Ugh. This seems like a classic GM "we need more vets for the playoffs" move. That move almost never works out these days. Sorry Fletcher, Clark is worthless.

I mean, I guess this is more a statement towards the Houston blueline. Scandella has been injured all year and the rest aren't NHL material. So, Fletcher is probably worried about 2 injuries on the blueline leaving the Wild with only 5 NHL Dmen. So having some vet in the pressbox isn't the worst idea.

Still, I hate the "vet" justification, because it's always just a cover for something else.
