So maybe they don't want to bring Butch back into the lineup. Is this a panic signing based on a hunch that Zucker is done? Or is this something they've been working on for a while? Who is left out there anyway? And what does this say about Larsson and Granlund?
It probably won't be anyone big. The Wild can't afford anything right now.
Which is strange. Can't see it being a defenseman. So why take on more money and a contract of a forward to leave Butch in the box and some kids in Houston? We didn't even do something like this last year when it would have made more sense than calling up Peters.
Well, the Wild can always have more leadership in the locker room.
True, but the guy couldn't hack it with the Rangers at the beginning of the season, and they were desperate for forward depth. Despite any leadership qualities I think he'd just end up being a liability.
