Questions to Answer
- Can the Wild show some kind of consistency?
- What the hell happened to Niklas Backstrom?
- Can the Wild stop Corey Perry?
- Who do we hate now that Moen, Pahlsson, Kunitz, Bertuzzi and May are no longer Ducks? Is it Pronger and only Pronger?
- Is the window closed for the Ducks? Is it time for Pronger, Selanne and the Nidermayers to move on?
