Minnesota Wild 2014-2015 Outlook
The Wild were a 98-point team last year despite a difficult goaltending situation. With Vanek in the top six and some better luck on the health front, there’s every reason to think that they should be even better this year.
And yet … it’s still tough to get excited about the Wild, given that they’re stuck in the league’s toughest division. To win the Cup, they’ll have to get through the Blackhawks, Blues, Avs, and Stars just to make it out of the Central and earn the right to face whoever emerges from the almost-as-tough Pacific. That’s an awfully tough road, even for a team that should threaten the 100-point mark.
The Minnesota Wild were originally founded in 2000 in St. Paul, Minnesota as the Minnesota Wild. During the franchise’s short 7-year existence, the Minnesota Wild have advanced to the NHL playoffs twice and advanced to the Western Conference Finals once in 2003 where the Minnesota Wild lost to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks 4-0 in a disappointing attempt to advance to the franchise’s first ever Stanley Cup series. During the 2006-2007 NHL season, the Minnesota Wild won a franchise-record 48 games and finished in 2nd place in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference. However, the Anaheim Ducks upset in the Minnesota Wild in the Conference Quarterfinals in only 5 games.
The Minnesota Wild retired the #1 as a tribute to the Wild Fans on October 10, 2001. The NHL retired Wayne Gretzky’s jersey number #99 league-wide on February 6, 2000.
