I see the Wild letting these "prospects" walk:
DiSalvador
Ortmeyer
Rau
McIntyre
McMillan
Peters

I see all or most of these players as veterans, meaning they've most likely reached their ceiling. Going with Fletcher current philosophy, they will likely be trying to make Houston get younger as well. Letting those players walk would free up a few spaces for players like Coyle, Zucker, Bulmer, Foucault, Medvec and Haula. Not to mention that Fletcher will still likely pursue the college Free Agent route.

Possible trades:
Zanon
Brodziak
Latendresse
Bouchard

I basically have this listed in the likelihood I see each of these players being traded, the most likely being Zanon. I'm int he boat where I think Zanon is traded regardless at the deadline while players like Brodziak and Latendresse would only be traded if we're out of the playoff race. Bouchard, I think would be moved next offseason if he's to be moved at all.

As far as making a splash in free agency in 2012, I think there's only 1 player that worth grabbing. That being Parise. Given the contract I think other free agency will be getting.
