And damn, Minny is really pushing for a top seed in the West this year. Do they really think they can hang with Chicago, Anaheim and Vancouver?
It's not a bad trade for Minnesota at all.

Hackett is a good goaltender, but they have Backstrom, Kuemper, Gustafsson and other G prospects. He's expendable, much like Bishop was for us.

Larsson, 1st, 2nd is a lot of assets to give up, but they have drafted well and have a top 5 prospect pool in the league, and are competing for the division now, they can afford to deal prospects for established players. I hope we look at doing the same thing in the next few years as we look to contend.
