On today's episode, Tony and Joe discussed:

  • Last week's Minnesota Wild scrimmages
  • New defensive pairings - will they work?
  • Can Zach Parise mesh with Kirill Kaprizov
  • Marco Rossi out with an Upper Body Injury
  • Our hopes for Rossi this year
  • Point Expectations for Kaprizov this year
  • Which Nick - Bjugstad or Bonino - will benefit more from their star linemates?

NOTE: I screwed up a tiny bit, Kaprizov scored 1.08 points per game in the KHL last year, not 1.8. You can read that article here, all the math's right there.
