If I was Boudreau, I'd hand in my resignation at the Dallas post game conference.
And then I'd burn it to the ground...
As far as the next coach, who in their right mind would want to take over this dumpster fire knowing that neither the GM nor the owner have your back?
I don't think the Wild had any intention of not making the Playoffs. The signings they made (Fehr, Brown, Hendricks, etc.) were simply guys to fill out the fourth line. Nothing special. Even Pateryn was brought in to fill out the third defensive pairing. These guys were brought in as complementary pieces, something to shore up perceived weaknesses, not something that will push the team to the next level. But the fourth line and the third defensive pairing were not the Wild's problem.
Even though it is two games early, the Wild are officially done with any playoff chases, so figured, wouldn't hurt to get the ball rolling on some sort off season general thread where news, notes, fears, horrors, or miracles can be talked about....and hopefully this thread develops nicely IF Wild management makes some good decisions over the Spring and Summer.
What ails the team will NOT be fixed in a single off season, but still, a good summer can ensure that perhaps some fans will be able t
What does that even mean? If this is not a rebuild what is? We've already dumped the age group at the middle. We can't get rid of some and surely we aren't keeping the Browns and the Rasks in the long run.
Fenton has a different definition of “rebuild” than most people do. The same way he has a different definition of “game breaker” than most people do...
Would not surprise me if Brown is buried in Iowa next year or even bought out. Rask is going nowhere for at least a year, because if Fenton buys him out or trades him it means he made a mistake, and he’s not going to admit to that.
