  • Why Trading Young Players is Not the Worst Idea of All Time


    Let me get this out of the way: I love the Wild's young players. Every time I pass the Hockey Lodge in the MOA, I salivate over the prospect of buying their jerseys, I cheer for them in the games, and I love the promise they show. That said, they are not the elite players I want them to be (not yet).

    The point of all this is: there are players out there who are proven scorers. They have shown the ability to regularly put up great production numbers, and they are not yet out of their prime. If the Wild can acquire a proven scorer by giving up someone who only shows promise, that is a good move.

    In the meantime, the Wild (and the fans) need to be ready to move a fan favorite for the good of the team. Work ethic, potential, and overtime playoff goals are great, but consistent goal production is even better; especially when your objective is to win a Stanley Cup.


    Of course... all this said... I really hope we can find a way to get a scorer but keep Chuck and the gang.
