ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild have missed the playoffs. Again.

But owner Craig Leipold is adamantly optimistic that he won't be watching the post-season on television again next year.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday, Leipold said he's working on a contract extension for general manager Chuck Fletcher, who has one more year left on his original deal.

Leipold bought the team midway through the 2007-08 season. That was the last time the Wild made the playoffs.
