  1. Letter from Ryan Suter. https://www.theplayerstribune.com/posts/ryan-suter-minnesota-wild-nhl-hockey-dallas-stars
  2. Colts really nailed those picks, Smith at 2.37 and Darius Leonard at 2.36. Hopefully we'll see something similar to those deals.
  3. Competition should bring out the best in both. Regardless, it will be nice to have some much improved depth.
  4. Twyman waived with NFI designation. Move made to clear roster spot for Westbrook. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/07/26/vikings-waive-jaylen-twyman/ "If Twyman is not claimed on waivers, he will revert to Minnesota’s non-football injury list. He will not be able to play this season, but the team will retain his rights for the 2022 season." Hopefully he clears waivers. Might not be a bad thing if he can workout and learn the system for a year before stepping in next year? I was excited to see him play so that is a bummer.
  5. Twyman was placed on the NFI list, to make room for Westbrook, so hopefully he clears waivers.
  6. Kraken selected Wild defenseman Carson Soucy in the expansion draft. Correction, the Wild have picks 22 and 26 (from Penguins) in tonight's 1st round.
  7. From the ESPN article: "The vaccine is required for all Tier 1 staff, including coaches, front-office executives, equipment managers and scouts." Would've been tough to coach the OL through Zoom.
  8. Dennison out, Phil Rauscher in as OL coach. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31869652/rick-dennison-minnesota-vikings-assistant-refusing-covid-19-vaccine-sources-say
  9. I was fairly bored working from home back in December so I decided to see just how bad the Vikings kicking "luck" has been under Zimmer. I tabulated all of the kicks made for and made against and compiled the data. It really shouldn't be all that shocking. Since Zimmer was named HC in 2014 the Vikings rank: PAT for: 32nd (89.92% made, the league average over that time was 94.55% - 4.64% below the league average.) FG for: T28th (80.40% made, the league average over that time was 83.71% - 3.30% below the league average.) PAT against: 1st (96.70% made against us, the league av
  10. With 24 hours for 1st pick I'll be able to make timing work whenever.
  11. Connection is certainly there. It would be great if Parise waived his NMC but I doubt it happens.
  12. Hopefully JEE can continue his upward projection. Going to be an interesting 3 weeks for the Wild. *Saturday, July 17: Deadline for teams to submit their protected lists for the 2021 NHL Expansion Draft. Wild must protect Zach Parise, Mats Zuccarello, Ryan Suter, Jared Spurgeon, and Jonas Brodin due to their NMC's (no movement clauses). One of those five could waive their NMC and be exposed for Seattle if they chose. Wednesday, July 21: The 2021 NHL Expansion Draft is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET. Friday, July 23: The first round of the 2021 NHL Draft takes place on this Friday night
  13. He's replacing DeCastro in Pittsburgh. They signed him shortly after the DeCastro release.
  14. Was designated as NFI (non-football injury) from what I read. I heard the retirement angle as well.
