I read on Eklunds blog that Minnesota is looking to pick up Carter. If he did come to Minnesota where would he fit in? Do you think we would be interested in anyone else?

There was something about that (Carter) on the trade rumors board; I believe it was determined to be a total fake.

I think they're probably done picking up guys. Nanne was on the radio the other day talking about a trade (he was expecting one), I guess, but I think he may not have known about the Branko signing at that point.

I think we're probably done, and I doubt we'd be interested in Carter even if we weren't. He's too streaky, from what I've seen. If we signed him, we'd probably be spending right up to the cap, leaving us no flexibility to make any playoff-run trades. And he's not the kind of player I think would be worth spending up to the cap for.

I think if Doug's got any more moves up his sleeve, it's most likely going to wait until the summer arbitration hearings have come and gone. There are some teams out there who may have salary cap problems if they lose their arbitration cases, and we might be able to get somebody good for relatively cheap. But I'm perfectly comfortable standing pat and going into the season with what we have right now. It's a much, much better hand than we've ever had to play before!

The only role we have left to fill is a face-off winning center. If we make a move for one, I think it'll be in March if we're looking to solidify a play-off run.

I still wish we could have gotten Sillinger. That would have been the last piece in the puzzle, no?

Stupid Risebrough!!! He's a total failure!!!

Yanic Perreault would be better than Sillinger. Cheaper too.

He's still out there....

and of course, he's French, so he possibly might be signed.

I hate to admit this, but I know next to nothing about Perreault. Can anyone tell me a little about what his deal is?

From TSN:

Yanic Perreault #- C
DOB: Apr 4, 1971
Age: 35
Place of Birth: Sherbrooke, Que., Canada
HT: 5-11 WT: 185
Shoots: L
NHL Seasons: 12
Drafted by Toronto in 1991 (3/47).

69Games 22g 35a 57pts -3 30pim

Assets Has excellent hockey sense and tissue-soft hands. Can find holes to avoid heavy traffic and loves to unleash his accurate shot from anywhere. Is also one of the league's top face-off men.
Flaws Is small in stature and his skating is a major weakness. Defensively, he can be overmatched in one-on-one battles and isn't a physical player at all.

From what I read on the Nashville boards a while back, he had a surprisingly good season. Apparently somewhat out of character. I think his lousy skating would keep Jacque and Doug from getting him.

Yeah, he was only paid 525,000 last year... he was a big surprise. But he is probably the second or third best faceoff man in the league, behind Brind'amour.

Aside from his skating, he seems like a good fit to me. Its funny though, Nashville was a team that did alot of skating. Speed was one of their strong points.

Realistically, I dont think theres that great of a chance the Wild pick him up. Pittsburgh has been looking at him for a while apparently. Even so, I just thought he would be a pretty good fit.
