Wild Warmup: Minnesota at Los Angeles
Really excited to see what Kaprizov (and Fiala) can do.
LET’S F***ING GO!
f*** the penguins
Kahkonen is better.
Step 1 on the way to 56-0-0!
Kaprizov looked like a hound on the puck with his takeaways in scrimmage.
Should be fun to watch in real game action.
Only 13 hrs to go!
I'm curious to see how the lineup changes over time. I see that the Wild don't think of Eriksson-Ek as anything but a PK, defensive specialist, which is a shame. I would have started him out in the top 6 and see what type of offense he has. Could go a long way to shoring up the top 6 center if he ends up posting 15-20 goals and 30-40 assists.
I'm sure JEE will see time up the lineup. I think with the huge roster turnover in the top 6, Evason probably wanted one line that had some continuity and known chemistry.
That's fair...though Parise - Bjugstad - Kaprizov was the best line during the scrimmages apparently.
Fiala is about to take that next step
I put close to zero stock in training camp scrimmages. Vet's are just trying to get loose and not get hurt, and Kaprizov had new puppy energy.
But you can see the chemistry. Regardless if they are getting loose and not getting hurt or if Kaprizov is excited, you can tell which players gel with each other.
I give you Suter & Dumba 2 periods.
if youre gonna say one line looked great together it would be the 4th line. sturm rask and hartman looked solid together in both scrimmages. kaprisov was carrying his line they didnt look that great together.
I don't care about winning tonight, I don't care about Fiala or Talbot.
All that matters is Kaprizov. FINALLY!!!
Others saw differently, we'll see.
If chemistry is what you'd call Parise-Bjugstad-Kaprizov in training camp, it's going to be a long season.
Im predicting 3 points for the russian savior
Hope so, because the more points Bjugstad gets the higher his value at the deadline.
Hypothetical question: Is it possible that Bjugstad (or Johansson or Bonino) plays so well that, rather than trade him, it makes more sense to re-sign him?
That would be what you call a first world problem. In terms of Centers, we are more of a third world team.
