Let the Wild rumpus start.

Forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter -- by far the two most coveted free agents this summer -- signed 13-year contracts, worth a reported $98 million each with the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday ending days of speculation and reports of where they might end up. As some thought, the American duo opted for a dual package.


Here are some of the highlights of Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman's press conference Wednesday during clean-out day at the United Center:

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman didn't sound like his trade for Michael Frolik was his last.

In fact, he made it sound like more moves were on the way.

DENVER - For the Blackhawks, it's about thriving when trying to survive a spat of injuries that seem to add up while there are signs things are getting better.

The good news Monday was that Marian Hossa, Fernando Pisani and even Patrick Kane will be on the ice this week as part of their rehab and as their returns inch closer.

The bad news was that center Dave Bolland sat out Monday's game against the Colorado Avalanche and is considered day-to-day with an undisclosed upper-body injury that isn't serious.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Hawks general manager Stan Bowman spoke with the media in the Hawks lockerroom Monday afternoon about Dale Tallon's hiring in Florida:

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Former Hawks general manager Dale Tallon will take over the Florida Panthers, replacing current general manager Randy Sexton.

On trade talks in general ...

"[There was] a lot of talking. It takes two to tango. And we didn't quite get anything done. But we had a lot of good discussions and sometimes it doesn't work out. That's the way it goes."

A record-setting number of trades were made Wednesday by the NHL's trade deadline. And, more continue to filter in.

But Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman stood pat.

So fans who desperately wanted to see the Hawks acquire a new goaltender will have to learn to live with Antti Niemi and Cristobal Huet.

Here come the trades ...

The Calgary Flames traded star defenseman Dion Phaneuf, a promising 24-year-old who will earn an average of $6.5 million a season until his contract runs out after 2013-14, to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Here is a clip of Phaneuf dropping the gloves with Brent Seabrook:
