Minnesota - Florida
 
Pierre-Marc Bouchard to Florida for Mike Santorelli

Florida do this cause they get closer to the cap floor and get a 2/3 line center who is a UFA after this season

Minnesota do this as they get more cap room and get a guy who can fight for a place in the team and if not can chuck him in the minors

I don't see the upside for Minnesota. Bouchard still seems to fill a role in their top-6. On the other hand, Santorelli cleared waivers not too long ago, giving us a bit of an indication of his value. I would not expect Bouchard's to be too close to that.

North Metro Peewees 07-27-2012 11:26 AM

The Wild don't need to clear salary since they have several large expiring contracts after next season (PMB, Backstrom, Cullen) to the tune of about $14m. Besides until the Wild are sure the next wave of prospects is ready to help moving PMB makes the Parise acquisition less of an impact.

The Wild expect to be a playoff team next season but dealing a top six forward and hoping Coyle, Larsson, Zucker are ready now would be a huge mistake.

Would a draft pick been better in the proposal as well ? And what's the valued Cullen ?

I'd think they would just prefer to keep PMB. No pressing reason not to, really.

Has an NTC and doesn't want to move, apparently.

how about Granlund for Bjugstad, yes i'm a wild fan, and i think Wild made a huge mistake passing on Bjugstad

he has a NTC and he is quite big here with charity, just donated a million to build a room for sick kids to take their minds off being sick. i think it would be a big PR to move him. plus he would be a solid vet to guide the younger guys.

he gets too much hate from Wild fans because he isn't great and cant carry a team.

I think that would be a mistake for both teams, I hate to say this... but I think Granlund is worth more in value than Bjugstad is anyways. Surprising you say that.

I say yes to the OP's post.. I think Florida might have been able to get away with something like this a couple of years ago, but Santorellis value has really fallen. The value isn't fair and I can understand that as a Panthers fan.

I'm guessing you're also a Gophers fan too, eh? That's a horrible trade.

Florida says yes and runs away screaming "no backsies!!" :laugh:

If we trade Bouchard, I doubt we'll just give him away.

This opinion is representative solely of its author and not necessarily that of the Wild fanbase as a whole.

As far as the proposal, no. Rather depend on a healthy Bouchard and hope for the best than take on another bottom 6 player.

You guys can pretty much just have Santorelli. It's kind of you to offer something for him.

Despite what NHL.com says, PMB is not and has never been a Center in the NHL. The only time he sees a faceoff is when Koivu or Cullen get kicked out.

A Wild fan didn't come up with the OP.

The offer is open to all parties, lol.

ShootIt 07-27-2012 02:05 PM

Yes! We can have an all injured line of PMB-Mueller-Upshall. Guaranteed to miss 82+ games combined a season.

But seriously, yes.

That's not what he meant.

Wild hang up the phone immediately (and PMB is not, nor has he ever been a center).

Northland Wild Man 07-27-2012 07:06 PM

No thanks

Bjugstad has the size and skill of a star forward, but I really think Granlund has what it takes to be a franchise type guy

mnhowitzer 07-27-2012 11:09 PM

Good god no! Love Bjugstad but good grief.

Isn't PMB a top 6 forward? How is Mike Santorelli worth a top 6 forward?
