Yeo starts by going with Parise-Granlund-Pominville against ARI's Gagner line and Yandle pair

Just re-reading my recent tweet on Kings' winner, want to make clear Yeo didn't single anyone out. It was an overall breakdown in coverage

Oct 19, 2014

Second goal, Yeo said Zucker had the strong-side dman...So, Pearson is Cooke's guy

Oct 18, 2014

Yeo said way Coyle is playing, he needs more ice time/will get it. Yeo gave Zucker a pep talk, let him know 1 mistake is part of game

Oct 04, 2014

Yeo on Dumba/Folin: It’s hard for me to say they had a bad game let alone a bad period....Those guys have made things difficult on us.

Yeo loved Christian Folin's camp, too, and basically said Jason Zucker made the #mnwild

Oct 04, 2014

Yeo said the #mnwild would have to find a "creative" reason not to put Matt Dumba on opening-night roster. Sounds like he's on it

Oct 04, 2014

Yeo wants to see Ballard-Folin together again, says nothing to read into Dumba being scratched in preseason finale #mnwild

Oct 04, 2014

Yeo is curious to see Coyle at center again, loves the Zucker-Coyle chemistry & thinks Nino fits there like Heatley did last yr at times

Oct 03, 2014

Yeo needs to talk with Prosser and will ask for patience while #mnwild sorts out final D decisions. Won't play tomorrow, likely not opener

Sep 27, 2014

Yeo on Rechlicz: "He’s fun to have on the bench, I know that. There’s a good vibe with this guy because he’s all-in for his teammates."

Sep 27, 2014

Big ? if Keranen can make this team if #mnwild is healthy with its 6 PP fwds. Yeo said he'll get another game. He wants a full 60 from him

Olofsson was checked late in the game and suffered an upper body injury, Yeo said. They'll see how he is tomorrow #mnwild

Sep 27, 2014

Yeo loves the new scoreboard because "it's a clearer picture on the mistakes that we made (laughing)." #mnwild

Sep 26, 2014

RT @BlountStrib: Vanek got "bumped" in Thursday's game, coach Mike Yeo says, and was too sore to practice today. Unlikely to play Saturday.

Sep 25, 2014

Yeo on Zucker: "We’re trying to give him every chance and he’s buying into it and doing a good a job." #mnwild

Sep 25, 2014
