Let's see what moves the team will make this offseason and how these offseason moves will influence the next season. All I know is Matt Cooke has been placed on the waivers recently!

Matt Cooke is the biggest POS in the NHL right now. I hope that no one picks him up, but someone will, and he will be free to roam the ice next year, looking to injure other team's elite players with more carefully designed high head hits and knee-on-knee dirtiness.

I know that the Wild want to resign Doobie, but it would make me nervous if I were a Wild fan. He isn't as good as he played for the team at the end of the season. He was on fire, and got them into the playoffs, but that kind of play was way above his head. He is bound to not be anywhere near as good through the slog of an entire season.

So they drafted another kid from the Swedish elite league...I guess there isn't much in terms of impact players at the 18th pick. So why waste a 1st round pick on a guy who at best will be on the second line "when he develops".

Another reason Chicago will own the division for the next 5-10 years.

Chicago is shipping a lot of its parts out, isn't it?



I would suspect they're content with three Cup run to now be whatever they'll be for the next decade or two.




I don't know what CF's philosophy is at this point after bringing in that ogre Jordan Greenway just now.




I don't think you blow the team up as it is in current form, but we are clearly missing a part or two (an all star goal scorer and perhaps a more offensive, all star defenseman who can produce) away from being Cup contenders, IMO.

Rumor is they agreed to $25 million over 6 years to Dubnyk... Fletcher wont be the GM in a couple years. I could see 10M for 3 years. This will handcuff the organization till 2020 at least.

He's better than Corey Crawford. And several other goalies that are getting paid a lot more than him.


He will be twentieth highest paid in the league with his contract.

No, he is not better than Crawford. Dubnyk is a slightly above average tender who will play well with the Wild's very good defensive system in front of him, but Crawford is much better than he gets credit for, and just as a reminder, the Blackhawks will never win a Stanley Cup with Crawford in net.

dubnyk is better than Crawford in my book. Course Crawford is winner - look at the teams and players in front of him.

But your book is incorrect. Do you realize that Crawford held the highest scoring offense in the NHL to fewer than 2 goals per game in the Final, and that in the last 3 games, the Bolts scored only 2 goals, all while the Blackhawks effectively had 3 1/2 D-men for those games (Oduya's arm had been hurt and he had torn ligaments in his elbow).

It was Chicago. The team with four HOF and a boatload of other damn good players that were playing, no matter which way you try to spin it.
