Big Justin Falk made the Wild's opening day roster out of traning camp but has still not appeared in a game as of this writing (seven games into the season). He doesn't offer much in the way of scoring, but could be useful as an imposing physical presence. It will be interesting to see how the season unfolds for him. I could see him eventually getting heavy NHL minutes if one of the current top-six defensemen goes down, or I could see him spending a large chunk of the year back in Houston.
