It's too early to say that...there are still 8 games to go. They can get back on a hot streak heading into the post season, and it can start tonight.

But our #1 centerman needs to pick it up and start producing.

Defenseman cheating too much and making awful changes leading to breakaways.

Lines need more shuffling.

What's wrong is they got too cocky and put the cart before the horse. Nothing was a guarantee, yet they thought they were a shoe in for the postseason. Wrong. There is no such thing as an easy game for them. With their attitudes and lack of consistency, they couldn't even beat the Gophers.

Why'd the "fire Mike Yeo" thread get closed? Let's get that baby kicking again. Along those same lines, don't let Fletcher within a country mile of the personnel that pick our next coach.

Who is the coach of Columbus? Should be in line for coach of the year, they have a great chance to make the playoffs!

Pretty pathetic when you wish Todd Richards was the Wild coach, not Yeo!

Why? Richards had less talent in both situations and is getting more out of his players.

I still don't wish he was the coach. Don't regret him leaving one bit.

IMO the #1 problem is a weak D corps. After Suter-Brodin not a lot there. Followed by a lack of scoring, both by the 1st Line and secondary scoring. And a predictable PP - just stay in the box and the Wild will pass around the perimeter until they throw it away or the PP ends.

If you have to ask why you're not very observant or perceptive.

Actually, the current CBJ team isn't all that bad on paper.

Oh, and the refereeing has been abysmal. Maybe THAT is the reason why Gilbert's back in the line-up...

Makes me wonder what Brodz has been doing to stay in the lineup.

Let's see Richards as wild coach with a lot less talent had a record of 77-71 and Yeo has a record of 57-52. Again,why?

Our first line center and Captain has yet to tally a single point in the month of April so far.

Mike Yeo is not a bad coach, though not a great one either. But his favoritism is really wearing thin on me. Last night MG and Zucker got benched because of their (or Granny's, rather) lapse of defensive coverage in Blue Jackets' tying goal. No matter the multiple scoring chances they had created together before that. Now when Brodziak makes a mistake in the next Columbus goal, he gets benched too, right? Wrong. Brodziak is a gritty defensive player so he can do no sin. Same for Stoner who is big and physical and thus on the good book of Yeo, no matter how many brainfarts with the puck he commits per game.

It has become obvious Yeo loves his grinders even when they are complete black holes offensively and ruin multiple scoring opportunities per night. His ideal hockey is 0-0 grindfest, all the creative offensive players damned. Especially if they are rookies. Honestly his act is getting really old.

How is the superstar forward that was signed in the off-season, doing this month in goals? Hmmm.

Which upsets me b/c Pomer's late linechange is the reason they got a breakaway that had half my section pucker up (again). The Seto-Granlund-Zucker line was the most fun to watch.

And pretty sure double shifting an injured Suter shows just how badly this teams need another Dman. He was out there non stop it seemed like with Brodin and Spurgeon.

Look no further than the Kaptain himself..last 8 games he has ZERO points..after having 13 in the 9 games before that when we were winning.

Im sorry but when your first line center hasn't had a point in 8 games your probably not going to win too many hockey games.

I think what most of you call "favortism" i call a shortend season with no room for error. You play the most experienced line up every chance u get cause in reality, this season does not permit young talented centers like granlund time to adjust from Euro hockey.

now if Yeo was pullin this **** in an 82 game season, i'd be right on board with most of you, vets being -15 and scoreless for long stretches, need to be benched when you have games to afford to do so.

I agree. Especially when your second line center goes down. First line center has to produce all the more.

Precisely. I'm not worried about him at all. Wild fans know all about him. He is going to turn it around and will be largely responsible for why we get into the post season.
