Want the Wild to rebuild and start over? It's harder -- and riskier -- than you might think

The Wild will have a week off for the All-Star break starting Thursday and will arrive at the unofficial midpoint (50 games played is not half of 82) in a familiar position. The Wild is very much in the mix for a playoff spot — a little better than a coin flip, depending on where you look at probabilities — but Minnesota clearly isn't one of the NHL's very best teams. Top 16? Possibly. Top five? No chance. This middle ground has defined much of the last seven seasons (counting this one) since th...

From The Minnesota Wild Side

from Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune, The Wild experienced how tough it is to play catch up after falling behind when completing a back-to-back in its recent loss to the Bruins. And that’s the strategy the team will try to capitalize on against the Red Wings Saturday at Xcel Energy Center, as Detroit faced off against the Jets Friday in Winnipeg. “We saw that in Boston,” goalie Devan Dubnyk said. “Obviously, they jumped on top of us early and it’s tough to do – those back-to-ba...

Welcome to the Tuesday edition of The Cooler, where everything old is new again. Let's get to it: *The Packers on Tuesday morning reportedly finalized a four-year deal with Matt LaFleur to be their next head coach.

All-Star Snub: Wild’s Zach Parise

On Jan. 2nd, the National Hockey League announced the rosters for the All-Star weekend festivities in San Jose. Fans in Minnesota expected to see Zach Parise’s name on the Central Division roster and represent the Minnesota Wild later this month. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. Parise was snubbed of an All-Star spot even though he is deserving of one. In 38 games played, he has recorded 35 points (18 goals, 17 assists), including a game-winner yesterday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He’s ...

Maple Leafs Lose, but Nylander Scores & Non-All-Star Marner Shines

What a difference a month makes. On Dec. 1, the Toronto Maple Leafs went into St. Paul and beat the Minnesota Wild 5-3 on Nazem Kadri’s tie-breaking goal. On Thursday afternoon, the same Wild team came into Toronto and beat the Maple Leafs 4-3 on Zach Parise’s tie-breaking goal. Perhaps more interesting, is that William Nylander scored his first goal of the season. I say interesting because, just prior to the Dec. 1 game against the Wild, coach Mike Babcock broke the news to his team that ...

Bryan Rust Providing Needed Spark for Penguins

For several seasons, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ offense has been completely reliant on the big three – Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel. When those three aren’t producing, it usually results in a handful of losses in a row. So far this season, the big three are right where they’re supposed to be in terms of leading the team in scoring, but Kessel and Malkin have both been in a vicious slump as of late. While Sidney Crosby has been his usual self over the last six games, both Phi...

Radulov’s OT Goal Lifts Stars Past Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Alexander Radulov was at the end of his shift and tired, but he was on the other side of the ice from the bench when he entered the offensive zone with the puck and time winding down in overtime. Radulov’s decision to stay on the ice instead of going to the bench for a change paid off in a big way for the Dallas Stars. The veteran forward scored with 10 seconds on the clock in overtime to give Dallas a 2-1 win against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. “It was either change ...
