After finishing the first road trip of the season the Minnesota Wild know they should be off to a better start than 1-1-1. However, growing pains are to be expected with a first year head coach. Those pains could end sooner than later as players are getting used to Mike Yeo's system.
Yeo says Heatley was probably Wild's MVP
Head coach Mike Yeo says Dany Heatley was probably the Wild's MVP this season. He hinted that Heatley would have finished with more than 24 goals if Mikko Koivu didn't miss 27 games. Even without his top linemate out of action, Yeo says Heatley "never once complained."
