Wild Still Tweaking

The Wild has made a couple smaller, low-end-of-the-depth-chart type moves over the last few days. Never-was defenseman Shawn Belle was traded to Montreal for minor-league center Corey Locke. And the Wild signed center Krys Kolanos (minors last season). These are depth moves, both with an eye on a relatively thin lineup at center. Kolanos helps fill the "must have several washed out former first round picks on the roster at all times" quota that Belle's departure left a hole in.

Nick: Should that be named the "Alexandre Daigle 'I was also a first-round draft bust' quotient" ?

No real future hall-of-famers in this group, now, is there?

Shows exactly how much of a crapshoot the draft still can be, despite all the technological advances in scouting, training, etc. If a kid's head isn't screwed on straight, he still won't do your team any good.
