I share my thoughts on the 3 forwards the Wild signed over the last two days, I have video and stats too! Enjoy and discuss...
Beckman had a great year. If the Wild don't sign him before the 2021 draft, he can re-enter the draft. If he continues to have another great year, he may take his chances on moving up in the draft, where he may command a bigger signing bonus, etc. Plus the Wild would lose a potentially decent prospect.
Hmm...not sure why the links are not working. Let me see if I can post them here.
Those are all the videos I had in my article. Also, I updated it to include the fact the Wild signed Hunter Jones to an entry level deal. So could this mean Dubnyk is more or less going to be brushed aside and Kahkonen moves up while Jones and Robson man the crease in Iowa?!?!
What might add to the hopes for Beckman, is that his body maturity and strength isn't anywhere near its potential. While he may never be lightning fast, IMO adding eventual power to his existing skill set makes him an outstanding prospect.
I think there is no drawback from signing any of these forwards. Next season, the team will no doubt let some of its older players that were helping carry the mail in Iowa move on with their careers and give more of the prospects the ice time and opportunity to develop.
As I see it...
