Four in a row is good, 12-12-3 is better and two new additions, Ebbett and Langresse are huge parts of the equation. The Wild have really come together since the beginning of the season and it’s starting to get hopeful. They are tied for 12th in the West and are only about 10 points out of first. Now lets not get ahead of ourselves, there won’t be any first place finish but there is more and more a likelihood to make the playoffs and that’s amazing.
New coach and all that and the Wild are gutting it out. Just think of what this team will be when Havlat lives up to his contract, Burns and Bouchard get healthy and Sykora stays healthy? It’s downright impressive really. Not many teams are able to make such significant changes and remain competitive. Slow start maybe, but it will come even if it’s next year. Point is, things are getting exciting in St. Paul.
