08:05 PM ET 06.30 | Pierre Marc-Bouchard is considered one of the original Minnesota Wild players but after 10 years of memories, the Minnesota Wild center has opted not to re-sign with the team and will hit the open market when free agency begins July 5. Thanks to the NHL Draft on Sunday, many names are getting buried in the news cycle, but for WIld fans, news that Bouchard is on his way out truly marks the end of an era. While many Wild fans consider Bouchard to be an original member of the Wild, he actually didn't come to the team until the 2002 Entry Draft. But he has been with the team for 10 years and is one of the longest tenured players in the NHL when it comes to sticking to one team throughout their career.

Still laughing about this...

My father-in-law plays golf with Sanchez's HS coach. Says pretty much the same thing about Sanchez.

When healthy, shows flashes of brilliance at times, then disappears for even longer stretches. Can't count on him in the long run due to this inconsistency and history of injuries.

Is there a player in the NHL left that doesn't have a history of injuries?
