The Wild added a very physical presence to the roster yesterday, signing 6'6" defenseman Andre Lakos to a free agent contract. Lakos will be invited to training camp and is expected to compete for a spot with the club.
Making the team shouldn't be a problem, in this writer's opinion. The Wild's defense corps isn't exactly riddled with Prongers and Niedermeyers. Outside of Johnsson, Burns and Schultz (although you'll hear me argue about that) no one's job is safe.
