When Willie Mitchell was a member of the Minnesota Wild, the only thing that you could count on from him was solid defense. Now as a member of the Vancouver Canucks, all he does is tally points against his former team. As I am writing this, the Minnesota Wild is losing 3-2 to the Canucks and Willie Mitchell has two assists. Where were those assists when he was on the Minnesota Wild?
It has been fun to watch the Gaborik versus Mitchell game within the game. Gaborik has definitely had fun taking the body versus Mitchell and Mitchell has been jawing with Gaborik. I can only imagine how much fun this rivalry will be watch if these teams meet in the playoffs. Maybe Boogard will have to have a talk with Willie?
