Look, I haven't seen anything out of Yeo as a coach that makes me feel he's doing the Wild any favors. He has improved the team's defense, which is good. But the offense is still stagnant and the power play is much worse under his tenure. I keep hearing about players needing to buy in to his forecheck but it doesn't make a bit of sense to me.
Wild have an extremely tough schedule coming up. We'll see where they are on the other side of it.
I'm just not sure that a lot of the problems are Yeo's fault. A coach can only do so much. They are not out there on the ice. It's up to the players to get results. In the end hockey is hockey. No matter what systems or what not. Good players succeed. I guess I'm just not a guy that puts a lot of the blame on the coach. They are a factor, but I really think win or lose it's on the players.
