11. Another real good "hockey deal" was the Tom Gilbert/Nick Schultz trade. While both filled a need for their new teams, I got the sense the Minnesota Wild were sending a message. By dealing their most experienced body (743 games), the organization was warning its players that getting comfortable with losing is unacceptable.
I liked that message.
13. Toronto and Philadelphia sniffed around Wild goaltender Josh Harding. Don't think either team got overly serious and one GM thought Harding was a poor match for the run-and-gun Maple Leafs. "He needs structure to be successful," the GM said.
That's odd, I always though Harding did well under Richards.
