Things started so well for the Wild. They had the best start to their season in franchise history and posted their best record after 41 games in team history. Hopes were high! Then the team dropped 13 out of 14 of their next games, fired their coach and crawled into the playoffs. They only posted 87 points, the worst record of any playoff team in the shootout era (since 2005-06). But, as they say. Onward and upward.
This team did show flashes of their potential and won two games in the NHL playoffs, before being sent home in the first round by Dallas. This team did have all of the same players they had when they started the season off with a bang… but how many of them do they want to keep?

It’s always challenging to bounce back from a meltdown as The Wild went through. Do you blow it up and build it again? Or do you keep the pieces you have and try to get back to succeed, and give it a second shot.
It’s hard to hit the panic button just yet. This team, on paper, looks like it should win. And it has won. But which part was the fluke? The success or failure? What is this roster capable of?
They didn’t have a high draft pick in 2016, and that is undoubtedly helping nothing. A bit of young blood and hungry enthusiasm would be helpful. There are ways around rebuilding without high draft picks. Many will tell you the draft is not nearly the team-building/ team-making prerequisite that it once was.
In any case, the Wild needs to make some moves, either in the roster or in attitude. Eighty-seven points are not going to get them into the playoffs again next year, so they need to show the game that they played in the first half of last season for an entire season next year.
