Constantine on Wild prospects

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild off-season news Updated: April 16, 2010 - 12:39 PM

Good afternoon. Three more great games last night, including a couple overtimes -- Montreal's Tomas Plekanec following up his trash-talking of Jose Theodore with the overtime winner (and pumping up what will surely be an-already inflated free agent contract) and Vancouver's Mikael Samuelsson scored after one heck of a Canucks' forecheck.

Imagine a long forecheck actually ending in a goal!

Just wanted to jump on and share a couple links.

Here's Aeros broadcaster Joe O'Donnell chatting with soon-to-be former Aeros coach Kevin Constantine about the Wild prospects, and keep in mind Constantine already knows he's been fired.

Here's Andrew Ferraro's story in the Houston Chronicle on Constantine being fired

Good day.
