Just give up already!!! The season is over!

I watched the game...the team looks discombobulated, lost and clueless. Over half the team should not be in an NHL uniform. The other 3 are pushing 40.

Quit signing wash-ups who cant let go.(yes, as much as I like him, Bruno needs to hang 'em up)
Quit signing bargain basement players to large contracts no other team would touch with a 100 foot hockey stick.
Get folks in who know talent and can draft legitimate players.
Start spending money in FA.
Get whatever draft picks you can trade for from the pile of s*hit on the roster.
Get rid of Backstrom maybe even Theodore and start over there.(shouldn't have traded away Khoboulin)
And did I mention? Start spending money in FA?!?!?!?!

If you build it - the will come - again.

These bums have had their Bentleys packed up for weeks. The problem is effort and heart and they have neither.

Yep, not to my surprise we are no longer renewing club seats, along with other friends who would rather see the winning Twins.

It's obvious they are losing season ticket holders, did you see how many Ticket Agents there were last night!? And how many renewal ticket requests laying around? Stacks and stacks.

I actually asked if they will be coming down in prices (which will be the only way I renew), one of the agents shook her head and so no, instead raising because of their loyal fan base.

goodbye wild club seats, if you want us back, SHOW US YOU CARE.

This is NOT Richards fault. They have no talent. Koivu should be the 3-4th best player on your team. I hope they realize that this is not a quick turn around due to the lack of talent in the system. It is going to take more time...give Richards more time.

The team should just forfeit the last few games....at least that is what it looks like on the ice when they play....the whole organization needs to change...and begin a new way of doing things....change it up....do something no one else is doing in the league right now.....otherwise we just look like pretenders.

Season ticket holder for 6 years. I am not renewing my season tickets. Rather I split a and 82 game Twin's package. It is clear this franchise has no idea how to build a winning team. From terrible draft picks, horrendous signings, and not willing to spend money on players FREE AGENTS this team is clueless.

No one who has any hockey knowledge is fooled by this organizations continual signing's of washed up has been 35 plus players.

Let me guess the Wild are going to make some ridiculous news in the off season that they are going to try to make a trade for a player like Mike Modano. Oh wait that already happened.

Sign Stephane Da Costa of Merrimack. Then release the rest of your roster and start over.

This team is absolutely TERRIBLE. Outside of one fluke run early on, which set this franchise back for years, the Wild have never been better than mediocre.

Man I honestly thought when the Wild came to town that they would be the next franchise to bring home a championship. Not with this huge steamy turd bucket of a team. I usually make it back for one game a year and subscribe to NHL Center Ice. Looks like I can save myself the money. Thanks to Latendresse's pulled vagina, and the rest of these flat-footed ass-clowns.

too bad richards is finding the hard way what Jacque already knew. they don't have the talent to compete to go a round or two in the playoffs. let alone get to the playoffs. scorers? no. hitters? one, maybe. I don't expect a goalie to routinely stop 40 shots and watch the play in his own end all nite. sorry, the talent aint there.

It's okay Mr. Brunette, if quit is to big of a word for YOU to use, I will say it for you. This team QUIT a long time ago. Now they are just a laughing stock...

Fixing this disaster is going to take more than just the continued signing of 35+ has beens. Koivu is not a captain! He has no heart or leadership skills. Nick Schulz and Brent Burns are two of the worst defenseman in the league! Burns costs us more goals than he scores. Schulz just flat out stinks. We have so many medicore players that are basically bench fillers, it is pathetic.

Oh, and getting outshot 47-16??? That is almost a nightly occurance with these guys. How do you expect to win a game if you don't SHOOT THE GOD DAMN PUCK??!!?? Ugh...

Yeah - welcome to 2011. They lost that streak this year, shortly after they started leaving brown streaks in their Garanimals and Depends.

Sure, the Wild don't have a very talented team (especially on offense); but there is no substitute for effort and heart! TR is no motivator and the players have very little respect for him. seems like a nice guy, but we need a good coach, not a nice guy. Fletch, you better get your head straight and bring in some offense and start drafting in the first round intelligently, based on NEEDS! The wild are still paying the price for risebroughs incompetent drafting/scouting...look at how atlanta draft in that hocket mecca?
