0-1-1 but we've been on the road. WE dont look super awesome but perhaps this can change Thursday night. Its amazing how bad our defense can be. Giving up anything more than 30 shots is embarrassing and we regularly give up 40.

Our goalies shouldnt have to stand on their head every game for us to have a chance to win.

Especially for a team with the personnel the Wild have back there. That's a really good group of players on defense.

Eh. Suter is way past his prime, most others are hovering around 6'0 and under 200 lbs and in their early 20's. We're fast but we lack physicality and intelligence.

Even past-his-prime Suter is a good defender. Regardless of size, Suter-Spurgeon-Brodin-Dumba should be a reliable top four.

Should is the key word.

I feel they are more offensively minded than they should be. I love dumba, i really do but I think we are lacking in strong defense, as shown by the shots on goal we tend to allow.

I'm Minnesotan and I've been on skates only a couple of times in the last 10 years. I don't even own my own pair anymore.

I haven't in about two years now because I have a problem with my hip and skating is about the worst thing for it.

I played in the state tourney and some D3 before drinking and playing in bands became more fun.

I played some mens league through my mid-late 20's but im kind of over it. Its weird to not consider myself a hockey player anymore, but i leave it int he past when i was a pretty decent hockey player.

Now im just a ski rube.
