To keep the UND theme going though and I've mentioned this before, I'd love the Wild to get Stafford to play alongside his buddy Parise. His cap hit isn't all that terrible and it would give Coyle a chance to continue to develop in the AHL as it's obvious his offensive game isn't quite NHL ready yet. His $4 million cap hit though means either Heatley or Bouchard is going the other way, along with a pick or prospect to even the value out.
I like Stafford but holy ****, I didn't realize how poorly he's played this year. Still, I think you make a good point about bringing him on board to give Coyle more time to develop. I don't think they'd do Heatley for him (don't they have cap issues going forward?), and Bouchard has close to no value. So I really don't know what type of trade would make sense with them for him (unless they're scrambling to trade him).
