On Marek vs Wysh. Wysh did hilarious impression of Bryz.

I'd rather be in a situation where we could deal a healthy Backs so that we could run a Kuemper/Bryz tandem next year than be in a situation where we let Bryz walk and hope that Backs returns to form/health.

We also don't know where Harding's health is going to be next year. Too many balls in the air.

It would be a hard choice, but if I were running the show, I would put Harding on waivers to start next year. Wild can't rely on him and need to re-sign Kuemper, plus have Backstrom signed for two more years. Harding could either retire if he doesn't want to play in Iowa, or maybe he gets picked up elsewhere, otherwise he could be a great mentor for Gustafsson.

I would be extremely, extremely surprised if the Wild signed a goalie this summer, outside of Kuemper.

Or, if Harding sees the writing on the wall, maybe the he would accept a different job within the organization ala Brunette and Bomber.

No need for waivers, that'd be such bad PR. We have the space to carry him if necessary, and LTIR is always an option. We can stick it out for one more year. Let him re-evaluate after next year if he wants to find another NHL job or retire.

So Harding would essentially be next year's Rupp? Never plays, just takes up a roster spot and cap space?

I think it's more fair to him to put him on waivers and give him a chance to play elsewhere.

If he is able to play, then he plays here. If not, it has no effect on us anyway, and we use LTIR to open up the roster spot.

Why not..

LTIR Harding
Sign Bryz to a 2-3 year deal
Start the season with Bryz/Bäcks tandem
Showcase Bäcks a bit, trade him for whatever we can get
Continue with Bryz/Kuemper tandem.
I have to imagine there will be some team on a complete rebuild out there who will need to make the floor who would trade "future considerations" to us for Backs.

Who knows, maybe Backs gets a rebound year.

Backstrom is schwag. Bryz for a 4th might be best deadline deal.

I was going to say Bryz could be the best 4th round pick ever

Fletch was a mad scientist with this team and it's paying off! FAR more positives in all his moves than negatives!

Bryz looks like a bargain for a 4th, unless you consider Backstrom was an undrafted free agent, and Kuemper was a 6th rounder.

Harding cost a whole 2nd rounder

From Russo: Ilya Bryzgalov is the only goalie to get a point in his first 10 starts in Wild history,

Humangous big milestone. He's here only a few weeks and he's already in the record books.

Simply incredible how he's finding such a strong groove.

This has been one of the best pickups that Fletcher has done. Cost us a 4th rounder and we have an undefeated in regulation goalie with 3 shutouts and has really put a lot more confidence in this team.

Sure, he's playing well now but that 4th rounder will cost us 4 Cups in the future.
