Yup - for the first time this season! Went to the Ranger's game. It was more one-sided than the score would indicate. Without Gaborik skating, the game lost a bit of it's fun factor, but the Wild really played a good game, generating scoring chances most of the night. Really fun game to watch, then the next night, you would have sworn that Lemaire was back behind the bench. He would have loved the game against the Pen's. Jump on the few chances you get in the offensive zone, push all the shots to the outside and clear everything out from in front of the net and let your goalie steal one. Wild have not been a team that spends much in the free agency pool, so they are waiting for their draft picks to step up and make a difference and so far, the only two draft picks that have shown they are/could be something special are Gaborik and Clutterbuck. Bouchard has one season that says he could be in that camp too, but he's spent too much time hurt and doesn't have the physical size to stand a lot of bangin' around. Couple of guys in the minors/Juiniors could still develop, but so far the Wild have not drafted well in their 9 years in the league.
