    Hockey Wilderness: Wilderness Walk: Jason Zucker calls out Bruce Boudreau

    Let's go over some news and notes:

    - You're never going to believe this, but the Wild lost again. That's right -- through seven games, Minnesota is 1-6-0. Just awful. [Hockey Wilderness]

    - With such a horrible start to the season, frustration is running rampant. Jason Zucker believes everyone on the team needs to be better moving forward. Including head coach Bruce Boudreau.

    Zucker: "I think more than (a meeting's) going to have to jumpstart us to be honest with you. It's going to be each individual guy from Bruce on down.

    My NHL Trade Rumors: NHL Rumors and Notes: Minnesota Wild - Ownership Wants To Win Now, GM Candidates, and Potential Line Combinations

    Chip Scoggins of the Star-Tribune: Minnesota Wild owner Craig Leipold doesn't want to rebuild and desperately wants the Wild to be a playoff team.

    The Wild are not a cup contender, maybe a fringe playoff team, and have a bunch of players who have no-trade clauses.

    Whoever the Wild hire as their GM won't have a true No. 1 center. The team has many veterans who have no-movement clauses and are on the downside of their careers. They have a group of unproven young players.

    The Wild are in a tough spot.

    Hockey Wilderness: Recap: Canadiens blank Wild in uninspiring rout

    At times Thursday night, the Wild were definitely playing hockey against the Montreal Canadiens. But most of the night, including a span of five minutes in the first period, the game Minnesota was playing was as unrecognizable as the ads at the Bell Centre are to English speakers. The result -- an uneven, uninspiring effort as the Wild dropped their sixth game in seven, losing 4-0 in Montreal.

    Here's how it went down:

    Through 15 minutes of the first period, the Wild looked ready to answer anything the Habs brought to them. Alex Stalock looked up to the challenge early, swallowing every shot and giving up very little in the way of rebounds.

    Radio: KFAN FM 100.3

    The Wild are wrapping up their second three-game road trip of the season tonight against the Canadiens. After a crummy 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday, the Wild should be looking to get back in the winning column against this tough Montreal squad. Devan Dubnyk is getting the night off after his bad performance against Toronto, which means Alex Stalock will be manning the crease this evening.

    Hockey Wilderness: Wild recall Gerald Mayhew from AHL

    After starting the season with a spectacular 0-4-0 record, the Minnesota Wild are shaking things up a bit. The team announced Sunday that forward Gerald Mayhew has been recalled from the AHL's Iowa Wild.

    Mayhew is off to a pretty awesome start in Iowa. Through just four games, the 26-year-old has collected three goals and as many assists. He is also fresh off a spectacular 60-point campaign with Iowa last season on which he scored 27 goals.

    While adding Mayhew to the roster certainly isn't going to save the Wild's season, it may just be enough to serve as a wake-up call to some of Minnesota's bottom-six forwards.

    Fansided: Two Weeks into the Season and the Minnesota Wild have One Win

    Last Thursday, the Minnesota Wild shockingly fell to the Winnipeg Jets. The Wild score one in the first, hold the Jets scoreless, and then promptly give up two goals in the second while getting none to stop the bleeding. The Jets would seal the game in the third with three goals, two of which would come about thirty seconds apart on a 4v4. The more ice opponents have to skate with, the more the Wild are exposed. Brad Hunt would also score a goal, a pretty nice snipe, but the Wild would extend the losing streak to three.

    In their home opener, the Wild would fall to the battered and bruised Penguins and lose 7-4.

    NumberFire: NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Monday 10/14/19

    And our analysis and projections can help you win. To help, let's take a look at some goalies, high-priced skaters, and lower-priced players to target for today's slate.

    Hockey Wilderness: NHL Network to air Iowa Wild game in April

    It may only be for one night, but an Iowa Wild game will be nationally televised this season.

    The American Hockey League and NHL Network announced Wednesday that 20 AHL contests will be aired on NHL Network throughout the 2019-20 season -- the most AHL games broadcast by NHL Network in a single season. Last season, NHL Network aired just 15 AHL games.

    One of the games being aired this is the Iowa Wild's April 5 clash against the Chicago Wolves. The Wild and Wolves met in the second round of last season's Calder Cup playoffs, with Chicago advancing in six games.

    Hockey Wilderness: Still Looking For First Win of Season, Wild Face Senators

    The Minnesota Wild begin their three-game road trip today against the Ottawa Senators. Both teams are -- to put it mildly -- not doing great. To be fair, the Senators are only doing just a bit better than the Wild, and by a "bit better," I mean one win. That's it. The Senators are off to a 1-3-0 start for the season, while the Wild, as we're all painfully aware, are 0-4-0. Both teams are looking for a much-needed win during the midday matchup on Canadian Thanksgiving.

    The biggest concern for Minnesota, aside from the glaringly obvious, is that they may be playing without Mats Zuccarello, as he did not practice yesterday.

    My NHL Trade Rumors: NHL Rumors: The Dallas Stars And Minnesota Wild Off To Slow Starts

    Mike Heika of NHL.com: The Dallas Stars are off to a slow start, their offense and power play are struggling. They've had a heavy schedule with tough teams and travel between most games.

    Stars GM Jim Nill on if management can change the dynamic of a team during the season.

    "You can do some things. I'm talking to general managers every day, I'm talking to our scouts every day. You're always trying to get better every day. But the salary cap comes into play, assets come into play. A lot of trades are conversations that took place two months ago, so you just keep at it and keep at it, and then you see what happens.

    Hockey Wilderness: A way-too-early look at the 2020 NHL Entry Draft

    After arguably the worst start to a season in franchise history, it's looking like the Minnesota Wild could be in for a pretty long year. Yes, Minnesota earned its first win of the season on Monday, but that came against a comically awful Ottawa Senators team. Through six games, the Wild are averaging just 2.5 goals per game while allowing an average of 5.25 goals against. Which is quite bad! The season is still very young, but judging by what the Wild have exhibited in the early going, it's looking like Minnesota could be a lottery team for the second consecutive season (barring a St.
