    I think the Wild should end the off-season by:

    1. Trade Brodin and a 3rd round pick to Arizona for LW Christian Dvorak and a 2nd round pick (The wild desperately need to add some high end offensive talent)
    2. Pass on Matt Cullen
    3. Use the money saved from the Brodin trade to sign Jiri Hudler to a 3.5mil/1yr contract
    4. Offer two-way contracts to Fontaine, Schroeder, and Tyson Strachan
    5. Sign C Kyle Chipchura to a 1 year deal (~1 million)

    I like your plan for the Wild. Matt Cullen would have to be used sparingly to be effective both in the regular and post-season. One thing I disagree with is having Staal play first-line minutes. He was not very good with the Rangers, only putting up six points in his time there and going invisible in the playoffs. The Wild might get his best hockey on the second line.

    He wasn't very good with us because AV was an idiot---putting him on the 3rd line with Hayes and Stalberg instead of putting him on a line with Brassard and Zuccarello or with Nash and Stepan on one of the top two lines. He's gonna play well for Minn. and make AV look like an idiot. AV has always showed a loyalty to certain players regardless of how they're playing. i.e. a washed up Dan Boyle, Hayes , Glass.
