Still so embarrassing. I've had stronger reactions to a wrinkle in the plastic bag causing my cereal to come out of the box poorly. You're a grown-up, Yeo. Have a goddamn grown-up fit. If they're not working hard enough, tell them the slowest one is going to get ridden for the next drill. Then after you're done stick-lassoing everyone from his back for a few laps, you drop trow and say "Ok, again. And slowest one this time gets ridden reverse bareback." And you know what, you'll see some results this time, because you had a goddamn proper hissyfit that commanded respect.*

I think they went something like 6-1 followed by 0-5 then won their last game against Colorado.

If he does, then who do we get to replace Zucker on the Finn Line?

He changed the defense from a man to man to a zone coverage, and the goals against immediately dropped pretty dramatically. This coincided with both the Blues' goalies becoming above average after combining for last place in the league prior to that.

But the offense has stagnated. The stretch passes are gone. Shattenkirk was traded. Fabbri tore his ACL. There are some promising young middle 6 potential forwards that have joined the team for experience, but this is a team that is trying to win a 2-1 game these days.

The only reason the 6 game losing streak ended is because the Avs are horrific. I think we'll see a hardfought game, but after the Wild take a 2 goal lead the Blues will give up.

Sounds like a familiar game plan.

The Wild love to give up 2 goal leads! Should be a fun game.

Yeo wins the neck tie battle though.

Maybe the trick is to give STL a 2 goal lead early, causing Yeo to order the Turtle, which will lead to us having a two goal lead, but too late for STL to benefit as they will be making Yeobot type decisions and refuse to go beyond the neutral zone...it will actually be like an old Star Trek episode when even venturing into the neutral zone will be risky.

Yeo is a good coach and has potential to be a very good coach. He inherited a messy situation in St. Louis. I almost feel bad for him that he hasn't had normal second half of regular season as NHL head coach.

back to the game at hand.

6-2 Wild.
