For the Wild, the trades in the early years didn't really do much for the long-term state of the franchise, so the most important trades as I see it were:

Heatley for Havlat.

Havlat didn't fit with the Wild and Heatley has been a perfect fit.

Cam Barker for Kim Johnsson and Nick Leddy.

Pre-concussion, Johnsson was a very good NHL top-4 Dman, and even if Leddy has struggled at points with the Hawks, those two should have brought in a lot more than Cam...turd sandwich Barker.

When this trade went down, I was working in Chicago at the time, and my Hawks-fan co-worker who got the news first just started laughing at me. Terrible feeling.
