With two roster cuts yet to make, Wild coach Mike Yeo said Thursday he still is not certain who will stay and who will go. His comments after practice, however, made clear his current feelings about forwards Jason Zucker and Mikael Granlund.

Parise Koivu Pominville Heatley Coyle Fontaine Cooke Brodziak Mitchell Zucker Granlund Niederreiter IA: Konopka Trade: Dowell Then Bring Rupp back in the fold when they send Dumba back to Red Deer after 9 games.

By "IA" I mean inactive, not Iowa (for Konopka).

You can't have Zucker, Granlund, Niederreiter playing fourth-line minutes.

Send Konopka & Rupp down, they're worthless, sign Steckel to play on the fourth line.

Is Yeo going to stick it to Zucker yet again. Zucker is so much better and has more upside than a worthless Konopka. We need scoring. Who do you think would provide that. Konopka was a horrible signing as it did nothing to address our scoring needs. The more I see of Yeo and Fletcher, the more concerned I get. Wild better go deep in the playoffs this year. Fletcher has had enough time to mold this roster.

And for what its worth, Brodziak's entire 2012 season was a flop. Seems he is untouchable and Yeo fails to address his issues. Brodz receives a nice paycheck yet his production was horrible last year.

dirtydogs, Last season was last season. Let's wait and see what Brodziak and the rest of the Wild do this season. We still have a ways to go to be competitive with the Hawks, Kings, Bruins and Penguins. Once again we'll need the young players to step up their level of play to equal their early hype.
