Christensen sucks. Veilleux sucks. Ortmeyer sucks. Peters sucks. Powe sucks. Johnson was semi-good for the first 20 games, now he sucks.

None of these guys are top-9 material on a decent team, and none would be on the 4th line for a playoff team, except for maybe Powe. They are bodies, and that's it.

Christensen only saving grace is his shootout skills. He'll have 5-10 good games, and 10-30 invisible game. Not somebody to rely on in the top-6. During injuries next year, I rather give guys like Phillips or Coyle shots in the top-6 instead of Christensen.

You want to sign Christensen as "13th-man shoot-out specialist"? Well, that would first require Yeo to predict which games will be going to shoot-out, and then slot him into a roster spot, where he will be inferior to pretty much everybody or take away a chance from one of the prospects who are actually in the Wild's long-term plan.
