How has Gill been playing lately?

I wouldn't mind getting more depth to defense and I could imagine we could play Gill in the 3rd pair.

Is Gill a Stoner clone? Not really sure to be honest just asking.

He's big... And that's about all I can say for him. Seems like all that trade would accomplish is just switching out the popcorn vendor.

We'll start with PMB for Gill straight up.

PMB is 7th in TOI for the Wild 8th in TOI/G. But only has 5 pts in that time.

Gill is the 7th D-man right now and with Nashville calling up Victor Bartley he's been pushed out.

PMB is a UFA next yr and Gill has one more yr left at 2 million.

As a Preds fan, part of me thinks the Wild have to throw in a mid pick because of PMB's history of concussions and small size. But I'm talking LOW mid pick like a 4th.

Opinion?

That's a good comparison. Imagine a bigger, older, slower, worse version of Clayton Stoner.

Hasn't played much because kids have pushed him down the depth chart. Currently he's being used as a PK specialist. Big slow but has the reach of your average crane, not the bird but the big mechanical thing.

Yikes. Does PMB really have that low value?

Maybe a straight up swap, but I am not a fan of Gill's game. I liked him before his second to last injury and it just seems to me that he has taken quite a few steps back over the course of the last two.

/shrug

If we are moving PMB for a d-man, I don't want to bring one in that has any years left on their contract. 1 for 1 UFA swap would be ideal.

Butch has five points in 20 games. Easily the worst year of his career, coming off two major concussions. He probably has little to no trade value unless he cracks the lineup and starts playing well.

agreed. I think Fletcher see's it the same way. I don't see PMB being swapped for anyone in the league that could help this defense on an expiring contract, that said GM doesn't want or need any longer.... and that has equally low value of PMB because Fletcher isn't giving up any picks.

It's going to be a late pick (6th or 7th) or nothing. IMO ... anything better than that, i'll be shocked. To clear the roster spot is good enough for me.

I still say, if he's going to be dumped, package him with a lower pick to try and move up a round. Bouchard + 4th for a 3rd or something along those lines.

Stafford might be on the block.

I'd really like to see him on this team. Something like Scandella + PMB + 3rd for Stafford + 6th?

When talking about U.S.S Hall Gill, he's an effective player in front of the net and brings leadership. But on the other hand, fast players eat him up alive. The $2 million contract is a bit too much for what he is right now, but if this is the best PMB can play after all those injuries, I'd do the switch.

No thanks. Our D is lacking a little bit of veteran leadership, but we don't need a skater slower than Rupp right now. I say see what the damage would be for Stafford and if PMB is part of it, sweet. If not, shop him to move up a round with a team willing to take the risk.

I wish we had some kind of inclination as to what trade options the Wild are looking into.

What would you guys ideally like to see?

I guess we're set d now. Not really what I was thinking we would do, but it works for minimal cost. We have too many, so I would definitely assume we would move at least one roster d by 4/3. Our d has been pretty good overall this year, so this is not the greatest concern right now.

We still need 1 good scoring winger. Coyle's been fine, but not good enough for top line duty, imo. It's not a knock on him, he's just not quite ready yet. I do like him overall though. I'ld rather he could grow on the third line myself.

I really wish our top line could be a little more dynamic. It's better with Coyle than Heatley, but the third player needs to be someone who Parise and Koivu can depend on. A real threat of sorts. Now, it's mostly Parise and Koivu trying to make it work while training the new guy, who's still adapting the the NHL, only after doing alright in the AHL.

I'm wondering what everyone else would do. The trade deadline's coming up so it's the perfect time to speculate

Do the Wild bring in someone significant, or do we just make the best with what we have? What WOULD be best for the team? Ideally of course.

Depending on the price, I would like us to try and pick up a top line winger.

The right wingers I would be very curious about would be:

1. Pominville

2. Purcell

3. Eberle

4. Simmonds

Again, it would all depend on the cost, but all these teams could possibly be convinced to part ways with a winger of this caliber in return for prospects, picks and/or roster players that we have extra of, such as d. Especially the Flyers and the Lightning don't have trouble scoring, but they do defending.

Don't tease me with thoughts of Simmonds. I just can't imagine the Flyers trading him when he is on a very favorable contract for the next few years.

But since we are speculating i would give picks and some young D not named Brodin or Dumba for Simmonds. Simmonds is young and his contract doesn't break the bank and is tailor made for our top line and PP plus he will beat up players like Corey Perry.

I don't however think the Wild do anything big such as that move. They stand relatively pat and wait til the off season to see what is available, I personally think there will be a few surprises available because of the buyout clause teams can use.

Clutterbuck and Scandella+? Dunno if that would assess their needs enough. Probably would have to overpay anyway so that's pretty much null.

Throw in a Falk or Prosser with that. Do want to call them or do you want me to do it?

Hehe, maybe if we all call we'll at least get a good laugh from them

Simmonds would be ideal, but I do agree that the chance of anything regarding him happens... or anyone really... but who knows. It's fun to speculate.

Scandella + Falk + Clutterbuck + 2nd. Or instead of Clutterbuck they could maybe get Phillips. I know they're up there with their cap numbers.

Ah well... It's a dream

Apparently Wings aren't even close to signing Filppula.

The Red Wings are optimistic they can find common ground with Brunner, but they aren't anywhere close to signing Filppula, who is believed to seeking a contract worth more than $5 million a season.

How much would we have to give for him? He's a RFA next season.

As he can play both center and wing, I think he would be a good fit here.
