If the Wild were choke artists during Mikko's career, doesn't that make him part of the problem? Maybe you are new to hockey but the Wild were not choking - they just were not that good.
Not new to hockey, chief. But I'm guessing you are, because otherwise you would have realized that not EVERY SINGLE PIECE of a team is the problem. Now I am not saying he wasn't, but 2 decades of management, coaching and player changes didn't fix the problem, so maybe it's the scouting a development mentality that is the long driving issue to their downfall. Not just 1 player
