Don't think any of us are all that surprised that Dumba is sticking around.

Also, interesting that they're only keeping 22 of the 23 spots occupied right now as it looks like they'll be sending Kampfer down too. Do they expect one of Brodin or Scandella to be back sooner than expected? Are they going to call up someone else? Or do they maybe have a trade in the works (unlikely)?

Personally, I would've rather kept Palmieri and quickly trade Powe for a draft pick/D depth/long-shot prospect.

i've been a Palmieri fan up here, but this really isn't much of a shock. I'd be surprised if he didn't get picked up but the move makes sense.

I tried to type out the lines twice, first time I put Suter at RW, second time I put Kovalchuk. Honestly. Brain is fried.

Here's the roster right now with Butch activated:

Parise - Koivu - Heatley
Cullen - Granlund - Setoguchi
Bouchard - Brodziak - Clutterbuck
Mitchell - Konopka - Kassian
Powe

Suter - Spurgeon
Gilbert - Stoner
Falk - Prosser
Dumba

Backstrom, Harding

Scandella, Brodin on IR

13 fwd
7 def
2 goal

That's 22 + two on IR, and it sounds like Brodin will be back soon.


My guess is they try to sneak Palmieri down now as EVERYONE is going on waivers today. If he gets pulled, he gets pulled. But they want to open up that spot now rather than try again in a few days or a week when there are fewer people and better chance of getting claimed.

We will not miss Palmieri at all. He's just another Gillies, Kalus, Fritche, Earl, Foy, Almond, etc. His impact on the team would be no more than Powe's, Dowells, or Mitchell's. Less than Clutterbuck, Zucker, Coyle, or Larsson. Sure, I guess he could be 15 goal guy on a bad team, but that's not the kind of team we are building. We are building a team with 3 lines that can score every night and 1 tough as nails line.

If we're keeping Dumba around, I'd like to see him givin a good shot for his 5 games. I'd put it like this

Suter Spurgeon
Gilbert Dumba
Stoner Falk

Also stick him on the 2nd PP unit with Gilbert or Spurgeon

Cullen Granlund Setoguchi
Gilbert/Spurgeon Dumba

If they lose a contract, welcome Brian Strait to the Wild.

I'm actually with you on this.

Palmieri I believe has decent potential for a third line role, whereas I do not believe Kassian has all that much potential for what we need. He's a decent player, but too slow and not good enough with the puck.

Yeo wants an enforcer on the roster

Michael Russo ‏@Russostrib
Yeo:tough decision to put Palmieri, Veilleux, Dowell on waivers, but with so many skilled players on #mnwild, they need protection (Kassian)

I agree with Yeo on this.

I'm also very eager to see what Dumba can bring to the NHL.

For what it's worth, Pittsburgh fans seem to be displeased that he got put on waivers over Lovejoy.

Just read it. Of course there was an early mention of Yeo.

I feel abit safer with Kass in the lineup..

And all the waived guys are more of a "meh" to me..

And Kassian had a 2 goal game too! He clearly has that 40 goal potential in him.

That is true. He is the underrated sniper our team desperately needs..

I at least trust Yeo with this, so I hope it works out.

Minnesota has come a long way from where they were. So many solid players that its difficult to fit a guy in.

Powe and Kassian will likely rotate depending on who were facing.

Konopka is our enforcer. What the **** do we need Kassian for. He can't do a damn thing but throw punches. Kassian sucks. If we lose Palmieri I am gonna be pissed. Enforcers are way overated especially ones who can't contribute any hockey skill to the game.

@Dumba

Pre-scrimmage: Trade him! He's regressing and 2-3 years away from playing in the NHL!

Post-scrimmage: I'm excited to see him on opening day with the Wild.

You've never played hockey if you don't value enforcers. They have one of the toughest jobs in the game.

You're acting like we just waived Granlund; it's just Palmieri. Plus, I think there's a clause where the Wild can re-claim him if the team that takes him off waivers decides to send him back to the NHL.
