Are the Wild’s problems Mike Yeo’s fault? (I genuinely don’t know, and if you can explain, I’d like to hear it.)

In which I try to come up with a good name for the Wild’s one decent line, and fail.
Over at SB Nation Minnesota, I tried to imagine the rough time that Wild owner Craig Leipold is probably having when he meets with his fellow owners. (Boston owner Jeremy Jacobs and Philadelphia owner Ed Snider ended up being the bad guys. I’m not sure why, exactly. I needed villains.)
Rand, kind of on the spur of the moment, finished a triathlon this morning. This included a 440-yard swim, which is about 400 yards beyond which I would have any kind of confidence in not drowning. Hats off to you, RandBall. And as always, RandBall is where this first appeared. A thought experiment: Let’s say [...]
Today, Star Tribune reporters Michael Russo and Michael Rand caught Zach Parise at the airport on his way home to Orono. Rand shot a less-than-one-minute video, which ends somewhat abruptly. Here now, the epilogue to this video, the one that didn’t make it on screen: RAND: Thanks, Zach. We appreciate it. Oh, and can I [...]
I don’t have much to say in the way of preface this week, except to say this: honestly, thank goodness for the Timberwolves. Would have been a long winter otherwise.

The Wild failed to officially sell out a game for the first time in team history, selling about 90% of capacity for their preseason opener against St. Louis last night. At SBN Minnesota, I write that maybe that’s all for the best.
The Wild lost last night, 4-3 in a shootout to the Lightning. It should have won the game handily and going away, but it gave up three goals – two of them in the third period – thanks to the following blunders: Shane Hnidy got tangled up behind his own net on a power play, [...]
If you’ll pardon me, I had a bit of a eureka moment when watching the highlights of the Wild’s Saturday-night win. It might have been Hockey Wilderness guru Nathan’s comment about the flatness of the lettering that jogged my memory – or maybe it was just because it’s the first time I saw the new [...]
On the right there is Martin Havlat, showing off the Wild’s new third jersey. My first reaction was probably similar to a lot of people’s reaction. “Geez, that’s a lot of green there. Not sure about that, then.” I’m fine with green as a color, but the third jerseys involve green sweaters, green breezers, green [...]
