In all the years they've been competing in the NHL, the Minnesota Wild have certainly gone through some great (and not so great) coaches. That being said, who is the best Minnesota Wild head coach of all time? This list ranks every Minnesota Wild coach from best to worst with the help of our users. Hockey fans like you have already voted on this list, but we want you to contribute as well. Upvote your top Minnesota Wild coaches, keeping stats like regular season record and playoff appearances in mind.

Jacques Lemaire was the first coach in Minnesota Wild history. He was also the first coach to win a Jack Adams award, and led the expansion Wild to a playoff berth in only their third year of existence. Mike Yeo, the current head coach, has coached the Wild to the playoffs in three consecutive seasons. If the Wild could ever find a way to beat the Blackhawks, Yeo could be the best in team history.

If the Minnesota Wild assembled a team with players from every decade, who would coach it? Vote for the most winningest Minnesota Wild coach, or simply just the coach that you personally liked the most.
