He only worries about it because if he isnt watching and we run amuck and cause chaos in a thread that is supposed to be closed after 1000 posts, then he gets a v$500 fine. Even mods can't afford that on their salary
Not gonna lie here, I'm starting to jump on the "rip the C off of Koivu's chest" bandwagon. He's not a very vocal presence in the locker room, he sugarcoats a lot of things, and worst of all, he's not showing up when we need him most. I think Parise would be a far better captain.
I know other people have said it, but this is absolutely 100% false. Not only that, but if Mikk didn't have the backing of the locker room, he wouldn't have the C.
I definitely think the only way Yeo goes is if we don't make the post season. I am wishy washy with him. I honestly think his moves helped us win last night. He obviously knew what he was doing. But at times, I believe the opposite takes place and he has no clue. He is hot and cold.
I do think he only goes if we don't make the post season. I think if by next year at this time we suck or don't do well in the playoffs, then he will for sure be gone.
As for Mikko... I love him and love him as captain. I don't want anyone else in this spot. I love him and love Parise and Suter as As.
Yeah I am certainly not right 100% of the time, so I guess I can't expect somebody else, namely our coach to be that way either. But patterns begin to form after you form a body of work. And if collapses every season becomes a pattern, things need to be looked at a bit closer as to why that keeps happening. Teams in a course of an NHL season get hot and cold, that happens to pretty much all teams. But complete collapses, thats a whole other issue. Yeo will be given some more time, but that doesn't mean we can't be entertaining the idea he "might" need to go if this stuff keeps going on.
Considering the quality of callups, probably real.
I'm trying to give benefit of the doubt, but there are only a few players I've seen actually relevant on a broken foot...Konopka doesn't come off as one I've seen be that. Hell even Kesler wasn't playing on his. Rupp has been out a lot and with his family in New York still and we found a relevant fit to the bottom line if we need it with callups. Almost like it was a wash to trade for him.
IDK... just weird all these injuries happened almost all at once
Based on the inconsistency and occasional lapses this team has shown this year, I don't think Yeo's job is or should be totally secure unless the Wild make a fairly strong showing in the playoffs (i.e., win a round, or at least make it competitive and go down in 7).
