Hard to be optimistic with this group. Not many, if any players with heart, grit and determination to get the job done. As i have said previously, it's time to focus on the future, starting with a new G.M. who is a good judge of talent and can turn this club into consistent winners(like The Wings).

Who do you suggest as a replacement GM?
The Wings have not always been consistent winners, except for the last 10 years. They have had lean years (decades) like any NHL organization.

This article hit the nail on the head. The remainder of the Wild's season will be nip and tuck all the way. They could make the play-offs or finish far out of the running. hard to predict, but also far from over. A little like last season, although the team had more offensive punch then. And what of Gaborik? Trade, resign, recover? We need offense from either him or someone, badly!

Someone like Jack Burke would be nice. Some research by Leipold and his crew would likely turn up a couple of others....the point is that Doug has had his opportunity for the last eight years and has not achieved enough success. I'm not willing to settle for mediocrity, are you?

On last post I said "Jack" instead of Brian Burke. My bad.

Brian Burke just went to Toronto to try and mend that team. Regardless, Riseborough and Lemaire have done quite a bit in their first eight years. Check out what other NHL expansion teams have done in their first 8 years and the Wild look pretty good. There is always room for improvement, but the management crew has done exceptional in comparison to other teams.
