DENVER - OCTOBER 03:  Rick Rypien #37 of the Vancouver Canucks looks on against the Colorado Avalanche during NHL action at the Pepsi Center on October 3, 2009 in Denver, Colorado. The Avalanche defeated the Canucks 3-0.  (Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)

Rick Rypien lost his mind and probably many of his fans last night, after his non-sensical 3-minute fit of rage where he sucker-punched an opponent and then went after a fan. Not that I was ever a fan of his, but last night, he lost me for good.

If I was Mike Gillis, then I would have said goodbye to Rypien. Permanently.

Vancouver travels to Minny to take on an old enemy, although the fires of rivalry have died down recently. Particularly with the Wild struggling to compete while the Canucks challenge for the division crown. That said, even with the old trap-master Jacques Lemaire sipping martinis in retirement, the Wild are almost never an easy win at home.
