Brandon Tanev (37.5 pts)
I don’t really have anything against Brandon Tanev other than my Minnesota Wild bias, he played for Winnipeg against the Wild in the 2018 playoffs and happened to be teammates with Josh Morrisey who did this to Eric Staal and it went uncalled. And Daniel Winnik absolutely works him in a game the Jets absolutely clobber the Wild in.
Overall, that was a tough end of the season for the Wild. Suter had his career-threatening injury, Parise gets injured in the single game the Wild actually beat Winnipeg in, and Spurgeon plays that series on 1.5 hamstrings after tearing it in a mid-march matchup against Colorado after losing an edge and going into the boards awkwardly.
Anyways, I don’t see Tanev joining the Wild and I am not that upset about it
Cody McLeod (0 pts)
Oh, and I didn’t default him a zero. He actually scored a zero. Pretty Great.
That wraps up the prelude to the 5 groups of UFAs available. Come back in the next couple of days to learn about the players that just made the top 15. These forwards won’t be silver bullets for the Wild’s scoring woes but could be great additions if they’re signed on salary cap-friendly deals. See you then. Skol Wild.
