Was hoping he'd be a Jets target, smart signing by Minny.

Here's hoping Steel restarts his stalled career with the Wild. Good luck, Sam!

Wild shooting to dethrone Avs in the central.
Great potential for such a low risk.

There should be no "No" voting option on this one. Either that or if you click no it automatically deactivates your account.

He has to be one of the most consistent players ever. Exactly 6 goals each year of his career, even though the number of games he’s played has ranged from 22 to 68.

Seriously though, I thought he looked pretty promising a few years ago, but he never progressed in Anaheim. Maybe the change of scenery will help. I see that Tage Thompson signed today too, to remind everyone that 24 is not too old to have a breakout season.

I’m not saying that I expect Steel to jump from 6 goals to 36, but I see more potential upside than down here. I think he’s shown that he’s at least a useful 4th-line NHLer, so if he doesn’t make the team, somebody will probably pick him up on waivers.
