As I said elsewhere, Leipold will have Fletcher be aggressive again this year in trying to improve and get younger.

I really think the Wild will push for a long term deal with Koivu and my gut feeling is he'll sign here. Depending on what the summer looks like, maybe we have to overpay.

But if he doesn't re-sign and the Wild are out of it by the deadline, I can definitely see Koivu and Burns being moved and a complete start from scratch rebuild. It will take a few years to get out of Bouchard, Backstrom, and Schultz's contracts by then.

That's just worse case scenario though, more likely he'll sign this summer, and we'll shop guys like Bruno, Miettinen, and Kobasew at the deadline.
