Don't hit the panic button just yet Wild fans. As it stood entering action Wednesday night, Minnesota was just one-point out of the 8th spot in the Western Conference playoff race -- and it's still quite early.
In a Q&A with FOX Sports North, general manager Chuck Fletcher says the growing pains were expected on "our best days are ahead of us."
"We've got to find a way to score," Zach Parise stated after the Wild's sixth straight game with only one goal in regulation. "It's not good enough right now."
An article from The Hockey Writers explains why the Wild's offense has been inept. One of the main reasons, perhaps, is that they still haven't found an offensive identity.
