It was nice while it lasted.

Minnesota's Stanley Cup ambitions appear all but dashed after Saturday night's game, where Ryan Suter exited with a broken fibula. In desperate times such as these, people must step up to analyze the fallout.

So Tony and Joe are back from another unannounced hiatus. They quickly explain that, apologize, and get into the show, which is... pretty bleak, actually!

They discuss the fallout of Suter's injuries, including:

  • The fact that it's kinda incredible Minnesota will probably make the postseason despite the injuries
  • The collective blow that losing Suter and Jared Spurgeon during this time is
  • Will Nick Seeler be able to continue playing well in a Top-4 role?
  • Will call-up Carson Soucy contribute to the Wild?
  • Jonas Brodin taking Suter's place
  • Matt Dumba becoming the Wild's #1 defenseman
  • Do the Wild have any shot this postseason?
  • Will Suter's injury be the excuse Chuck Fletcher needs to get his contract renewed

And more, including our thoughts on Jordan Greenway's debut!
