Think Bomber or Manny will be gone before next tuesday?
Cavanaugh will probably the fourth line center, Wallin the third, O'Sullivan and Koivu and Walz switching out the top. I think DR will pick up a good role playing guy kind of like Brunette and Walz for the kids.
Defense isn't bad but we need some depth, so we'll probably trade and then draft a forward if Barker or O'Neill don't drop to us. I mean
Mitchell, Schultz, Kuba and Zyuzin are our top four and they are okay. Brown, Bombardir, and Henry are the bottom 3 and we skate 6. Bring up Reitz to cover for Brown and Michalek to cover for Bombardir and we'll be okay. Heid is also down inthe minors.
Bomber, Brown, Laaksonen, Park, Fernandez all have writing on the wall along with Zholtok that they might not be with the Wild next year.
