Wild @ Predators

Sean Bergenheim makes his Wild debut and Yeo shuffles the lines in hopes of figuring out Nashville Chcuk Fletcher remained active at the trade deadline again this season acquiring Sean Bergenheim with a 2016 seventh-round pick from the Florida Panthers for a 2016 third-round pick. With injuries adding up to key players, Minnesota knew they needed more depth and Bergenheim provides that. He has playoff experience and brings a gritty presence that the Wild have lost with Matt Cooke and Ryan Carter's injuries. Minnesota had a tough loss to Edmonton and now find themselves a point out of the...

BREAKING: Minnesota Wild Acquire Sean Bergenheim

The Minnesota Wild acquire winger Sean Bergenheim and a 7th-round pick from the Florida Panthers for a 2016 3rd-round pick. The Minnesota Wild have been looking to make a move to bolster the Minnesota Wild's depth. Chuck Fletcher's solution? Sean Bergenheim. No doubt with Jason Zucker, Ryan Carter, and Matt Cooke out with injury for two weeks- not to mention Dallas, Winnipeg, and Nashville beefing up- Fletcher had been looking to make a move to offset the injury bug. However, a move had not been made as of yet because the prices have been high due to lack of sellers. Fletcher's patience...

Evander Kane must prove able

In many ways, Evander Kane would have been a perfect Bruin.He’s big enough at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, he finishes his checks, he can shoot the puck at close to an elite level and he is competitive. Kane even knocked out Matt Cooke with one punch.But his very un-Bruin-like approach to the team concept — at least that’s the strong perception of the young man — would have made him a bad fit. And if he doesn’t change his lone wolf ways, Kane may not be a good fit anywhere.

Matt Cooke out for season won't derail Wild's attempt to make the playoffs

Early this week, news came from the Wild that forward Matt Cooke will likely miss the remainder of the season. Per sources of the Star Tribune's Michael Russo, Cooke will likely need season ending surgery as well. This coming after already missing 22 games this season due to a hip flexor. Missing Cooke from the line-up isn't going to derail the season (anymore than the goaltending has already) like if a major injury hit one of the top four defensemen. No, Matt Cooke, was reviled the day he was signed by the Wild. Sure, he played his role well last season, but a six game suspension in the...
