10:40 AM ET 02.09 | Wild GM Chuck Fletcher gave a vote of confidence for a lack of a better term Friday to Mike Yeo and the coaching staff, saying, "Absolutely" when asked if he's got to let things play out for the 4-5-1 team. "Mike and the coaches are doing a very good job. We're giving up almost five shots a game less than we did last year and we're doing a good job. We've got a lot of pieces to juggle in a short amount of time. We're trying to find chemistry and frankly we can't get caught up in the angst and outside opinions and reaction. We just have to stay focused and concentrate on doing a better job and executing at a better level. "If the effort is there, eventually things will turn."

Probably could have 'bought' a great defence with the money he paid those two.

Yeo's response? "Bite your tongue!"

a vote of confidence from ownership-management would be a great thing if it actually meant something in pro sports...
