Interesting decisions to be made in the next few hours. I do not envy Todd Richards his job today. I would hate to have to make the decision he has to make today. Send Pizza down after a stellar two games? Send Falk down after a season of good games? Send Stoner down, despite his now albatross of a contract?
I know what my decision would be. If you have an opinion on the matter, head over to Facebook and answer the Question of the Day. Should be interesting to see what they do. I know what they should do, and I have a pretty good feeling about what they will do. Not always the same thing.

One last friendly reminder. Only 37 shopping days left until Xmas. Have you ordered your "Sorry Tom" shirts for your family yet?

Wild 2, Anaheim 1 (OT); Miettinen overtime winner from Scandella | StarTribune.com - Russo's post game rants with some good stuff that didn't make the gamer.

Minnesota Wild get a boost from youngster in overtime - TwinCities.com - Brothers' gamer with heavy emphasis on how young kids dream of having the assist on the game winning goal. Not sure about that, but OK.
