Wild Buying Out Cam Barker

Once a former No. 4 overall pick filled with promise, Cam Barker is hitting a low point in his career. The Wild placed him on waivers yesterday, and any team in the league can take on the rest of the 25 year old defenseman's salary if they pick him up on waivers. Supposedly Baker's agent has contacted the team, pleading with them to keep Barker on the team for next seson.

Barker has had two spotty seasons with the Wild. He has been injured for parts of both of them but the production simply has not been there.

You know, Cam, we really wish this would have worked out. The Wild really believed in you, I mean thye spent the no.4 pick in the 2004 draft on you, but this really isn't working out. You didn't pan out the way the Wild had hoped and you will likely play elsewhere because of it.

The Minnesota Wild have Finally Hired a New Coach

Hey everyone the Minnesota Wild have finally hired a new coach. This past friday, they hired Mike Yeo as the new head coach of the team. In my opinion, this was a pretty spotty decision. They probably should have hired someone who knew a thing or two more about coaching an NHL team. This guy has no experience.

Butttt, it will also be a lot of fun to see what he can do. I hope he turns out to be a great coach and that the Wiild get their mojo back. I was looking for some good deals on tickets but couldn't find any. Then I decided to look a little harder and found this site called "Ticket King" They did an unbelievable job getting me tickets and I can't wait to use them next year. Buy Wild Tickets now!

NHL Draft

The Wild will be hosting the 2011 NHL draft at the Xcel Energy Center. The draft will take place on June 24th, and 25th.

“The Draft is a signature event, and, as our League gets younger and younger, it offers a preview of the NHL's future,” said Gary Bettman, NHL Commissioner. "The great fans in Minnesota will get a first-hand view of tomorrow's stars.”

The Wild sell out so many games and Minnesotans are so crazy about their Wild that it should sell out. The Wild have the 10th pick in the draft.
