Preseason Wild

Everyone's been talking about the Wild signing Zach Parise and Ryan Suter; it's a big deal. The Wild have proven to have a rather large, loyal fan base, but because they have virtually no playoff experience, they've never been the hottest team around. With a 20-17-4 home record last year, we really need some excitement this season!

I'm getting super pumped for the preseason games, already starting at the end of September!

I just bought my cheap tickets on this website, check it out!

Big Day for Birthdays!

MN Wild fans, it's a big day for birthdays! 

Two prospects Matt Dumba, turning 18 (finally legal, ladies) and Johan Larsson, turning 20. Who knows what they'll wish for on their special day, they already have signed the 2012 1st Round Draft Pick to a entry level contract. What more could they want?!

Happy birthday boys, enjoy your special days!

Wait.... Mike Modano?

So last September,  Mike Modano, one of our greatest and favorite American hockey players, announced his retirement. He even signed a one-day deal with the Dallas Stars so that he could retire a Star. Nice. 

However, LOOK AT THIS TWEET HE MADE AFTER WE SIGNED PARISE AND SUTER! "Can I come back and play in Minnesota too..? ‪#northstars‬" Why yes, yes you can. 

At first, people thought Modano was just playing around. But, in reaction to all the buzz and excitement, Modano told the Dallas Morning News that "You look at things and you wonder what's the worst thing that could happen? I mean, I get in better shape. I don't know what's going to happen with the CBA and everything, but I mean, one more year? That kind of intrigues me." 

I mean, yeah, we'll take ya!

We'll keep you updated on this interesting speculation!


Matt Dumba signed for the MN Wild!

It's a big day, MN Wild fans! This morning we signed defense man Matt Dumba as first round draft pick. He is 17. What?!! Is that even allowed?! Okay, granted, he turns 18 in six days, but still. What a baby! He will be the youngest player under contract with the Wild, and if things don't work out, he can return to his junior team, the Red Deer Rebels. The Wild can see him becoming a puck-moving defenceman, a decent asset to the team!

He honestly looks like my 15 year old brother.

Parise, Suter Sign with Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild secured both of the NHL's top prizes in free agency, signing forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter on July 4th!

Each deal is for 13 years and $98 million.

Both Parise and Suter were seen as the top free agents in a very thin free agent market. Parise is a former New Jersey Devils playmaker. Suter comes to Minnesota as half of the duo with Shea Weber on the Nashville blue line.

Parise, who is 27, scored 31 goals and 69 points last season in his first year as the Devils' captain. Parise attributed a lot to the team making the Stanley Cup finals.

Suter, also 27, was the top defenseman available to teams this summer. Suter spent all seven of his NHL seasons with the Predators where he featured career high in points in 2011-12, with seven goals and 39 assists.

If you are interested in buying NHL Minnesota Wild hockey tickets, do not wait! When the Minnesota Wild announced "WE GOT 'EM!" tickets started flying out the door.

Zach Parise and Ryan Suter Potential Wild Players

The Wild ended the first day of free agency having signed either of the two franchise players they're chasing.

The Wild appear to be one of three finalists for New Jersey Devils forward Zach Parise and Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter.

The Wild announced that they had offered contracts to both players, who are expected to announce their today (7/2).
