  • Chuck Fletcher & Mike Yeo: The Press Conference


    Of course the big official news wasn't really news as we all by now were aware that Mike Yeo has signed up for another 3 seasons behind the bench for the Wild. Though the conversation started with coaching and staff talk we did get some additional nuggets in regards to player updates going into the summer. We'll get to that a little down the road though.

    The fresh-faced Mike Yeo will be in charge of the coaching staff under him, handing out assignments and making any decisions on who to retain or who to let go. Fletcher said that he doesn't expect any changes to the staff and those decisions would be coming soon. They did sing some praises to the likes of Brad Bombardir and his efforts in getting the kids in Iowa ready for the show in St. Paul.

    So it sounds like Backstrom is on the up and up, which you would expect as much with him sitting out a great portion of the season by either not playing games or being injured. Harding's situation, you can wrap it up all pretty in a bow, but it really cannot convince me it will ever be anything that completely get better or under control. He'll have his days, and about the best you can hope for is they are rare.

    All in all, the presser was about what you would expect, no bombshells or firings like we saw in Pittsburgh today. The player updates were probably my biggest draw as the rest of the information provided was really just summarizing what we already know. If you would like to watch the presser we have it for you right here, or you can shuffle over to Wild.com for the video and other goodies they are putting out these days.
