08:20 AM ET 02.05 | The Wild traded Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri to the Rangers Monday for big veteran Mike Rupp on Monday afternoon. As for Matt Kassian, his future may also be elsewhere at this point. He's being scratched in his ninth consecutive game tonight. At some point, the Wild either needs to move him or put him on waivers to give him a chance at being claimed elsewhere. He deserves it. He's a good soldier, a great character guy, etc. But if you need to get grittier on the wall and the Wild's calling up players and making trades rather than putting Kassian in, it's clear the writing's on the wall and the end of his line in Minnesota could be on the horizon. "I'll sit down with the coaches and see what makes sense," [GM Chuck Fletcher] said.

I'm not a great prognosticator or anything, but it seems to me that if you've been sat 9 out of 9 games to start the season, that 'writing on the wall" was done with one of those big black magic markers (the ones that almost got you high as a kid)

After signing Suter and Parisa to their fat bloated contracts why start now?

wild fans are funny. so optimistic. the team had the best record in feb last season and still didn't make the playoffs. then they spend almost $200 million on two players and are only a .500 team 20% into the season. baby steps.
