In all seriousness, the Schroeder signing is a nice one for Fletcher. The Wild also inked a two-way, one-year extension with defensemen Jonathan Blum. Both signings are affordable with a potential upside and little cost. Both can be quality players in the AHL and will not look out of place if called up to the big club. At the very least, this makes the Iowa Wild a much stronger team.
