If Coyle and Phillips both turn into legit (read: not Seto-caliber) top-6 forwards, then the Wild might have an edge. But Phillips looks more like a 3rd liner, I highly doubt Coyle is a prolific scorer, and Seto is Seto, streaky, inconsistent, and one-dimensional.

I always find it funny that Wild fans include the 28th overall as part of the deal, but forget that we got 37th overall back with Burns. If we'd kept the pick, we would clearly win the deal easily because it's more like Coyle+Seto for Burns. It's just that pissed away the pick, which was a completely inconsequential move when evaluating this trade, that it doesn't look as good as it was.
