For the past couple of days, Russo has been pimping Nate Schmidt (Gopher defenseman), and signaled that the Wild are among a group of teams that are considering making a push to sign him after the college season ends next month.

I love his game in the college ranks, but I'm not sure how his style of play will translate to the NHL ranks. Might be a long term project.

Assuming Haula gets the final open contract spot, is it worth opening up another to try and sign Schmidt as well? He could be a diamond in the rough...but then again, we thought Wellman and Prosser were as well.
