WEAK leadership. Point fingers where you will: Koivu, Yeo, Fletcher...but something needs to change IMHO...

I was dreading having tickets to Saturday's game.

This team simply cannot score. Same story, different year.

Yeo, achieving so little with so much. Not an NHL ready coach!

two teams Montreal and the Wild underachieved at the end of the year and are both golfing tomorrow..one will do something in the offseason and make changes...the other won't...guess which one the Wild is?

Chicago is a 50% better club than the Ws. Diddle with coaching, schemes, etc., and it's not going to change the fact that they're not an upper tier team. A couple of moves like getting a new coach, new captain, new tape for the sticks, or whatever, won't make all that much difference in the outcome. Talent wins out most every time, and we're short in more than a few areas. Next year will look pretty much the same as this season. Not bad, not great. Period.

they give up goals way too easily. and they don't score goals. it's just that simple. chicago and many of the teams they played at the tail end of the season scored goals at the drop of a hat. i wouldn't get your hopes up for this team. nothing they have is impressive except Parise.

if you fire Tubby after one victory and a loss in post season...how does Yeo keep his job? Tubby had talent too but couldn't deliver...how's yeo any different? I say show him the door and have Fletcher following behind...Pomenville for all that talent? Rupp for Powe? Konopka for not signing Latendresse? Havlet for Heatly? Not a good track record..and let's Burns...still playing...Havlet...still playing...Latendress...still playing...even Zenopka...still playing...wow...all this great new talent didn't do squat...bring up the kids but for heavens's sakes bring up some size and skill
