We discuss how he was almost immediately thrust into a top line role and how him pairing with Jared Spurgeon and being the more defense oriented one of the pair helped them both. We discuss the potential for Middleton to be signed long term and how he represents a shift in what the Wild used to look for defensively compared to where their team is at now.

    On today's episode of Locked on Wild, we evaluate the 2021-22 season of Ryan Hartman. We look at all of the individual records Hartman set, from goals to points to faceoffs. We also debunk what appeared like a quiet second half of the season for Hartman. We discuss whether or not Hartman should continue to center the Kaprizov line, and why he is such a good fit on the top line.

    On today's episode of Locked on Wild, we discuss some of the biggest storylines for the offseason with Alex Micheletti and Zach Zeman. We start by discussing Kevin Fiala. Which teams make the most sense as trade partners? We look at the draft order for the first half of this year's NHL Draft, and try to narrow in on teams with multiple first round picks, or with an obvious desire to improve their offense. We also discuss the goalie situation for the Wild. Is a tandem of Cam Talbot and Marc-Andre Fleury the best route to go?

    On today's episode of Locked on Wild, we look at Bill Guerin's recent comments further solidifying his decisions to come in the offseason. We look at the chances this Wild team "Runs it Back" by looking at the scoring they had this year, and what is going to lead to that number being lower in 2022-23. We look at regression candidates, as well as a very obvious departure from the lineup. We do take into consideration a full season from Matt Boldy, and Marco Rossi entering the picture next year. But even saying all of this, the goal differential numbers don't even factor in any sort of regression from the defense and goaltending for the Wild next season. All in all, if things don't go well this may be a season in which we see Bill Guerin make some deadline moves with the biggest buyout years still to come.

    On today's episode of Locked on Wild, we recap a 6-2 win for the Wild in Game 2. We look at how the Wild flipped the script and beat the Blues at the same things they used to grab a game 1 win. We look at the defense helping Marc-Andre Fleury and him rewarding them with some big saves. We also discuss how close the game was to a tipping point before Fleury stepped in and kept things where they were. We discuss Kirill Kaprizov taking the lead with his biggest playoff performance to date, and why Tyson Jost upping his performance should not be a surprise considering his Playoff experience.
