Injury problems? Yeah.

Even if you're a Vanny fan, there still no need to claim that I'm crazy and get personal like that.

We have Parise, Koivu, Heatley, Setoguchi, Bouchard, Cullen, Granlund, Coyle and Zucker, all ready to play in our top-6 right now. We also have Brodziak, Clutterbuck, Mitchell, Powe, Konopka, Veilleux, Dowell, Kassian, McIntyre, Bulmer, Palmieri and perhaps Larsson ready to play in our bottom-6.

Our depth is on a different planet compared to last year, and not a single one of those players would look out of place on an NHL roster. Our line-up on forward would probably look like this:

Parise-Koivu-Heatley
Cullen-Granlund-Setoguchi
Bouchard-Brodziak-Clutterbuck
Mitchell-Konopka-Powe
Veilleux/Dowell

So yeah, we're stacked on offense.
Try being a fan of Edmonton... Look at what injuries have done to our roster over the last few years.

Even without a top C Minni finished higher in the standings.

And as for the trade, I would keep Gardiner over Brodin. Look what Hall did to him
