Dumba Scratched Again, Foligno Out

Marcus Foligno will miss tonight's game against the Panthers due to illness.

Needless to say that is a big role to fill on the GREEF line without #17 in the lineup.

On top of that Matt Dumba will be a healthy scratch for the second straight tilt, leading many to speculate is this asset management for a trade to take place involving the Wild defenseman.

The message is that it is not asset management, and it is related to Dumba's play on the ice. If that is the case what is going on here? Is not playing Dumba, one of the leaders and assistant captains of the team, helping the trade value of Dumba?

Head scratching for certain but gotta wonder what is the end game here for a player that is clearly not in the Wild's long term plan any longer.

It's always Hockey Day in The State of Hockey!
