And he couldn't dictate where he wanted to go like Iginla (except naming eight teams he could not be traded to). These are completely different situations and some posters don't seem to get that.

Pominville is a UFA in 2015?

This. I think everyone is still waiting for the other shoe to drop before making too many judgements about the value.

Yeah Pominville is by no means a rental and cannot be compared in anyway to Iginla deal. I could see 2nd coming the otherway but 1st and 2nd is one 1st pick too much.

2014. But if you know Pominville he likely re-ups in Minnesota.

Good trade for the Wild. JP is exactly what they needed.

Surprised to see no first rounder, but the prospects Buffalo gets are good.

Yes. Pommers is a class act, wouldn't surprise me to see him re-up in Minny.

He's also the kind of players that will totally help this team from top to bottom. Really like the player.

Not yet. Russo reporting "high drafts" may be involved though. Can't believe details haven't been reported yet.

The wild now have 3 of the best 2 way forwards in the game and if they want they can ice them as a top line.

Parise-Koivu-Poms

That would be up there for best top lines in the league.

This trade pretty much confirms GMCF and the Wild are indeed in win now mode I think.

If the picks are coming back as rumored, as much as I didn't want this to ever happen and as sad as I am right now to see Pommer go, that's a good return for him along with Larsson and Hackett.

Sucks it had to come down to this. I really thought of all our players Pominville would never play for any other team but it just didn't work that way and wasn't meant to be. Sad day in Buffalo. But this was a move that just had to happen. It was time. Tough pill to swallow and bittersweet as anything ever could be.
