Anyway...I'm VERY pleased with the deal, and even though I've argued against trading him in recent weeks, this is the type of offer that really couldn't be refused.
You won't find a single person who really thinks the Wild didn't pay well over the odds.

Different situations to other players (Iginla/Jagr/Roy/etc.) but the market just didn't seem to be right. Pominville is a nice complimentary player (who I will root for this year) but he's no superstar or game changer.

I would have expected this type of return for TV, but not Pominville. Darcy has done it again.

I think this thread needs to stay "Stickied"

We have an interesting offseason to speculate about, starting with Couturier/Vanek type trades!!
