Hockey Wilderness Podcast- A Minnesota Wild Podcast (general)

 

Friend of the show Adam Stafki of Along The Boards stops by for a chat on the suddenly surging Wild. The Wild are 5-0 since our last episode, and they’ve gone from “lost season” to “playoff contenders” in just two short weeks. How did they do this? It’s got a lot to do with Devan Dubnyk, whom we talk about at length, as well as the state of the playoff race. From then on, we talk about Matt Cooke’s injury and it’s impact, Marco Scandella’s minutes, the joy of Left Shark, and Darcy Kuemper’s rehab stint in Iowa.

In this episode of the Hockey Wildeness Podcast, Tony Dean of Hockey Buzz returns to join Aaron and Tony for a discussion of the Wild (finally) getting a Stadium Series Game. Yay outdoor hockey! 

The discussion then turns to the All-Star Game, and Ryan Suter’s participation in the festivities. We have a lot to say about it despite the fact that Aaron was the only one who actually watched it.

Again, we have another week of As the Goalies Turn, as Devan Dubnyk showed some cracks in his armor after starting the second night of a back-to-back. We also talk about Darcy Kuemper getting sent back down to Iowa.

And finally, Aaron and the two Tonys try to come together to find some middle ground on Mikko Koivu.

 

Make sure to find Tony’s work on HockeyBuzz, as well s his appearances every Wednesday on the Jeff Dubay Show. You can follow the podcast on Twitter @HWildernessCast. Make sure to leave a voicemail with your questions or comments on the Hot Take Line (218-348-1002).

Joe, Ger, and Tony sit down to break down the early part of the Minnesota Wild's season. How good was that Jonas Brodin extension? Should we be concerned that the Wild Power Play isn't producing? Does Nino Niederreiter need to get more ice time? And what Eddie Vedder was doing in a Justin Fontaine jersey? Before the episode, Tony talks a bit about the recent Charlie Coyle extension.

Aaron, Joe, and Tony examine the late-game heroics of Mikael Granlund, whose spectacular goal put the Minnesota Wild right back into the series with the Colorado Avalanche. They then tackle the Matt Cooke hit/up-coming suspension (turns out, it was 7 games) from all angles. Is his suspension fair? Has he been a dirty player in a Wild uniform before Monday night? How big of a blow will losing Tyson Barrie be to Colorado? Would a Wild series win be tainted by the incident? Was this part of a strategy by the Wild? And a lot more questions about the incident.
