08:32 AM ET 01.18 | The Wild didn't quite fall from No. 1 in the NHL to No. 9 in the West over the course of exactly a month, but it nearly did. Give em time though -- sadly, if you're a Wild fan. Four playoff outsiders are within two points and the Wild's game is completely missing and [Tuesday] it looked like their will was defeated, too. The bench was sad and deflated, frustration was visible to the naked eye, the Wild lost its discipline, whether it was discipline with the puck or its game (line changes and puck support and things like that) and actual discipline. ... Players were snapping at each other in the locker room. Players had no answers. This is beyond alarming and I just don't see any way this team gets it back.

That is his "I know how this game is going to end up" face.

Why do these bits from supposed real journalists sound more and more like something written by a comment section poster.

I'm sure a born leader like Dany 'ONE N' Heater can turn things around all by himself in his Xmas Ornament clown outfit.

For what its worth, i was actually happy Powe scored one last night. I always liked that guy. Bryz actually looked pretty solid last night, but then again, it was the Wild. I aint gonna get my hopes up just yet.
