When will this team take the play by play position seriously... LaPanta is better than Terhaar,,, but I don't expect by much!

BOO HISS!

from my experience with LaPanta, he can at least get the basics straight which in it self is a big upgrade.

i got an idea, how about we hold a reality tv show to find the next play by play guy

IMO, they won't gain any respect until they truly go in a different direction by clearing out Greenlay. Start fresh. Otherwise, they're just trying to put lipstick on a pig.

Okay Russo is also reporting this. Here's what guts everyone though:

There has been a lot of national interest in the position, but LaPanta has been the frontrunner since Day One.
You want to be a luxury car Wild? That's not the way.

I really really want to know who has shown this "national interest".

If the Wild go with LaPanta and I find out they had someone GOOD interested in the spot...I am gonna be PISSED.

Holy crap, there are a total of 0 positive tweets about LaPanta right now. That's scary.

I have a feeling a few weeks into next year some of us might be saying "un-fire Terhaar"

To me it just feels like this offseason got off to a bang....and we just found out that the gun that went off when we fired Terhaar was actually aimed at our collective foot.

Great job, Wild.

Whoever had LaPanta at the top of the potential play by play candidates list needs to be fired, out of a cannon, and into The Sun.

Basically the Wild are saying to the better national contenders, "we don't want you".

Damn...

I don't want to start any speculation but would Gord Miller make sense since he and Greenlay already did some games together? Again, I don't want to start any speculation..

Yep, I've watched several gopher games and I've never liked his play calling.

This is some sick joke right? I'll be sure to voice my displeasure to the appropriate Wild department. I highly advise you to do the same.

We need to do some kind of email and twitter campaign. Hopefully the contract is not signed yet and there is still time to head off this decision.

Have to flood the Wild with complaints.

Does anybody have any video(s) to post so I can judge how bad he is?

I've emailed the squad in hopes of obtaining an appropriate email address or phone number for us to contact if we so wish. I'll be sure to post it when I receive it.

Yep, his voice reminds me of someone else of notoriety involved with NHL play calling.

And I do not like it one damned bit.

That would never happen. Doc Emrick hates the West and he already quit doing play by play for the devils because he wanted to scale back his workload.

Much more likely would be Gary Thorne.

I would weep tears of sheer joy if we somehow landed Gary Thorne for Wild play by play duties.

LaPanta's hair is great, I don't know why you're all worried, we can just look at it all day.

And, LaPanta better not get so damn excited every time a goal happens. I swear he thinks he's doing play by play for soccer or something. If national interest was there, that kind of sucks, but that play by play guy already contracted could be someone worse.

Ugh...

Flat out don't like LaPanta. The guy's voice annoys me, and he has no emotional range, no inflection to his voice, he just gets loud when things are exciting.

Say what you will about Terhaar, but the guy was at least passionate about the game.

I would love to be able to voice my displeasure at this apparently already decided decision...

its so great how 5 pages ago everyone was convinced we couldn't do worse and now everyone is pissed again.

what i want to know is this significant national attention, if there is that why are we not pursuing that?

my guess is russo is just pumping LaPanta's tires
