Some people just don't understand the idea that our 5th best prospect..Johan Larsson was behind Granlund, Coyle, Zucker. That is 3 forwards right there..only 12 can play on a team at a time. All of those 4 were considered to be top with maybe Larsson top 9.

Either way that means you need 9 top 9 forward spots open for Larsson to EVER play in Minnesota.

Koivu, Parise, Setoguchi, Granlund, Coyle, Zucker, Clutterbuck, Brodziak, Cullen, Heatley, Bouchard.

Even with assuming both Bouchard/Heatley are gone next year that is still when exactly was Larsson going to fit into our forward mix??

Yeah we moved a bright young player who will be a good NHL'er. But for god sakes we still have 3 blue chip forward prospects and maybe 1-2 more in Lucia, Phillips, Bussieries, Haula, Graovac etc.

They can't all play here. So you use them as currency to get you the players you need immediately for your playoff run. On top of that Pominville is no rental. He is signed for next season and probably will ink long term.

We traded a good prospect. Big deal. We have a truckload of them still..even without Larsson were as good as anyone in that department save Florida or Ottawa maybe.
