Wild may need more D


Recommended Posts

The Wild traded Justin Falk to the Rangers for a 6th round pick and 26 year old right wing Benn Ferriero (RFA) who could end up being a decent depth player.

He had 30 points in 57 games for AHL Connecticut and Wilkes-Barre. Falk will likely be an everyday player for the Rangers.

The Wild's blue line currently looks like this:


Scandella-Spurgeon (unsigned RFA)



Although they are tight to the cap, I think they need another d-man. There has been some talk to acquiring Virginia, MN native Matt Niskanan from Pittsburgh.

Then again there are a lot of d-men available via free agency.

@hf101 Matthew Dumba might make a roster push this year, ya never know.

yeah, I think Dumba will get some minutes in the NHL this season. Not sure if he will make the roster though. That is a really young defense. I still wouldn't mind another 7, 8 d-man like Rosival
