Wild Free Agency Thread 2010 edition


The Minnesota Wild have lots of needs this offseason, and come July 1, there isn't a great amount of free agents available. Here we look at the upcoming free agents that we may target, and the ones that are out there. Our most pressing needs are a 2nd line center to fill in between Latendresse and Havlat, and a scoring winger, Iíll break it down by position, and throw in numbers for each player.

This is a start for now, I will update the post when some of the free agents are signed, and I am hoping to add some defensemen too even though I don't see us going for many this offseason. We could add one though if we needed depth after a trade or something. Let me know if I missed anyone, and what you think we should target, it truly looks super thin on the forward front, but we will see what happens.
