NHL Burning Questions: Minnesota Wild

Christopher Hanwinkel – USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the latest entry in THN.com’s ongoing ‘The Three Important Questions’ series. Here, we ask three key questions for each NHL team ahead of the start of the 2022-23 regular season. We have three important Minnesota Wild questions on file today.

Three interesting questions for THN WILD in 2022-2023:

1. Will Marc-Andre Fleury and Philip Gustafsson’s new goalkeepers win in Wild? Despite the franchise’s record of 53 wins and 113 standings, Wilde was blown out of the air in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs when the St. Louis Blues beat them in six games. GM Bill Guerin’s big gamble on the salaries of aged veterans Ryan Suter and Zach Parise has not paid off, and Minnesota once again failed to win a single playoff game for the first time since the 2014 post-season. But while Wild had topped the score 19-5 in their four losses to the Blues, there was no sense that Minnesota needed a different tandem at the net.
