Best Minnesota Wild Betting Sites

They call Minnesota the state of hockey, so naturally hockey found itself in a state of shock when owner Norm Green moved the Minnesota North Stars, who’d called the state home since entering the NHL as an expansion team in 1967, to Dallas following the 1992-93 season. Hockey-mad Minnesota went without an NHL team for seven seasons and it just seemed wrong that there were mutliple NHL teams in Florida and California, but not in an area of the U.S.A. where a vast majority of American-born NHLers were produced. [+]

That all changed when the Wild entered the league as an expansion franchise in 2000. While they’ve struggled to find postseason success, no one can question that the Wild have been a solid success off the ice.

Give the Minnesota Wild credit for thinking outside of the box they have situated themselves in since arriving on the NHL scene as an expansion franchise in 2000. By hiring Bruce Boudreau as coach, it’s abundantly clear that the Wild are seeking to shake their image as the dullest team in the National Hockey League, a club that put defense first, foremost and always.

On the other hand thinking that Boudreau, a coach who has posted a winning record in postseson play in just two of his eight seasons as an NHL head coach, is the guy who’s finally going to get them over the top and successful past the first round of the playoffs – something this franchise hasn’t done since the 2002-03 season – well that might be a bit of a reach.

The foundation of the hockey world was shaken just a little bit when in the summer of 2012, the two most sought-after unrestricted free agents in the NHL – forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter – chose the Wild over the most traditional and traditonally powerful destinations that not only were available to them but coveted adding the pair of stars to their roster.

This was supposed to be a sign that the Wild had arrived and were ready to skate with the big boys in the NHL but in reality that just hasn’t been the case. Instead, Parise (New Jersey Devils) and Suter (Nashville Predators) have found themselves playing for a team not unlike the teams they left – all about checking and shy of scoring depth.

Minnesota Wild Standings Right Now

This is where you can find out where the Minnesota Wild are currently located in the NHL standings, in both the Central Division and wildcard picture.  [+]

The Wild are a franchise that’s endured one losing season since 2002 and won an average of 42 games per season between 2013-14 and 2015-16. But that doesn’t add up to a hill a beans in the ultra-competitive NHL Central Division.

Despite that consistently solid regular-season performance, over those three campaigns the Wild finished fourth, fourth and fifth in the Central and sixth, seventh and eighth in the Western Conference.

How To Win At Minnesota Wild Betting

A lack of depth at all positions is one key element that’s held the Wild back from moving up the NHL ladder and nowhere is this more evident than with the club’s defensive corps. If the Wild are on the ice there’s an almost 50 per cent chance that Ryan Suter will be occupying one of the two spots along the Minnesota blueline.

Suter played an average of 28:35 per game during the 2015-16 NHL season, which was second-highest in the league but believe it or not, was a decrease in workload for the workhorse defender. Suter played an NHL-high 29:03 in 2014-15, and also topped the NHL at 29:24 in 2013-14. Suter also led the NHL in ice time during his first season with the Wild in 2012-13 but at just 27:16 per game, he probably felt like it was a piece of cake.

You can’t say that the Minnesota Wild haven’t received their money’s worth from Zach Parise. Parise, whose father J.P. Parise was an original Minnesota North Star in 1967, returned to the state of his birth as a free agent in 2012 and he’s finished first or second in scoring for the Wild in each of his four seasons with the team.

What Parise lacks is a supporting cast. On a team that can’t score, he’s led the Wild in goals in three of his four seasons, topping 25 goals in three of those four years and leading the team with 18 goals during the lockout-shortened 48-game season that was 2012-13. Over that same time frame, Nino Neiderreiter is the only other Wild player to record as many as two 20-goal seasons.
