Really? I thought it was the worst game of the season by a good margin. They did nearly nothing for two periods.

Fire Yeo. Trade em all. Panic mode engaged. They can't turn this around.

Somebody needs to clear the crease, no excuse for a scoring chance in that tight. Suter should have pummeled him.

Suter is horrible ... 5 games in and he is already -6 I've seen nothing by him YET this year. He better get his ***** together or he will quickly be labled as biggest bust FA signing since Gomez.
Really? It's Suter's fault that backs was out way to far when the play was so close?

It's ridiculous how many goals Suter has been on the ice for.
That's what happens when you're the #1 guy logging lots of minutes though. And I say that as fan who sees that he's struggling. As for Backstrom, you nailed it. Open net goals galore, because he hits the ground and takes his precious time getting back up. He'd rather try to make a save by planking.

False. 2 top ten picks.

Suter looks like he's playing with absolutely zero confidence. I haven't seen him not playing tentative since game one or two.

Suter for Luongo and a 3rd. Start him every home game and lose. Draft Seth Jones First overall in the draft. Win infinity cups.

It's that simple guys.

Tough to win when you have just one line able to create offense.

Backs especially looked like **** tonight. WTF.

I felt like half our guys were still on a damned holiday for 3/4 of the game....

Absolutely love that when the Wild play national games, they give the commentators EVERY REASON to just GUSH about how great the other team is.

What I meant was, we got one of each (top-10 pick and superstar UFA) at EACH position.

I hope Yeo rips into the guys a little. They need to wake the **** up, put a little more effort in, and quit stopping on plays after the puck has gone by.

I liked Parise, Brodin and Stoner.

Suter is a great d man. Unfortunately, he seems to be a little too passive at times and seems to quit on plays too frequently. He needs to stop this, like now.

Just about everyone pissed me off to varying degrees.
What game were you watching? Stoner and Falk were both abysmal!

Cullen was horrible. I mean really really bad. Falling more than usual.

Stoner/Falk really bad. Stoner couldn't even skate by the end of the game.

Backstrom was not good, although he was left out to dry three times.

Suter good in neutral zone, O zone. Bad in own end.

1st line, excellent.

Well at least the rest of our division has sucked. We're tied for first place!

That's not the point. Am I giving up on the season? No. But there is something DRASTICALLY wrong about the fact that we are only getting goals from ONE line. This was game 5. With the exception of Granlund, it's only been Heatley, Parise, and now Koivu for the forwards. That's it. It's crazy. Insane kind of crazy.

Wouldn't go that far. This isn't basketball so the two grand prize UFAs aren't turning everything around overnight. Still, the D looks like last year and everyone not on the top line is still in Lockout mode.

Sorry, but we seriously don't look any better than we have for the last four years. It's the same incredibly sloppy mistakes, lack of discipline, and general complacency and unmotivated play that we're just accustomed to by now.

If it were just one or even three losses, whatever. But it's the continuation of an incredibly long-running pattern and our cure-all hasn't really seemed to do anything.

I liked that Stoner at least wasn't quiting and was clearing the crease for the most part. Falk, I agree with you.

My main frustration with this game is how freakin lazy most of our guys looked, and to me Stoner was at least trying.

Take your optimism and go home!











Like I said earlier, really hoping this is just the same kind of slow start like we saw last year. Remember how bad we were before we started to actually gel?

You're slaying me MK9, but you are right, this board is quite hilarious. The way (most) overact around here like the sky is falling you can't help but be amused by it. So laughable.


BUT, this team needs to change these lines up for sure as the top line has scored 10 or our 13 goals. That's unnacceptable.

But you know what...Keith Jones was right just now when he said this team is "top heavy" and that we lack depth - the Blues were clearly the better team.

I say move Granlund to top line and move Koivu to center with PMB and Seto. Although as you can see even PMB and Seto are a bit of a drop off.

We need a healthy Latandresse and probably should have picked a guy like Arnott and this team would look much more legit. Oh, and if only we could take the Nick Leddy trade back...
