It's going to be so weird seeing Poms in a Wild jersey. Can't wait to see how you guys do with him!

Well Heatley sucks and is a liability at even strength, Butch is not the guy who he was years ago. We are top heavy which is better than nothing but there's a drop off after Cullen/Setoguchi.



Thanks...I guess?
The last two sentences didn't have anything to do with each other. I just meant he'll fit in great on your top line

I would've almost rather given them Granlund just because he seems like PMB without as much speed

Full scouting report.

Quote:
Johan Larsson

History:

2011-12: In his second pro season with Brynas, Larsson won both a Swedish Elitserien championship and a gold medal at the 2012 U20 World Junior Championship. Larsson was Brynas' third-leading scorer during the regular season – scoring 12 goals with 24 assists in 49 games. Averaging 18:27 minutes per game, he was minus-ten with 34 penalty minutes. Brynas finished fourth during the season before its successful playoff run. Larsson scored 2 goals with 8 assists and was plus-six with 16 penalty minutes in 16 playoff games as Brynas captured the league title. He had 6 assists and was plus-three in six games for Sweden at the WJC. Sweden defeated Russia, 1-0, in overtime in the gold medal game.

Talent Analysis:

Known as a hard-working, two-way player with a good eye for the game.

ISS: "Known as a very strong two-way player who has the ability to chip in offensively here and there...Larsson is a great team player who can do everything in every situation ..."

Future:

Larsson is likely to play in North America this season, and could probably stand a year of AHL seasoning. Currently rated a 7.0 B.

Kind of funny to see the reaction of both Wild and Sabres fans. Sabres fans will be pissed if they don't get a 1st and 2nd and Wild fans will be pissed if they give the Sabres the 1st and 2nd.

Does everything pretty much equally well. Wild fans are going to love him.

Pittsburgh may want all the forward, but we want all the captains.

Fair deal if Just Pominville for Hackett+LArsson


But if Minnesota sends any draft picks higher than a 4th rounder, then Buffalo totally wins this trade.


PLEASE PLEASE NO DRAFT PICKS GIVEN UP BY WILD

Full scouting report.

Quote:
Matt Hackett

History:

2010-11: Hackett gradually took over the starting duties for the Wild's AHL affiliate Houston as a 20-year-old and played well in the AHL playoffs as the Aeros reached the Calder Cup finals. In 45 regular season games he was 23-20 with two shutouts and had a 2.37 GAA and .916 save percentage as the Aeros finished second in the West Division. Hackett started all 24 playoff games and was 14-10 with a 2.50 GAA and .903 save percentage.

2011-12: Hackett made his NHL debut with Minnesota in December – replacing an injured Josh Harding two minutes into a game with the Sharks and stopping all 34 shots he faced in a 2-1 Wild win. He got a win in his first NHL start two nights later before being sent back to AHL Houston. He appeared in 12 games with Minnesota during three separate call-ups and was 3-6 with a 2.37 goals against and .922 save percentage. Hackett appeared in a team-high 44 games for Houston and was 20-23 with six losses coming in overtime. He had one shutout for the Aeros and had a 2.38 goals against and .917 save percentage. Houston finished fourth in the West Division; falling to Oklahoma City in four games in a best-of-five first round playoff series. Hackett was 0-2 in two playoff games, being relieved by veteran Mike Brodeur in the second period in both starts; finishing with a 5.93 goals against and .897 save percentage.

Talent Analysis:
Hackett has excellent size and combines that with solid positioning. He has a long way to go, but has shown a willingness to accept coaching and apply it to his on-ice performance.

Future:

Hackett took over the starter's role and has improved his numbers. Played great in backup action for the Wild as well.

Hackett was dealt by the Minnesota Wild to the Buffalo Sabres at the 2013 NHL trade deadline in the deal that sent Jason Pominville to the Wild. Currently ranked a 7.5 C.

Maybe the Wild traded their 1st for a 2nd in the deal?
I am going to be a bit disappointed if Larsson and Hackett is all there is to this. Again, Pominville is a helluva a player.

Pittsburgh has Morrow and Iginla. They're tied with two former captains a piece now.

Buffalo fans, Hackett's a great prospect too.

Us Wild fans are just a little caught-up on Larsson right now, but both prospects are excellent.

And everyone knows captains win cups, just ask LA who had two last year, vs. NJ who only had one

Trust me man, losing Pominville absolutely kills. When he was named captain last year, we thought he was here for good.

That's cause they know nothing about Hackett and Larsson.
