I really hope that Minnesota loses out and both us and Columbus make it in. I think Columbus is exactly the type of team that could upset Chicago and lord knows I'd love to see it. That team does not go away.
I'll second that. However the Wild are playing with confidence right now and with games vs the Oil and Avs. I just don't see them losing both games but stranger things have happened.
Nothing would thrill me more than to see the Wild miss the playoffs.
It should be this season! Would be so nice to add a top 6 forward as well as Nyq and Tats. Add in a helm return and that's four top 9 forwards added to this roster (as long as Tatar and nyquist were playing top 9 mins).
Tatar and Nyquist time is coming. IF one of them doesn't get traded of course.
