Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher lured Bruce Boudreau to Minnesota with an enticing four-year contract valued at more than $11 million.
Do Wild fans agree with Fletcher’s investment in the new head coach?
The initial reaction has been mostly positive. However, there is concern, espeically with the Wild's roster. Boudreau was fired by the Anaheim Ducks just 10 days ago.
We tracked down some of the chatter and asked Wild fans to give us their best 10-15 words on the hiring. Here are some of the responses:
We'll see about Boudreau, but he was the best option post-Yeo. Now the Wild need to deal a defenseman and get a center...— Kat Bailey (@The_Katbot) May 8, 2016

@StribSports Boudreau is incompetent. Nothing will change until Chuck Fletcher is fired.— Dan (@LeTHaLMiGRaiNe) May 9, 2016
