I'll say Toronto for the win, just because I hate Vancouver.
But really Vancouver is sucking right now, but they shouldn't be, they got an amazing line up. I'm just hoping the Wild can find some consistency.
At first I was like 'Why does he hate Vancouver, is he from Toronto?', but now I see you are from Minny. Feeling is mutual buddy
Actually I used to despise the Wild of old which was talentless and trappy. What are you gonna do with Lemaire behind the bench but at least the team has gotten a little more exciting on the ice. I have Antti Miettinen in my hockey pool and he has been doing decent this year. Sucks that Gabby is done for the season but it sure sounds like he wants the hell out of Minny. I don't really blame him. Anyone with solid offensive skills would probably be up in arms over Lemaire's philosophy of how a game should be played.
Gabby must be becoming quite the simulation F1 driver in his off time this year. If you haven't seen he has an amazing F1 simulator in his house.
Yeah, they've done a couple of Gaborik features over the years, I think alot of Minnesota fans are pretty fed up with the Gaborik injury re occurance. he guy plays like 20-30 games a year, if that, and he's the highest paid player on our team (I think). I won't be sad to see him go, hopefully we get someone decent for him.
I can understand how you could get frustrated watching a Lemaire coached team, not a ton of offense, but we seem to be in the top three and usually number one penalty kill, least penalized team so far this year and other years past, plus we have Koivu (going to be even more amazing in a year or two) and Burns (One of the top young defenseman in the league).
I think most Minnesotans are stoked to have our team back, after having the North Stars being taken from us. Toronto is actually not a bad team though, now that I moved back to "Da Range" (iron range in Minnesota) I get CBC on my TV, so I've been watching alot more canadian hockey teams, double headers Saturday nights.
But hey, it's nice to hear from another enemy of the Canucks.
