Wild make first offseason move, secure Marc-Andre Bergeron

There is no doubt that the Minnesota Wild will be busy during the off season. They have plenty of loose ends to deal with including free agents, new signings and soon to be expired contracts. I would love to be a fly on the wall at the Minnesota Wild offices right now.

The Minnesota Wild made their first off season move this week trading a third round pick to the Anaheim Ducks for defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron. I am not sure what the exact motivation was for this particular move since Bergeron is not a proven player. He’s not physical and he had a minus-16 plus-minus rating last season. Perhaps he will fill the slot of Kurtis Foster until he gets that femur back to normal. My guess is Bergeron will bounce in and out of the Minnesota Wild lineup next year and will not be a key player.
