Just a quick note here to let everyone know that Nick Palmieri was traded along with Darroll Powe of the Wild to the NY Rangers for Mike Rupp.
It was only a matter of time for Palmieri, who wore out his welcome last month when he refused to report to the Aeros after the Wild cut him following training camp.
In his last 11 games, Palmieri scored just one goal, added one assist and was virtually invisible until a few games ago.
Really, this is for the best for the organization, but the team is really hurting for bodies right now. Still lots of guys injured, and the comment from head coach John Torchetti is that there's no timetable for their return.
We'll see how it affects the lines tonight.
