Really impresed so far with Wild. So far so good, but the real test will be how he gets the team/crowd to respond if they lose 3 or 4 on the bounce and end up bottom end of the play off places. That will be the real test. From what we've seen I do have confidence Wild has the belief and personality to be a steadying influence should that happen.
We had a very similar situation last season. A very easy start playing 4 or 5 awful teams in the first 7 or 8 games and were near the top. Then came a run of a few hard games that we lost, JF went full defensive mode and we never looked like we'd win a game again until about March. That won't happen this time round.
