Would Phillips for Määttä be a realistic swap? I feel there won't be room for Phillips in our top 6 for years so he might be a good asset to trade for a prospect that better suits Wild's needs. He's a first rounder so he should have some value too. Määttä can be replaced with any similar type of prospect who projects as a top 4 defenseman, he's just more of a known commodity to me and most Finns here I'd assume.
