Jose Theodore is becoming the man of the hour for the Wild. In the past week, Theodore has registered 46 saves in a 3-2 overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks and 40 saves Thursday night in a 3-1 win over the New York Rangers in front of 18,200 at Madison Square Garden.

Interesting how the lesser paid goaltender does a better job.

I've said all year they needed to get rid of Backstrom and his salary for a punch on the offensive line come trade deadline. The AHL goalie they traded to Boston for draft picks (cant spell name, not even going to try), they should have held on to him as a back-up for Theodore. Then come off season - drop Theodore and get a proven, winning goalie thru FA.

Even if they make it to the PO's - they're not a PO team. They dont have the make-up to survive the 1st round, let alone 4 more. The loss against NYI was a tell tale sign. Time to think about next year...again.

It'll be interesting to see what the Wild brass do when the contracts of some of the cream puff players on the team are up, thats for sure.
