Principal Chides Lax Students

First year GM Chuck Fletcher sat down with the Wild recently to discuss their lack of work ethic after a disappointing loss to the barely-breathing Phoenix Coyotes. He had to remind the team that they are professionals and that they had an obligation to be ready to work.
He tempered his comments at the meeting by suggesting that the team had worked fairly well over most of the season so far, despite their 7-12-2 tally.
For the most part, Fletcher has kept his hands off the plans of (also first-year) coach Richards, but may have suggested that might change, as Richards said after the later practice that he might have to crack down as well. Richards said that he might have to change his tone and how he communicates with the team. Hopefully something more serious than that will happen to kickstart the team.
The players made all the right noises about felling bad and having to work harder, but they know that their roster spots are fairly safe... early shopping around the league is difficult to do.
That being said, the Wild claimed 26 year old center Andrew Ebbett from the Blackhawks. The Calgary native is only 5'9" but provides speed (according to Coach Richards). Ebbett is something of a cast-off, having played 48 games with the Ducks last year and 2 this year, then 10 with Chicago. He did have 32 points in 48 games last year, so he may bring some offense (if not size) to a Wild line.
