Bodies are starting to move out of Minny. First Nino and now Coyle.

They're not done, either. I think Fenton has identified the guys he wants out and is now going to start changing team culture.

That being said, Donato and Rask isn't exactly a great haul, but the Wylde haven't had cap room in forever, so they might be able to do something.

I'm not quite sure what to make of Paul Fenton. The Rask-for-Nino deal was hot garbage from the start, the Coyle deal wasn't terrible, and then he says stuff like this.

Fenton referred to the trade putting people “on notice.” Then tried to clarify what he meant, saying “I guess I’m using words that probably shouldn’t have been said in the fashion ... I’m not putting any one particular person on notice, or the team on notice.”


Dude, make up your mind. :lol:

He is also a STRICT adherent to the asinine rule that you never give injury updates of any kind for fear of the opposition targeting players, which guys like Ken Hitchcock have said is complete bullshit.

He's in a nearly-untenable situation right now, where he has an aging lineup built around two of the worst contracts in NHL history, limited cap room, a franchise goalie who appears to be in a serious decline, and the organization's best prospect doesn't look like he's in a huge rush to head to North America anytime soon.

They're not mathematically eliminated, but losing to the Coyotes in a 4-0 shutout all but puts the Wild Boys' dwindling playoff hopes on ice.

I imagine Boudreau doesn't survive this, even though I think he got a lot more out of this roster than most could have.

Fans don't appear to be thrilled with Fenton's moves thus far, but like his predecessor, there just wasn't much wiggle room. That Nino-for-Rask trade is looking really, really bad right now though.

Wild sign Clarkson F Nico Sturm to a one-year deal. The amazing thing about the Hobey finalist is he's German, but not related to Marco. I find that hard to believe.
