There really isn't much to say this morning, is there? Another game in the books, second to last game tonight. As much as we have blasted the players, and there is much more we haven't said that could be, it is a bit depressing to read about the mood in the room. I've seen it, to a point, but it sounds like things are pretty bad in there.
No one wants that. Losing sucks for everyone, not just fans. The mood could improve, though, if they would just show some pride out there. Beating a dead horse here, but just stand up and defend your teammates. No need to go looking for it, no need to be dirty, just stand up and be men. Simple as that. The fans can handle losing, we've seen tons of it. It's the lack of hard work (Sorry, Tom) that the fans are upset about.
Draft position is great, but watching the team get embarrassed night in and night out and not show the frustration anywhere except the locker room is the most depressing thing of the whole situation.
Current Draft Position
2, for a total of 4 points available.

No road record for Wild as Ryan Kesler's hat trick leads Vancouver win - TwinCities.com - Road record? Sigh. No one cares.
