In the future though, you do expect it. Dumba has higher potential than Suter at least.

Maybe next year - he looked pretty raw to me in the prospect games.

He has some great tools, and great attitude, so he will be a mainstay. Glad to have him signed.

I wonder how his game will translate to the NHL.

Love his game. Really wanted him to fall to the Pens but Minnesota snatched him one pick before us.

I also find it funny how all the comments just accept the fact the Wild signed him to that contract...fail commenters as well. But, as far as Dumba goes, damn was I excited when we got him. I do agree he needs seasoning n Red Deer for a season or two but cannot wait for this core of young D to develop together!

Actual AAV is $1.63 M, not bad. Probably would've gotten a bit more if he'd signed after another yr of jnr.

Dumba just became even more valuable in salary cap keeper fantasy leagues.

I think a couple of games in preseason is about the most he'll see of an NHL game this year. The Wild have too many guys already under contract competing for spots on the blueline and I don't think Dumba's game is ready for 9 games in the NHL. Give him a couple of preseason games and send him back to Juniors for the full season. Next year maybe give him a handful of games at the start of the season.

It actually is.

It was on their Facebook page and I also saw it. I guess they deleted it now.
