The Minnesota Wild acquired forward Darroll Powe from the Philadelphia Flyers for a third-round draft pick in 2013.

What does it give the Minnesota Wild
Powe is set for restricted free agency, but he's not a star player and shouldn't command a huge salary. Still, he is a solid and versatile role player who can help the Wild on their lower lines and on the penalty kill.

What does it give the Philadelphia Flyers
The Flyers are in obvious cost-cutting mode after signing Ilya Bryzgalov to a massive deal and shaking up their forward corps. Powe's grit and effort will be missed, but the Flyers seem to be doing everything they can to get payroll under control while trying to keep their Cup chances alive.
