You cannot discount the trades or moves that Nashville has made to improve their team. Minnesota has pretty much stayed par and has not made many improvements.
What's the point of trades and moves if it doesn't bring you more success?

Because it signals that they are improving the team and trying to take that step forward. Sometimes trade work out, sometimes they don't. Just like signings. And in that, you got to work with what you have to improve your team. The Wild haven't been able to make much improvements to a good team in the last two years before dismantling it this off-season because of the lack of moves.

We desperately needed a depth defenseman and a top 6 center but DR's reluctance and our shallow prospect depth limited us to what we could do at the trade deadline.

When we made the move of acquiring 2 year rental Demitra for a hefty price it signaled a move in the right direction, that the team was trying to start a serious playoff run that sputtered because we didn't have enough pieces to move around.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose but you have to task that risk to try and put your team over the top.

He is fine now, missed a few days, but he'll be in the lineup for Saturday's opener. Most likely as a back-up.

thanks for the update...eye injuries always sound very scary to me.

I know this thread is about Harding, but since it's related I thought this would be the best place to ask it. How much do you guys think Backstrom deserves in the offseason, and does he have consistency issues? Based on your comments, it seems as though Minnesota will let him walk in the offseason if Harding plays well, or maybe trade him around the deadline.
