NICK SCHULTZ RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Wild were active around the trade deadline for the second year in a row. The third year, actually, if you include the Nick Schultz trade two years ago. The Wild, curiously, made both of their deadline deals with the same two teams they dealt with in the previous two deadlines.

A couple weeks ago I posted the worst 20 players in 2011/12 by their Corsi rating. Worst on the list was Nick Schultz who split the year between the Minnesota Wild and the Edmonton Oilers and posted a -367 Corsi rating.
