His Dad, former North Star JP, is doing the Let's Play Hockey announcement tomorrow. You can take Zach's rerurn to the bank in my opinion. Good news!

Meant "return"!

Wow ! Had to check if the Hawks played last night or not ? drum roll please...... YES. hehehehehe. The scheduling doctor....... Why would Parise or Suter go to Russia ? why risk the danger of it when they are established in their careers, I can see an amateur athlete risking something but not players their age. Your going to listen to the Russian government and get the warm fuzzies ? What would the Wild do without their minute muncher Suter ? What would Kwiktrip do without Suter ?. If the Wild lost Suter and Parise, they most certainly would be required to work hard for their wins and be creative, lets face it, working hard for wins does not seem in the cards very often for this team, even with scheduling Dallas playing the night before they got out worked and outplayed both in at Dallas AND the XCEL....... When Leo and Fletch hired YEO, I said "what the heck" When you look at the up and down efforts and general lack of motivation from the team going on for quite some time now you have to wonder HOW does LEO and Fletch justify their tolerance in the spirit of being responsible stewards for the state of Minnesota and its hockey fans ????? Tolerance suggests their is some sort of justification, I have read and listened to interviews and I have not heard what that justification might be

If there's yet ANOTHER lackluster performance by our beloved Wild, I say it's time to move past the failed Mikey Yeo era. These guys would never dare to loaf this way under JL. I don't want him back, but would love to see what Laviolette could do behind out bench. Yeo is clueless.

I am sure JPP goes to quite a few games on his own dollar, so this is not directed at him. But the "Let's Play Hockey" thing by so-called "celebrities" is really getting old. Particularly when I'm guessing in some instances it may be the only Wild game they have ever attended, or that particular year. Personally I would like to see them reward loyal paying customers with the tradition. BTW, I am one, but have zero interest in doing it. At the same time I am sure there are many who would like it.

Dang, I really wanted to see him play with Granlund.

Won't matter who is healthy for the Mild. This team is about to get throttled by Chicago. I firmly believe the Mild are going to lose 7-10 in a row. REMEMBER THIS MILD FANS. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.

The good news will finally occur when Heatley is gone.

How can anyone still support Yeo & co.?

skeptikJan. 23, 14 9:19 AM

Glad to get him back so hopefully he can hustle the team back into a few wins. Should be interesting to see how Parise does with someone other than Koivu as the center. I am sure even the "slammers" will be interested in this. Go Wild!
