SNIPER to Minny

I don't know if Minnesota will be making any trades like this in the near future but from what I've seen so far it looks like the Wild have too many playmakers/setup guys and could use more of a pure shooter/goal scorer.

Pretty much nobody is offlimits save for Koivu, Parise, Suter, Brodin and probably Granlund but I think even those young rookies could be had for the right price.

Any teams out there in need of another setup guy or two? We sure have a lot of passers

Whatever happened to that guy Heatley, he used to be a classic sniper.

Brian Gionta could be a good fit in Minnesota. What would you give up for him?

Erik Cole is 34 and isn't an upgrade over anyone in the top 6.

Absolutely untrue. Have you seen either player play in the last couple years?

I would love for the Wild to somehow get Vanek, but I'm positive the asking price would be too much.

I'm sure Buffalo would be asking for Coyle+top-6 forward++. Don't want to trade Coyle, but I guess maybe Setoguchi+Coyle+Dumba?

Sadly the players Minnesota would have available for a trade are the exact players they would want via trade, but they are woefully underperforming. So you'd have to give up huge prospect/pick packages, which would just undo all the work Fletcher has done the last few years.

Setoguchi might get moved for another tweener type or meh prospect and/or mid-pick...PMB will probably play out his deal...Heatley will probably be bought out.

I doubt Heatley gets bought out. Isn't he UFA soon? He'll take a hefty pay cut.

Gionta + 3rd in 2013 for Stoner, Clutterbuck and a 2nd in 2013? I am a little unsure about the salary movement in regards to Minnesota, though. A healthy Gionta can get 25-30 goals with the average line mates he had in Montreal. Put him with some of the playmakers in Minny and he should do well.

I am not really happy with the idea of trading Gionta, but we need the size and grit enough to consider this.
