Russo is reporting that Mike Yeo will be announced as the new head coach of the Wild tomorrow. So, the Aeros are on the hunt yet again for a new coach.
Personally, I'm delighted for Mike. I really can't say enough nice things about him as a person and as a coach and he absolutely has earned the opportunity to be a head coach in the NHL.
And as a Wild fan myself, the last two years have been a dreadful experience, so I'm looking forward to watching the sort of team Mike puts on the ice. I will be rooting for him AND for the boys.
I think a good number of them will be guys he's coached down here, if they go for a youth movement up there, so it's a good transition for them, too.
But of course, it's always a bit pins-and-needles time when you get a new coach down here. So here's to the team making another good choice when they fill his big shoes.
All the best of luck to Mike. I hope Wild fans enjoy him as much as we have.
I'm sure we'll (and by we, I mean someone with actual quotes) be back with more before long, but I wanted to get it out there.
