The Wild are bad and that's funny. After becoming the new favorite target of the crowd that goes looking for smoke-and-mirrors playoff runs, the Wild have fallen off due in VERY large part to getting very bad goaltending this year. They're almost certainly screwed this year in terms of making the playoffs, but unlike last year where the Wild weren't as good as their record suggests, what we have right now in a team that's just 3-6-1 in their last ten games is a hockey team that is better than their awful record indicates (because we all know that Colorado truly belongs in the basement of the Central).

Ryan Suter elbows people in the head and then tells the press that it's the guy's own fault for skating into his oustretched arm. He's a fourth-grade bully with the same haircut.

Have fun in the comments and let's go Red Wings.
