This is one ELC that has "meh" come to mind...

Sure, he could be the next Lundquist... in 7 to 8 years...

Meh.

By that time, Nikko Hoivenen will be in the NHL and being the next Pekka Rinne and we didn't sign *him* to an ELC...

He should be in the AHL pretty soon. But he's putting up good numbers for a 20 year old. I'm kind of excited actually because he's shown a lot of talent.

wonder what the sticky point was...probably wanted him in the AHL while we shuffled up Hackett or Kuemper and he wanted to stay put?

Johan Gustafsson's contract with the ‪#mnwild‬ averages $900K/yr (including $90K signing bonus and games played bonus), per team source.

Pretty standard rookie deal for Gustafsson, who gets $67,500 if he plays in the AHL. ‪#mnwild

well we must have some sort of plan for him if we signed him. i don't think the market for goalies is that good so it couldn't be a trade, could it?

My bet is that he spends another season in Sweden...then comes over to Houston the following season.

With this signing I doubt Harding will be returning. Hackett could be the backup for next season.

...or the Wild sign a veteran back-up goalie and let Hackett get the majority of the starts in Houston.

I doubt this happens. The kid needs starting minutes in order to further his development.

or Hackett starts and Backstrom has to pump his tires.

as far as this signing i love it, i feel that Gustafsson is our 2nd best goalie prospect and that he has a really good chance to develop into a good NHL goalie with the right coaching.

i think the sticking point was the money he wanted tho, he is a 6th round draft pick and he got a 900k deal, that is what the hold up was but it shows that our upper management feels he's worth the price.

A $6 million back-up goalie? Not likely.
