Well if not Carle then who do we target via either FA or trade? I don't care what anybody says, we definitely need to bring in a top 4 d-man this off-season. I consider Suter or Weber to be entirely off-limits as they wouldn't want to sign here and because trading for their rights would cost more than we'd be willing to give up.
I'm not against signing Carle in UFA, although from the Philly fans that watch him way more than I do he's not going to be worth the contract he'll probably get this FA, I'm against trading anything for a player that will be a UFA in a few weeks. Doesn't make sense to me.
The only thing that I can think of is that they're looking to see if a Wild player (not Backs) touched the puck in the blue paint. One of our guys looked to have touched it. Maybe they're trying to determine if it was accidental or not. If it wasn't, that's a penalty shot.
