Well, my dad promised to take me to the WC if the Wild get one. Provided I get a job in the next 2 weeks. Deal.

Not you can get the Winged Wheel team out of your avy? Or at least change it to Lidstrom in a Swedish jersey?

Suter-Brodin
Scandella-Gilbert



After getting accustomed to each other, that Scandella-Gilbert pairing looked pretty good last year.
Honestly, IF Brodin looks as good as we all hope and Scandella takes another step forward? That defense isn't that bad.

Kings fan here.

Curious to know why you guys would want to move Clutterbuck? I thought he was well liked among Wild fans, and is an excellent 3rd/4th liner.

a lot of us wouldn't. not sure what the rationale is when Yeo's whole thing is to be hard to play against. Clutter is nothing if not that.

edit: he is probably the player we could get the most value out of currently, so if a good defenseman were made available he'd be the main piece going to get him.

He's basically our only expendable forward that would be of any real value to anyone.
