And for good reason. There are two ways to be successful. Long-term and short term (Detroit/Chicago(Tampa Bay). The Wild didn't win a playoff series. And they weren't built for long term success. So far, my prediction with Riser has come true and I was one of the only ones to openly criticize Riser early on.

The thing is, you can see the difference between Riser and Fletcher. I was critical of Fletcher early on especially with the Leddy and Kobasew trades but his draft picks have shown a lot more success than Riser's.
