Uh, irony aside, New Jersey is apparently looking at moving one of their guys. Volchenkov, Tallinder, or someone like that. Jbow in Calgary is on the market as well, according to sources.

But I look at our defensive corps from last season, and I see improvements on almost all fronts:

Schultz < Suter
Zidlicky < Gilbert
Zanon < Healthy Stoner
Younger Scandella < Older Scandella
Young Spurgeon < Old Spurgeon

I mean, beyond that, it won't really matter all that much. But on these points, I think, most of us can agree that the Wild improved their defense quite a bit. Could they stand to bring in yet another Top-4 guy? Oh yeah, but at this point, if Scandella and Spurgeon can play to their potential, I think the Wild will do very well indeed.
