Mired in the Failure of the Past


After reading the comments on Russo's Blog and seeing some of the same fodder come over here I have to ask are we really surprised. While the draft this year is on Fletcher, he is still handcuffed by the failure of he who must not be named. Why is Brent Burns our only asset? Why don't we have any prospects or picks to trade? Because of you know who. This notion that Fletch is asleep at the wheel is totally ludicrous. He has a relatively high pick in what is shaping up to be an extremely deep draft. He's going to hold out unless he has a true deal to help the team. Are we going to land Carter or Ryan, I doubt it. Even if he made a move like we would still be crippled if you look long term. We are too bad to make a dent in the playoffs and too good to make a dent in the draft. He can't just fire up the old xbox and NHL 10 and say hey this deal looks good. It's time to deal with the fact that it's going to take at least one more year, if not two or three before the Wild are able to make a serious run. We should be thrilled with the moves he's made already for Tenderness, Nate Prosser, and Casey Wellman. He has demonstrated a willingness to make a deal, deals that would not have ever been considered by you know who, without selling the future. I am willing to let him do his job.
