In need of an Offensive Defenceman?



Lots has been said about the Wild and there depth on defense as of late, but are they in need of a more capable offensive defenceman? The obvious answer is yes. Brent Burns is long gone and his net finding shots through traffic and clutch overtime goals will be missed. the power play has been clicking better as of late but is missing that heavy shot from the point. Marty Scandella looks to be exceeding expectations and should be a solid #2 if not #1 guy on the back end. Jonas Brodin seems to posses the same type of game as him with a little better coverage in the D-end (Havn't seen him play). Other than that there isn't much but quality defensive defenceman in the pipeline. Yes Jared Spurgeon plays great for his size but I honestly would prefer not having him manning the number 1 power play unit for years to come. What should the Wild do to fill the whole that Burns and Zidlicky have created?
