Jokinen//Koivu//Ruutu. No idea what it would take, but it's fun to speculate
Minnesota seems to be in no position to be trading their top center. Aside from Koivu, it looks like there's absolutely nobody for them to put in that spot unless Granlund is that good already.

So if we were to hypothetically be trading for Koivu, we'd need to send back a first or second liner (preferably a center in their case, unless Granlund is amazing enough to put between Parise and Heatley right away), or a defenseman to begin with.

Because I have no idea how well Granlund will adapt to the NHL, especially in a shortened season, I think it's a non-starter.
