If Folin is really looking for his best chance to play, MTL would be high on his list. We need a RHD, we need one that is physical, and we have a very good developmental team that could help devellop him and offer him a chance to grow with a young core on a solid team.

I'd take Weaver over Murray any day of the week. A much much much much better player.
Are you out of your freaking mind?

Letang, Martin, Maatta, Despres, Orpik, Niskanen.... ALL of them would be in our top 4, and you say they have a crappy D?

Despres wouldn't make our team, let alone our top 4. He's Leblancing hard.

Last summer, when it was time to decide whether or not to retain Murray's services...

Maatta, Despres weren't known quantity at the NHL level at the time. And they play 16 to 18 min a game right now. Good players but they're very young and inexperienced.

Niskanen hadn't quite blossomed into what he is yet.

As for Orpik and Martin.. well they're decent veteran players but nothing special.

Letang was clearly an elite PMD.

I compare that to our blueline and I'm not that impressed. But then again I think Beaulieu and Tinordi are equal or better than Bouillon and Murray.

No, no he's not. Whatever would make you say that?

Letang, Martin, Despres, Niskanen and Orpik were all pretty well known quantities. Maatta was the only real unknown, but he was a high end prospect with high end upside. Trust me, any one of them would be in our top 4 currently. Prior to this season, you can omit Maatta and Niskanen if you really like, but that still leaves 4 guys.

Wild have agreed to terms with college UFA defenseman Christian Folin (UMass-Lowell). Was most coveted college UFA on the market.
