Hockey Wilderness Podcast- A Minnesota Wild Podcast

 

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).

Hockey Dubnyk In Minnesota

Tony, Joe, and Chris get you with all you need to know about the most recent shake-up with the Minnesota Wild, the Devan Dubnyk trade. How has he looked so far? Is Dubnyk a potential long-term solution for the Minnesota Wild? Does this mean we’ve seen the last of Niklas Backstrom?

After discussing Dubnyk, the crew turns their attention towards the playoff picture. The Wild will need to pass 4 teams in the standings in order to make the playoffs. Can they do it? Which teams are most vulnerable to falter down the stretch?

Finally, the gang closes out the show by talking defense, defense, defense. How did Matt Dumba look upon returning to the big club? What do we think of the fight he had in Buffalo? And why on Earth is Ryan Suter playing so many more minutes than anyone else on the team?

 

That, and some fun nonsense await you in this episode of the Hockey Wilderness Podcast. We’re also announcing a new way to interact with the show- The Hot Take Line. Call (218) 348-1002 to leave a voicemail with questions or comments about the Wild, and you may have your call played on the show!
