If that were the case Im sure they would need to battle it out for the #1 job

That is true, should've added proven wingers.

If most of them turn out, we'd be in great shape.

Vanek - Hodgson - Armia
Ennis - Grigorenko - Girgs/Larsson/Tropp
Foligno - Girgs/Larsson - Girgs/Larsson/Tropp


in 2 years. would be dope.

Fanboy lust for Poms aside, there has to be a high pick with this package...it's a bad move without one. I'd be shocked if there's not.

Hackett was NHL ready yesterday. It's just tough to break a lineup that has Backtrom and Harding.

Make no mistake, Hackett is the real deal.

A beat writer for the Minnesota Wild also says "High" draft picks are also involved in this trade. He was the first to announce that the Wild traded for Pommers as well.

sabresfan3383 called the Pominville trade minutes before anyone else. Too bad for him he's not a "recognized" source so he couldn't post it

Props to him though. I had the Pominville trade thread ready to go

Vogl: It is not clear if there are other parts of the deal. The trade is still pending league approval.

Larsson can play wing, but his future is as a C.
Great work ethic, leadership abilities, strong on the boards, good in the cycle, surgically exact passing. Good shot, good but not great speed. Strong but not very physical. In conclusion a very good all around two way player. Not an energy forward but positions himself and knows what to do with the puck before he gets it. Very stable defensively, but has also shown more and more of offensive quality which he could develop even more. This makes his ceiling hard to predict; anywhere from great shut down 3C to 2C (or even 1C if everything pans out extremely well). NHL mature right away if needed.

Congratulations!

Generally speaking. However, many NHL wingers grew up playing center or otherwise have the skillset to play there in a pinch, and some centers are much better fits down the middle than at wing.


To address the winger matter:
Overall NHL-proven talent is a bigger issue than wingers specifically, looking into the future. Ennis, Girgensons, Larsson, and others can play both center and wing. I'm not worried about it, especially when we're shipping out vets for picks and prospects/players. Things haven't taken shape yet. Hell, we might draft an NHL-ready forward this year, and we have the assets to trade for a young guy in the offseason.

Wild fan here. He played pretty good last year in limited starts from what I remember. The Wild have another goalie in the minors, Darcy Kuemper. They both have been up and down with the team to back up Backstrom this year due to Josh Harding dealing with MS.

Also have another goalie prospect, Johan Gustafsson, who has been playing over in Sweeden. So the Wild had a little log jam at goalie.
