A post was made on the Edmonton board asking who "won" the trade. I'm wondering what other Wild fans think. Personally, I think Minnesota did well. I didn't really follow the Wild until 2010 so I had no deep attachment to Schultz. When he was traded, I was excited for a PMD. What do you all think? Did the Wild win this trade?
Happy with the trade. Gilbert is much better at moving the puck and shooting as well and has been more physical and aggressive in his end than Schultz ever was. Honestly there's really no downside of this trade for me.
i thought Gilbert looked like hot garbage in Eddy...was never a fan. appreciated Schultz here so wasn't very optimistic even though i realized why we made the trade (more movement on the blueline). Pleasantly surprised after gilbert had a few games to settle in. AFAIK it could be win-win, but i definitely feel like we won.
