07:40 AM ET 01.01 | Barry Trotz, of course, being a notable exception, NHL owners on middling teams change coaches with some frequency. And they usually do so by sorting through those familiar scowling faces that we've seen behind NHL benches in the past. That means Peter Laviolette is the name being mentioned most frequently as the next coach when Wild owner Craig Leipold makes the decision to replace Mike Yeo. ... Yeo has become so rattled by his team's second free fall in three seasons that he's taken the novel approach of not talking to his players in the postgame locker room. Yeo revealed this after his team's sixth consecutive regulation loss -- 2-1 to the Blues on Tuesday night in St. Paul. Apparently, Yeo is going to last until Thursday, when Buffalo comes to town.

She always clams up when he asks, "Honey, was it as good for you as it was for me?"

That's because she's probably not there. :-)

Looks like the players have already voted. Please keep MikeY behind that bench right through 'til April, or even longer, if you like.
