Granlund misses shootout like Bombay in Mighty Ducks and three Wild prospects end up being WJC champs. Mikko Koivu gets injured while the rest of the team follows their captain. Minnesota blows a three-goal lead against Nashville, falls from the top to the bottom, games get boring and we play FSN Bingo. Charlie Coyle becomes playoff MVP, Mario Lucia wins a title and Granlund Watch was a success. Mathew Dumba becomes the newest "First Round Bust" and the months to years of waiting for Zach Parise to come home happen on July 4th.
HOLY CRAP WE SIGNED PARISE AND RYAN SUTER!
Everyone gets excited and 4K season tickets are bought for naught. The NHL locks out the players on September 15th. Again. Prospects go to Houston and elsewhere while fans sit and wait for the State of Hockey to play a professional game.
Happy New Year from First Round Bust!
