So we turn our sights to the draft, free agency and all the madness that surrounds our favorite parts of summer. Now I ask that you not get drawn in by all the hype. I've already started to see some pretty awful speculation around the social media sites out there. Oshie coming to Minnesota for starters, YAK! Or how awesome would it be to see Niskanen in a Wild sweater despite the fact he has 6 years left on his deal in Washington and a 5.75 million dollar cap hit to boot.
Just don't kids. Don't wrap your heads around some crazy deals that just aren't going to happen. Don't allow yourselves to be pulled into the hype surrounding bringing players here when the situation surrounding them makes it logistically impossible. Understand that a lot of our veteran contracts are going to be viewed as venomous to other teams and Fletcher is not prone to be giving up his future for any random deal out there.
Give yourselves some time to decompress. We all like to pretend we're the GM from time to time, just take a vacation from deep analysis for a bit, recharge the batteries and we'll hit this thing at full force in the near future.
