Well, last night was ugly and Eric Nystrom is coming back to the Wild, even if only on paper.

This just in: Martin Havlat is hurt and may actually not be "needed" in San Jose:

Oh, and the "highlights" from last night


Eric Nystrom placed on re-entry waivers

  • Wild's move puts Nystrom in play | StarTribune.com Eric Nystrom is on his way back to Minnesota, but the question is for how long. Nystrom, reassigned last week to Houston of the American Hockey League, was placed on re-entry waivers by the Wild on Tuesday -- a mechanism that might be designed to entice another team to claim Nystrom at half his $1.4 million salary.
  • Nystrom waiver situation an interesting one | StarTribune.com Just a reminder that Eric Nystrom will either clear re-entry waivers or be claimed by 11 a.m. Wednesday. I have no doubt that the Wild did this to entice another team to take him at half his $1.4 million salary.
