Numbers Game: Chuck Kobasew
The Minnesota Wild and General Manager Chuck Fletcher will be playing the numbers game this summer. Whether it be signing, trading, drafting, inviting or cutting, Fletcher has to put together a roster of salaries that fits under the NHL's salary cap. The players that make up that roster will be asked to put up big numbers in order for the club to have a successful season in Year X.

The 2010-2011 version of the Wild is starting to round into form after the NHL Draft and free agency. With some changes made, let's take a look at some of the numbers by players that will play major roles in Year X. Today, we look at the Wild's first in-season acquisition last year: Chuck Kobasew.

Other Numbers: Kyle Brodziak; Nick Schultz; Martin Havlat; Brent Burns; Antti Miettinen; Greg Zanon; Niklas Backstrom; Guillaume Latendresse; Cal Clutterbuck; Andrew Brunette; Mikko Koivu; Marek Zidlicky
