The 8-1 defeat -- the worst in team history -- stretched a winless run to six games. "Emotionally deflated," the coach called his team.

I just got home from the gym. SO HAPPY I DID NOT HAVE TO ACTUALLY ENDURE THIS LOSS VIA TV. Safely say the fella's have officially thrown in the towel.

I am so proud of Minnesota hockey!

Hahahaha! Maybe it is time to clean house. There isn't a dozen players on the roster that I would keep.

Turn out the lights. Good luck Wild management paying those salaries next year to your 4th tier, expansion team talent. Fans, If you have a brain, Do not, and I repeat, DO NOT buy a season ticket for next year. By doing so, you are telling management that you are an incompetent idiot.

MR.... "overwhelm" just doesn't seem to be quite descriptive enough.

And the Predators overcome 2-goal deficit to beat Buffalo, putting Wild in a deeper pit!

Okay, enough. Fletcher deserves a ton of blame for the Wild's free fall. He has done nothing to improve the roster and did nothing at the trade deadline...either to improve the teams chances to make the playoffs this year, or to rebuild for next year. His trading Leddy was terrible. His offseason acquisitions were mediocre...AT BEST. If this offseason he fails to bring the Wild a STRONG playoff contending team next year, it is time for out clueless owner to get a seasoned GM and start the gosh dang rebuilding process all over again. Which has become the perpectual state of the Minnesota Wild. Sorry fans, but Fletcher is not getting it done. Unless you love being a team that is always fighting for the very last playoff spot. Next year may be the last year of the Fletcher experiment.

Ha, ha, ha, ha! That was the Wild I know! No offense, no defense, no prospects, no leadership! I forgot to watch close enough to see if they played the "Call and reserve your playoff tickets now!" speech. That would have been awesome!
