A continual march to the penalty box led to a drubbing.

So much for our Stanley Cup run....

Another Mike Yeo inspired effort. I don't get these flatter than a pancake performances. Nothing looked good. I also don't understand the strategy. Seeems the players don't either.

Ok. Now can we quit giving this team too much credit for a few recent wins at home against lousy competition. So predictable. Go on the road get run out of the building. Granlund and Pommer pretty well invisible again. Send out anyone who's even a little physical you got those 2 cream puffs covered. No emotion, no passion!.. These overrated youngsters are just that. overated. I'm still waiting for them as a group to step up even semi consistently, when it really counts.. On the road. Pathetic once again,

When we're bad, we're really bad. We don't have the skill to overcome flat, emotionless performances. Our schedule is about to get as tough as it can get. Hopefully Parise can get on the ice for Chicago and give us a shot of energy.

I remember last year at the end against Edmonton and Calgary when they got destroyed at home- same lackluster effort going on here

It's hard to win a game playing against a team and bad officials who are making imaginary calls while ignoring blatant cross checking from the Stars.

Fletcher, Yeo, somebody needs to get in front of this team and tell them that "This is it." There are no saviors in free agency, or trades, or anything like that. They have enough talent to win, now. Despite all the goaltending issues the Wild have had pretty decent goaltending between the three. Koivu, Parise, Pominville and Suter are top 50 players in the league. The rookies have shown that the ability is there. So, there is no reason for losses like this. It's mental, in their heads and hearts. I'm not sure how bad they really want it. They need to believe they can do it and they will. Get it together boys!

This is a dreadful team. Dallas will catch and pass them. Posser, Stoner and Ballard are worse than pylons. Heatly looks like Herman Munster…cut him loose and give some prospect a chance. Worst skating team in the NHL. You disagree? Name one.

This game was so bad i turned on the timberwolves game. every team has a stinker, but not in front of a national audience!!!!!!! This team is just too soft to really make a stanley cup run. I hate it when the other team beats the crap out of wild players and there is no retaliation. We would be no match for the top 4 teams in the west. This team has to show more grit and Stoner can't be the only guy who will punch. Penalty minutes are great to gain, but we are creating a very soft image to show the rest of the league. I do give kuemper credit for being the only guy who came to play...

We weren't ready - you mean again!? Well who is going to get the team ready to compete? Not the coach I guess, he is afraid to bench Heater or split up Koivu & Parise - tough to follow when you get out shot that bad!
