    Here's your post-game. While he didn't play, Mayhew will wear #26. Now that is an ugly list of players for this team who have worn that number. 2-0 shutout by Stalock earns Wild first win of season against Senators

    However, that goal came as the result of the hard work by Greenway fighting for possession.

    We used to state the 'boycott' point all of the time to the disenchanted fans. And I think its 100% correct and the one thing that will make this club take notice. As long as its 'We the sheeple' they'll continue to let everything continue as painful as it appears to be. I agree with @IllaZilla as this is the chickens coming home to roost. As another friend of mine said on Twitter yesterday in the wake of their loss to Pittsburgh. This is just the beginning of the schitt show. Its only going to get worse. I even think Bill Guerin knows and realizes this. He may have hoped the team would suddenly pick itself up and find a different level once the regular season started after a mostly ugly pre-season...but he's come to realized this is a horrendous team with terrible locked in cement contracts. I don't think it matters one bit if they replace Boudreau. It might what...spark a few players to try harder for a few games and then it'd be back to being crap. If you need someone to hate Wild fans...hate Paul Fenton. His moves were not just bad, they were devastating both short term and long term. He had to be very careful with the limited assets the team could move and instead he frittered them away for garbage in return and then panicked and signed and cemented some old guys to the team's growing collection of fossils.

    We should start an “excuse” bingo thread. Might be more entertaining than the team...

    Last year I was asked to not run a MN Wild Prediction thread and instead the Pick'em format was rolled out. So this year I didn't make a MN Wild Prediction thread either. However, what's your prediction for the year? I'm thinking 32 wins and 52 loses. Can they get 32 wins? I'm being optimistic.

    Yes. She worked the tourney in Chaska this summer. She’s head of the volunteers which were 1500 strong. She will be in Philly until August then probably Maryland after if it’s what she wants to continue to do

    Being I’m an Eagles fan because of a nephew on the team they can make any QB look like Joe Montana. I’ve never seen a worse defensive backfield. By the way I grew up a Vikes fan and still am unless of course they are playing the Eagles. Heading to Philly Wednesday to help my daughter move there for her new LPGA job. Going to a Flyers/Stars game Saturday night

    Well just like Columbus, Americans are bad with geography (and history) as well.

    Exactly. lol From what I see, that tends to be what happens. There's more "room" on the ice, but it's room on the "outskirts" so to speak. You're basically skating around where the spectators are normally sitting, so it puts you farther and farther away from the net. While you could blow past a defender on the outside, you have a long way to cut inside to get to the net, and the defenders are just going to choke off access to the front of the net and ignore the area along the side boards.

    Seriously? We have pretty big time players who haven't shown up yet. One who played a total of 3 minutes in the 3rd period and it was 2:59 too much. It's very early and of course you continue to work on finding what's optimal. Or at least figure out how to resuscitate $15M of your cap space. And we're all enjoying that they're undefeated (in regulation) and all that, but two of the teams are a combined 0-5-3. I'm not knocking it. Beat who you're scheduled. But it's not as if we're operating on all cylinders and beating world class teams. Of course at this point you continue to tweak. It's flatly a no brainer. I'm not sure when stating the sensible and obvious made one a Philly fan, but I guess I'll take it.

    Are you doing the Hulu-Firestick combo? I haven't pursued that yet since we have a terribly old routing in our area and heard of many having buffering issues. I've obviously not missed much. Caught some of the games on Bilasport but that's a horrible picture and I want to only watch Hockey on my big screen, Not a PC monitor. Then our internet was down all day yesterday anyhow. Thanks Centurylink.

    OK. Let's start by eliminating shootouts. Bring back the tie. Oh, you don't mean those changes?

    At least this time the Wild will be in with a shout. This is a poorly constructed, disastrous team. I'd be amazed if they don't end up in the league bottom4 come April. Someone already suggested this might be the worst Wild team ever. Not the worst roster, IMO definitely not, but the team has zero cohesion and is out-of-date really, with too many passengers just going through the motions.

    Bench to send a message. Then put him out first to show you have faith in him. If it doesnt work out, no ine can say you didnt try

    Agreed. And yes on the "noticed him at least." Unspectacular, but some sound play. I'll take that in the role he's playing.

    @OccamsRazor I think my favorite thing about last night's game was that clearly Voracek's ice time was greatly cut. He's too good to be on the 4th line (and paid way too much), but I'm happy V is willing to send messages to anyone and not give a crap who you are. Voracek is clearly mailing it in. Mail him out if he's not going to play ball.

    Excuse checklist 1. It's only (x) games let's not panic. Check 2. We need dirty goals. Check 3. We're just squeezing our sticks to tight. 4. We need to learn to play hard for all three periods, 60 minutes. 5. We're beating ourselves. 6. Trying to find chemistry on our forward lines. 7. We need to be hard to play against. (Time to goon it up) 8. Proverbial players only meeting (where we take look at ourselves in a mirror). 9. Coach has lost the room. 10. Our division toughest in the league.

    I try to think that will happen, but we'll probably 'lose' the lottery too.

    Still don't understand how a forward gets benched in the 3rd and is your first shooter...wish they would try JVR oreven Lindblom over Jake who just never is impressive in shootouts he never has any creativity with the puck on his stick...like this... This isn't nothing crazy but it helps to take it seriously to try and win....

    Why did he put Jake as his first shooter? He took him off the top line and made him sit a few shifts. Jake isn't playing well yet. Why put him as #1? Bad choice.

    It’s like @yave1964said, you can’t fire 23 players, so someone needs to go. That would be Boudreau, the only 30+something without a NTC. If Donato turns in another poor performance, I can see them sending him to Iowa. He’s got a couple of games left before he needs waivers. That might shake up some of the younger guys, but nothing is going to shake up the older guys. I doubt even if Boudreau benched one of them it would have any effect. They got their money and they know they aren’t going anywhere. And you are correct, the only thing that fans can really do to show their displeasure is to stop buying stuff. Bitching on this board or the team Twitter account is meaningless if they continue to purchase season tickets and jerseys.

    If they continue to lose, he may not last October. But they have a ready made replacement in Zach Parise, because he seems to know everything...kind of a player/coach, like Reggie Dunlop...

    Saw that. I guess the way I look at it is that this team was at best going to be a playoff bubble team if everything goes right. If they get hit with injuries or get into a prolonged slump, they may miss the Playoffs. This is team has always been streaky. They’ll lose four or five in a row and then all of a sudden rip off six wins in a row. But it I do think the chickens are coming home to roost. The team built around Koivu, Parise and Suter and then failed to draft and develop any young scorers, preferring to draft “safe” players.

    I won't indict Hextall to hell, he was not perfect, he did sign some bad NHL players while he was rebuilding the farm system and prospect pool. I don't think the half-assed rebuild was fun. I do, however, like seeing guys like Carsen Twarinski look like legit NHL players. 81 was on zero people's radar as a "youngster primed to make the NHL roster". And here he is blowing up Norris trophy candidate PK Subban in the home opener and handcuffing the Devils goalie with his ++ shot. That's Hextall too, so yes, he did step on his crank with his micromanaging , failing to fire his dumb-assed coach and icing a middling team. He also drafted extremely well and set the stage for what we're seeing happening now- He didn't get to execute this phase but without his work this phase doesn't feel like the beginning of something.

    I voted for "Leave it as is" only because most of the arenas cannot be retrofitted to the extra width of the rink.
