Hopefully Fonzie is scratched. Based upon his play, he's had his 15 minutes of fame and its time to sit him. I am not Minnesota born so I could care less that he played at UMD. A player could have grown up on the Equator, and if he contributed to the Wild winning the Cup, that's fine with me.

Fonzie is not the problem on this team. Actually thought he had a decent game last night. Heater should be the obvious scratch, but only because we can't scratch a center (Zenon or Brodziak).

Mister Fonzarelli looked engaged this last contest, leave him in and just tell him to stop taking penalties. I don't think it matters as much as one might think who they leave out as long as its not Parise and Suter

The penalties on Fonz as well as others in this game were weak. The double minor called on Zenon should get the ref reprimanded.

Ok, can Haula please get a month with the team to see what he has over a large sample size? It's doing nobody any good by playing musical chairs with Zucker and Haula. It's not fair to Zucker or Haula. Let them find some kind of consistency. Also, the only the worse than paying Heatley all that money and not have him perform is paying Heatley all that money and him hurt the team! Scratch Heatley! I understand the team would be benching a hefty salary, but better he be scratched and do nothing than getting paid huge dollars to make turnovers and make the team worse! Coyle and Nino are great players, not at all worried about them.

Wild shuffles lineup. I have seen this headline too many times and that's not a dig on you Russo.

Rand could use this headline every game. Line changes, players called up, players sent down... I'm losing faith in Yeo.

I always find it interesting how out of touch some of the commenters are on the subject. Mr. Fontaine is from Canada. Yes, he played at UMD but that does not make him a native Minnesotan. That being said, Heatley needs to be released. I offers absolutely nothing and takes up space and opportunity for others to contribute. This team lacks vocal leadership. Even the coach will never call out the payers for a poor performance. Give the C to a real leader like Parise and fide a true #1 center. As for Brodziak, he couldn't hit an open net from 5 feet and is no longer effective killing penalties. This team will not make the playoffs with their current situation..

We will win all the remaining games if: Yeo and Fletch are fired, Brodzy, Heater, Mitchell, Konopka, Rupp, Cooke, Koivu, Spurgeon, Stoner, and Ballard are all released. Did I miss anybody?
