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.
