Afternoon Line

“So, I like the changes that we made, and I think that it really puts us in a good position for next year. Absolutely, no question, and we talk about that internally.

“Mikko Koivu, we think he is the core of our franchise. We’ve got a great defense, we’ve got a great goaltender, good defensemen, good forwards, and now we’ve got to build around that. We think with Mikko and Brent Burns and [Niklas] Backstrom as kind of being the [leaders of the] offense, the defense and the goaltending. We think that we’re in a really good position to build around those three players.”

-Wild Owner Craig Leipold.  More from Sid Hartman of the Star Tribune.
