I Guess You Can Say Mke Yeo Took Control Of The Minnesota Wild Practice

via Michael Russo tweets,

Yeo has stopped practicing and laying into the team

Koivu just left ice hurt. Smashed stick in half twice as he left.He's been dealing with a lower body injury & seemed to aggravate it 

Yeo now skating the heck out of the #mnwild without pucks

Yeo is going nuts in practice. Just slammed his stick in the middle of a scrum; screaming his head off.

Yeo just stormed off the ice after slamming his stick against the glass

#mnwild continuing practice without Yeo. Assistant GM Brent Flahr and director of hockey admin Shep Harder left stands when Yeo left ice

added 1:18pm, Watch Mike Yeo post-practice...

Garth, I am sure Russo will have a follow-up story. Heck, before twitter we would not have found out about this for another 2-3 hours.

Some teams are not living up to expectations.  If you are a bubble team your players have to come to play every game.  All teams go through it, that is why the good teams will clean up on points early in the season, create a cushion

And how could anybody survive that long without knowing this life-changing info?

It’s a bit too late to Herb Brooks them, Yeo.

Maybe Yeo’s not a very good coach at all.

I can’t believe people are mad at twitter out of all this?

Nobody’s mad at twitter.  It’s not twitter’s fault.

I think people may be taking this a bit too seriously. I have seen junior varsity football coaches lose their composure worse than this, and they were not fired. This is not “must-see” by any means.
