Wild players as well as the team's coaching staff had good and not-so-good things to think about during a day of traveling Monday from Anaheim, Calif., to Columbus.
Mikko Koivu likely was wondering where his scoring touch has gone.
And coach Mike Yeo admitted he has considered breaking up his $15 million duo, Koivu and Dany Heatley.
Although this is a team that defeated the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 Sunday to move to the top of the Northwest Division for the first time in nearly three years, as well as inch into third place in the Western Conference, not all is rosy with Minnesota's NHL team.
Start with Koivu, who has grown visibly uneasy with the fact he has only one goal in 17 games and even more uneasy with questions about his goal production. The effort is there: Several times against the Ducks he partially fanned on shots as he put everything he had into it.
