The real reason for the Burns/Havlat trade...

Technically speaking, Minnesota has completed three trades with San Jose in about a year. The first was last year when we traded a 5th for Brad Staubitz. That 5th turned into Freddie Hamilton, one of San Jose's top prospects.

Feeling sorry for this terrible and lopsided trade, San Jose decided to let Minnesota win one trade and then even it out with Heatley for Havlat.

So there's the real reason for the trade...

I guess I should have a after this because my sarcasm comes off terrible on the Internet.

I guess now we should look at Chicago and Boston as they owe us!

Yeah because they have a better vantage point to analyze his play than we do. They've obviously watched him more than we have.

To be fair, they might have. I think most Wild fans close their eyes every time Barker touches the puck.

Not to mention, he will play with the Oilers.


Yes, I know it was a sarcastic post.

I know the Sharks might have the worst prospect pool in the NHL but it's tough to say Freddie Hamilton is one of their top prospects.

Did enjoy the thought regardless.

i don't know anything about the sharks so i was willing to let that one slide, but it didn't sound right. Methinks someone just hates Staubitz.

I think he was saying it tongue in cheek. At least, that's how I took it.

Staubitz isn't bad. He's making around league minimum and plays his role fairly well. I don't remember ever really cursing him out for something he did.

I actually think Edmonton's a good opportunity for him, and wouldn't be surprised to see him enjoy success offensively. Ryan Whitney looked his best last year prior compared to his previous stops, and is a somewhat similar build. However, Marc-Andre Bergeron is a better PP specialist than Barker, and also may actually be more useful everywhere else.

Also, consider the record between these two teams. When facing the Wild last year, only Edmonton could make Barker look like a freaking rockstar. Cripes, we should have kept BP just for those games alone. The Oilers could have made Pouliot look like a real #4 overall pick!

I think even Barker closes his eyes every time he touches the puck.

Outside some dumb penaltys i didnt see him doing any big mistakes. As expected from a 4 liner, plays with a lot of heart and grit, but i honestly dont see him with the wild in the next season.

his dumb penalties were often a result of him trying to get someone to fight when we were lifeless and behind in a game. I'm going to go ahead and say I'd rather see those kind of penalties from a guy like Staubitz than watch Mikko get called for hooking or tripping once a game.

I'm still a little surprised we didn't go after Konopka (he adds an excellent faceoff percentage to his grittiness and character) but since we didn't i took that as a sign we were either A) using Staubitz or B) calling up Kassian.

I remember a few ones that didnt have anything to do with fight relative. But i Agree with you, Konopka would be a great aquisition.

I don't really believe we felt we needed to 'even' up the Burns / Setoguchi trade by dealing Havlat for Heatley. As for Staubitz, I am fine with the job he does. He isn't a heavyweight killer, but he answered the bell when needed.
