woah there...don't lump us all together. our entire d was a clusterfluff last year and Barker didn't do anything to stand out as viable. Certainly not worth the price tag. BUT i didn't think he was any worse than anyone else we had rotating in the bottom 3 positions--in fact, he actually figured out he had to do something to stick around and was starting to play physical before the final injury. Clearly not enough for the team to keep him around, but he was looking up when he went out.

I didn't think he was that bad. Wild fans have this insatiable need for a whipping boy and Cameron was the man. I suspect Nystrom is next on the docket, even if he does play an average game. Skoula preceded Barker, in case you were wondering.
