The Minnesota Wild went into the 2016/17 season with an abundance of optimism. New head coach Bruce Boudreau was going to be the coach to take the Wild, a perennial playoff underachiever to the next level, and in the process, he would shed his reputation as a great regular season coach who struggled come playoff time.
