Good stuff, I think our bottom six is all but set now.

Larsson/Bulmer - Brodziak - Clutter
Kassian/Veilleux - Powe - Palmieri/AHL call-up

Wanna see Larsson and Bulmer on the NHL squad. But I don't see room for them both getting top 9 minutes. Tough choices ahead.

If Bulmer proves he belongs here, it wouldn't surprise me to see Clutter gone at the deadline, especially considering he's on the last year of his deal.

Its not too farfetched to think we could get a 1st for him. If Gaustad got one, so can Clutter.

if we're in contention for a playoff spot, why would we **** with our team unless it's to help us out for the playoffs?

We wouldn't. But we're not going to assume we're close to a playoff spot, either.

They obviously don't expect the Wild to be in contention?

Well, if Bulmer takes Clutter's spot, what does it matter? We aren't messing with the top 9.

You're talking to the sky is falling crowd. Remember, we're a lottery team because we haven't signed anyone in free agency.

I ain't a sky is falling guy. But I'd like a return on Clutter rather than see him walk in FA.

Clutter is an RFA in 2013. He won't be UFA until 2014.

Have we already forgotten about the Fletcher statue we plan on building boys. We are making the playoffs, with the help of Suter / Parise / Schultz............................

If we are not able to bring anyone in, and we can assume our injury drought continues and we are a lottery team after deadline trades of Backstrom / Clutter / Heatley ..... Could set up for a huge draft year, 2+ 1st round picks, possibly Nathan Mackinnon or Hunter Shinkaruk or Seth Jones .... nah let's just build that statue and win the cup, eh!?

Hoping Dumba can deliver some good Kronwalls XD

It looks like those will be on display every night. Kid has some hits in him. I'll even settle for some Phaneufs.

But, the way the league has been lately, I don't mind signing tons of goons to injure other players. Suspensions are completely lulzworthy and don't reflect the state of the game.

The Wild get womped year after year with no justice, and, with that, it's about time we dish some payback. Sign Fedoruk / Simon type players and headshot opposing star players, for minimal consequence. That's what has to be done. If the league whats to remain "tough", well, that's tough. Minnesota will obviously never have stars on their team, so we might as well goon it the **** up and try to win some playoff games.

And, yeah it sucks because I do feel bad about NHL players getting injured, but meh, dog eat dog world. What is it, like 22 thousand kids die every day from lack of food/water or so.... so it's tough to feel sorry for people who play a kids game and receive wages better than 99% of us.

Meh, he's got two years to prove he's not another Boogaard, which is fine. He better be gone though if he can't handle a regular NHL shift.

what is a regular NHL shift for Kassian. I doubt very much he'll see half the minutes Powe gets, for instance.
