A Candid Mike Yeo After The Wild Lost To The Jets 3-1

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rant,

I was so unenthused watching this game (not because of the Wild’s performance but just how bad of a game it was to watch), I’m just going to let you read the quotes I transcribed if you don’t mind. Not sure I can write too much more about this one.

-- But Yeo’s quotes were candid, frank and alarming.

He said this was “probably what we need right now to be honest with you. Might sound funny, but I look at the first part of the season, I think our record was a little misleading. I think there were a lot of inconsistencies in our game. I think the early part of the year you get away with that stuff, and you try to show the video and you talk about things and maybe it gets a little bit better, but when you’re winning games, I don’t think those things really sink in. What happens is I think we’re playing the same game probably that we were at the start of the year, but the league gets better and so right now we’re not getting away with those things.”

On the poor puck management: “This has gone on all year. All year. You win a game, have a little success, but you show the clips and you say we’re not going to get away with this, we’re not going to get away with this, … so now it’s not.”

Refreshing to hear a coach tell it as it is. And I’m sure the players that aren’t competing know exactly who they are.

This is what happens when you don’t have a goalie playing out of his mind for you.  Dubnyk’s performance last year is the only reason Yeo still has a job, and there was no way he was going to post numbers like that again.

Looks like this tirade from a year ago or two hasn’t helped neither.
