The Minnesota Wild lost 3-2 at Las Vegas Tuesday night.  Minnesota is on the outside looking in for a playoff spot.  Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today.  He thinks the Wild still be a playoff team.


The Vikings/Packers game Monday night may not have the importance that many fans want it to have.  The Vikings could clinch a playoff spot Saturday with a loss from the Rams and Green Bay is unlikely to not win the NFC North because they just need beat lowly Detroit Week 17.

The Gopher football team is expected to sign 25 players today during college football's national letter of intent day.  Jim says recruiting is easier for P.J. Fleck because of the success they've had this season.
