Parise expected to practice Thursday, but "half speed, half intensity" costs Wild on Wednesday

The Wild threw away a winnable game against a beatable Vancouver opponent Wednesday night. The good news is Zach Parise is close to returning.

Wild: Zach Parise misses practice, doubtful for Wednesday's game

Zach Parise did not practice with teammates Monday, meaning the veteran Minnesota Wild forward probably won't return to game action until Friday at the earliest.

Wilderness Walk: Gotta Stay Positive Edition

Good news today. The Wild beat the Predators, 4-1. Mikko Koivu played in his 700th game, and it was a great one. Ryan Suter scored his first goal against his old team. Jonas Brodin scored his first goal of the season. Zach Parise skated with the team, and seems on track to return soon. Jason Zucker is actually fine. Really. Nate Prosser punched James Neal in the face, which is an example of Nate Prosser being useful, which isn't something that always happens. I'm sure I could think of something negative to say if I thought about it longer, but I don't want to, and today is not the right...

Postgame: Wild gets redemption on and off the scoreboard in win over Nashville

Game 19: Predators @ Wild

Home sweet home. After a disappointing road trip where the Wild never led, had a nasty flu bug and dealt with more injuries, they now return to St Paul to begin a four-game homestand. Tonight they welcome divisional foe the Nashville Predators. Should be a very a hostile environment considering some guy named James Neal took out Zach Parise. Parise was cleared for (no contact) practice today and is closer to returning. Jonas Brodin looks good to go after he was a late-scratch on Thursday. Jason Zucker is also dressing tonight after suffering a lower-body injury against Boston. Nashville got...

Wild return to Pittsburgh 10 months later with a whole new attitude

Mikko Koivu called it "embarrassing." Zach Parise said his team had become "so easy to play against." Mike Yeo said the word unflappable "is not in our vocabulary right now."

Zach Parise skating, but still waiting

Wild winger Zach Parise has resumed skating, but he won't accompany the team on a two-game trip that starts Tuesday in Pittsburgh--the scene of the Wild's lowest ebb last season.

Wilderness Walk: Keeping Those Horizons Open Edition

It's the start of the week, all kinds of things could happen. Good morning, and happy Monday. The Wild are practicing in the Cities today before heading out East for games in Pittsburgh and Boston this week. There should be an update on Zach Parise's health sometime today, and presumably a forward call up. Keranen? Bertschy again? Bulmer for real this time? A Unicorn? Nate Prosser in a wig? Who knows! Today's song is an odd appearance from the MC5's Rob Tyner later in his life. Truly lovely. Wild News Hashtag Hockey Podcast episode 40: Thomas Edison’s internet and the Connor McDavid rap...

"Advanced" Stats and the Problems Around Them

As some of you may remember, Zach Parise came out last year against the dump-and-chase and in favor of carrying the puck into the offensive zone. This was followed by the NHL adding some "advanced" stats to its website. On the other hand, Paul Bissonnette wrote an article for the Players' Tribune in which he states: "Ultimately, teams don't draft based on Corsi or possession numbers. You draft a player because you've watched how they perform on the ice and then consider their potential to improve." In short, Biz-Nasty isn't in favor of the advanced stats. For this response, Bissonnette was...
