10K Rinks Radio- A Minnesota Wild Podcast

The Hockey Wilderness Podcast is back of after a Thanksgiving break! When we last left our heroes (Tony and Joe) the Wild were riding high after Devan Dubnyk posted a Brick Trick. Fast forward a couple weeks, add in destruction at the hands of a couple Central Division rivals, and we get a ton of ranting. Among the topics discussed:

  • Dubnyk and the goaltending not playing up to snuff
  • Kyle Quincey was bad...really bad.
  • Really? The Wild are looking at solving issues with...Nate Prosser?
  • A disparity of skill between the top 6 and bottom 6
  • Minnesota could use Luke Kunin and Joel Eriksson Ek back
  • Kirill Kaprizov saga
  • Your Twitter questions and much more!

The Minnesota Wild needed to finish their homestand strong, but instead ended up dropping 2 of 3 games. Disappointing, for sure, and Tony tries to guide you through that disappointing week. He makes it about 15 minutes, then turns to your questions in the mailbag. 

Topics include:

  • Has Dumba's play since last week improved enough?
  • Minnesota wasting Dubnyk's best start of the season
  • Turning the TV off during a lackluster effort in Boston
  • What's wrong with Devan Dubnyk?
  • Checking in on the rest of the Central
  • Can Minnesota send Tyler Ennis down?
  • Why Joel Eriksson Ek needs to be in the NHL 
  • Projected lineup when Coyle returns
  • Are Ennis and Marcus Foligno meeting expectations?
  • Does the Matt Duchene deal hurt Minnesota?
  • Egg Nog or Egg Nah?
  • Tony's favorite book
  • If Minnesota traded into the first round in June, who should they have drafted?
  • Can a lack of commitment or attitude explain the Wild's struggles?
  • Is Ketchup the worst condiment?
  • If Tony could pick any team to be the GM of, which would it be and why?

And more!

  • Luke Kunin making the most of his shot
  • Zach Parise's back surgery
