<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>SociallyHawkward</b></div><div>Idk. As a hawks fan strome lit it up for a season and only got 3 mil. If Fiala has a great season I still can't see him getting more than a 5 mil 5 year deal.</div></div>

Strome experienced notable fallback from his trade year (in his contract year). He also was playing with elite players.... and happened to take a bridge deal due to the Hawks cap situation and the state of the league / world.

Hawks fans generally like to compare situations on other teams to the hawks (aside: i mean i get it, but why does it seem like hawks fans do this more than other teams??) but theres no comparing Strome and Fiala.

- Fiala has already had his bridge deal. Players come off bridges either aiming to go to FA, or to get money. Strome is 2 years behind... essentially getting what Fiala already did.

- Fiala already had a proven year in Nashville, followed by a down year that sparked the trade

- His explosion was on a different tier from Stromes.

- Fiala became the face of Minnesota. the faces of Chicago are long established. Your profile picture is one of said faces. Minnesota had no face, then Fiala exploded.

- He's doing this alone. There's not really any star power on this team. he has become a star, and plays with undeniable energy and determination. Watching him late last season, in the playoffs, and even this first game tonight... you know when he is on the ice. He's the teams best player; and I note again that he is able to do this essentially alone. There's no Toews or Kane, heck, there's no DeBrincat level players on this team.

If he builds on the past two years, and at the age of 24, continues to grow, I see no reason why MIN won't hand him a big boy long term contract now. It's the same type of betting on the future that happened with Keller and Hischier. Except I'd argue there's more to look forward to in this case, and more already proven than those two cases.

Wild fans can chime in ( <a href="/users/TanSor" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@TanSor</a> <a href="/users/MNBassman" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@MNBassman</a> ), but if he exceeds all odds again this year and decides to ink long term, I'd expect at least 6.5M....

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mnwild1790</b></div><div>My goal for the year as this: Youth improvement and Reviving Veterans.

Greenway, Fiala, Kaprizov, Ek, Addison (maybe), Rossi (maybe), and Kakhonen (although in backup role) all will need to step up if we are to move forward as a franchise. I think Rossi will make the team, but they may want him to develop another year in Switzerland. Addison is unlikely to make the team but I would still love to see him fight for a spot.

As for the veterans, they know their roles. Bonino, Johansson, and Bjugstad were all brought in to shake things up while still providing players who, when healthy and at top form, can play really well. The key is "when healthy and at top form." What players are we getting? Only time will tell. All players know that, with one year left, this is their opportunity to showcase that they're worthy assets to a team.

If both those two things happen, we'll be fine. But here's where I see us:

Offense: Average. This can change quickly if Kaprizov clicks right away and Fiala picked up where he left off. But we'll have to wait and see on that. If they aren't able to carry the load offensively, we'll have a hard time competing.

Defense: Elite. I'm biased but we are elite defensively. Good in our own zone, good with puck movement, I could sing our praises all day...the only (and biggest) question is...

Goaltending: ? That's right. I have no clue. What Cam Talbot are we getting? I hope to God it's the pre-2018 Talbot. If it's post-2018 Talbot, may God have mercy on our souls...

Anyways, my prediction is that we finish 6th in the Division. I hope I'm wrong but that's how I feel.</div></div>

I'll take 2020 playoffs Talbot. If Wild get that then they could be a dangerous team. I am concerned about the system changes under Dean as Wild may not be as sound defensively, however they are bringing in a more aggressive offensive system so that is exciting.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TanSor</b></div><div>Here's my scouting report on him:

Rossi is a slick, competitive center whose size can fool you. He does not play like he’s only 5’9” and part of that is because of his very strong lower body. Notice how at the end of <a href="https://youtu.be/wbSWJ0I77VE?t=107" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">this clip</a> Rossi gets shoved by a defenseman from behind who is clearly 3-4” taller than him and he shakes it off like nothing. That’s why I think he won’t have a problem with his size at center in the NHL. He isn’t going to burn you every shift, but he <a href="https://youtu.be/wbSWJ0I77VE?t=97" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">has some speed</a> in him. He also combines <a href="https://youtu.be/wbSWJ0I77VE?t=132" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">good edge work with good hands</a> to evade checks (yes, he just skated through three opponents without being touched). <a href="https://youtu.be/wbSWJ0I77VE?t=290" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">His hands are among the best in this class</a>. He’s a very smart player and can <a href="https://youtu.be/wbSWJ0I77VE?t=17" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">thread needles</a> and should run a first unit PP at the next level. And if you need Rossi to snipe some goals, <a href="https://youtu.be/wbSWJ0I77VE?t=27" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">he can do that too</a>. I know this is a cliche, but Rossi is fearless and isn’t afraid to get to the <a href="https://youtu.be/wbSWJ0I77VE?t=299" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">dirty areas</a> to score. In general, his competitiveness is something that really stood out to me, he’s feisty in his own zone and on the PK which is something I love to see in center prospects. If you haven’t noticed by now, Rossi is who I’m hoping falls to us at 9th overall. I have him as my 4th ranked prospect in this draft but as we all saw last year with Caufield, some teams are scared by shorter players so there’s a chance he’s available for us.</div></div>

5-9 scares me only because of P-M Bouchard and his injuries. That said Rossi is thick so he should be better able to handle the beatings in the NHL. Maybe he grows 2 inches and we never think about his height again. He is dynamic and was definitely the consensus best pick available. I'm excited to see what he brings.
