Glad we wasted one of those contract spots on him and now we can't sign a UFA Dman (even if there aren't any good options).
Veilleux was a great fourth liner for the Wild down the stretch last year. He was signed to a 2-way because we needed veterans in Houston and to be available in case of injuries. Just like Dowell.
We have a TON of defensemen under contract now:
The problem is that five of those guys are hurt. Essentially we have nearly an entire hockey team's worth of injured defensemen.
The Wild can't rebuild the entire D corps in one offseason...we added Suter and brought over Brodin. Next year we can make decisions on Falk, Cuma, Kampfer, and Medvec.
