No real surprises here, but the team is getting closer to the 23-25 players that will be on the roster by Sunday's opener. One name that is NOT on this list is Aaron Boogaard. He is still an Aero today.
Per Aeros.com, the cuts include:
UPDATE - The Wild also announced that it has recalled Matt Hackett from the Aeros.
Man, I just found out about Harding. Russo said a couple of times that the guy just can't catch a break. He was being nice. Harding was one of the most fun goalies Aeros fans ever got to watch live, but man, he is so unlucky, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near that guy. Black cats, broken mirrors and No. 13s have nothing on Harding.
Someone once told me they thought that Harding milks every injury for what it's worth and more so that he can continue to collect NHL money with minimal effort. Either way, it's a small miracle that he is still on the Wild roster. I am not sure his stats, performance or attitude support his cause. I also find it curious that we never really hear Wild fans chirping about Harding. Maybe it is just because he is a backup goalie.
I would love to hear the opinion of those that follow them more closely.
