Maybe the Wild want one of our Dmen. From the MN Star Trib today:

With Scandella and Jonas Brodin (broken clavicle, out another two to four weeks) hurt, the Wild might be forced to search for a defenseman. The Wild would be down to six blue-liners, including Justin Falk and Nate Prosser, who have each played fewer than 100 NHL games.

Fletcher said he will assess if Scandella is a short-term or long-term issue in camp. With the Wild probably going to sign forward Nick Palmieri, it would be at 50 max contracts, meaning the way to get a defensemen is most likely via trade or bringing in 2012 first-round pick Matt Dumba, who has struggled for Red Deer of the Western Hockey League, for a look.
"I need to get more info on Scandella," Fletcher said.

There is a rule in place that you can't sign the players you bought out so it wouldn't work.

But if tampa bay does buy out malone, and wouldn't mind giving him a two year deal. He still can bang and he'd make a great fit for the malkin line. The line would be pretty hard to play against, just their size alone could wear teams down, and is that net front presenter we miss.

I really started this thread tongue-in-cheek. Who doesn't miss the old dysfunction?
