Guys that don't count; Coyle, Phillips, Larsson, Brodin, Granlund, Bulmer, and Zucker. Not to mention, we're going to have to replace many of those going out with those coming in because that's a majority of our AHL team along with a few our NHL teams.
I agree that is odd, but I judging value off of other trades isn't always right. Commodore was traded for conditional 2013 7th rounder, so... I don't know.
Commodore is also a shell of what he was. Scott at least is an enforcer. Everyone knew Zanon is a warrior and even though we had outlived his usefulness, he was a tough player that just didn't fit in with the organization.
The wild need to stop making bad decisions. Now they will miss the playoffs.
The Blueline needed to get thrown in a blender big time. The Wild did that. Will it make the team better? Who knows. The point is they needed to change things up and get rid of aging vets who werent meshing with Yeo's system and they did that.
Does anyone really believe, in the depths of their hearts, that this team, as it has been playing the last two months, was a playoff team?
We will see where we go starting Tuesday with the HUGE game we have against the Kings. Potential 4 point game.
