Russo says he still expects a lot more roster changes in the next two weeks. Saying he's going to do a depth chart for the Wild as it stands in the next day or so, but is expecting it to look very different before the Wild are done.
I would seriously think that Gilbert, Konopka, Rupp, and Seto are gone. I was seriously expecting to see Seto traded at the draft last night. I would **** if we got a legit #2C out of it too.
I think hanging your hat on Seto as a 30 goal scorer is like hanging on to Clutterbuck as a 20 goal scorer. It happened once, but the averages are a lot lower.
Clutterbuck has scored 11, 13, 19, 15, and 7 (on pace) goals. Setoguchi has scored 31, 20, 22, 19, and 22 (on pace) goals.
If the salary cap weren't an issue, I'd love to hang on to Seto and cash in on a contract year. Hell, I'd love to hang on to Seto and Heatley and Cullen and Bouchard and bring up Granlund and Nino and roll four scoring lines. But with the cap you have to pick your spots.
