Knee injury to Wild prospect Tyler Cuma mars AHL game at the X - TwinCities.com - Now read this one. We'll call this "how to do it wrong." I wonder who the source was for the information on the ACL tear. Probably the same source as everyone else... and I didn't the info from the doctor. Also... when exactly did Cuma undergo "reconstructive knee surgery in 2008-09?" He has never had it. Had a meniscus repaired once. Like a UFA and RFA, there is a difference, and it is easy to find.
Minnesota Wild prospect Colton Gillies' game is starting to live up to his 2007 billing - TwinCities.com - Another example of poor drafting... the Wild expected him to be a two way banger? And that is worth a first round pick? Um... OK.
