Is there scoring situation in that big of a need?

Yeah, they are 24th in scoring with 128 goals in 58 games. Thats a 2.19 Goals For, while they have a 2.21 Goals Against. League leader is Ottawa with 3.32 Goals For.

So yeah, scoring is an issue. Specially since Manny is not performing like he did last year.

Goalies will perform in the clutch for their team, or at least that is what everybody hopes for.

Who would you like the wild to get?

I think Columbus should give the Wild Rick Nash. But that is a dream that will never happen.

I dont think that will happen man, because Nash is one of the best prospects in the league.

The Minnesota Wild traded center Darby Hendrickson to the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday for a 2005 fourth-round draft pick.

The Wild also sent their eighth-round pick this year to the Avalanche.

Hendrickson, an original member of the Wild, scored one goal in 14 games before being reassigned to Houston of the AHL on Dec. 19.

In 31 games with the Aeros, Hendrickson had nine points and was a minus-14.

********************************

Also Wednesday, the Wild recalled goaltender Johan Holmqvist from AHL Houston to back up starter Manny Fernandez.

Fernandez is expected to start for Minnesota against Nashville and Dallas this week in place of Dwayne Roloson, whose father died Monday of a stomach aneurysm. Roloson traveled to his hometown of Simcoe, Ontario, on Tuesday to make funeral arrangements.

Holmqvist has a 17-24-6 record with a 2.64 goals-against average in 49 games for the Aeros this season. He ranks second in the AHL with 1,191 saves. Holmqvist has appeared in four career NHL games with the New York Rangers, going 0-3.

The last-place Wild play at Nashville on Thursday night before traveling to play the Stars on Friday.

Ack, the Minnesota native is no longer a Wild. Did not hear that. Knew about Roloson and the callup. I wish Roli and his family the best.

Well I guess Darby has a chance now at Lord Stanley's Cup.

And your right godfather, Nash is not going anywhere for a long long time. It was a pipe dream

I was just joking. There is no way Columbus will give up Nash. And I don't blame them. He is going to be great.

Good news on the Wild front though. Wes Walz has signed a multi-year extension. No details at the moment.

Well, I was predicting they were going to move Walz before the trade deadline this year. Guess not.

Rolo is back after heading to Canada after his father passed away.

I give the Wild a 10% chance to make the playoffs. I know they can play well. They proved that against Vancouver the other night. They just need to bring that fire to the ice everytime they have a game.

Looks like Walz's deal is for 3 years. No info on how much.
