So, let me get this straight, the Wild "need" promising young Dmen and we are going to get that by trading a promising young Dman named Scandella?

I have no idea where the "trade Scandella" faction of Wild fans came from. I think it was a combination of looking for holdover scapegoat for last year (Schultz, Zanon, Zidlicky were gone, Gilbert too new, Spurgeon too impressive, and Stoner/Falk too insignficant, so Scandella it was) and because some had it in their minds that Scandella would instantly fill the hole left by Burns.

But Scandella has generally played well for the Wild and he's going to be an awesome Dman for them for a long while.

If you want another Dman, fine, something like Demers+ for Clutterbuck+ makes sense because the Wild probably aren't going to be able to afford Clutterbuck's raise next summer.
