The latest information to hit my desk!

The Minnesota Wild cleaned the house several months ago and are trying to get a more offensive oriented team together. Gaborik was allowed to walk away and the team went and signed Martin Havlat.

Since that blockbuster signing, the team has remained quiet. I just got off the phone with my source within the office of the Wild's GM Chuck Fletcher. She has confirmed that they are looking to acquire another winger, and that player is Vaclav Prospal.

Recently bought out by the Lightning, Prospal would fit in very well with the newly acquired Havlat. He adds size and skill. We should be hearing more of this, possibly even the official announcement in the next couple of days.

Prospal to Minnesota: HRM 3
