How do we feel about John Hynes Tenure So Far?

Locked On Wild - Your Daily Minnesota Wild Podcast

May 24 2024 • 32 mins

On today's episode of Locked on Wild, we take a look at the Wild season after John Hynes took over. We discuss how Hynes changed the team while still operating within the same system that was used under Dean Evason. We discuss the adjustments in game Hynes found during the year, his usage of Joel Eriksson Ek and other key players, and his willingness to put everything on the table with the team in a playoff hunt. We discuss the areas that will need to be improved, and the bizarre refusal to move Marcus Johansson off the second line to the point it led to the team missing out on the playoffs.
