Mister Know it all says, the reason to panic if your a wild fan is because this prdictable behavior under Todd Richards, Yeo, Uncle Leo and finally Fletch is not new. That core foundation that took so so long to develope was tossed into the sewer when Uncle Leo came on board, Uncle Leo acts like many owners that buy something new, wants to change it, he did. There was a day when you played the Wild and you knew nothing was going to be easy, they were hard to play and they had players who were willing to work hard on defense.... Strong, credible, experienced leadership.... fine, DR had a few off years his last 2 or 3.......... You can't just throw skilled players in a line up and expect to be a winner unless yu have a sound solid culture, this is a short season and should favor a team that has its core leades in their 30's ..... I am a little surprised they are 2-2 and are absolutely horrinle 5 on 5 still

Is Granlund ready to be playing in the NHL?

How's that "get pucks deep" and fore-check working? When you keep giving up possession of the puck, it's hard to score 5 on 5.

Don't Worry, the Isle of Doctor Yeo. We will start panicking when you will have lost you're 3rd straight game in a row tonight.

I agee with Yeo and Suter re "not time to panic". Wild had no preseason games & 1or 2 practices, lots of new combinations on offense and defense and lots of young players! In one of his interviews Parise said "I hope the fans will be patient" while we learn and adjust to our new team mates and system! It's obvious from some of the early commenters that they will not be patient even though most fans can see the new high energy and effort put forth by our young and talented team!! The Wild have a bright future!!

I honestly believe this team would be a MUCH better scoring team if it moved Butch to the second line, Powe to the third, and either dropped Cullen to the fourth or just scratched him altogether and called up Zucker, moving Powe back to the fourth line. As much as I like Cullen, he's a useless ragdoll out there at this stage of his career. He can't stay on his feet, and he's almost invisible when he does. Chemistry is key, and we all know what Power, Brodziak, and Clutter can accomplish together as a third line. They were superb for the Wild last year through the first thirty games, until they were broken up. And to think what Butch and Granny could do with Seto is too enticing to pass up. Time to admit that Matt Cullen is not longer a top-9 forward.

Hey Caferev...we all get old. Yes...maybe time to retire...being invisible on the ice isn't good at all. Too early to panic...but when it gets to 12 games you're a quarter through your season...then you may start to worry.

The wild play in Minnesota...hence it the usual minnesota curse. Does not matter who the players are the curse says they are never to reach excellence.

Granlund has been VERY disappointing so far. Bring up Zucker...he is much better at this point.

Pretty amazing hearing folks dis Cullen. I would say he is playing better hockey than most of the unproductive forwards we have. Brodziak and Clutterbuck and Powe are definitely not 2nd line players, barely 3rd liners.
