Oof. Even though the Minnesota Wild did not deserve to win last night against the Arizona Coyotes, actually losing to a team that is actively trying to be as bad as possible and increase their odds in the draft lottery, hurts real bad. We would have been fine with the team getting some unearned points and chalk it up as a result that worked for us but a performance that was terrible. Now, we just get both bad things.

No one had an outstanding performance, so nothing should be cemented in this lineup. Something needs to change with the actual players on the roster, or at least shuffle some people around.

That’s Wild
