Remember the Vegas series. If you ignore Reaves, he's going to hurt his team.

Currently ranked 9th to win the Cup according to Vegas odds.

A little bummed to see that despite our fun season we are still considered a middling playoff team.

But when I look at the list above us, I mostly agree.

Can each team wear their reverse retros the whole series? That would be great thanks.

Reaves has a problem controlling his emotions. A big problem with it.

For a long breakdown of the Stars-Wild series by national writers, this is a good start.

Yeah, even though Reaves saw his offense contribution increase by +9000% while most the Wild players were either injured or rested, he will/should be a non-factor there. I'm more concerned about guys like Hartman or Foligno who are tough guys that can fight and score.

The problem is Boston is ranked 1-8.
Winamp - it really whips the llama's ass.

Minnesota Wild people who played for the Dallas Stars
Executive Advisor - Mike Modano - 1,142 games
John Klingberg - Dallas Stars draft pick - 552 games
Alex Gologoski - 385 games
GM - Bill Guerin - 216 games
Head Coach - Dean Evason - 127 games
Mats Zuccarello - 2 games
Ryan Hartman - uh, zero games
Ass. Coach - Brett McLean - 1997 9th round Dallas Stars draft pick

Dallas Stars people who played for Minnesota
Ryan Suter - 656 games

Message is pretty clear. The Wild sure love former Stars players.

Goligoski is still in the league? I’m changing my prediction.

Wild in 4 still, but three games will be Klingberg OT winners and Game 4 will be a Goligoski hat trick to complete the sweep.

He's not dead, so he's ok. Gotcha.

This is not 1994 anymore. Hope I'm wrong, but I guess Pavelski is done for the season.

They're obviously not going to be honest about his true condition in the playoffs. He could be a vegetable right now and we wouldn't know.

Except they're not saying he's playing. I tend to believe they're being genuine about that.

He'll be back before the end of the series.

This is realistically his last shot at a Cup.

We're gonna Tua him.

I know that game LOL.

He shouldn't. Stars have very very low odds to even compete for the cup and he has a family.

You need to pay the ultimate price in the playoffs. Maybe his fat son's tears are the exact sacrifice that the Stars need ...

To be fair, Pavelski's kid is kind of obnoxious.
