from the Patriot Ledger,
There’s that knee injury that pretty much put Fernadez out of action after January. Even though he was scheduled this week to be medically cleared by Wild doctors to resume play, there’s something a little unsettling about hearing a player say he sprained a knee ligament, and then ‘‘tore it three more times.’’
There’s that $4.33 million salary cap figure this year and next, which may knock Boston out of the running for any current free agents of significance.
There’s the thought that Fernandez, 32, has been so insulated by Minnesota coach Jacques Lemaire’s defense-themed system, he may not be as good as his statistics.
Risk, of course, is part of every trade, but there’s so much logic built into this deal that general manager Peter Chiarelli couldn’t pass it up.
