Wild Bag Skate Turned The Season Around

from Jim Souhan of the Star-Tribune,

On Oct. 17, Todd Richards forced his team to do battle drills, then ordered a “bag skate’’—endless sprints and laps. Several players said it was one of the toughest practices of their lives. Things changed.

Two interesting things have happened during this suddenly promising Wild season:

• The Wild has begun looking like a well-coached team.

• The Wild has begun looking like a well-coached team, and Todd Richards is still standing behind the bench.

Pssst Ray Ferraro, just bescause they suck and they de-motivated you, doesn’t mean it’s the same for everybody.

The vitriol he spews at bag-skates and the like is comical and annoying.
