Wave Money, Not Flags

from the St. Paul Pioneer Press,
The Wild have a media event planned for Monday. They're getting Gov. Tim Pawlenty and St. Paul Mayor Randy Kelly to show up outside Xcel Energy Center for what they're calling a State of Hockey Flag Day Proclamation. Oh, boy, you don't want to miss that. While other NHL teams are stockpiling high-profile talent at a dizzying rate, the Wild are hoisting flags. It's an attempt to rouse fans into loving them again. Instead of flags, the Wild should try waving some money around to attract at least one of the premier players who became unrestricted free agents after the lockout ended. That would get the adoration of fans. The Wild could go after Peter Forsberg or Paul Kariya or Scott Niedermayer or Sergei Gonchar or Pavol Demitra or Adam Foote. Oh, wait. All those guys already have signed with new teams.
