This has havelaind written all over it.


Hävelid was so misspelled that I thought you were talking about Haviland. :giggle:

Surprising move if it happens - another year at 4m?

This leaves me feeling like we won't see Tallinder any time soon.

Maybe this ends up being a three-way deal with Columbus?

The dude is 35 but if we can get him for cheap the I guess? Cheap as in a 2nd rounder is too much IMO.

I'd like to see him here--would be a solid pickup--but the price is a little scary. Obviously why the Wild are unloading him, but the return is the real question.

Dreger is backtracking on his original tweet. A Zidlicky trade doesn't make much sense.

I dont want to see him come to NJ only to boot Taormina out of a spot. He has been super strong for us. Foster is the only one I would want to see him replace.

I would guess its one of the forwards going. They called up Veilleux and Palmieri for lastnights game for no reason. If one of the D was on the table my though would be that a Dman would have been called up instead.


If we can get rid of Palmieri it's a win!

I wouldn't trade our 2nd for this guy. His performance this season, coupled with his age and contract status are definite concerns. Maybe a third, especially since he is essentially a spare part in Minnesota, much like Foster was in Anaheim when we picked him up. Plus, I've read that he's been vocal about his situation so they are likely very inclined to get rid of him.

Maybe this is just part a small of a blockbuster trade that sends Parise to his hometown. :whistling:

What'd even be more ironic....next year on July 1st, the Wild sign Parise to a huge contract to bring him home, and state "we wouldn't have been able to do this if we didn't dump Zidlicky's $4 million."

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Meh, not sure why everyone is getting so excited. He has a huge cap hit, he's 35, and he hasn't been very good since his injury. He says it's the coach, but it could just be the fact that he's aging and the injury slowed him down. I don't think he's that big of an improvement over what we've got, and for the additional cap hit plus giving up something in return, it's really not that worth it IMO.
