Wild for an Upgrade?
Firstly: Happy new year !!! Thanks for all the support and criticsm from the readers of my writing.
I thought, whgile on the topic of fresh starts…how about the Minnesota Wild? The most obscure thing, aside from a second line of Bouchard-Cullen-Powe, and a third line of Gillies-Brodziak-Johnson; is probably their defensive lines.
No, I don’t know why it works so well, nor do I know who Nate Prosser is. What i do know is an upgrade couldn’t hurt. If the Wild want to do damage in the playoffs, they will very likely need to acquire some experience and…well…more experience. SO who could be on the move?
6th round pick
Why this trade works: No, its not a blockbuster, but it can definitely be beneficial to both teams. Watch for Colorado to be buyers this coming deadline, and Mat Cullen would make a great bottom 6 forward for the avalanche, assuming Van der Gulk doesn’t stay with the team.
Pierre Marc Bouchard
This one’s slightly strange, I do realize. But Seidenberg adds experience and heart to the Wild Lineup. Also, perhaps Bouchard, being the talented scorer that he once was with his minor league club, could once again reach that full potential with the Bruins. Lucic-Bouchard-Horton?

is that enough to get a struggling Semin out of Washington?
Heatly-Koivu-Semin…how cool would that be?
