Questions to Answer

  1. Will the Wild go hard tonight, since a loss is the final straw in the season?
    Is Koivu playing really a smart decision? We know what happened when Gaborik tried to come back early?
    Will the Curse of Alberta continue?
    Is Backstrom's season done?
    Do you bother trying to get Koivu, Bouchard and Burns back on the ice?
