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.
If Val was cheap i think Wild would consider him, but i don't know if we want to get him and push out spot in the top 6/9.

Wings will want a return for him if they are trading him, but they want to keep him since well they don't have much that can replace him.

I think Filp would be a big improvement in our top 6. He can play pretty much anywhere - Koivu's wing (they've played together before), center the 2nd line if need be or 2nd line wing.

Clutter+Scandella+2nd?

Too much, too little?

Too much, plus if he wants the 5 mil we need to see how thats going to work with Brodin's 2nd contract.

I heard he wants over 5 mil per season, and I think he is probably not looking for a 2 or 3-year deal but a longer term. The Wild can't afford to sign with those conditions, so he'd have to like it here so much that he'd take a discount, which isn't likely to happen.

Unless it wouldn't cost us too much, I don't know how I would feel about Gabby coming back... It would be like getting back together with your ex after she had dated some other dude... Just weird... Plus he's still a lazy, floating putz.

I've always liked Filppula. I would not be against him at all if it were around the 5mil mark. He's worth that. I don't know about too much more though. He's not worth 6. I don't see any problem giving him a 4-5 year contract. He's in the right age range, has the right skill set, works his butt off. He would fit in quite well here, imo. Be a great upgrade over Cullen.

Too bad it was about as minor a trade as you can get.

Yeah, we could play him at Koivu's wing. His only downside really is his size and his shot. Aside from those, he's got great hands, some fancy moves, great work ethic and brilliant vision.

Likes to pass. Like, a lot. But that's not necessarily a bad thing... Hmm.

Zucker - Filppula - Setoguchi

I'd love it if we could get Filppula, I've been a huge fan of his for years, but I really don't see Detroit trading him. It just seems unlikely to me that they'd deal an important UFA to be at the deadline with the standings being as tight as they are. Just not the way that organisation works imo.

Of course if he hits free agency we could try our hardest to sign him but if it comes to that it's pretty much a crapshoot who gets him. We're not in a position to overpay for anyone which makes it even more tricky for us.

I think that was a masterful troll by Russo.

PA is ribbing him the whole show about how he breaks more news. Just as Russo leaves the show he says, "just got a text message, trade in the works, involves a defensemen" and leads PA on.

Got me going as well.

Well played Mr. Russo.

Why do the NYR offer such huge ass contracts then ship the guy off later? Granted it's UFA, but not every sucker is going to take an over the hill player with a huge contract to save the Rangers' ass everyday.

Valle's a much better winger than a center. He's also a bit soft for my taste, but works well with Koivu as long as the 3rd party on the line is willing to shoot. However, in the long term I don't see him meshing well with Granlund and Zucker/Seto, especially MiG and Zucker. That line would have two fast players, a shooter and two playmakers, but it would be too small and soft. I'd rather have Valle playing 1st line RW in that case.

Wild are gonna get Vanek from Buffalo, in exchange for Clutterbuck & Hackett, plus 2nd rounder.





(if this happened the Gopher/Wild fans would literally all pee their pants.)

Always been a Filppula fan but with Cullen playing as good as he is and Granlund being the future it makes no sense to get him.

Feels like filppula is past he's prime
Filppula is a player that kind off breeds from quality
The better players he plays with the better results he gets
Now when the detroit team is starting to fade away slowly so is he

I wouldnt touch him unless he's for free and cheap and he's probably neither
Injuries are starting pile up too he's not been well this season , he got injured in the FEL league and it's not healed 100%
