Wild Sign Kurtis Foster

The Minnesota Wild signed defenseman Kurtis Foster to a one-year deal worth $1.025 million. It doesn't surprise me that they kept him to a one year deal since they are saving up future dollars for Marian Gaborik, that and there are no guarantees that Foster will be a top player after his leg rehab.

The single year deal strategy is freaking me out a bit. I hope Doug Risebrough knows what he is doing. We lost Aaron Voros and Todd Fedoruk because he wouldn't offer any multi-year deals. I hope we aren't letting the talent we need slip away and the talent we have won't be as dedicated to team play if they are only working off a single year contract. I am in favor of multi-year deals whenever possible.

Still up in the air: Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Stephane Veilleux. Both have until Saturday to agree to a deal or go to arbitration. I would like to see them both stay. Any comments Wild fans?
