No Sidney Crosby, so it really doesn't matter, right rest of the NHL media?

Anyway, the Wild are playing well, getting results, and seems to always succeed against the Eastern conference. Of course, that was before they came to the house that Sidney built (and designed, and manufactured, and paid for and ...). Frankly, without Crosby in the lineup, this is a harder team to figure out. So many weapons, such a scary team, but we all hate them because of the media.

Unfair? Yes. Too bad. Life is unfair. I hate the Pens.

Viva la 1991!!!!!

Five Questions:

  1. Will the Wild end the first-half of the season with 21 wins?
    Does Jose Theodore continue his solid play?
    Over/under on Sidney Crosby mentions, even though he isn't playing = 19.5 - What do you take?
  2. How many times will people pine for Goligoski and Martin to be on the Wild, since you know, they're from Minnesota and all?
  3. Do we still hate Chris Kunitz and Matt Cooke since they're no longer in our conference and we only see them once a year?
