The Wild got a bit better in the offseason finally injecting offense into their lineup. Is that enough of a change to get them back to the playoffs though? Ah ha, that’s the question.

Mikko Koivu has always been a strong two-way player, but is he good enough to win the Selke Trophy? His head coach thinks so.

The word “trap” is a dirty word in the NHL, especially in Minnesota. Just think of how Wild fans will react when they hear coach Mike Yeo is bringing it back.

The Sharks seem confident that they improved their odds of winning after a summer of splashy moves. Let’s try to gauge how accurate their self-assessment really is.

New Wild head coach Mike Yeo announced what his top two scoring lines are going to be at the start of training camp and we’re actually impressed. Will it work though?
Jordan Hendry will audition for a spot with the Minnesota Wild after accepting a training camp tryout
Aug 27, 2011, 5:10 PM EST
The Wild need defensive help while Jordan Hendry needs a chance to save his career, so both sides could benefit if his training camp tryout goes well.

Oh, Ottawa. You started off so well but you’re lost in a cycle of looking terrible. Looks like the Senators are taking that whole resembling government thing a bit too much to heart.

Over the last month, we’ve seen Brent Burns, Devin Setoguchi, Dany Heatley, Martin Havlat, and (recently) James Sheppard move between Minnesota and San Jose. But when all is said and done, Charlie Coyle could be the most important player involved in the Minnesota Wild and San Jose Sharks offseason version of Trading Places. Yet as…
Aug 6, 2011, 11:27 PM EST
The Sharks and Wild know each other awfully well this summer and made their third deal of the offseason, this time with the Wild sending frustrating forward James Sheppard to San Jose for a 2013 third round pick.

Mike Richards scored a career-high 80 points while Simon Gagne scored 34 goals when they played together as Flyers in 2008-09. Gagne thinks they can regain that strong chemistry in Los Angeles.

The Wild introduced Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi today. There’s been a lot of debate about how much Minnesota really improved with those two moves, but they might benefit if Heatley and Setoguchi do what they’re asked to do: shoot. A lot.
Jul 4, 2011, 9:09 PM EST
After last night’s blockbuster deal between the Sharks and Wild that sent all-star Dany Heatley to Minnesota in exchange for all-star Martin Havlat, everyone is having their say about it today.
Jul 3, 2011, 11:45 PM EST
The Sharks and Wild shocked the hockey world by making their second big trade in a month tonight. This time around, the Wild received the immediate upgrade by nabbing Dany Heatley for Martin Havlat. Read all about the impact for both teams in this post.

While the Winnipeg hockey team is bound to the Atlanta Thrashers records, they will be doing one good thing with that and continuing to honor Dan Snyder’s memory in Manitoba.

With the Sharks out of the playoffs, we now know the injuries that Joe Thornton, Dany Heatley, Ryane Clowe and Jason Demers dealt with. Win or lose, it validates the impression that hockey players are tough.
May 25, 2011, 6:13 PM EST
Another year and another loss in the Western Conference finals for the Sharks. What went wrong? You mean stuff other than the Sedins, right? There’s a couple things.
May 25, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
Last night’s Game 5 series clincher by Vancouver gives us the chance to look back on the performances (or lack there of) from Roberto Luongo, Ryan Kesler, Joe Thornton, and Dany Heatley.
May 24, 2011, 5:23 PM EST
Even with Joe Thornton in the lineup for Game 5, it’s clear that other Sharks players must step up to keep their hopes alive.
May 24, 2011, 11:00 AM EST
Jeremy Roenick and Keith Jones provide this preview of Game 5 between the Sharks and Canucks.
May 23, 2011, 9:15 AM EST
Five thoughts today looks through the job the Sedins are doing to take advantage of a weaker defense while we wonder aloud about where in the world has Dany Heatley been.
May 19, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
With all the firepower on display in this series between San Jose and Vancouver, leave it to Ben Eager to steal the attention thanks to some of his boneheaded plays.
May 16, 2011, 6:49 PM EST
The Sharks are hoping for more from three players in particular: Dany Heatley, Ryane Clowe and Joe Pavelski. How realistic are those requests, though?
May 13, 2011, 1:45 AM EST
Now that we’re down to the Conference finals in the East and West, we want to know… Who do you have winning it all now?
May 11, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
Things just got a lot more interesting in the Western Conference and if you’re the San Jose Sharks this is not at all what you wanted to have happen.
May 10, 2011, 11:08 AM EST
The Sharks will try to close out the Red Wings without their highly valuable power forward Ryane Clowe, who won’t play in Game 6 and didn’t travel to Detroit.
