Those Damn Pesky Wild(s) >:(

Gaborik Demitra

It's been harder to cheer against the Minnesota Mild this season now that two of my favourite players, Pavol Demitra and Marian "Potatohead" Gaborik (BFFL), have teamed up together to provide them with the Supersonik Slovak Scoring Duo.

The Canucks? They have zero Slovaks and two Czech bald guys. As hard as Jan Bulis might try, he can't really emulate The Pavol.

It doesn't help that the Wild don't have many players, other than EMO Wanker/Foo Fighter wannabe Brian Rolston, that I despise with much fervor.

As awesome as the Canucks have been since Christmas, the Wild have nearly as good, and now have a team record 8-game winning streak, leaving them right on the Canucks asses like a couple on Davie Street.

The Wild also set a team record with their 43rd win, and don't seem to be showing any signs of slowing down.

Comparing the Canucks and Wild's records for 2007, we see a lot of ass-kickery.

Vancouver Minnesota Edmonton

JANUARY 8-1-3 7-4-2 sucky
FEBRUARY 8-3-1 8-2-2 suckier
MARCH 9-1-1 9-1-1 suckiest

Of course, much of this has to do with the return of Potatohead from an injury which cost him about 20 games. Once he returned, Demitra rediscovered his touch and now the Wilds are on fire. D'oh...

Story Link:
Marian Gaborik and Pavol Demitra have been on the same NHL team for 75 games, but they're making plays like a duo that's skated together for years.

Gaborik scored twice and Demitra had a goal and two assists as the Minnesota Wild won their franchise-record eighth consecutive game, beating the St. Louis Blues 5-1 on Thursday night.

"I try to look for him every time when I have a puck," said Gaborik, who has combined with Demitra for 66 points in Minnesota's last 24 games. "I make those three or four steps, and I know the puck's going to be there. It's good to know that. We've been great that way, and it's working."

Every time I watch the highlights, I'm waiting to see the Minny highlights and watch these two perform some on-ice magic.

Yeah, I find myself cheering when the Wild score (only for these two, anyway), which is just....wrong!!

If the Canucks get knocked out of the playoffs, and Minny is still in it, you know who I'll be pulling stomach hurts just thinking about it. If the Canucks and Wild had to meet, it would be hard to cheer against Pavol.

So much anguish...

Gaborik Demitra
These guys are far cooler than you could ever hope to be!

You know, I'll admit that I'm a bit of a closet Wild fan also, I think Lemaire's system is pretty fascinating. They're a pain-in-the-ass to play against, and damn they create some glorious scoring chances!

The Slovaks are money, but over the entire roster it's impressive how interchangeable it all is--guys come in and out of Minnesota but the system still works.

One through eight--it's a pretty scary west, I tell ya. Maggie the Monkey's going to clean house this year.
I am a die-hard wild fan. Yes, I know we are amazing. We have had our down times but we bounce right back with incredible force. Its a race for #1 between Vancouver and Minnesota. May the best team win.

The pic you have at the bottom of Marian Gaborik, Pavol Demitra, and the other guy. He's not Brian Rolston its Right Winger Branko Radivojevic #92.
