Harding and Brodziak's contracts are up, Backstrom will be bought out, Stewart won't be back and was invisible in the playoffs anyway, Koivu Pominville and Vanek all have NTCs and you don't trade away top six centermen for peanuts (Koivu).

The Wild are basically stuck with their high priced vets.

Wild have some bad contracts with no trade clauses, no prospects that will come in and make an impact, and little cap room to really do anything with.

Fletcher and Co are really going to have to assess this team and get creative (Like the Clutterbuck/Niederreiter move).

Another year of Koivu/Pominville/Vanek. Whew. Another year of not getting past Chicago.

The Twins and Vikings are going to have to take this out on Chicago. Its the only way I'll feel better.

The Twins have held up their end of the bargain thus far.

Losing to Chicago doesn't really bother me as Chicago is a great team, but completely laying down and getting swept is ridiculous.

There's still quite a few young guys with upside left. Granlund, Dumba, and Zucker, etc.

Sign dub's, get lucky in the draft and find a goal sniper. This team could be as elite as any.

Main concern is Sutter not regressing. Dumba will continue to improve.

Very few elite teams are made through free agency.

Parise-Granlund-Zucker
Stewart-Coyle-Niederreiter
Vanek-Koivu-Pominville
Fontaine-Haula-Schroeder

Seems like a lot of our forwards are flexible, can play a bunch of different positions. This would be what I would want to see at the beginning of next year.

Even if they find a good sniper in the draft, they won't contribute next year.

Big Knockers gotta knock...and apparently the Blackhawks' did, while the Wild's did not.

How sad is it that the Twins are 3 games over .500 for the first time since 2010? Shocked

How sad is it that I had just legally become an adult about a month before the last time they were in the World Series? Laughing

Very. The offense is pretty fun to watch though.

How sad is it I partied with the Minnesota Twins at the superbowl party they threw in 92 when it was here and they were my age. You will never meet a more awesome man then Al Newman. Still lives in Minnesota.

All the free Budweiser you could drink and electric jello you could slurp.

In my prime.

Al Newman is an awesome dude. I never met him personally, but he always seemed like a character.

My only brush with greatness was the time that Kirby came through my drive-thru at the McDonalds' I worked at in Bloomington...Laettner came through too a few times. Laughing
