The Wild are by far the most feminine team in the NHL. They like to yap but except for a couple of players, are too afraid to back up their words. Too bad Parise doesn't have the body size of several Wild woosies.

After, that, and for the most part, underachieving all year, just lose tomorrow and save us the trouble of watching you play in the playoffs. Maybe, if we can just get two higher end free agents this upcoming summer, just maybe, then we might have the talent to return to the playoffs...............No matter what happens tomorrow, there is no way YEo comes back, is there?

Playoffs on the line, at home vs. Calgary and Edmonton, lose both. Don't make playoffs no way Yeo comes back. Hello Lindy Ruff.

Huh you mean starting bruisers with broken feet and guys that cant score or skate is worse than having guys that can skate and score? Who would have thunk that?

If Phoenix folds, the first call Fletcher should make, presuming he survives this, is to get Dave Tippet up here pronto!!!

I don't know what was more humorous tonight: That Parise can't take a hit and starts crying? The 18,000 fans crying for a penalty every time someone touches Zach or when Clutterbuck Fell down on his partial break away and they started crying again? Or when Hall threw Clutterbuck down at the end of the game? But I guess the best one was the Knucklehead holding the "WE BELIEVE" sign after Mikkos goal! Honestly! The Wild need to pack it in. They simply don't deserve to go on!

I guarantee you Liepold is going to Colorado and if they lose will fire both Fletcher and Yeo on the spot. He's that pissed.

(raising hand)....but what about all the "top" prospects? i thought the Wild had the deepest organization in all of the NHL....seems to be more of a clever marketing campaign than the truth.
