The idea that the Wild would give up the entire future of their organization, the equivalent of 4 first round picks is hilarious.
I doubt they would trade Dumba for Gardiner straight up.
Jake Gardiner is not even in the top 10 of defensmen his age...
To the first bolded, you aren't even close tbh. Think top prospect and a 1st, or Top prospect, mid prospect and a 2nd. We aren't interested in roster players unless under the age of 23. My interest from the wild would be Granlund and a 1st for Kess, even that I feel is generous. A ppg winger still elevating his play for a likely 2nd line center and a late 1st.
To the second bolded, I find that quite surprising. I also get the impression that you have pretty much never actually watched Jake. It's not about his stat line, it's more about the way he can control a game if all goes well. He is a unique player with a much higher value than Dumba.
