Josh Harding's future

While browsing through articles on the Bleacher Report, I came across this article about the Wild (the second half of the article is about the Timberwolves). Wild GM Chuck Fletcher has already had a conversation with Josh Harding about his future in Minnesota.

As expected, Harding will likely be moved this offseason. Harding told Fletcher that he would like to be traded somewhere where he has a chance to be a starting goaltender, which Harding deserves.

So who exactly may be interested in Harding?

Teams that could be searching for a goaltender this offseason are Chicago, Washington, and Philadelphia.

What should the Wild try to get in return for Josh? 

Obviously the Wild is in dire need of offense. They need to acquire guys who are willing to shoot the puck. There are plenty of passers on this team but other than Guillaume Latendresse, there are no real guys willing to shoot the puck. Maybe Fletcher could try and acquire a guy like Kris Versteeg or James van Riesmdyk. In order to acquire a player like Versteeg or van Riemsdyk, Fletch may have to package another player or prospect along with Harding to complete the deal.

Update 5/9: After doing a little more research on teams with a need for goaltending (it was about 11PM last night when I wrote this post and I was pretty tired), I also discovered St. Louis and maybe even Edmonton (if Khabibulin doesn't recover/rebound from surgery) may search for a new goaltender.

What do you think? Who would you like the Wild to acquire for Harding?
