*Through 56 games this season, the Wild now has a paltry 58 points. The team is 5-16-5 in its past 26 games.
*Under the much-maligned Todd Richards a year ago, the Wild was 30-21-5 at this point, good for 65 points.
*Even in Richards' first season, the squad was 27-25-4 through 56 games, good for the identical 58 points it has now at the same point.
Plenty of folks watch more Wild hockey than we do. Tell us: Is it the system, the players, a combination of both or something else entirely? And can this season under Mike Yeo be considered anything of an upgrade over the previous two under Richards?
