Chuck Fletcher is no longer the GM of the Minnesota Wild. We look at his resume with Minnesota, including a lot of aggressive trades that brought little or nothing long-term for this team.

Timberwolves Explosion Ep#228:Something’s Missing

Another frustrating week for the Timberwolves, which boiled over into the overall worst game of the season on Easter Sunday against Ricky Rubio and the playoff bound Utah Jazz.
