The Devils have a wicked good power play but the Wild don't seem convinced so they keep taking penalties.

With a predictable outcome.

This team is what it’s supposed to be, underpowered and mediocre.

No Boldy, No Spurgeon (even no Goose) it’s no surprise the Wild have struggled early in the season.

Looks like Bally’s finally made it so everyone needs an account to stream on the app. I can no longer provide my parent’s Spectrum info and connect that way. I’m not paying for that, so I’ll just need to find another way to occupy myself every other night this winter. 

Correction: They’ve added a step of making you get an account, but you don’t necessarily have to pay if you can connect a tv provider. For now.

Was just trying to log in and discovered that.  You can’t do a damn thing these days without having to give away personal information and have an account for everything.   ?

I attempted to make an account using a SPAM email address that I use strictly for signing up for this kind of garbage, and then using my dad's xfinity log in information and keep getting an error.

If the Wild are interested in having me as a fan, the need to step away from Bally's, and make it possible to follow the team without jumping through an endless string of hoops.  The worse this has become, the less I have cared about the Wild, the less I am willing to spend on merchandise and tickets, and it results in other things like me not wanting to pay for an Athletic subscription anymore to follow a team I cannot watch.  It has a domino effect, at least for me.

They must be struggling to sell tickets (or at least struggling to sell out games) because I keep getting emails about partial season ticket packages available, and single game tickets available.  Maybe watching some games might convince me to buy some tickets...  Or actually it might convince me not to based on how they have played recently.

When trying to activate the Ballys app on my phone, I get an error from Spectrum that I’ve had too many attempts and need to wait 30 minutes. I waited an hour, still getting the message. When activating the Ballys app on our AppleTV, the spectrum sign in (which is still being done on my phone) goes through without issue and the game is on my tv.

Wow so this garbage app is going to make me reconnect a provider every single time?  

Bye. Guess I’ll just be watching whatever teams are playing on ESPN or TNT.

It's kinda cool to see Faber wearing #7 when the MN wears their North Wild jerseys.

Being 2nd worst for GAA and 3rd worst for SV% is not a good thing?

Could be worse. I'm looking at you, San Jose (last two games, both losses: 10-2, 10-1, SJ is 0-10-1 so far this year)

When you tell somebody somethin', it depends on what part of the United States you're standin' in... as to just how dumb you are.

According to Kevin Weekes, Wilds are trading Addison to the Sharks. Compensation not known yet.

If Guerin is able to get anything for Addison,  I would consider that a win

Mittelstadt/EJ/Okposo/RJ beat Faber/Lettieri

Have more Gophers appeared in a game in the last decade?

Keep an eye on when AZ plays Buffalo on 12-11 it could be Cooley/Bjuggy/Boyd vs the Buffalo crew ( Boyd and RJ are the wild cards if they are in the lineup)

Yet they still couldn't field an all Gophers NHL team because there are no goalies. ? 

Not a dig btw - it's just weird after all this time.

Don't worry, Billy will find a way to make them slower and tougher. They will be the toughest team in the league when it comes to the after whistle scrums.

Dallas is just a better team. I've lost count of the defensive zone breakdowns, and part of that is Dallas has been first to the puck and winning the puck battles.

The Wild are so far behind the puck it's not even funny, and it doesn't help their cause to keep putting Dallas on the man advantage.

That’s as pathetic a performance & home loss as we’ve seen out of the Wild. To give up 5 power play goals plus a shorty. The penalty kill is an absolute JOKE. Dean’s tenure appears to have run its course, players clearly aren’t responding to his coaching and their top end players are playing ? shit. Even Wes Walz can’t sugarcoat this (postgame) and that’s saying something.

Don't forget the room.  We've got guys who are good in the room too.  They suck on the ice, but they're good for the locker room.  Better extend them for several years too.

So good in the room that Evason has called out the leadership twice now in 15 games.

I don't think Evason ever had a chance to make it past this season, but he might not make it to Christmas at this rate.

No matter who they stick on the bench, they have a bunch of players who just water down the top talent. Players like KK, Zuch, Boldy, and Ek are going to look a whole lot better with more talent behind them. When the announcing team overly gushes about a first-year defenseman who's still finding his feet, you know you're watching a team that is a work in progress.

I don't follow the team closely, but I assume this is the penalty they're paying for backing up to the mint for Suter and Parise.

I think it's more so the penalty of having a bad general manager. Guerin decided to bet on guys like Spurgeon, Brodin, Foligno, and Fleury and it's going to cost him his job

I believe the Wild only have 10 power play goals, and 3 of them were in one game where they had 8 opportunities.   Yikes. 

4 from Kirill  (currently -11  in +/- btw)

4 from Ericsson Ek

1 from Zuccarello (currently -7 in +/-)

1 from Ryan Hartman 

 

This team is even worse than their record.   What the hell happened?

Not a very good team, and the couple of guys that they have that are capable of being difference makers, aren't doing so. Goaltending has been terrible and just bout everyone else has been average or worse than could be expected.

I guess the bright side is that Faber has been really good, and Rossi has shown flashes of being a player.
