At the time of Mike Yeo's firing, only four NHL coaches had been with their current teams longer than him: Boston's Claude Julien, Chicago's Joel Quenneville, Arizona's Dave Tippett and the New York Islanders' Jack Capuano.
Is John Torchetti the answer to all the Wild's woes? The first step in finding out comes in his coaching debut, at Vancouver (9 p.m., FSN).
"You can blame Yeo all you want and in many cases rightly so, but this team gave up on the coach. Yesterday only a couple of players showed up ready to play, that is on the players."

"Very sad for Mike Yeo, a class act and overall good guy. Hope the Wild can turn things around. Yeo will definitely be back in the NHL."
