Coyle is the prospect you have to give up to get a talented guy like Despres, but the Wild can afford it with the depth they have in young forwards. Scandella, while decent, is inconsistent and looks to be at best a #3-4 defenseman.

Despres gives a mix of upside and safety in a prospect that is extremely valuable.
