Bottom 6 sniper Justin Fontaine files for arbitration.
Yes, you read that right. Someone wants 2.75m+ per year.
In my opinion, the Wild do not need Just Fontaine. He's not on any special teams. He doesn't bring anything to the table that someone else has in spades. He's a 3rd line player, but he's a third line player that's put it all together and plays a rounded. two-way game. If the Wild chose to move his rights, however, they will only be worse. Worse by the slimmest of margins, but still worse. Two-way forwards with 20 goal potential don't exactly grow on trees, and it would be silly to assume that Keranen and Zucker are ready to step in (even though I think they are) come October.
I'm sure that you guys could elaborate much better on this, Wilderness, so I'll leave it to you.
