It sure looked like the Minnesota Wild had its roster set for the 2010-2011 season. There were rumors that Mike Modano might return to the birthplace of his NHL career, but that idea (however far-fetched) was squashed by him signing with his hometown Detroit Red Wings.
But General Manager Chuck Fletcher wasn’t finished rounding out his roster for 2010-11. Fletcher often talks about finding character, grit and leadership when acquiring players. On Friday, he found a guy that epitomizes all of those qualities, and he’s got one more. He wins.
Fresh off winning his third Stanley Cup, John Madden agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Wild. His presence provides more depth at a position that is typically the toughest to fill for NHL teams.
