The Wild have alternatives both in terms of buyouts (Gilbert), on the trade market (Clutterbuck, Konopka), and in the goaltending market (too many to name) to justify such a deal, IMO.

Now, if we want to consider dealing them Vanek, I think Dumba is very much on the table. But not with Miller as the centerpiece.
I don't know why people think one year of Vanek is going to land you an elite prospect!!


(Just kidding.....I've read your posts this past year and you have a good hockey mind....I agree with most of your opinions)
