Wild Pushing Hard

The Minnesota Wild are leaving nothing to chance this season. When they lost in the first round of the playoffs (again) to the Hawks they took a long hard look at the organization. They felt they needed to add some size and strength to protect the skilled players.

Yesterday the Wild made a couple deals adding Dmitri Orlov and big strong dman and big Anze Kopitar -a shut down center- while sending cash, Nazem Kadri and picks away. Kopitar will be a nice one-two punch with Stamkos while new wingers Rickard Rackell and Jakob Voracek bust heads along side sweethears Artemi Panarin and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

On the backend the Wild have Rasmus Ristolanen (on the block) along with Ryan Suter, Orlov and Justin Schultz. All four play heavy and with a bottom pairing of Gudbransen and Orpik, this team should punish opposing teams top forwards nightly.
