The answer to that is likely a "no". Currently, Minnesota has the 18th overall selection, then falls all the way to 79th before making its next selection. Though Wild GM Chuck Fletcher could potentially trade back into the second round, the present absence of a pick in the 31-60 range means No. 18 needs to be a good one.
Granted, I may have just made this draft out to be more important than it actually is, but it pales in comparison to how important 2015 is to the Wild brass. Though Minnesota still only has seven picks in next year's draft, the team has made it clear it's not interested in parting with any of them, particularly in the first three rounds. When you consider the fact that 2015 is projected to be one of the deepest draft classes in league history, it's very easy to see where the Wild are coming from.
