In 40 years of watching professional sports I have never seen a team begin such a high percentage of their games with seemingly no motivation and a distinct lack of mental preparation as the Wild. Isn't there someone involved with this team that can prepare and motivate them?

There is suppose to be 60 minutes to a hockey game, not 25 minutes, some of the Wild players forgot to show up for the first 35 minutes Sad game once again

Reader8 I totally agree with you 100% The coach does not motivate this team at all and the captain at least on the ice shows none at all. The fans are excited at the games as there is not much to get excited about Oh, how I wish we had Roy, Quenville,Hitchcock or Tippet for a coach who showed some passion for the game and inspired the players its the same old, same old hockey I have been waiting since 67 for a cup and I will die first before I see one here in Minn

Hey look everybody, it's the December Wild. Hopefully that is the last we seem of them for a while.

I wish this coach had the Guts to bench his favorite son #21 Klye Yeo, as he is worthless on the ice. Send him to the press box, or down to Iowa where the kids can show him how to play hockey. At Least Thierren of the Habs had the guts to bench Subban on his terrible play

Will someone on this line tell me why this coach put Haula on the 4th line? The annoucers have said over and over that he has shown great hustle but being on the 4th line will not get the chances to score which he does not... He is a very good player watched for 3 years at the U. He set up Bjustad for 89 % of his goals but never go credit for much of his play. Put him on another line, with speed

Where the heck has Pominville been in Parise and Whoivu?'s absence? I thought he was a proven, veteran leader but I haven't seen anything from him the last several games that would indicate that.

I remember saying last year that the reasons why the Wild was going to make the playoffs was because of the shortened season, they kinda did. This year they were going to be a machine when I heard Fletch talk at the State Fair because they had that ever so powerful camp.....hehe

I have said over and over again that the Wild will not make the playoffs as the Wild card team, Vancouver will be the Wild card. and even if they did, they would not make it past the first round if they played the Hawks or the Blues, let alone the Avs, Ducks or Sharks
