07:43 PM ET 03.19 | When healthy, Pierre-Marc Bouchard has been one of the most reliable players in the Wild lineup, until this season, that is. Butch started out the season on the third line with Kyle Brodziak and Cal Clutterbuck, notching a goal and an assist in the first two games of the season. The offense would then dry up for #96 as he would score just one goal and two assists in the next 18 games, while notching a negative-2 rating. During that time, he fluctuated between the second, third and fourth lines, and was even a healthy scratch in three consecutive games. With the emergence of young guns Charlie Coyle and Jason Zucker, it appeared Bouchard was now the odd man out. So the question has become, should the Wild hang onto Bouchard or should they sell high while other teams still have an interest in the aging, injury prone center?

Not sure who would really be interested in him?
They may be high if they are...

Bubble team looking for short term fix down the middle. Will give up a mid round pick...nothing more.
