All time funniest promotion......SA, for home games. For EVERY goal the Wild score take that off the price of a gallon of gas. I can envision a lot of one cent price reductions. LOL.

Why should we care anymore? It's clear the coach and players don't.

Newsflash to Craig Leopold and Chuck Fletcher Want new chemistry on the Wild-Get a new coach. The one goal wonders cant even beat the Panthers What a helter skelter game again. Why would a coach put Heatly on the PP when he lost the puck in his own end, he has to wind up to shoot and Thomas can take care of that, he does not have a quick wrist shot, Granland who Yeo said again tonite, it will come,it will come he will score for us, gave a pass right on to Versteegs tape, he almost scored, short pass to El Nino, and Vieullux, lost face offs, but he has to learn to score... why??? do you not know how to score, if not get out of hockey... Dineen was mad at the official and yelling at them for some of the calls, but our coach he just was writing on his notepad, maybe as to what to say in his press conference after the game... GET A NEW COACH WITH SOME PASSION for the game and who knows how to play percentage hockey... This is getting to be a sad joke to the state of Minn Maybe since Brodin scored, we should put all defensemen out with Parise to score more than one goal. You can hear and see the frustration with Parise and Suter.They are getting tired of losing nite after nite They will not make the playoffs with Chgo=Blues and Colo in our division...no way its going to be a long season glad I did not renew my season tickets

Yeo continues to play Heatley when he contributes absolutely NOTHING to this team! There are no adjustments like he claimed he wanted to be better at making. Sending 3rd and 4th liners to the second line are not legitimate adjustments. You have a pure goal scorer sitting a few hours away in Iowa. The Wild need goals ergo bring up the goal scorer immediately! Also Granlund for all the praise the FSN homers are giving him has the look of being a responsible but low scoring forward in this league. The Wild have 3 wins and 6 losses. Not good enough to make the playoffs in the central this year!

Can they move Parise down several lines. Here's a horrible $7.5MM investment. 51 shots and less than an 8% shooting percentage. 0-2 on shoot outs. Can't win battles along the boards. The 51 shots have a combined length of 52 feet. Get real folks, another MN born bust on the Wild.

Wow, really shocked! Played hard, kept it close, scored ONE goal & lost in a shoot-out! And Koivu & Parise couldn't finish when it counted - stunned! But, hey, I'm sure we won "on the stats sheet", right? And that's what makes our rabid fans happy. When I looked last, "moral victories" didn't count in the 'ol standings.

Parise is not our problem. It's hard to score goals if you have a center that can't make plays. They keep moving Pominville off of the 1st line but he isn't the problem. Koivu is not a 1st line center and Heatley can't play in the NHL anymore. Grandlund looks better but isn't scoring or setting up goals. The third line was doing well together and the answer to goal scoring was to move Heatley to that line and they didn't generate any offense. If you replace Heatley with Zucker or Haula on the 2nd line, move Cook back to the third line and see if anyone will take Koivu for a bag of pucks and some practice jersey's, move Coyle to the lst. line and hire a real coach, we have a chance. Oh yah, play Harding every game but back to back's.

Parise is another Heatley, a power play specialist whose career is on the decline.
