Revisiting the Leddy - Barker trade

Not being a Wild fan, I don't really know why this occurred.

I do remember the trade like it was yesterday though. Think it was on the opening day of the Winter Olympics back in 2010.

Was surprised to hear the Wild would trade a Minnesota guy

This isn't a troll post. I just wanted to know the facts.

Say it, and you can close the thread

Fletcher traded Leddy along with Kim Johnsson (a pending UFA) in one of 2-3 trades in his first season that tried to do quick fixes. At the time Minnesota had 3 of their 4 prospects be D-men (Cuma, Scandella and Leddy) and an on his way out Tommy Thompson, who was big in drafting Leddy (was Fletcher's first dradt), for some reason threw the U and Lucia under the bus. Honestly in my opinion that was stupider than trading a Minnesota-born player.

And I think we're good regardless if you're trolling or not. Closed.
