Just over a 1/4 of the way through the season - just gotta ask: Who's happy and who's not?
Me: Well, a five game winning streak is perking up my spirits a bit, but for the most part, I am not a happy camper
. The Wild have looked out-right awful this year - no energy, can't make a pass or a play, can't seem to shoot the puck ON the net and then when they do put some offense together, Backstrom suddenly becomes incredibly mediocre in the net. I give them one big concession: they have been missing some of their top players due to injury. They have climbed out of the cellar for now, but it still feels pretty tenuous.
Edit: forgot to add that Havlat has been a TOTAL bust for the firrst 1/4. Awful play, bad choices with the puck, horrible passes and turnovers, next to no goals, and injured.Edited by Tag - 12/7/09 at 7:44pm
