The Foote brothers are fine. Both will play in the NHL, so will Katchouck. Stevens is struggling.

The Wild had a decent prospect pool and a few of them flamed out. Shit happens it wasn’t like I said those guys were as good as Gadjic or Teubert.

I disagree about the Foote’s. The game has outgrown those types of players. They will struggle

This is based on all the times you’ve watched them I assume.

I think it’s looked good for quite a while now. This team was on its way down following the loss to the Sharks in 2013. Schneider was not going to make much of a difference in that.

Some of us liked this trade from the day it happened.

Every dog has its day eh Gillis? :P

One needs-be psychologically strong to be an NHL goaltender.

Those suffering from panic attacks aren't going to cut it in the long run.

Tis a shame because Schneids is such a gifted athlete.

Speaking of dogs, I recall ole DiamondDog at HF being extremely distraught at the trade.

He was ranting and raving about how sure he was Mr Schneider would win a Vezina within a few years.

So I created a thread there, ended up betting him $100 on dat dere.

(loser had to donate $100 to the site)

Twas a four-page thread that eventually got locked.

Two years ago I gently reminded DiamondDog he had lost the bet and gave a link to the thread.

Some mod deleted my post and soon thereafter deleted the thread.

DiamondDog has a mod in his back pocket.

But he knows, I know, and I'm sure many remember how DiamondDog panicked when the trade was made

... and how wrong he ended up being (not to mention him being a WELSHER).

Funny to think NHL Captain Bo makes le$$ than AHL Cory....
