Don't just fire him, kick his ass out and call security on him.

Can we also kick Wilson (how is he so bad!?) and Sydor out as well?

BTW I got to wonder if it isn't the atmosphere. Richards is doing a better job in Columbus and he has a less talented squad than what we had here (kind of). I don't know. Something just feels off with our team.

I was thinking that a pro-Wild, playoff oriented avatar theme would be pretty cool. But that's just me.

A bacon theme would be nice.

Even if we do make the playoffs, I still want Yeo gone. We just simply can't melt in a time like this. Our game hasn't been good at all this season.

I agree. That's one of the downsides to making the playoffs this season because it all but assures that Yeo's job is safe.

So who does everyone want for a target if Yeo is dropped?

Ruff is obviously at the top of the free agent list right now, but Laviolette could possibly get fired, maybe Phoenix gets moved and the new management decides to go with a new coach...options are pretty limited, but there are a few.

Both would be near the top of the list for me. I want to see who gets let go after the season as well.

Would you take Tippet if Phoenix lets him go?

God damn right I'd take Tippett if Phoenix let him go. Should've hired him instead of Richards in the first place.

Our PP still sucks. Our puck possession still sucks. We play on the perimeter all game. Zero quality scoring chances are coming from our dump and cycle approach. This is *********. Kick this guy to the curb already when the seasons done.

Tippett would be a no brainer but I seriously doubt he'll be available. Gotta be either Ruff or Laviolette. Personally, I'd take Laviolette but I'd be good with Ruff, too. If we miss the playoffs this year, I expect a full shakeup of players and coaches. As a fan, I'm perilously close to tuning this team out... so damned frustrating.

Current wild problems are monstrous

Wild D is so bad that opposite forwards skate true wild D constantly and shoot from prime goal scoring areas

Were's Wild cant shoot from the slot because the attack has no penetration

Yeo is a coach that simply cant fix issues in an reasonable amount off time,he's still mentally and skill vise a rookie and soft coach

NHL is no place to learn your trade it's a place were coaches has to be ready in every aspect it's clear yeo is not ready and wild is paying high price for it

Either wild miss the playoffs or get battered badly in the 1 round

Fletch needs to start relying on sure coaches and stop taking making decisions based on who is a nice guy and who's not

The guy comes up with a game plan, and even that game plan is not sound, but if things do not go according to this so called plan, he has no capability to change things up. He doesn't know what he's doing. He needs canned. I don't care if we win the last three games, get into the playoffs and even win a round. I still want him gone. We will never win the Cup with him in charge.
This is what I've been worried about the entire season. Good coaches adapt when their plan isn't working and try something else instead. I have yet to see Yeo do this. He's shuffled the lines, but the game plan's still the same.

I would jump all over Dave Tippett if he, for some reason, becomes available. Failing that, I think Ruff would be the next choice. I'm not so keen on Laviolette. His system seems to be really short on the defensive end. All one needs to do is look at Bryz. He played great in Phoenix because the system there was great for defense. He gets run over in Philly because the system there is not good for defense.

Yeah, right. We're the Wild.

The problem with Yeo's system is that we spend the entire game chasing the god damn puck and grinding. Sure, it's nice to have a two-way game and all, but only time they choose to keep the puck is when they enter a scoring area.

It was painfully obvious yesterday: They got way too easily into our zone. Every single time. Calgary didn't have to dump and chase, because we just let them cruise in. Granted, they only did that 4 or 5 times a period, and we DID control the game and deserved to win... but still, it's inexcusable. Not to mention that we're usually too damn exhausted and give two or three easy goals in the 3rd, because the guys are frustrated and spent after spending the entire hockey game chasing the puck only to get their ass kicked by a bunch of ****ing AHL scrubs.

Short of a 2nd round game 7 loss in the playoffs after a hard fought series Yeo should be gone regardless if we make the playoffs or not. This **** is unacceptable,

Do you need to beg your coach for his team to not come out with some limp dick performance?

I have never seen a more boring and ineffective 5on5 system, it's just so bad. We have quality players and we are not getting anything out of them, they look just like regular grinders out there.

I was NEVER on board with letting Richards go but have to say Yeo is pretty bad.

Now look what Richards is doing with a lame organization like the BJs.

Hate to say I was right...
