There may be some big changes coming in Minnesota.
In a recent interview with Wild insider Mike Russo of the Star Tribune, Minnesota Wild owner Craig Leopold certainly hinted at the fact that he expected things to change during the offseason for his organization.
"I'm not satisfied where we are," Leipold said as per the Star-Tribune. "In my feeling with the playoffs, we took a step back, and we never expected that. We didn't think that was going to happen, so it's causing us to think, 'What do we need to do?'
"But I'm still. . . I like our team, I like the way it's built. Sure, there's some issues that we need to address, and we will. But I'm not disappointed with our team. I'm disappointed with how we ended the season."
It sounds like that those comments may have resulted in some pressure on general manager Chuck Fletcher, as he recently stated that he is in fact listening to all offers as he tries to asses what he will be doing moving forward.
"We are actively listening... on everything,"said Fletcher as per Sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman.
The question now of course becomes just how much will change in Minnesota, and which members of the roster will be impacted by those changes. There have been some rumblings around Nino Niederreiter but nothing concrete just yet.
