Silent but deadly

Ok so I have my homepage set up for the TSN hockey page and everyday I log on to my computer and see nothing about the Wild.

I guess no news can be good news but with some somewhat big names out there still unsigned do you think the Wild will try to sign anyone else?
or do you think that DR is just going to play the silent but dealy card ?

I think they signed enough qaulity people. I don't see why they would sign anyone else. How much cap room do they have? I think are pretty close to the cap if I recall correctly.

I believe we're at $41

Don't we still need another D-man? Not to mention we don't have a faceoff man yet.

We never get much coverage ever. How is this different?

Our only realistic hope is that Koivu improves his face-off percentages. That and hopefully Walz can be at 50% (he was around 46% last year). Walz took most defensive zone face-offs late in periods, not because he's great at face-offs, but because he's great defensively. I think that if Koivu improves his face-off ability, he'll be our guy.

If it looks like we're going to have a playoff run, expect a March trade for a faceoff specialist if one is available.
