I see someone already did a Wild one, but I strongly disagree on quite a few points so here's my version
Johan Larsson - 3rd line center
Nick Palmieri - Bottom six forward
David McIntyre - Bottom six forward
Jason Zucker - skill/speed winger
Steven Kampfer - Right defense
Tyler Cuma - Left defense
a) Top-4 defenseman
b) Pure sniping forward
a) Bottom pairing/depth defensemen
b) Bottom 6 forwards
-Team is unlikely to be involved in trades-
a) Cal Clutterbuck - No longer untouchable, but would be part of a package for a better player, not as a standalone in a trade
b) Bottom pairing defensemen
c) Bottom six forwards
Mikael Granlund - C/W - This year
Playmaking forward extraordinaire. Has been referred to as the best player outside the NHL.
Jonas Brodin - D - This year/next year
Defenseman with fantastic skating. "Mistake-free" and a safe defenseman who makes a great first pass. There's hope for him to develop his offensive game. Projects as an elite #2, or possibly #1 defenseman down the road.
Mathew Dumba - D - 1-3 years
Big hitting, aggressive defenseman. Drafted 7th overall this year.
Matt Hackett - G - 1-2 years
Organization's goaltender of the future. Set an NHL rookie record last year with the longest shutout streak to begin a player's career.
I'll cut off there although the next 5 prospects would each be top 5 or even top 3 in most teams prospect pools.
a) Forward depth - both top 6 and bottom 6
b) Prospect pool
c) Bottom pairing defensive depth
a) Top-4 defense
b) Top-4 defensive depth
c) Experience (especially on the blueline)
All Wild picks except 3rd round. SJS 3rd round. NJD 3rd round. NYR 7th round
All Wild picks
Just under the cap this year. Next year $14MM comes off the books (replacement cost around $7MM) and another $8.5MM the following year (replacement cost around $4MM).
Should contend for the Northwest Division but likely will fall short. Expect a 4-6 finish in the West.
