Would Wild fans do this trade and is this trade fair value?

Well I assumed b4 opening this thread I would either see Burns and/or Lee's name in it. We don't need Lee. And based on how many Lee proposals I've seen this year from Ottawa fans I suspect we don't want him either. We are in good shape behind the blueline. With Burns, Schultz, Zanon, Zid, Stoner and Barker on the club. Not to mention prospects Prosser, Scandella, Cuma, and Falk. Falk will probably be battling for a 6/7 slot next season. We have finally upgraded our forward prospect pool from pathetic to just thin over the past season. No way we trade away an area of weakness for something we don't really need. If their was any trade for a Dman it would be more of a shut down Willie Mitchell type player. Not another puck moving blueliner. So please no more Lee proposals to Minnesota.

Two non-Burns trades in the same day? It's an August miracle!

Wild say no.

They are keeping their forward prospects and don't need more D prospects at that age group.

I'd do it in a heartbeat. Gillies will be lucky if he ever makes the NHL, and if he does, he'll never get more than 10 points a year.

Ottawa wishes that you were The Wild's GM.

hell no from the Sens, Gillies is no more than a slightly better Jim O'Brien. Gillies could be a very good 3rd liner but I'd be shocked if he ever becomes a real offensive threat. The Sens are stocked with bottom 6ers and it would take Gillies a loooong time to push one of Neil, Kelly, Smith, Fisher/Regin/Foligno, etc, to the wayside.

Lee, on the other hand, has at least a 50-50 chance of being a top 4 DMan. At worst, he is a good #5. Lee gets flack because of his draft position, but people fail to realize that he is, at worst, a late first rounder if there was to be a redraft. Lee was put in the unfortunate situation of being drafted by a top team that had no immediate need for him. Lee was drafted as a project to a top team, so it makes sense that its taken him a while to crack the line-up. Spezza didn't make the team for a few years, not because he wasn't a fantastic young player, but because he wasn't ready to play a central role on an elite team. Sure, Lee isn't being called on to play a large role and this team doesn't have the depth it once did, but Lee still has a chance of becoming a very good player and he will at least be a good bottom pairing guy for the next 5-10 years. That I have no doubt of. The Sens will eventually trade him, but it will be once he proves that he can and will stick in the NHL in at least a semi-prominent role (luckily, all Sen D-Men play at least 17mins/game for the most part)

Gillies is the same mold as Shean Donovan

So no

i dont see why the sens do this. Gilles adds nothing we dont already have in the system and we'd need to add defensive depth if we lost lee for a forward.

RIP Kev.
