Big News In Minnesota Wild Land

Minnesota Wild coach, Jacques Lemaire, will be stepping down as the coach of the Wild hockey team Monday morning. Which really puts the entire team for next year in question. Who will replace him? What kind of system will he run? What happens to number 10, Marian Gaborik who says he will test the free agency market? Was this his final game in a Wild uniform?

Today's photos are from fan appreciation night, the final home game of the 2009 season, where the Wild were victorious by a score of 8 to 4. Once the game was completed, the players signed pucks and tossed them into the crowd. The surprise of the aftermath came when Gabby stayed on the ice the longest, with a smile on his face, motioning with his hands for the crowd to cheer louder. He would then toss a puck their way. Perhaps he too was wondering if this was his final skate in front of the Minnesota fans. I do hope he stays put, his offensive talent will be hard to replace, there is no doubt.
