Heading into today’s first round of the NHL Draft, the Minnesota Wild are still picking gravel out of their teeth after being bulldozed by Anaheim in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
With two of the best defensemen in the game and a group of big, skilled forwards that relentlessly stormed the net, the Ducks rolled past Minnesota in five games and only lost four more en route to the franchise’s first Stanley Cup.
With that in mind, the Wild will be looking to emulate Anaheim’s blueprint for success. After qualifying for the playoffs for the first time since 2003, the Wild own six picks in this year’s draft, including the 19th selection in the first round.
