<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Wild1205</b></div><div>Yeah I agree if Minnesota Get 11th in the draft who do you think they will take I can Caulfield or Center

Edit: I also wouldn’t mind them taking Broberg or Suzuki</div></div>

Well if we stay at 11, I doubt any of good centers will be available, so I'd say Caufield. Kid can snipe, his shot is a rocket and he goes to all the right places to score. He's one of the most talented players I've seen but I think he'll get picked outside the top 10 solely because of his size. If he were 3 inches taller, he'd be gone in the top 5. I like Suzuki but if we want him I think we should trade back a few picks and acquire another pick (like a 3rd). I like Broberg too, but we have to get a forward given our scoring issues. My personal preference is to use Zucker and our pick to move up to the 5th-7th pick and grab a center. We need to hit a grand slam at the draft this year since our pool is atrocious outside of Kaprizov. I have the centers ranked as

1. Hughes
2. Cozens
3. Zegras
4. Turcotte
5. Dach

but all of them after Hughes are very close and it switches daily for me. I think Zegras fits our needs the best out of all of them. His skating is electric and his hands are phenomenal. Excellent passer, nice shot, could use some work defensively but he's so smart that I think he could be be a good two-way player. He's a power play specialist too and would basically fill the role that Granlund use to for us by running ours if we drafted him. He'll probably take the most time to develop but I see his upside being higher than any of the other non-Hughes centers. The rest of them are safer picks to me with higher floors but slightly lower ceilings.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>wabit</b></div><div>I think both Fenton and Leipold were blowing some smoke to get renewals. This Granny trade has STHs (at least the ones I talk to) upset. Icing on the cake after Nino, Coyle (most are okay with that trade), and Zucker rumor trade; is what a few of my old seat mates are saying.

Playoffs are the expectation for the people I used to have season tix around. I dropped mine after Pommer was traded, but still stay in touch with a group of them.</div></div>

Yeah I don't live in the cities anymore so I don't own season tickets, but I can see why season ticket holders would be upset. Fenton seems to not understand that players are assets, and you have to seek to maximize that asset in a trade. Even though I like what we saw from Fiala, that trade should have at least come with the Florida 3rd Nashville owns, or another player like Ryan Hartman. Fiala looks like he could be a great player, but we did not maximize Granlund's trade value. The Rask trade was just awful, I don't think Fenton scouted him at all which is plain dumb. You don't trade away players willy nilly without knowing what you might potentially be getting in return. The Coyle trade looks great for now. Zucker trade I probably would have been OK with as an initial reaction, but the more I think about it the more I'm glad we didn't do it. Apparently we tried to trade Zucker for Lindholm this offseason (per Russo) which in hindsight would have been a perfect move for us...

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MNBassman</b></div><div>I usually say it takes 5 years to truly be able to evaluate a trade properly, but it is pretty obvious the Wild have lost the Niederreiter/Rask trade. Rask is a horrible skater, period...in an era where skating is King. Early returns from the Coyle/Donato trade look good, but there is a reason Donato couldn't hold onto a spot in the Bruins' lineup, so I'm waiting for his warts to surface... The Granlund/Fiala trade... I was livid about it at first. NOT because Granlund is gone, but because I thought Fenton should have gotten more in return...at least a 2nd round pick in addition to Fiala. However, <a href="/users/TanSor" target="_blank">@TanSor</a> helped talk me off the ledge by showing me some fancy stats that revealed a new light on just how good Fiala is...and hopefully can be. I actually feel pretty confident that, in 5 years, we Wild fans will be very happy with this trade. As with everything, time will tell...

I really wish I knew what pieces were on the table for the Zucker trade that fell through at the last minute. Zucker has, for a long time, been the player I wanted moved first. I'm hoping he gets moved this summer!</div></div>

I've got more fancy stats if you'd like, I found an awesome article on Fiala that paints him as an elite in the transition game and a very good scorer :) <a href="https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.ontheforecheck.com/platform/amp/2018/3/8/17057696/creating-a-monster-why-kevin-fiala-is-fundamental-to-nashvilles-success" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">Enjoy! </a>
