The Minneapolis Star Tribune (Jerry Zgoda) reports (via blog): Wolves radio analyst Kevin Lynch –  the former Gophers star and radio guy who left that job to join the Wolves’ broadcast last fall — was one of eight employees laid off Thursday in cost-cutting moves that are another sign of these economic times. Radio play-by-play man Alan Horton will go it alone while the TV team of Tom Hanneman and Jim Petersen presumably will remain intact.
