The purpose of this thread is to give us a place to talk about the other sports teams in Minnesota. They can be professional or college teams. I will keep a running score-tracker/record-tracker in the second post of this thread and will include anything you guys find pertinent.

For now, I'll include information about the Wild, Wolves, and Twins.

Ricky Rubio is a special player. I can only hope that the Wolves find a way to surround him with a great post player to help maximize his potential. Ideally, Derrick Williams becomes that player and although he is has looked a lot better this season I have my doubts.

^^^ I'm guessing you're not a K-Love fan? I know he has been kind of a diva this year but c'mon, he is the best power forward in the league and has shown the ability to put a team on his back. I will be so upset if we trade him, he is so young and is going to keep improving with is work ethic.

I agree with you on Rubio, though, I have his jersey and hope he is a T-Wolf for life; he will drastically improve his shot by next year too, mark my words.

I like D-Will, but he is a tweener and at this point I think it's safe to say that he is not what we though he was. That said, I think he can be a very good role player off the bench playing 15-20 minutes a game and I hope he can embrace that roll.

Other notes: I love Shved, he and Rubio will be an electrifying backcourt for years to come....we have to do everything we can to resign Pek this year, he's a machinge....Brandon Roy was one of Kahn's biggest mistakes as GM....We need to trade Ridnour right now because he is so average and is only taking playing time away from Shved.

Honestly, I forgot about Love for a second. Probably, because it's been awhile since we've seen Rubio and Love on the court together. I can't wait to see the two at 100%.

understandable, it's been such a disappointing year; this was the year the drought was supposed to end. Oh well, at least we will get a high draft pick who could be the final piece to the puzzle.

Williams is almost definitely going to be traded this offseason. Unfortunate, but not a huge loss since the Wolves have (arguably) the best PF in the NBA in Kevin Love and a very good backup in Dante Cunningham.

Really, the Wolves' only big roster weaknesses are a starting SG role-player (similar to OKC's Thabo Sefalosha or San Antonio's Danny Green) and a better backup C.

Pekovic/ Backup C (Chris Johnson maybe?)
Love/ Cunningham
Kirilenko/ Budinger
SG/ Shved (in the Manu/Harden super sub role)
Rubio/ Ridnour

... is actually a really good roster if it's healthy.

Yes, a great idea indeed! It is to bad that Love got hurt, I was excited for the Wolves this season. I think they had a shot at a 4-5 seed in the playoffs, injuries will do that.

The Wild have been intersting thus far. I realize they need time to gel and accustomed to each other. Hopefully they start clicking right around the playoffs.

There is a Twins thread in the baseball forum that would love some attention too. There is a Packer fan and a Saints fan whose loyalty in baseball resides in the Twins and they post there often.

I'll be heading to the Wild game tonight; I'm excited that two more of our young prospects are getting a look with the big club.


Johan Larsson - C/W


Jason Zucker - LW

The Wild currently have five players under the age of 22 with the team.

D - Jonas Brodin [19]
F - Mikael Granlund [20]
F - Johan Larsson [20]
F - Jason Zucker [21]
G - Darcy Kuemper [22]

F - Charlie Coyle had a six game stint with the team earlier this year as well, and he's also 20 years old. The future of this team looks very bright.

Followed the MNSU - Maverick football team this year during their playoff run and undefeated season.

Could just be because I'm a student here. Laughing
