Yes, they will. Okay, maybe not this year; given how tight the standings are in the Western Conference, they may not even make the playoffs. I was actually going to do some research on the team and their playoff chances, but I have neither the time nor the inclination to do so now. It seems to my relatively uneducated brain that the Wild will need a ton of things to go right if they want to make the playoffs, though. They aren't a fast team and they don't score a ton; their 135 goals scored ranks 13th in the West. They don't give up many goals though, either, thanks to their strong defense and goaltending. The Wild have allowed just 138 goals this season, good for fourth in the West. If they are going to sneak into the playoffs, and make some noise once they get there, it will take the acrobatics of Niklas Backstrom.
