See if this sounds familiar:
"Team A" had a mediocre team and a coach that had started to wear on some of his players the previous season. So "Team A" replaced a respected, if overrated, veteran coach with a young coach who is now promising a more "up-tempo" offense.
Does any of this sound familiar. Most people think I'm probably talking about the '08-09 Avs, and Tony Granato, and you'd be right... partially.
This is also the description that could be levied on the Minnesota Wild and their new coach Todd Richards. The extremly level-headed and rational Roy at Wild Puck Banter is already calling for his head.
So my pick for "Team that inexplicably falls off a cliff" goes to Minnesota, based solely on Roy's analysis.
