You can argue all you want, but you can't argue with what I wrote: the team is not better than it was when the trade was made. If it were, they would be winning, not losing games.

No, I don't think it's Pominville's fault. And no, I don't think he made the team worse. But it's clearly not better.

There's an adjustment period when you add a new player, and it's going to take a good while for the player and team to adjust. Problem is, this is a short season. There's not enough time and practice days for the player to really fit in.

I think the Wild would have been much better off calling up Zucker two weeks ago to add secondary scoring.
