Blackhawks win, their fans celebrate. For the other 29 teams and their fans... the draft is just 8 days away!
I'm ready to see how the summer plays out for the Wild.
Do we resign Dubnyk? What about our other two goalie trainwrecks? Do we trade someone to open up cap space? Do we trade any RFAs (Granlund, Haula) because we can't sign them?
Looks like our first move may have happened today - Matt Cooke placed on waivers; buyout next?
I guess the Pens can go ahead and have him back, Jesse.
Not what I was expecting to be our first salary cap move of the off-season. I guess there wasn't a good trade market for him... can't say I'm surprised about that.
I liked most of what Cooke brought to the Wild the past couple years (intensity, corner work, PK), but at the same time there were too many flashes of the "old" Matt Cooke. Questionable high hits and of course the knee-on-knee on Barrie in 2014 playoffs. Add in the injuries of last Spring and I can't say I'll miss him too much.
