I told everyone the Wild would lose two straight and they did. On this long road trip ? Are you joking FSN ? THEY PLAYED 4 GAMES ONLY with games every other day while going to the beach. The Wilds legs are tired ? Wes, really ? Below I take a close look at this January that was just so unbelievable....... Take a look at the amount of games the Wild played against teams that played the night before AND the wins against teams that are just plain horrible like the Oilers AND Buffalo whom they played at home...... FINAL BUF (1) - MIN (4) Worst team in Hockey: FINAL WSH (3) - MIN (5) Washington came into Minnesota on a major slump: FINAL MIN (2) - LAK (1) They won in a shootout on the road - decent win: FINAL MIN (4) - PHX (1) - PHX (1) Nice Win:FINAL COL (4) - MIN (2) Colorado played the night before and still beat the Wild on home Ice: FINAL MIN (4) - NSH (0) Believe it or not Nashville played the night before just like Colorado. Good win I guess: FINAL OTT (3) - MIN (0) Ottawa played the night before believe it or not. Ottawa came in playing good and easily beat the Wild: FINAL EDM (1) - MIN (4) The Oilers are so Horrible. If you want to call this a good win you can: FINAL DAL (2) - MIN (3) Good win against a horrible team: FINAL MIN (0) - DAL (4) Believe it or not the Stars played the night before and destroyed this team: FINAL CHI (1) - MIN (2) Believe it or not the Black Hawks played the night before in a huge huge nationally televised game against Detroit with a ton of hype: FINAL MIN (2) - SJS (3) Sharks won even though they have been playing just horrible hockey: FINAL MIN (4) - ANA (2) This is laughable, the worst circumstances a team can play a game. Big outdoor game at Dodger stadium. If you want to call this a real win go ahead: FINAL MIN (4) - COL (5) The Wild lose as you would expect

The Mild! Haha. I've never heard anything so clever!! I'm not being at all sarcastic!!!!!

Kuempher is continually out of position and recently has been giving up at least 1-2 bad goals a game which are directly his fault. If you think this team stands a chance with the goaltending the way it stands well I've got some Ocean front property in Phoenix to sell you.. Poor effort all the way around once again. Calgary is a must win if you want to make the playoff's.. Atta boy Fletch! Your boy's are such a disappointment..

I didn't get a chance to watch the game, 3-4 lose to Calgary is disappointing, we need the two points whenever we can get them...but that first comment is just laughable. Apparently, the Wild have the easiest schedule and only play teams either after they play night before, play the night after, after a 'hue' game, before a 'huge' game or we catch teams when they are playing terrible... Get a life buddy!

Obviously not a good road trip. Only 4 pts out of 8. I said last week that this trip would define the season and it has. They are just simply an average team with a few bright spots here and there. I don't see them getting any better in March. They're going to get leap frogged and end up in ninth or tenth place - NO playoffs. Even if they made it in it wouldn't matter, this team is still not good enough to advance out of the first round.

Disappointment is all this team is good for. It's really hard to care much anymore for this Mild group. Yeo-Yeo is clueless behind the bench and so too is Fletcher who excels at bringing soft, little guys to the roster. No end in sight when it comes to bad pro hockey in Minnesota. Looks like another ownership change is needed. Nashville never accomplished a thing when he owned the Preds. Leipold has yet to make a good hire in the front office. What's needed now is a couple of good fire's.

Yeo is killing this team. Outshot yet again and Rupp had a whopping 4 minutes. What a waste of a roster spot. BRING BACK KONOPKA is you insist on playing a so called tough guy.

skeptikFeb. 2, 14 8:49 AM

Poor effort last night by the Wild team. Trying to understand how several Wild players can be so inconsistent. Rupp. Another bad penalty? Wasn't it Stoner tripping up Darcy? Stay out of the crease! Regardless, So many passes that were not received. Too many players not skating. Happy for Cooke to have a solid game and a goal as well but why is Cooke, for two periods, the only Wild player to have brought a game to the arena? The Wild team still has some housecleaning to do.

The way all of you have been talking, Zucker was going to be the savior. What happened?

dirtydogsFeb. 2, 14 9:35 AM

Take shots at Zucker all you want. CLUELESS. He showed hustle and I can see why they would play him in place of Mitchell. No one said he was a savior, but he is better than many on the roster. And as for Brodziak, I can only wonder why Yeo keeps playing this guy. When Koivu comes back, I sure hope Haula stays with the team and Brodziak sits. If not, I may have to start a FIRE YEO chant the next Wild home game.
