Ideally, even if we tank, if Fletcher can have another great draft (which we might considering we could be drafting in the top-5), and then turns Backstrom + 2 of Cullen/Bouchard/Lats/Clutterbuck (yes Clutterbuck) into an over-paid, but legit top-6 winger, the Wild could look very attractive. Hell, I would even toss in a guy like Coyle if it would bring back a guy like, say, Nash.

X - Koivu - Heatley
Nash - Granlund - Setoguchi
Lats/Clutter/Bulmer-Brodziak-Cullen

Y - Gilbert
Scandella-Spurgeon

When you call Suter and Parise, and they look at that potential line-up, plus all the prospects pushing the club, yeah, that would be hard to turn down.

Edit - I completely realize that expecting getting Nash to get Parise to get Suter is mad scientist crazy, but Jedi GMs go big or go home. If Fletcher traded for Nash at the draft, man that would be a big statement, even if Nash is on the 2nd half of his career.
