Great Problems are Still Problems: Defense Getting Healthy - Hockey Wilderness
While having too many defensemen is a great problem to have, it still presents a problem. The depth of the organization on the blue line has been shown to be true, and now that depth must be reshuffled to make everyone fit back on the roster. Players capable of contributing to the NHL team will be in Houston, and players that have been a big part of the run to the top will be benched.

Now and Then Through 20 - Hockey Wilderness
As the season rolls along, the Wild have already played 20 games. Those 20 games just happen to have put them in first place in the NHL with 27 points, a franchise-high after the first 20 games. Just thought I'd remind you in case you forgot or you wanted to see it again.

G22 Oilers at Wild - Lowetide
Ryan Whitney is like a hockey version of Halley's comet in that he appears every 75 games.

Oilers at Wild – Putting on the Foil
So back to the building where the Oilers haven’t won in 17 straight games. No curse there, folks.. no curse. WE GOT THIS. It’s an early one today too. Who the hell plays hockey at 2PM?? The unemployed don’t even play hockey at that time. This is ridiculous. I’ll be missing this one while I’m stuck working. Maybe I can sneak away to a neighboring pub.

Game Day "Wild" - Oilers Jambalaya
If the Oilers play a patient game, they can capitalize more on the PP. It's important that the forwards don't try to play lone ranger tonight and try to over handle the puck on their own and also stay away from trying too many long outlet passes that end up in bad giveaways in the neutral zone.

GAME DAY: Oilers @ Wild - Oil On Whyte
Minnesota still hungover from American Thanksgiving celebration, Oilers throw wrench in Wild streak, first two lines carry the load again.
