Continued: Wild made moves early, so could be quiet before trade deadline

One player who still might be on the trading block is Bouchard, who is in the last year of his deal. He almost certainly will not be re-signed.

Fletcher said like all teams, he’ll gauge the market to see if anything makes sense before the deadline.

“But besides [Zach] Parise and [Ryan] Suter, we’ve added a lot of players — Torrey Mitchell, Zenon Konopka, Jake Dowell, re-signed [Stephane] Veilleux — that can compete and check and provide depth. I think we’ve tried to get ahead of it by making our moves in the summer as opposed to at the deadline and allowing our team time to come together.

“We’ve added [Mike] Rupp. Brett Clark helps our blue-line depth. We have depth in goal. We have guys in Houston who can come up and play. We’re protected against some of the things that have plagued us in the past, so I don’t know that we have to go do anything.”
