NUMBERS ARE FUN!
While the team hasn't looked like they've found their stride yet, it certainly hasn't stopped the chorus of "rip the C" Koivu haters, Vanek bashers and the fire Yeo mob from getting in their jabs. And I get it, I can fully understand the argument against them and can appreciate the passion. We're just kicking of season 15 here in Minnesota, and with limited success it can get a little unnerving, especially in this day of instant coffee and instant gratification.
While the wins might not be pretty, they are wins. Good teams find ways to win, even against the odds. They find ways to mount 3 goal comebacks late in games, they find ways to beat opponents who are throwing their weight around. They take leads against a team, and hold them off to secure a victory, even if it's not pretty. Through 2 games the Wild are doing all of this. While expecting any team to win every night is as far fetched as compromise in Washington, and despite the obvious struggles the team has shown early, they have also shown we should have a lot to look forward to.
