Win one, lose one and then start making excuses as to why we lost such as Koivu and Clutter being out. Can we just stop with the fallacy that this team is a playoff team. But wait a second...I can't wait till next year. Until then let's continue to rest on our Colorado run.

Backstrom needs to go. He is not consistent in goal tending. Keep theodore and bring up kubidan!

Isn't the coach supposed to be the main "leader", or am I wrong. So who steps up when Richards is sleeping, Its so easy for Richards to cop out by saying they need a leader to step up-look in the mirror Todd.

Totally embarrassed to be a Minnesota Wild fan once again. I get so excited when they start doing well and then they rip your heart out. I have tickets to the Dallas/Wild game tonight. If I didn't have such great seats I wouldn't be going. I guess they are preparing for the offseason already.

I wish the Wild all the best in this playoff run but after watching the first period (we live on the west coast so the game was on at 5:00) my wife and I went to dinner. When we came back I watched San Jose play Vancouver in one of the most entertaining games of the season. The Wild simply don't come close to having the talent that these teams have. Honestly, I think Richards has done a pretty amazing job to get the Wild this close to the playoffs with the talent that he's working with.

Let's be honest. The Mild are a bad team with very little talent. The Mild's best forward (you name him) might be good enough to be on the Canucks or Sharks 3rd line. This notion that management has of sneaking into the playoffs is pure folly. Little Cliffy and Toddy are in way over their heads, and the owner is a buffoon. This team should have been sellers at the trade deadline with all the price gouging that was going on for middling 3rd and 4th line players. Instead they fell asleep at the wheel again and but the team back another 2-3 years by struggling to be just less than mediocre. Ten years minimum before this team is even close to being a legitimate contender, and that's only if the poor souls who are brought in to clean up Little Cliffy's and Toddy's mess, after they're summarily dismissed, don't foul things up as well. The Mild are a completely rudderless team from top to bottom.

Way to go Fletch, no sell into the trade deadline, fine decision!

You want a better NHL hockey team? Quit going to the X. Why spend money on talent when your fan base comes no matter who Richards and Fletcher throws out on the ice. Quit going to the games and you will force them to spend money on free agents to get the fans back. Giving up my season tickets last year was the best move I have made in years!
