The re-signing of goalie Josh Harding was the team's biggest move as the signing period opened with league-wide action.

Another year another bad team. Hope they like a season of 70 to 75% capacity. I look like a genius giving up my season tickets last year!

I think if the Wild go after a veteran D-man they should look at Tomas Kaberle from Boston. Good plus minus and is a consistent D-man who could bring a good veteran presence to a young Wild team.

I dunno, the more Fletcher does, the worse things seem to get. Perhaps his dealings will prove worthy, but right now, they suck.

CF ought to be fired if he buys-out a veteran defensemen, has a cap hit for a few years because of it, no matter what the view is of that player, and then signs a free agent defensemen. That is fiscally irresponsible.

As predicted, 3 years into Fletcher's contract I said he will not win a playoff series. I am now going to say it will be at least 4 years. Wow, Fletcher sure knows how to turn a team around.

The buyout on Barker is pretty cheap because he is less than 25. The Wild only pay for 2 years, and save money overall.

Apparently a few people here would like the old regime back. You know, the guys who let Gaborik go for nothing in return. The same guys who drafted such amazing first rounders as Pouliot and our hockey savior, James Sheppard.

At least Fletch is staying consistant. Who knows, maybe he does know what he is doing and he will build a dynasty here? I guess time will tell, if it works, we will all learn some lessons. If it doesnt, we will be the first team in NHL history that took 18 years to rebuild.
