Yep, Steve Ott is a Rodeo Clown

Yes it's true, Steve Ott is a rodeo clown. Personally, I would recommend circus clown instead. Rodeo clowns actually have a purpose in life. I am so glad that someone from that national media has finally said this. I think the Wild should be applauded for their restraint and not taking the bait from the St. Louis Blues. It has been fun to watch the Wild players just look Ott and...

WTH: Dustin Byfuglien Punches Corey Perry After he Scores (Video)

At the 03:08 mark of the second period, Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien punched Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry after he had scored a goal against the Jets. Not a very classy act and I'm sure the league will take a look at this incident, but I don't see a suspension coming.

Does Anybody Beleive Subban?

First off, P.K. Subban is an awesome player and does a really good job of playing the villain and hockey does need some villains to make the game more interesting. Or at least, I think so.I know that hockey is a game of intimidation, and there's a lot of gamesmanship during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. After watching this video, does anyone believe Subban? He's beginning to develop...

(Video) Jason Zucker Goal in Game One Against the Blues

Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker scores an absolutely beautiful goal in game one against the St. Louis Blues. Zucker missed 27 games to a broken Clavicle. Zucker's return is like getting a player at the trade deadline. Zucker adds another speedy forward to an already fast lineup.

Enter Devan Dubnyk

Here's some of an article that I wrote for the Hockey Writers.  On January 14, 2015, the Minnesota Wild acquired Devan Dubnyk (97-91-26, 2.69 GAA, .914 SV%) from the Arizona Coyotes for a third round draft pick in the 2015 NHL entry. That move appeared to be a steal as Dubnyk started 38 games in a row for the Wild. During those 38 games, Dubnyk went (27-8-2, 1.78 GAA, .936...

Humble Pie a la Mode

by Redwing77The season is over and the outcome wasn't what we wanted, but that's not what is humbling to me.  I remember back in 2005 when all four Frozen Four teams were from the same conference.  WCHA fans crowed about how awesome the WCHA was and, well, the WCHA won the NC that year.  But was that truly great?In college football the only people who were overjoyed by the Alabama...
