Dont post here often but the last post I made was about Mitchell. I think he makes a lot of sense, bringing in a tough veteran crease clearer with experience and leadership. He and Gaborik have the Minny connection, where they were both successful.

I agree that he is an injury risk, but if he does get injured, or doesn't play 82 games (it would serve all parties involved to rest him here and there) you can fill in his slot with one of the younger D. Its a great environment for them to walk into, and Willy being a classy guy will surely help them out. It also scratches Slats itch to get a guy trying to redeem himself and make a comeback. He is the perfect guy to have in the 5/6/7 slot, who can do a great job on the PK and even fill in with top 4 mins. I hope he doesn't price himself out or we overpay.
