It's a brand-new regime! Tony and Joe sat down Monday night to discuss the Wild moving on from Chuck Fletcher. They also talked about Paul Fenton interviewing for the job, and whether an incoming GM can be creative enough to get the Minnesota Wild over the hump.  Also being mentioned was Wild prospect Sam Anas' new extension, Mikko Koivu's eventual role on the team, re-litigating Vegas, a long discussion on whether Ryan Suter was out of bounds when he (according to speculation) met with Craig Leipold over Fletcher's fate, and more!

For the third year in a row, the Minnesota Wild don't make it to May. The Wild got knocked out of the playoffs on Friday night in the most humiliating fashion possible, and all of a sudden big changes are on the table. Huge ones. In fact, we don't even know who will be the Wild's GM come June. So with all the uncertainty in the air, Tony and Joe sat down on Sunday Night (Before Black Monday??? We have no idea.) to chat about the ramifications of this series loss, and where they go from here. And of course, answer a metric ton of your questions. Topics include: The Wild's embarrassing 5-0 loss in Game 5 Was Friday's loss that much different from Games 1 and 2? What are the Wild missing? A detour about the playoff format The Josh Morrissey cross-checker Help Wanted: Hockey Wilderness writers The eerie silence surrounding Chuck Fletcher's job status Giving Top-6 minutes to Joel Eriksson Ek, Jordan Greenway, and Luke Kunin Will Eriksson Ek ever bring the offense? Projecting the end-of-season injury news What could Jason Zucker get back in a trade? Guessing Matt Dumba's extension Will next year be the first year the Suter/Parise contracts hamstring the Wild? Is the GM market disappointing? Will speeding up the youth movement hurt the Wild Who are we watching now that Minnesota's out? Is Bruce Boudreau on the hot seat Freddy vs Jason vs Nino vs Coyle Who deserved the "A" when Parise left? The (second) most exciting prospect in the Wild's system Will Koivu's offense rebound?

It was nice while it lasted. Minnesota's Stanley Cup ambitions appear all but dashed after Saturday night's game, where Ryan Suter exited with a broken fibula. In desperate times such as these, people must step up to analyze the fallout.  So Tony and Joe are back from another unannounced hiatus. They quickly explain that, apologize, and get into the show, which is... pretty bleak, actually! They discuss the fallout of Suter's injuries, including: The fact that it's kinda incredible Minnesota will probably make the postseason despite the injuries The collective blow that losing Suter and Jared Spurgeon during this time is Will Nick Seeler be able to continue playing well in a Top-4 role? Will call-up Carson Soucy contribute to the Wild? Jonas Brodin taking Suter's place Matt Dumba becoming the Wild's #1 defenseman Do the Wild have any shot this postseason? Will Suter's injury be the excuse Chuck Fletcher needs to get his contract renewed And more, including our thoughts on Jordan Greenway's debut!

With the Minnesota Wild on a bye week, we decided to get you some other Minnesota Sports Talk this week. While the Vikings got a mention or two, today's topic of choice was the Twins.

Tony and Joe talk a setback for Nino Niederreiter, the Wild's domination of Tampa Bay on Hockey Day in Minnesota, and comment on the Wild's trade deadline strategy. Then Maija lets us know about the Twins' rebuilt bullpen, their pursuit of Yu Darvish, and Minnesota's potential path to the Central Division crown. By the way, we promised more mailbag and talk about the Wild Card Race. That had to get axed for scheduling conflicts this week, but we'll make sure to get to that next week.  If you want to support the podcast, you can subscribe to us on your favorite podcasting app, tell your friends about our show, and take a few minutes to leave us an iTunes review!
