The Minnesota Wild have finished another season in the NHL.  Unfortunately, for the 3rd straight season, the Minnesota Wild did not make the Western Conference playoffs.  The Minnesota Wild finished 39-35-8, good for 86 points.  However, 86 points was not enough to make the Western Conference playoffs.  Martin Havlat and Mikko Koivu both finished with 62 points for the team lead.  Martin Havlat led the team with 22 goals while Koivu had the most assists.

 

The Minnesota Wild were in the playoff hunt in December and January.  In January, the Wild won 9 games out of 11 to stay in the playoff mix.  However, an 8 game losing streak in March broke any hope of making the playoffs.  The Minnesota Wild will draft 10th in the 2011 NHL Draft, which means there were 9 other teams that finished with a worse record. 

 

After the season, head coach Todd Richards was fired.  General Manager Chuck Fletcher said that it just wasn't working out and that it wasn't a fit.  Who will take over as the new head coach?  Will Andrew Brunette return?  Will Brent Burns and Marek Zidlicky stay with the team?  There are many questions that will have to be answered by next season.
