Just to let you know I put up the same thing on Yahoo's Wild Message board, so, no I am not just copying someone elses stuff.
I do believe this will be up here at the end of the year, so we can look back. Just for shots and goggles.
While we have given up some scoring, which I believe will cost us the Northwest Division title, who cares we have a banner to raise Oct. 11. In exchange for that scoring we have added offensive grit. We have enough offense to make the playoffs and the increase in Grit will garner not one, but two playoff series wins, but alas our lack of physical dominance espescially defensively will cost us in the Conf. Finals and prevent the Wild's premier at The Stanley Cup Finals.
All in All:
2nd in NW barely
5th seed in West
Western Conf. Runner Up in the playoffs.
Call me a homer if you want, But I have been right more often than wrong with this team and do believe that DR and company have a great plan and arwe following it to make us an eventual dynasty along the line of edmonton and the Islanders.
I do question some things but in the end "In Dougie I trust."
