Yeo said he didn't have full practice today after talking to guys & watching 3rd period: "feels like we're in a beer league-shown up & play"

Not sure if that's an indictment on Yeo or the players...or maybe both?

After Yeo just said the PP stinks because of lack of practice it is an indictment on Yeo

Yeah...

This is not a good way to make any kind of point...

Reminds me of some of the crap Richards did.

Babcock certainly wouldn't have done this... Those fools would have been out there sweating like pigs if they pulled this crap under him.

Wasn't Church of Yeo the first Yeo meme?

I think the effort of this team has been phenomenal lately. That includes last nights game. If we want them to sustain that kind of play they are going to need rest as well. They are only human.

They did work their butts off, and lost the game, a game they should have had but for a serious failing on something that has been plagueing them all season.

Don't make excuses for them. How many people here work 8-12 hour days? Sometimes it's non stop. This is there job, and they need to fix a failing of theirs. If we had a failing or a weakness we would be expected to fix it or we'ld be fired. And they're the ones getting paid millions of dollars.

I've worked 75 hours straight, both physically and mentally. A few times. This is no joke. And I wasn't the only one.

Don't make excuses for them. They can do this. Other teams do this, and so can we, but they need to get there.

If they can't handle what it takes to make millions a year, they shouldn't be playing.

I have no doubt that you work hard. I do doubt that your job is a good comparison to a professional athlete. These guys are pushing their bodies about as hard as they can go on a nightly basis. If they weren't they'd be getting replaced by guys that do. Getting paid millions of dollars doesn't turn one into a super human.

If they were being lazy then I'd agree that they need a punishment practice but as far as I can see they aren't. The powerplay sucks but it did last year too and they had plenty of practices.

Oh the drama here...


It was just one game, they didn´t lose any more points than in other losses. Just move on.

Yeah the lack of scoring sucks but they played two good periods and just didn´t manage to get the goals they needed. They also played against a top team in the nhl and played well. which is the most important thing.

In regards to myself, a fair amount of it was pretty damned physical. I'm not going into details, but it was in the Navy and a combination of so many things, guys were falling asleep standing up. It's possible for people to do amazing things, they just need to find the motivation.

Our team has shown that motivation, they also have shown when they lose that motivation, and that's what happened last night. That's also what pisses me off the most about games like last night. instead of rallying, they just go flat. We all know they could have won that game, it's too bad they didn't go that extra mile to earn it. Again, they worked their butts off for 40 minutes only to fail in the final 20, and they're generally a good third period team.

I'm sorry, but if making $1 mill+ doesn't motivate you to work your ass off, playing a game youre supposed to love, then you shouldn't be playing. These guys are not entitled that that much money, they need to earn it, and if you're trying to earn in a year, what many people don't make in their whole lives, I damned well expect you to push yourself harder than most people can, and continue to do so.

It might not be fair but I can only relate to myself with things like this, what I have experienced and the people I have known who experienced it as well. I know people are capable of more. I got paid 1,200 dollars to work my tail off in a month, and I'm talking 4 or 5 hours straight of physical exertion that some people would pass out during. We didn't get no 30 second shifts either.

More proof they can do better: Watch every team that makes the post season and the intensity and exertion ramps up. It's all about motivation. They have the ability.

They lost their motivation in a game that they were owning. They had a great rookie teammate get detroyed in an illegal play, and instead of getting fired up, and seeking retribution in a good win, they fell flat and lost all motivation. These guys talk about winning, then they need to earn it. They talk about no time to practice a pp, yet they get days off with us in 8th now, and the season only getting shorter.

Every team is fighting their own battles in this weird season. It's the strong teams that are going to make it. We have the potential to be one of those teams.

Beating an injured, down-on-their-luck Canucks doesn't prove much. This game was a measuring stick, and we should have had it. That's why I'm pissed about this.

"I see a Stanley Cup championship. My hope is that it happens soon," Leipold told the St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, March 13. "It may not be this year. It may not be next year. But the beautiful thing is we have a window now that's not going to close in two or three years. We've got a window that's going to be opened up for five, six or seven years."

— The Wild's merchandise sales rank among the top five NHL teams.



— The club has sold more than 2,500 Zach Parise jerseys since he signed with the club on July 4. The previous high for an individual player during an entire season was approximately 530 for Cal Clutterbuck in 2010-11.

— Online traffic at wild.com is up 200 percent and generated more hits than any other team on the day the lockout ended.
