Branko Radivojevic heads to Russia and the Wild sign Marc-Andre Bergeron on D. Got a little behind on posting here after being on the road for a week, but I wanted to throw these two changes up. Also looks like Rolston and Gabby might be close to re-signing too (I love how Shooter is getting mileage out of Rolston’s house on StoneRidge being up for sale).
A little sad to see Radio leave, although there are tons of role players that can step in. He really wasn’t much to write home about, but did step it up a little at the end of the season and always seemed to show a lot of effort (even if he couldn’t hit open nets).
As for Bergeron, I’m a little concerned about Russo’s comments that he’s error-prone and has low self-esteem. He was on the golf course when he was traded, though, so he’s got that going for him. The Wild don’t need a Skoula-lite, but if he turns into a Foster-lite instead, that’s not a bad thing.
Trade week coming up (with Select-A-Seat coming soon too), so keep your eyes and ears open for Wild news…Originally published by DK on June 13, 2008 at 2:28 pm
