Koivu lead finland to gold. He's a legit leader. Yeo on the other hand.... not so much

You know, maybe that DR quote about "Managing Expectations" wasn't so silly after all...

If he makes it until next season. I would be surprised if they keep him around, if we don't start winning soon.

For the record, I sure hope Yeo does turn it around, I still like him as a coach, and only with the best for him and the Wild. But, he has to make something happen soon.

Who cares about just goals. What about wins? I care more about the W's than this team hitting 4 goals a game. People need to stop expecting Chicago like offense with this team. For one, all four lines are filled with new players now. Every D pairing is pushing it still too. There is no chemistry going outside of Koivu-Parise-Heater. It has been 9 games, and how many practices?? Not making excuses, but I'm not expecting a Stanley Cup this year. No one should. Waaaay too many players have to get settled in.

We were two pipes away from a lot of people here talking about how it looks like the team is on the right track.

Well, it certainly isn't something that shouldn't be tried I think. At this point, there needs to be some shakeups to get this team to wake the hell up. Too many lazy clears, passes. Not enough shots at the point from Dmen who should be taking those shots. I swear it's almost like the plan of attack on the PP is "pass it till Parise gets open."

There were plenty of other solid scoring opportunities as well.

Hell more than that. The issue is: some people are expecting 40 SOG and netting 4+ goals a night. It is an expectation that shouldn't even be expected from anyone who knows how hard it is to just pick up and play with new linemates and to also learn a completely different system. Some players can make it look easy, some it takes some time to learn it.

Coyle looked way better in this one game than Granlund has in many. Granlund looked way better in this one game playing on the wing than he has in many at center IMO.

Least Coyle kept shooting. Can't score goals unless you at least make the attempt to net it.

On the bright side, Brodin played a nearly flawless game tonight. Holy christ that kid is good.

Heatley needs to be taken off the top line ASAP because he's got it way too easy there. All he does is stand in front of the net and waits for the puck to come to him. He doesn't do **** defensively and it's always either Koivu or Parise leading the rush into the offensive zone. At least the Heater of last year did more than just stand around.

If you're going to break up the 1st Line, there are several much better options than Seto IMO. PMB or Coyle instead of Heatley for starters. Or even baby jesus.

So your plan for a struggling Seto is to continue to give him sheltered minutes with poor line-mates? Seto has always thrived with a talented center and Granlund isn't it. Seto put up 19 goals with Koivu last season, playing injured, and missing 13 games.

Soooooo dreamy.

Everyone, just drop the negatives from this game. We'll be complaining until after the Vancouver game if this keeps up. Look at the positives! Brodin looks great! Parise is awesome! Mitchell is a beast!

Just...don't be so down on the team. This team has talent. Things will turn around soon

This ain't my first rodeo.

I didn't know what else to do, any legitimate response would just feed what appears to be a troll.
