MIN and ATL talking swap

Eklund: *The Wild are talking the the Caps about a top six forwards as well and the Thrashers about a D-man.*

Curious to know what D-man they're talking about - likely one of the usual suspects (Oduya, Hainsey, Sopel, Bogo). NOT Toby or Buff.

Question would be what ATL wants back (and depending on that what they'd have to add)... I was tossing around PM Bouchard or Latendresse as ATL needs a top RW.

Thoughts? What would they need to add for Bouchard or Latendresse?

I want Brunnette back, he should've been a career Thrasher.

An Oduya-for-Brunnette swap would work for me.

Alas, it's Eklund.

True...but wouldn't we want a longer commitment than what Brunette could provide? He's UFA after this year yet Oduya has another year to go. Don't see the overall value there.

I'd want something that's a more strategic (read: long-term) move, e.g. PMB or Latendresse. I'm thinking we could offer Oduya, Machacek and perhaps a 2nd for PMB..... or Oduya + 1st for PMB.

Nope....same value-wise as Brunette - UFA after this year.

Younger, yes - hoping he'd try to sing at least a multi-year deal.

Why would the Wild need a defenseman? We just got Zidlicky back and we're dressing seven a game because we don't have enough forwards with Koivu out. Defenseman are the one asset we have plenty of.

Uh...no thanks. We're doing fine for defensemen.

The Wild right now are dressing 7 D..i don't think we need another one. Probably just another silly Eklund rumor. Also i don't see us trading Lats or Bouchard because both are apart of our core for the next 5+ seasons and they both have low value due to injuries.

call me crazy but i think the implication (with the wild/caps bit at the beginning) was that we'd move a D or two to them for a top six forward and get a D back for something else from ATL.

please note that I in no way believe this to be happening--i'm merely trying to sort out the reasoning behind the rumour.

I guess this means the Wild and Thrash are not going to be trading with each other.

Tonight, Fletcher said he won't trade any top 6 forwards so...

I can see Kobasew being traded somewhere though.

regardless of the koivu injury, why start messing with the our team? with the way we have been playing, i'd seriously consider not messing with team chemistry.

Although they don't get much respect on hfboards, the Wild blueline is skilled, deep, and balanced.

When this team could really use a 1st line forward, I just don't see us wasting assets filling a non-existent hole.

obviously we have a spare d-man but the wild wouldn't exactly be the team that wants it. even eklund has to see this doesn't make sense.

Eklund rumors hardly ever make sense.

Really our trading piece, that I could see being moved, would be Kobasew, Barker, (These are possible however unlikely) Miettinen, Spurgeon, draft picks.

What we would want in return is a top 6 player. We don't need defensemen. Us trading what I had previously mentioned for a top 6 forward is highly unlikely.

Do you notice he never puts any names to his rumours. He just sucks you guys in by teasing you a bit. I hate Eklund and I stopped going to his site about a year ago. I admit I used to go visit his site daily. But he really doesn't give out any info at all. He just mentions two teams are talking, one looking for a dman and one looking for a top 6 and it sucks you in cause you're think ohh who could that be. Until he starts putting some names to his rumours or has some legitmacy to what he says it's all B.S These Eklund threads need to be stopped.

I'm curious to see what conversation Eklund can make up between the two GM's also

All kidding aside I could see a swap happening. Atlanta seems to be trying to get some trades done.

Unfortunately that's not going to happen. So you have two choices:

A: Ignore all threads with the prefix "Eklund"
B: Participate in the thread, speculating like everyone else who could be involved.

Also a note to everyone. Eklund is a poster here, so that means the rules cover him just like they do you and I. Which means, no name calling or personal type shots against him are allowed.
