IMO, the Wild started re-building the minute Riser was fired. Fletcher had to come in and evaluate what we had and how to best move forward. In order to that, he had to see the team on the ice to see where the current deficiencies were.

So, Richards was given a team that was just starting the process of re-building, and Yeo came in about mid-way through that process.

I would say the re-build is now complete. Anything less than making the playoffs should be considered a fire-able offense for someone (most likely Yeo).
