A month or so ago, the question was: How many ways can we come up with to say the Wild are pretty good? Now, the question is: How many ways can we come up with to say the Wild are absolutely cooked?
Last night's news about Mikko Koivu is not going to be well received. By any one. One thing I am a bit disappointed about, but not completely surprised, is the reaction from fans outside Minnesota is more about who replaces Koivu in the All-Star game than who replaces Koivu in the Wild line-up. Which is fair, but it sure would be nice to read about something that matters, and not the corporate boondoggle that is about to take place in Ottawa.
Links after the jump. I wonder what they're about.

Wild blue-liners lacking offensive punch | StarTribune.com - Pretty helpful group, they are.
