Erik Haula has been an enigma for Wild fans this season after an amazing postseason last year led fans into this season with high expectations of the former Golden Gopher. Unfortunately, Haula has not lived up to those expectations, even finding himself a healthy scratch for a stretch during the slums of the Wild’s season. Not to say that he has turned it around completely, but Haula has been better as of late, and this week added two goals and two assists to his point total. John Buccigross from ESPN, tell us how you feel.

Haula grabbed a goal and an assist in both games against Nashville and Colorado, and as mentioned with Fontaine, the fourth line with Haula, Fontaine and Brodziak had a phenomenal week, and in fact, Brodziak narrowly missed this list this week after a goal and two assists last week. The line has been matching up well, and could be a real weapon down the stretch and into the playoffs as a line that can score on a semi-regular basis while playing almost shutdown defense at the same time.
