Do you mean Wild fan? The Viking's play football (and there's a whole other thread for that). Assuming you meant Wild, what is it that suddenly made you a fan? I tend not to pay attention to who signs where and all that, so if we got a good new player, I'd like to know.
Given the timing of the original post, I think the Vikings comment was a Farve reference. I'm pretty sure he's a Stars fan when it comes to the NHL. Am I right, Schlectus?
Exactly right! Modano, Turco, Favre all within 24 hours...bleah. Bad day...I almost decided to become a curling fan...although my reaction to Favre (like everyone else's) was apparently a little bit knee-jerk.
No real news on the Wild...Koivu signed a "forever" contract a while ago, but that's the last I heard from them.
Can't wait to see what happens with Kovalchuk, and the whole "front loaded contracts" thing. Personally, I find it pretty disgusting that teams try to pull that in order to circumvent the cap, but I'm thinking that the NHL's hands are a bit tied here. After all, they didn't do anything about Hossa, etc.
