  • Wild Sign Eric Staal for 3 years, $3.5M AAV


    He scored 24 goals as recently as 2014-15 and 54 points that season. Though last season was very tough, a player coming to a new team with something to prove and having a better supporting cast should give us a thought of returning to the 50 point mark as a possibility. Staal figures to slot between the first and second line and will likely see time with each of the top-6 wingers through the year.

    Overall, this looks to be a solid signing for Chuck Fletcher as it addresses a glaring need at a reasonable cost and gives the team some financial freedom to add another top-9 forward. The litmus test will of course come with regards to Staal's production and whether he can indeed reestablish himself as a quality center in the NHL.
