One-A-Day: Minnesota Wild
There is always the one team an off season that has such drastic changes that you know the makeup of the team will be different. We think that this applies to the Wild.
There's a new GM, a new coach and new 'star' players.
It's going to be very different watching this team play.
We are excited to see how Martin Havlat works out with the team. He has insider knowledge from Marian Gaborik because we know that all Slovakians stick together. Just ask Marian Hossa and Tomas Kopecky.
General Manager - Chuck Fletcher
Coach - Todd Richards
Team Captain - if they're not rotating anymore then we think it's Mikko Koivu
Player(s)Everyone Should Love - Brent Burns because he likes snakes
Player We Don’t Love - Cal Clutterbuck, have you heard that voice?
Who They Got - Martin Havlat, Kyle Brodziak, Shane Hnidy, Wade Dubielewicz
Who They Lost - Marian Gaborik, Marc-Andre Bergeron, Stephane Veilleux, Kurtis Foster
Located At - Xcel Energy Center
Hotness Level (on a scale from 1 to 10) - 3
There are some definite cuties on the team but they're so few and not absolutely gorgeous so we think that it's only a 3. Brent Burns is adorable and James Sheppard's hair rivals Kris Letang's so that's why their number is better than the Avs.
P.S. - There are no fun YouTubes for the Wild since they weren't allowed to have fun until Jacques Lemaire left.
LATE EDIT: There are in fact some YouTubes out there of the Wild.
