The Minnesota Wild franchise reached its teen years in the 2010s, and like most teenagers, there were signs of potential, and serious, growing pains. The past decade saw some of the biggest names to play for the Wild, as well as the longest streak of playoff appearances. It also saw some head-scratching trades, some overpaid free agents, and some midseason swoons to make fans and coaches pull their hair out. (Luckily, that’s not a problem for Bruce Boudreau — kidding, coach!)
So, as this decade comes to a close, let’s take a look back and hand out some awards (both good and bad) for the most noteworthy moments in the Wild’s past 10 years.
