With the Wild's meager offense finally hitting them in the standings and there half growing, half graying defense pulling the average card, I believe they could possibly crack top-5 in the upcoming draft.
Alex Galchenyuk is injured which has put a small amount of clout on a view of his potential. How much clout? not enough in my opinion to drop close to ten which at the moment the WIld are at. However, seeing as this team is probably going to continue losing at pretty good pace they could get in his range. Galchenyuk was being touted as a possible top pick before his injury; Brett Connolly comes to mind from last year, with a similar injury issue.
Can/will the Wild nab him if he's available come calling time? (THEY'D HAVE TOOO!!!)
