yeah, kinda why i inquired, i figured there could be some differing opinions regarding the plan with him going forward. i didnt go blindly into this like many 'pipe dream' scenarios you see around the boards. Could almost be a 'perfect storm' situation with the Wild (at least in acquring him)

-already have $46m tied up for next year (including Burns)
-have 5 NHL ready D-men signed (maybe looking to add a UFA?)
-opens capspace for UFA/RFA's
-getting 2 cheaper, NHL ready/upside RFA's in return, helps sooner than later
