The new Wild owner, Craig Leipold will be at tonights Wild vs. Coyotes game at the Xcel Energy Center. I am wondering how Wild coach Jacques Lemaire will feel with a new sheriff in town. I am guessing he won’t even notice the difference as long as Leipold stays out of his hair. In his 14-year NHL coaching career, Lemaire has worked a few different owners - Bob Naegele (Minnesota) and John McMullen (New Jersey). McMullen was definitely a more hands-on owner and I am wondering if Leipold will be the same. When asked what qualities Lemaire likes most about team owners, Lemaire had little to offer.
Yeah, wins and a Stanley Cup! Go Wild, beat those Coyotes tonight!
