08:27 AM ET 02.26 | In addition to one of the league's least productive power plays, the Wild are struggling to score goals overall, too. Dumping the puck into the offensive zone and chasing after it is not unique to the Wild. Still some Wild fans, frustrated that the team ranks 28th in the NHL with 2.06 goals per game, have been criticizing coach Mike Yeo's "system," which is their code word for the Wild's propensity to dump and chase. ... "A lot of teams play the same way in the league, and what it comes down to is who does it better. And I think we're pretty inconsistent in how we play our system," [Zach Parise] said. "What people don't understand, the other team is trying to win, too, and the other team is trying to make you turn the puck over."

For the amount of money you got, Zach, inconsistent doesn't really cut it.

Isn't that a contradiction in terms?

The big problem with the Wild's system is Dany Heatley is part of it. He was always a jerk now he is an underacheiving slow skating over paid one.

If I did that my comment would be removed in 7 seconds :-) I appreciate your support for the Oilers Slappy but the team has to get some size and grit up front if they hope to compete against the contenders.
