Iowa Wild Will Only Go As Far As John Curry Takes Them

Posted By: Lisa Donovan on 8/20/2015

In 2014-2015, the Iowa Wild had the leagues worst record in the American Hockey League with 23 wins and 50 points. Iowa ranked 29th in goals scored and 27th in goals allowed. The AHL has 30 minor league hockey teams one each associated with an NHL team so to be in the bottom 4 in both goals scored and goals allowed is absolutely unacceptable, especially when you got nobody who can get you 50 points or finish in the top 50 in points scored. The Iowa Wild's leading scorer ranked 51st among all AHL players in points which shows you that this team has nobody on offense or defense that they can turn to.

One player Iowa will have to rely heavily on is John Curry. Curry is still the Wikles-Barre Scranton Penguins leader for most career wins by a goalie with 103 in Wilkes-Barre. Curry's save percentage and GAA was better in Iowa then it was in Wilkes-Barre. The most fascinating thing though is that Curry has a losing record on the Iowa Wild. It's not his fault though.

Curry has nobody on offense or defense on this AHL squad that he can depend on. Minnesota needs to send some of their 2015 draft picks to Iowa after time the juniors because the Iowa Wild need an identity. The team won't sell any tickets without someone who can attract the Iowa Wild fan base. People say a goalie is more important than a defense. If that was the case, then Curry would have a winning record with this no name defense.

It's doubtful that Iowa did enough to improve this team right now to contend. For now, John Curry will have to carry this squad in 2015-2016 when the AHL resumes this fall.
