I kinda agree but in the big picture there was "very little" progress made to build on.

He is not the only one, Dallas Stars coach fired yesterday also!, and his tem finished above the wild for both years, and beat the wild about 8-1, wins and losses. You are right, it is how many you win to some degree but if you win enough to make the playoffs and show a few more wins each year, you'll stay.

P S Crawford is available (stars coach) but would not reccomend him to any level above pee-wee.

The wild fired the wrong guy. Should have been Fletcher.

That means he'll be coming here.

The Wild need some team speed. It appeared to me that we were often beaten to the puck and we didn't have that one guy who could at anytime go the length of the ice and get off a good shot. It's about team speed.
