Chuck Fletcher on Trading Brent Burns

The assembled media were able to talk with Chuck Fletcher last night after the first round of the draft to get the Minnesota Wild GM's thoughts on the trade, what Devin Setoguchi and Charlie Coyle bring to the club and the overall forward strategy of the franchise.

A few things stand out to me

  1. When talking about defenseman who will step into the mix, he mentioned Nate Prosser, Jared Spurgeon, Justin Falk, Clayton Stoner, Marco Scandella and Tyler Cuma. Not once did he bring up Cam Barker. Does that mean anything? Who knows, but it was noticed.
  2. Lots of talk about getting younger and stepping back. I think this is going to be a true rebuilding year. THe drive for 2012-2013 begins now.
  3. Flahr and Fletcher are really high on Charlie Coyle (as they should be)
  4. Devin Setoguchi had an active Twitter account at www.twitter.com/seto1661 that was deleted as soon as he was traded to the Wild. Think there isn't a social media policy for this franchise?
