    Can't help but wonder if that's why he's on the wing now. The reason he was acquired was to be a good defensive center that can win faceoffs. If he's not even doing that there's no point in keeping him here.

    With Johnson doing well enough relatively to stay on the fourth line, and Foligno and Parise coming back soon, we're probably going to need to move at least one player as is.

    Suter is just so lackluster. Has he had a single game where he was our best defenseman this season?

    Don't think so. But what do you expect from a guy who buys his groceries at Kwik Trip.

    His salary did go from nine to eight million this year...

    If the Wild hadn't scored on the PP, would the same have applied?

    So I think we can officially kill the whole 'we make life incredibly easy for our goalie' thing.

    Something about Vegas just makes us decide to stop playing defense

    How in the world are we constantly giving up these odd-man rushes. That nearly turned into a 3 on 0 out of nowhere.

    Our crease monkeys are giving them a chance to win most nights. It was something we really lacked last year.

    That shot off the rush through the defender by Kaprizov was ridiculous

    Talbot alone has prevented like 4 goals in situations where you just assume your getting scored on.

    We just need to avoid a shootout at all costs.

    Looks like both are playing for a 3 point game.

    We certainly used to. It's slipped a ton this year, and especially the last 10 games. Loss of Koivu, Foligno(recently) are big impacts there. Our 3 best forwards are also turnover machines trying to make something happen by themselves practically.

    First time since like 2012 we are out of the top 5 in xGF%
