COULD PC BE HEADED TO THE WILD??

Chiarelli is coming to his last season under contract, he has been here 3 years and won just one playoff series and has an extremely tough offseason in front of him, if the crapola hits the fan and he doesn't get it done in next seasons playoffs he could be as good as gone...
Wild speculation No word yet on a contract extension for Chiarelli, about to enter the fourth and final year on the deal he signed with the Bruins in June 2006. Rumors persist in St. Paul that the Wild could hold off on filling their GM vacancy and scoop up Chiarelli next summer. Keep in mind: Phil Falcone, the Wild's minority owner, was one of Chiarelli's Harvard teammates in the '80s. Now that Brian Burke's deal ($3 million per year) in Toronto has reframed the wage scale for GMs, Chiarelli easily can ask for an average $1.5 million or more in his new pact - no doubt short money for a hedge-fund guy like Falcone.

PC isn't going anywhere, just typical KPD malarkey meant to stir the pot in time for tomorrow afternoon's season-concluding press conference. Happy now Kevin?
