Ha ha ha ha ha! This Mild are hilarious. Looks like this "team" is still rebuilding. Can't wait until they fire Yeo, and i cannot wait until Koivu is no longer on this pathetic excuse for a hockey team. Fire everyone, trade someone.

This is getting stupid. Can we please end the Yeo era. It simply isn't working. These guys are just not playing for him.

Disgusting!. How does Chuck Fletcher keep his job?. For every good thing he's done he's made twice as many gaffs. Mike Yeo should be coaching Mancinni's broom ball team.Not an NHL team.. We have Thee worst Defenseman in the NHL, hands down. Now I have listen to these horrible announcers we have tell us how good this guy and that guy played even though they just lost a 3 pip lead at home to a team that played last night.. Sad!

I agree Yeo is lost, starting to look like Mike Tice. I'm all for Laviollette getting a shot right now. Heck, bring Mike Keenan out of retirement and get some grit and discipline in this club

I'd take Peter Lavellete in a second. Seems like a coach who will get in your face. To even think the Wild are a playoff team is absurd. Glad I'm not a season ticket holder....ouch.

Worst coaching staff I have seen. Every coach can make adjustments during the game except the Wild. News flash Yeo.....Brodziak is not a defensive specialist and Heatley is TERRIBLE on the power play. But Spurgeon up there; at lease he will get a loose puck, make a pass that is actually to the stick and his shot is quicker and more accurate than Heatley.

Unbelievable. Just when you think it can't get any worse....we lose to a bad team at home after being up by 3 goals....and THEY were playing the 2nd game on a back to back.

What the eff was that?!?! First 25 minutes looked like the team from early in the year. Last 35 minutes look like a bad Pee Wee team trying to figure out how to play defense. Awful!!

I hope the owner of the Wild is not trying to become Norm Green the second. Players do not work for a poor coach, general manager does not want to hire a coach that has experience, owner has a losing team and losses money. Get it?.....vicious cycle.

Hey Fletcher...you have some explaining to do. Are we sure Doug Risebrough still isn't the GM of this team.
