Let me put it this way: Guerin was interested in Trocheck at the deadline and Florida was interested in Brodin, but no deal was made. Similarly, Montreal was interested in one of our defenseman and reportedly were willing to give up Domi to get one but no deal was made. So if Trocheck and Domi didn't get a deal done for Brodin or Dumba, it's going to take quite a bit to get them. A lot of people don't realize how good Brodin is, he's one of those guys you have to watch a few games to see just how impactful he is. To help since we aren't able to watch hockey, <a href="https://theathletic.com/1619390/2020/02/19/resetting-the-defenseman-trade-market-who-is-still-shopping-and-who-are-the-best-options/" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">here's a quote</a> from the Athletic's top statistical writer Dom Luszczyszyn (try saying that 10 times fast) about Brodin at the trade deadline:

"It’s no wonder the prices are all out of whack for defenders during the deadline: With six days left the market is basically already dry, especially for rentals.

If I’m a team right now I’m probably going hard after a guy like <strong>Jonas Brodin who is for my money probably one of the best defensive defensemen on the planet. </strong>He will be hard to pry out if Minnesota, but he’s worth the price, especially since he comes with term on a reasonably cheap deal – he has one more season with a $4.17 million cap hit. <strong>No one else available will provide the impact Brodin does.</strong>"

He's also for my money the best skater on the Wild. Not the fastest, but the best. The way he fluidly moves around the ice is a spectacle. Next time you see him play watch him defend against the rush, it's a little funky but it gives you an idea of how well he can skate and cover the ice defensively through his movement. I might actually have a link to an article that goes over it... Give me a bit
