You gotta be getting close to 40 right?

That would put him in his early 40s if he graduated in 1992.

I was 10 months and old for the '87 series.....don't remember much about it. Laughing

Yes, MNPackFan is correct. You probably remember about as much about the '87 WS as I do the Vikings Super Bowl vs the Dolphins. Laughing

Yeah, while I was alive, I'll have to apologize that at 9 months old not much of that 91 Twins team stuck with me Laughing
I remember back to the early 2000's when the Twins were a fun bunch, the Wolves with KG, the Wild and their run to the WCF. Myself and all my friends were all so happy and optimistic, now we are all jaded.

A set of previously unreleased tracks by Prince are going on sale to mark the one-year anniversary of the musician's death. One, "Deliverance," was put on iTunes and Apple Music on Tuesday. Five other tracks will be released on Friday and a disc version will be released on June 2.

The overall EP, entitled "Deliverance", features six songs recorded by Prince between 2006 and 2008 with fellow musician Ian Boxill, who spent the last year completing the compositions, arrangements and production, independent record company RMA, which is releasing the music, said in a statement.

The value of his musical legacy, including an extensive cache of unreleased recordings said to be locked in a vault, has been estimated by some to exceed a $500 million, when factoring in future royalties, retail sales and commercial rights.

Wild won!

I think the series will basically come down to this (and has come down to this thus far), whomever scores first wins. I think if the Wild keep scoring first, they'll win, but when the Blues score first, they play typical Yeo style of defense around the net and not much offense (or at least Yeo playoff style) and it'll be very hard for the Wild to come back in a game.

And that is why I'd like to see Schroeder in and White out. Schroeder might cause the Blues to commit a penalty and White will probably commit one. I know the Power Plays haven't been electric in this series, but the Blues have been getting very close.

Might have a chance if they can dump Pominville and then lose Scandella or Brodin's salary in expansion. Otherwise money will be tight with the Granlund and Niederreiter contracts.

How much term do you really want to commit to someone Hanzal's age?

I'd hope for 2 years but OK with 3. But yeah, we need to shed a little salary in order to keep him. Granny and Nino come first.

Suter and Spurgeon are a given. The third one is tough. They NEED salary cap space and Scandella/Brodin have higher hits than Dumba.

Dumba brings something unique to the back end, but you're going to have to live with his mental lapses and the fact that, despite him having a cannon for a shot, he doesn't also unleash it at the right time.

Scandella in the playoffs was back to beast mode Scandella that has been your only physical presence on the back end. He's also got a very good/hard shot!

Brodin's skating and positioning make him a lock down defender when his game is on, but he doesn't contribute much to the offense.

We have many more LHD in the pipeline than RHD, but Brodin as a LHD plays very well on the right side. What do we do with Folin? Reilly? Olofsson?
