You're talking about the pages over here? Keep in mind that this is relatively small site yet. So activity is very minimal apart from a few team forums.
But checking other forums, people are more than happy that Nashville kept Tolvanen, Fabbri and their 1st rounder, considering they got Granny and Simmonds.
If Fenton's goal was simply to reduce payroll he's done great. As far as value: Nino >>> Rask, Coyle >>Ted Drury's kid (probably more like >>>), MiG>>>>Fiala. Three very sucky trades IMO! Three horrible trades for the Wild!
The whole idea behind a Fire Sale is to get Picks or young prospects, not give quality players away for youngish journeymen.
And now the Wild are sliding back to the wimpy, non-physical team that gets out-muscled
The team we had was going no where!! Everyone wants to win but when the guys you have aren't getting it done( unless you consider the first rd of the playoffs getting it done) so its time to move on. When we signed Parise and Suter I thought by now we would have won a cup, but the guys around them never developed to the point where we could count on them game in and out. Granny had a good year, then next he fell, Coyle same thing, Zucker had his best year last year and has done nothing of note t
Story out of Calgary on TSN suggests Flames are angry that a deal that would have brought them Zucker was electronically miffed before the deadline. Will we ever know what player or picks were involved on their end? Good thing it fell through, based on how Zucker has upped his game....
