Nice 7-1 win. Perhaps this will be the year the Wild don't have a January collapse.

Yeo is gone so I think this is the year.

10 nationally televised games the rest of the year... I never thought I'd see the day.

Man this Wild team is so impressive. They have zero quit in them. First place in the Western Conference, but a lot of hockey to go and plenty of time to disappoint so I'm not getting ahead of myself.

If they can get over the Chicago Hump during the playoffs, then sky's the limit!

Another win! At 69 points we're only 3 points behind the Caps for the best record in hockey going into the All Star break. We're 4 points clear of Chicago and have played less games than them. We also have 8 players with at least 10 goals which is the most in the NHL.

Boudreau has really turned the Wild around. This Wild team is so different than really any other Wild team in history. We have a plethora of scoring options, we're fast, and can move the puck around. Yeo seemed like a good man but his style of hockey and leadership just doesn't cut it. You have to be able to score more than 1 or 2 goals a game to get it done in the playoffs. The Wild also have a good youth system right now and they appear set to have a long run. What a difference from other Minnesota sports teams (and I say that as a native Minnesotan).

My only concern is Boudreau has done this consistently throughout anywhere in his coaching career - every team he has ever coached in the NHL I believe has finished no worse in the regular season than top 5. He did it with Washington and Anaheim:

Looks like the Wild might win him another division title...then remains to be seen how we fair in the post season.

the Wild have only one player (Granlund-20th) in the top 35 in points and their top goal scorer (Staal) is tied for 44th.


...and yet, they are tied for 3rd in the league in goals.


I remember many years ago that the North Stars once headed into the playoffs with seven players that had at least 20 goals and that was a pretty big deal. Currently the Wild have 8 players with at least 10 goals and that doesn't include Parise with his 8 goals.
