Default 2015-2016 Minnesota Wild Season Discussion Thread

I know it's early, but is it ever too early? Plus, I wanted to be the one to make the thread

We'll use this thread to talk about anything and everything regarding the Wild's 2015-2016 season! I'll start it off:


Word came out today that we are parting ways with Matt Cooke. I'm fine with that, but now we need a tough guy/enforcer. Wayyyyy too many games I watched last year where we would just let the other team roll all over us physically. We need a guy or two that will step in and show/tell the other team that they can't hit us left and right. I don't want us to change our game, because that's not Wild hockey, but we need someone that will stand up for his teammates (I miss Boogaard)


Secondly, we need to resign Dubnyk and Granlund. Goalie situation is still iffy, even with Dubnyk, I think. But, if we lose him, it'll me a mess. I'm not too worried about him resigning, as I've read a couple of articles that say the Wild need Dubs and much as he needs the Wild. But, I still won't be happy until we resign him. Granlund is way too good to not resign. He's another young stud that is key to our team's success. We really need him back next year

Rumor has it we have signed Dubnyk to a 6-year deal! Supposed to be officially signed and announced on Monday

Winning the Mike Reilly sweepstakes was huge, that guy is going to be a stud and make an already deep Minn defense better. I thought for sure he would end up with Chicago, bummed to see him end up with the rival Wild!

Dubnyk signing is official! More details to come

Also pumped about Reilly. Glad he's staying in MN!

Nashville hasn't been an issue either. They've come closer and closer to cracking the Hawks each year, but just haven't quite pulled it off yet

if being swept 4-0 is "closer to cracking the Hawks" then I guess that you have a true statement...

All but one of those games could have gone either way. In '12-'13, we were straight overmatched, only winning 1 game in OT. Took a step forward in '13-'14 by winning 2, including a shutout, but half of their losses were 2 or more goals. '14'-'15, we didn't win any of them, but if you had actually watched any of the games, you would have seen that they were very closely played any all but one of them could easily have been won by the Wild. So yes, we have gotten better each year and closer to taking down the Hawks in the playoffs.

I watched every minute of every one of the Hawks playoff games.

And then I watched the parade to Soldier Field with the Stanley Cup

Best of luck to the Wild...

Are you here to discuss the Wild's 2015-16 season, or to troll? Seems pretty clear to me...

Couple more extensions/signings-

Mike Reilly
Mikael Granlund
Ryan Carter
Nate Prosser

Plus some younger guys. Like what we've been doing (or not doing) so far. We really aren't missing any huge pieces. A true top-line center would be nice, and Koivu fits better on the 2nd line I think, but we've proved that we are one of the best teams in hockey.

Happy hockey day Wild fans! The West is AGAIN going to be so tough, here's to hoping for another 100+ point season, the playoffs and some home ice for the playoffs.

Need some bounce back seasons from Koivu, Vanek and Pominville and some more growth from Zucker, Coyle, Granlund and Dumba. Hopefully Oates gave the PP some good advice this offseason (can't think of too many better to help them out). It should be a fun ride.

No December lulls this year boys!
