Went to the Gopher hockey today and great that they won, but wonder could they win due to the coach and his style that he has instilled into his players? Have been watching Yeo for almost 3 long years and I still cant figure out his system... Been watching hockey and attending games for over 50 years and the systems are easy to figure out but not Yoe's We need a coaching change to instill into the players some energy and consistency on the ice. Dont see much of that at all. Just like watching jackrabbits on skates most of the time

I get the NHL center ice stations, and last Monday they showed the Av's practicing almost the whole day on tape to tape passing in the offensive-defensive and neutral zones and how to shoot the puck over the goalie How much time do the Wild spend in practice to become precise in thier passing tape to tape and I dont see much shooting high over the goalie at all by the Wild

To all the Wild fans on this line How much better would the Wild be if they had Patrick Roy or a coach similar to his style and personality... Let me know, I think its time for a new coach, am tired of seeing stoic Yeo behind the bench writing on his little white tablet all the time... I want some energy and enthusiam behind the bench to get the players going.. which I have not seen yet going on 3 long years, its the same old same old type of hockey and that is why we did not renew our seasons tickets for the Wild

One last thing Please send Brodziak down to Iowa or trade and get what you can for him, he does nothing out on the ice and he cant use the excuse that he has been sick He has missed 5 breakaways in the last few games cant even come close to hitting the net, gave up the puck to Bjustad in Fla, gave up the puck to Frolik in Wpg and also Ladd who almost scored, and he goes and boards players who are not even near the puck or going to get the puck just to make it look like he is going something on the ice, he does not skate anymore... nothing nothing nothing not worth the 3 mil a year
