I hate this team. I hate it so bad. No offense, players made of glass, and inconsistent goaltending. Overall I hate being a Wild fan.

Stick a fork in 'em. This teams almost as bad as the Twins and Vikings were last season. I'm tired of reading about them losing.

Having been beaten by Columbus twice in the span of a week, the Wild just might be the worst team in the NHL. Oh, and Cal, a puck handler you're not!!

Do something about it Wildforlife, stop buying tickets and cracker jacks at the game, it would be good for your mental and physical health and maybe Leo would feel some pain. Sure they stink, when the gm and owner are all about replacing skaters and less about winning for the people buying the tickets, this is what you get and the player on the ice know it. Not Backstroms fault Wildforlife, they have hanged his butt out to dry the last 3 games at home in the first period, like the players don't know what they should be doing and I like Mister Yeo Chuckling with the referee during the last game caught on tv, not making the playoffs in no laughing matter if your a fan like you are Wildforlife

Who do we pin this one on? Wellman, Staubitz, Zids, Schultz, Zanon?

Cant wait for summer and to see what happens to this team after that.

This team rivals Tubby's Goofer basketball team for most unwatchable in town. i'll give Tubby's crew a bit of a break as they are at least amateurs...Re Koivu...how would you even notice whether he plays or not?? This guy is nothing better than a second line center on the majority of NHL teams...

According to Schultzy bro, on twitter, "The Wild seem to be missing something tonight!" Yah, thats it, its because we traded Schultz. We will never win another game without him. Sounds like MR is bitter over losing him too? What a sad display the Mild put on tonight. If I were coach, I would think a good bag skate might get their minds right? Mikko Gaborik is done for the year, along with Latindress and PMB. Get the young kids in there playing, have fun the rest of the year! Enjoy being paid for a game you love to play. Get Hackett some games, rest Backstrom. Have some fun out there! Even if we did make the playoffs, it will be for three games, big deal. I would rather have the guys off, resting for the big push next year.

Please bring Chad Rau back and put Mr. Christenson in the press box where he belongs or better yet, send him down to Houston. I don't care what kind of a specialist he is as his minus 11 in 12 games with no points is off the charts unacceptable. Put Powe at center and play Kassian if you have to but please keep Mr. Christenson off the ice.
