Staste of Hockey has it. It's the in division part of the trade that makes it unlikely to happen.

From a CO perspective, there's also more to lose -- Harding is a backup for the Wild now, contributing little more than depth and hasn't proven much of anything, though he has lots of promise. Wolski is already a solid top 6 contributor right now for the Avs, something that would be difficult to lose, and has top flight potential too.

It's just not happening. I still think Svatos (perhaps + picks) will be the one moved for a goalie if anyone is moved.
