Let's face it, the Minnesota Wild just aren't very good right now. Losers in 6 of the last 8, shut out in three of the last four, injuries to players like Matt Cullen and Dany Heatley have completely derailed the team's confidence. Not that it should be surprising that losing your second line center and your third line winger would completely disarm your ability to score in the NHL.
It's not like the GM just went out and traded prospects for a 70 point right winger to play along side Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu.
Alas, we move forward, the pain of watching the Wild slowly rot away, sliding ever so slowly down the pike that is the fall from third in the West to now just four points away from being outside looking in. That's what we do here, at Hockey Wilderness, folks. We look for ways to get better. We don't dwell on the past. Hell no!
We have hired a motivational speaker to get everyone going, the blood pumping, and this fan base actively supporting the team again! In that vein, we ask you to play along with our motivational speaker. Watch him get a minor league baseball team's season turned around, and then, let's see if we can't help out.
