So much BAD, so very little good. Thumbs up to inconsistency!!! Another lousy game by a team who has so many wrongs going that they're too numerous to list here. The BIGGEST one of all is Yeo and his ridiculous SYSTEM that OBVIOUSLY isn't WORKING!!! Get a new coach before it's too late this season!!

To Craig Leopold Please give the loyal Wild fans a Christmas gift and not renew Yeo's contract. If you think he is a NHL coach then you are being hood-winked. Get a new coach who knows how to motivate the team to win and knows how to play percentage hockey to win the games This team will not make the play offs not wih this type of coaching

This was the response to that debacle in Pittsburg?.. Disgusting losing to real bad Ranger's team.. Can't stand listening to these horrible announcers we have make excuses night in and night out.. This franchise needs a culture change in the worst way. Top to bottom.. Some goals and grit would be a good start..

Where to begin. I think Yeo is in trouble. We just can't score goals. Thought we might be a 7-8 playoff team, might be a stretch. Coyle in my view right now, over rated. Please bring Zucker up, he can't be any worse than 10-12 guys who are in the line up now. Lastly, couldn't imagine paying 40-90 bucks to watch this slop. Merry Christmas all.

My 10 year old son could have stopped that last goal Backstrom let in. EMBARRASSING.

In Fridays paper Yeo said Brodzy was playing really good and playing the way he wanted him to play Brodzy must have left his brains on the bench tonite against the Rangers. Tonite he could not clear the puck out of his own zone and that set up the first goal When Cooke made the hit behind the net and Moore was called for a penalty, what does Brodzy do he does a head lock on Brossard to give up the man advantage to the Wild Thats really fantastic hockey sense. At least he was not on the ice for the 3rd goal, and I put a end to my misery and turned the game off when it was 4-1 early in the 3rd period In ending. Granland was not the savior that everyone was banking on tonite He is still not aware of what is going on around him and who is coming at him along the boards. Please trade Brodzy,but then Yeo thinks he is playing great, so then I guess he did tonite as the Rangers won... Brodzy is not worth the 3 mil a year and hasnt been for going on 2 years now...

besides a possible coaching change, this team needs about 6-8 player replaced this summer to be a contender. We all know who these players are, no need to waste the type space listing them.

This is getting old. The Wild can't beat anyone on the road. More than one goal a game is impossible. Just think what their record might be if Harding didn't stand on his head every night. Time for a coaching change, plain and simple.

I have season tickets to the mens Gopher hockey team for years and have watched Haula for the last 3 years. He set up Bjustad for at least 90 percent of Bjustads goals and never really got the attention deserved Why does Yeo put Haula on the 4th line with Rupp??? Haula has speed,sniper shot and is big enough for defensive play I just dont understand Yeos thinking

Who in the Wild mgmt would sign Backstrom to a 3 year contract at 3 mil a year. I would have only offered 1 year and if he didnt like it let him walk and get another goalie Look at the teams out west who have 3 good goalies to go after cant believe the Wild did this The last goal by Krieder was a embarrasement to the fans of Minnesota Backstrom should hang his head on that one
