POwner Craig Leipold says Wild fans deserve better
Leipold said he’s still trying to “come to grips” with the late collapse that sent the team tumbling to 12th place in the Western Conference. They went 2-10-1 from March 10 through April 7.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Leipold said the organization lost money this year by not advancing to the postseason.
He says it’s important to get back in the playoffs for business purposes as well as to restore the faith of the team’s fans in the process of building a Stanley Cup contender.
