Has anyone here ever heard of Mikko Koivu actualy having contract negotiations with Wild Management as of yet? I know that (like many other Europeans) he wanted to stay in his homeland to develop there. But seeing that it has been 3 years since his draft year, I figure that a contract is going to have to be signed soon -if ever. European draftees have 4 years to sign with their NHL team before re-entering the draft again.
I think Mikko was signed by the Wild already last year, but his contract allowed him to play for TPS Finland last season. If I remember right, he should be playing for Wild this season.
