They all skated. Practiced, listened. The playes that were brought in can play in any system. Suter and Parise could play any where and be fine. Brodin looks far beyond his years.

How much time do we give?

Everyone is on the same playing field. The wild are at no greater disadvatage than anyone. Its an excuse. The Wild were not grounded in a snow storm and missed more days than any other team.

How is keeping a losing coach that cannot generate offense going to help the future? We do not have the luxury of waiting out a rookie coach with a rookie team. Just say we are rebuilding and he can have all the time in the world.
