Congratulations Wild, you're now officially out of a lottery pick.

where was this heroic run while they still had a chance to make the playoffs?

Just like the vikes, this is not the time to start winning and screwing up the draft. These wins mean nothing...

Thank you JpWeisser, what a mess this team is and the Blackhawks may want to get a goalie that can make saves

Classic Wild. Win when it means nothing other than playing yourself out of the Yakupov lottery.

Entertaining game. Good to see some goals and the players supporting each other.

With 1 win the Wild dropped 4 picks. Seriously? Man up and just mail it in and salvage some dignity.

Keep up the great work losing that better draft pick Wild. You lost the season when it counted and now you want to further insult us by making sure we get a crappy draft spot. This sucks worse than this dismal season.

I agree with everybody...I just can not believe they are going to do this by getting hot at the very end of the season and blowing their opportunity to get a great pick. Russo has talked endlessy about how the Wild are a "middle of the pack team" because they haven't had that terrible year where they were rewarded for the high pick. Now, they finally have that season and they are going to blow it. So frustrating. Also, what's up with these teams they're beating? They're all playoff teams fighting for position and they let the Wild beat them? Guarantee none of them will go too far because they obviously lack the killer instinct. Yes, even the Hawks...

The Wild should be playing only Houston Aero's players (like they did for defense all season)and give Koivu and the other "scorers" :0 time off early to get their golf clubs rounded up and quit ruining our draft pick.
