Minnesota rearguard Petteri Nummellin is rumored to be speaking with a team in the Swiss League about playing for them next season. He was a healthy scratch fairly frequently this past year and at 34 years of age he doesn't need that crap. I don't think we'll see him back. He is still signed for next season, but the Wild will let him go I'm sure.
Bill Guerin took a puck off the face in practice, seriously cutting him. It is doubtful that he will be in the lineup for Game 5. Guerin has two points in nine playoff games so far.
Todd Marchant did not return last night, but will be back for Game 1 of the Conference Final.
The final line on the Sedins: Daniel had five points in 12 games and was a minus-5. Henrik had four points in 12 games and was a minus-8.
Brandon Reid played 11 minutes, got no powerplay time, but still outproduced the Sedin twins last night. If what you're doing isn't working, you have to try something different. I really think they should have given this guy a little bit more a chance.
Brent Sopel, Sami Salo and Kevin Bieksa combined for 30 games and one point.
