Saturday's Dump & Chase: Finally a Chance to Gloat

The Preds make their way into the frozen tundra of Minnesota today for a game against the Wild. Anytime these two teams come together it’s hard not to think back to the 'family' decision that shattered our hearts and changed the course of both franchises’ futures forever. Well two years later the Wild still haven't made it past the second round of the playoffs and right now Suter, Parise and co. sit 8 points behind the Preds and 2 spots out of the playoff picture. So ha! The so-called Saviors of Minnesota have obviously failed to live up to the hype (ignoring their excellent individual play and 2 straight playoff appearances) everyone should take this moment in time to act unreasonably superior to our northern rivals and gloat over the fact that after two years of having no idea what we were doing, the Preds once again are in their rightful place over the flawed and evil Wild. This game also has the distinction of matching the two worst PP’s outside of the Buffalo city limits against one another…try not to fall asleep everyone.
