Oilers-Wild (Swap of former Oiler and Wild)

Nick Schultz back to Minnesota for Kyle Brodziak.

Value wise I think both hold the same kind of value. IMO it works for the Oilers because Horcoff and Belanger both will not be back. The 3rd and 4th line center roles are vacant while Nick Schultz hasn't been great for us so far. With Klefbom and Belov likely both starting with the Oilers (and more upgrades back there coming) Schultz might be expendable.

How is it from Minnesota's perspective?

On top of the fact that our center depth is piss poor, we listened to Oiler fans for the last year complain daily about how bad Nick Schultz is and how if Justin Schultz didn't have to cover for Nick's mistakes, Justin would have had much better numbers (including +/-).

Did you really think we were gonna be cool with this deal?

No.

We're keeping Brodziak and Shultz can just go away.

Nice try.

This would be like in grade school when you walk up to a kid and say "Your shoelace is untied!" "Made you look."

Just no.

Well, I mean that might be why I asked how it is from Minnesota's perspective. You know, to find out if you'd be cool with it. Thought that might be obvious but I guess not.

Schultz was great in Minnesota playing a trap system so he'd probably thrive there again.

It shouldn't take a Wild fan to say it to know this is an awful deal for Minnesota, and unfortunately we don't play the trap anymore, so we'll pass on your hot garbage.

Brodziak is overrated. No point giving up something you can find yearly on the UFA market.

Pass.

Brodziak might be overrated somewhat, but he's still far better than Shultz.

Perhaps yes, but that doesn't change the fact there's no reason to give up a player when you can get one of Brodziak's "quality" every UFA year.

True, unless that player is Shultz, then there's reason

I don't want Schultz, but i don't want Brodziak either. He's too slow for Edmonton's style of play.

No. Minnesota can't trade a center away.

This seems pretty open and shut. I'm going to close this before it gets nasty.
