Also I'd still like to see someone else tried on that first line instead of Heatley, Parise/Koivu are so good together it'd be nice to see if someone else fits there.

Also if the people really want Yeo fired, we're just going to be going through coaches every 2-3 years and you can't do that. He's had less than 2 seasons coaching in the NHL. At the very least let him finish this one and start next one before you start the mobs. Who would you rather have coach the Wild than Yeo right now? Torch, Someone who has also never been a head coach in the NHL?
In terms of talent, this year's team better than last. Last year's team better than the year before. Yet this team plays just like it did under Todd Richards. From the perspective of a STH, recall that 3-4K STH's were sold when ZP & RS were signed. Unlike contracts, those STH's are renewed every year. Liepold/Fletch/Yeo need to win now. Sure, in 2-3 years, the Wild will be deeper, with more overall talent. But the current stars will also be 2-3 years older. Early-to-mid-30s. They all could become slow as molasses like Heatley for all we know. This organization is the NHL equivalent of the Detroit Lions. They need somebody with the intensity/passion of Wes Walz, in some role, behind the bench.
