If the cheerleaders think St. Louis’s success was a “get in and see what happens “ moment , they’re nuts.
St. Louis was built for platoff hockey. Their smallest regular player weighs in at 190 lbs.
players not timid about taking the body. A coach who got them to by in on solid defense. Balanced scoring.
All that requires patience and a plan.
Something the wild lack.
It better be a pretty GD good prospect for the Wild to take on Backes. And it flies in the face of the “ We have to get younger and faster...” mantra that Fenton keeps using to justify the trades of Coyle, Niederreiter, and Granlund.

It is time this team took an objective look at itself. The hints have been piling up for sometime, its time they take heed from what these 'messages' are telling them.
Ok my bad. But of the 3 skaters under 190 , how many pulled regular minutes.
My main point was St. Louis was built for playoff hockey.
It seems St. Louis always picks size for the tie breaker between 2players.
When Berube succeeded Yeo he demanded accountability. It's the same thing Boudreau promised when he became the Wild's head coach. The other promise was kept, the other was not, and the results are clear.
