2019-20 Preview:

After failing to make the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons the Minnesota Wild did some retooling to their offense when they signed forwards Mats Zuccarello, who adds scoring strength and playoff experience, and Ryan Hartman who provides with a right handed shot that the Wild have a lack of.

 

The biggest question however, is how long will Bruce Boudreau remain the head coach of the Wild? For the third straight team he has failed to deliver, and has never been the strongest coach when it comes to defense or the playoffs for that matter. Also one has to wonder if in the three seasons Boudreau has been there if he has worn out his welcome. If the Wild don’t do well early this season we could see one of our first coaching changes of the 2019-20 season. Also now with Paul Fenton being fired as General Manager on July 30th after only being on the job 14 months, this could also mean that Boudreau will be on the hot seat with whomever the Wild bring in as their new general manager.
