are just a few of the many questions surrounding the Wild this season. Let's try to answer some of those questions.
