GM Chuck Fletcher is open to trading Darcy Kuemper.
"I think it would behoove us to look around and see what value we could find in him," said Fletcher. "If there's a deal that makes sense for us and allows him to get a better opportunity, I think that would be good for both of us. But I also have no problem bringing him back." With Devan Dubnyk locked up for the next four years, it makes sense that the Wild would explore their options with Kuemper. Apr 29 - 9:19 AM
