Detroit's four-goal second period was too much for the Wild to take.

Mister Know it all says, A sign of a hard working disciplined team is their willingness to play defense and compete. Was it an accident that the Red Wings found their offense this particular day or was it becasue they outworked the Wild. Looked to me like they turned it on and turned it off through out the game...... The Power play looks good but 5 on 5 the Wild are among the worst in the league, I don't know is there some reason we have to keep the lines tha same all of the time ? If you have such a problem with ego on this team that you can't let Parise off of the first line because you want to spead the wealth, what the heck ? example, koivou heatley can be your pretend first line so they know they are the best, stick Parise on the second line, I know he is your leading scorer but we just have to find a way to make him a second line guy and hope his ego does not cave in...... If you do this is the big fear from the coaching staff that Parises line does better thus hurting team chemistry further demotivating the all star and koivou....... The whole bit is confusing 12 periods of hockey with the superstars all playing together and 5 on 5 they stink, yes I am aware that Parise bounced the puck off of Zetterburgs rear but he would have done that playing with any ham and egger

Might want to start looking at goal tenders.

Can we get some defensemen who might actually put a body on someone? This is brutal.

The only problem with this team is the name on the front of the jersey. Doesn't matter who you put on the roster they still play for a team in Minnesota, and since 1991, that has meant "LOSER"

Setoguchi and Clutterbuck NON factors! I see a trade coming!

I know it's early but that was a soft effort out there tonight. It's nice to have guys like Suter, Brodin, Spurgeon (when healthy) and Gilbert but that also adds up to a very non physical set of d minus Stoner. I'd like to see a line with Brodziak and Clutterbuck set the tone physically early. Maybe PMB's not the right fit there. Still early though I know. The team could have used someone like Veilleux tonight. If they play like that against a mean/nasty team like St. Louis it will be over early.

Lets talk about the Captain. At first glance his numbers look OK. Four points in four games. That's not bad. But if you do a little digging you see that the four points are four assists. Not only that, each one of his four assists was a 2nd assist. Even more digging and you see that Mr. Parise had either the first assist or goal on each of Koivu's four second assists. Seems Mikko is doing one heck of a job riding the coattails of Mr. Parise. One of the luxuries of being a second line center playing on the first line. What makes it worse is seeing Parise consistently go to the dirty areas of the ice to get his points while Mikko stays on the half wall and continue not to shoot. Keep in mind that Parise is 3 inches and 15 pounds smaller that Mr. Koivu. I know the season is young, but its hard not to be concerned about the play of the Captain.

No let's talk about alibing for not clearing the front of the don't need to know a system to do that. That's hockey 101. Mr. Suter and you other dmen have got to start doing can't be like Dallas is right now, giving up 40 shots a game. Your goalie will get killed no matter how good he is. We don't need new goalies when need people to get physical and check for a change.

New players, same crappy play. Should have stayed locked out.

Why is it our defense appears to play at a pace like a "noon league" game ? Where is the speed and urgency ? It would be nice to see some of the opponents get laid out once in a while.
