New Wild Coach!

Recommended Posts

Bear55

JL is one of the premier coaches in the NHL

Look what he accomplishes EVERY season with a team consisting of lots of young blood..

We dont need a new coach. We need an owner who can cough up the money to keep our Key players on the roster

I agree about the coach and we are already spending close the cap. If anything needs to change its the GM. He doesn't have any glaring mistakes but when you add up some of the trades, drafting, signing UFA or resigning our own guys he seems pretty medioce.

Do free-agents want to come here and play in a boring defensive system where one mistake can land you in JL's dog house for basically ever.?

Sure JL might be part of the problem but he can do more with less than any coach out there. I'd be ok with a wholesale change at coach and general manager to help give this team a jump start and new identity.

I agree he's the Bill Musselmen of Hockey and can take a bunch of stiffs and make them play competitively in his defensive system. No doubt he's a good coach in that aspect and is the reason for our success to this point.

My point is will good free-agent players buy into that and come here...I'm not so sure about that!

Any player in the league knows that a spot on the WILD means a position with a team that can compete against anyone, at most anytime, and home ice that cannot match any other venue out there...

They are a team who can win games when they are on theirs..

agreed that JL is a very defensive minded coach, but grab another Koivu or 2... and we have all the offense we need to place 2 scoring lines onto the ice. With that... Game on.

Free Agent players go where the money is.. thats the only downfall we have.

Defense wins championships, the wild are just short a couple of above average fowards, we have way to many average to below average fowards, with the defense we have and goal tending this team could go somewhere if they could get just alittle more offense out of those average players

I'm sorry but its official Riseborough and JL have to go...

I know we've won a few lately but i don't see any light at the end of the tunnel its time to punt these two. The X is going to be a morgue if they continue with this style and these management decisions.

Seriously if they announce another sell-out when the place isn't even close to sold out one more time I'm going to Hurl..

I feel better now thanks... grin

I agree with Pier on this one.

DR has to go for sure. He has not done a very good job of getting quality forwards in.

I think JL is a great coach but if the really good offensive players won't come here then the Wild will always be an average team drafting in the middle of the 1st round. If DR can't draft him some offense then the Wild will never score.

I also agree that their style of play isn't that exciting. Watch Detroit and how they move the puck. Much funner game to watch.

How about another minnesota boy, Kevin Constantine. He's from my hometown, Int'l Falls and has previous NHL experience. He's also coaching the Houston team in the AHL..

JL will retire.

DR will be fired........maybe.

They maybe bring in Mike Milbury as GM.....Jim Shoenfeld as coach.

Could happen?

I think KC is a far better AHL coach than an NHL coach. I've heard rumblings about Pierre Page taking over. . Anyone hear the same? Thoughts?

      There also talking a possible snowmaggen over the weekend.

      more white on the way. hopefully not much!

      I might be able to make a run or two if needed with my truck.  Hopefully we don't get dumped on and get a few warm sunny days to get this stuff to settle a bit.

      I agree. Was thinking about doing this. My issue is that it's customer service. What if it wasn't that easy of a fix and customer service was this way. Haven't had these issues with shimano or pflueger for half the price.

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      the way things going for him that is most likely true!!!!  🤣😝
