Minnesota Wild

Last season's points total: 101

Three-season points average: 98.0

They can hit 100 points this season if: Bruce Boudreau is still the coach, and that appears to be the case, even after general managers Chuck Fletcher paid for the Wild's three straight first-round playoff exists with his job. Look, say what you will about Boudreau's lack of postseason success, inability to win a Game 7 and the rest of his foibles: If he's your coach, you're going to be on a 100-point pace with a points share of .616 or higher and you're making the playoffs. Unless it's a season in which you're firing him, as the 2011-12 campaign was the only outlier.



Will they hit 100 points this season? In Bruce we trust. Although we don't necessarily trust that new GM Paul Fenton doesn't want his own guy in there by midseason.

I'm sure that's just wild speculation but if Fenton, after the lackluster FA period, dumps BB at mid season I may be out. That would be insane.

I look at Fenton's off season and wonder what was the point in replacing Fletch?

As the article stated, SOMEONE had to pay for another early exit

No point, zero difference, imo.

In fact, Fenton may be more complacent than Fletch would have been at this point.

Fletch would have known his time was getting very short to make improvements that, you know, actually worked.

Even though Russo and other beat writers didn't say as much---maybe Fletch wanted to blow things up?
