From the Star Tribune report on today's press conference by Wild GM Chuck Fletcher on the firing of Coach Todd RIchards:
"Professional sports, it's a great business to work in. And most days are great days." Fletcher said. "This is not one of them. ... There is a human side to this. He's got a family, and certainly it's not easy on anybody.
"But, again, we're in the business of winning and losing games. And the results are what they are. And part of my decision is based on the results of the past two seasons, part of my decision was based on the fact, I thought, we needed more from some players. And part of my decision was based on the fact that, going forward, we needed a new voice to maximize production from this particular group of players.
"I want to point out, I really do believe in sports that not every coach is the right fit for every team. Teams have different personalities, there are different talent levels and not every coach fits with every team."
I know that the Twolves have folks that read this site. Please - print this out and paste it on David Kahn's wall. For that matter, Glen Taylor's chair Wednesday night. We need to be as decisive as the Wild come Thursday morning.
