It’s September; and we have reached one more milestone before the start of the 2011-12 NHL season.
With the countdown until October and reaching that final threshold before the puck drops in the regular season Fansided is going to take a look at each team in the league one day at a time.
Heading into the hockey wilderness today we check in with the Minnesota Wild.
The Wild hold a special place in my heart; and not just because of their captain Mikko Koivu but lets face it – he doesn’t hurt. My first hockey writing was with The Hockey Writers to write about the Wild and from there I even joined the staff of Hockey Wilderness where I took a walk on the Wild side of Detroit.
Martin Havlat – Led the Wild with 22 goals and tied for team scoring lead with 62 points, dealt to San Jose
Andrew Brunette – Veteran was third on club scoring, signed with Chicago
Brent Burns – 4th leading scorer and top scoring defenseman, off to San Jose
Antti Miettinen – Departed for KHL
John Madden – Solid role player still unsigned
Chuck Kobasew – Signed in Colorado
Jose Theodore – Signed in Florida
Cam Barker – Bought out, subsequently signed with Edmonton
Todd Richards – not getting the job done behind the bench resulted in a pink slip
