If Heatley won´t get loaded anywhere Nino will be on the 4th...

I'd do:

Parise-Koivu-Nino
Moulson-Granlund-Pominville

But Nino is going to find himself in the bottom 6 because Coyle needs his top 6 spot, let's just hope it's not the 4th line.

Parise - Granlund - Pominville
Moulson - Koivu - Coyle
Cooke - Haula - Nino
Heatley - Brodziak - Fontaine

I would tweak it to this. Heatley and Brodziak have had some chemistry in the past, same with Brodziak and Fontaine. They'd make a decent 4th line. Cooke and Nino look great together, and Haula's got the speed and vision to stay active with them. The 2nd line has big bodies with strong possession skills, playmaking, and goal scoring, and the 1st line is the one we've all come to love.
When you want toughness, keep the top two lines the same and go with a bottom six of:

Cooke/Heatley - Brodziak/Haula - Nino
Heatley/Cooke - McCormick - Fontaine

In any case, I don't think any of us can even purport to know what the lines should actually look like. There is going to be a feeling out period in which all the lines get juggled around, and hopefully it's felt out by playoffs. That's the danger with trade deadline acquisitions: got to find chemistry quickly while fitting them into a role they can succeed in. Doesn't always work.

Coyle is not a better center than either Haula or Brodziak and should not displace them. He should be on wing on a lower line than Nino.

I am absolutely against any line changes that put Parise back on Koivu's wing. Need to keep Parise-Granlund-Pominville together.

I agree. Just trying to blend what I would do with what I think the coaches would do. Trying to find some common ground.

Parise - Granlund - Pominville
Moulson - Koivu - Neiderreiter
Cooke - Brodziak - Coyle
Heatley - Haula - Fontaine

In actuality, Nino and Coyle will probably get flipped, but even so, it wouldn't be that big of a deal.

Even Yeo admitted that even though he sees Coyle's future at center, he said he likely has to develop at wing first. I don't think Yeo will move Coyle back to center down the stretch run here.

I like this move a lot. If the Wild can re-sign Moulson, sign Vanek and "Niskanen" in the FA, we have a contender here! Wild in 14-15:

Parise-Granlund-Pominville
Vanek-Koivu-Nino
Moulson-Haula-Coyle
Cooke-Brodziak-Fontaine

Suter-Brodin
Scandella-"Niskanen"
Ballard-Spurgeon

Kuemper
Bäckström
(assuming Harding isn't healthy)

Haven't seen the Wild be this good ever..

I like this. Wouldn't mind seeing Brodz/Haula flipped but it isn't that big of a deal.

Sick deal for Minny. Shame for them that Heatley is rubbish now. Imagine Moulson, Heatley, Parise, Pominville as your top 4 wingers.

So basically we have to re-sign him, otherwise the price would be way too steep right?

If Yeo had half a brain he'd have Parise, Pominville, Moulson, Niederreiter...but knowing Yeo the 4th winger will be Coyle.

Steep why? You get a rental scorer for two picks...one of which is 2 years in the future.

The Habs gave a 2nd this year and a prospect.

I have to think they need to improve that third line in terms of scoring.

If I look at 5v5 goals per game for this season then project out over 20 games:

Parise-Granlund-Pominville = 10.9
Heatley-Koivu-Coyle = 7.7
Cooke-Brodziak-Nino = 7.1
Veilleux-Haula-Mitchell = 7.0

If you swap in the new guys:

Parise-Granlund-Pominville = 10.9
Moulson-Koivu-Nino = 9.7
Heatley-Coyle-Fontaine = 8.7
Cooke-Brodziak-Haula = 5.6

I kind of like those lines. Adds more punch.

Not really. A 2nd is fine for playoff rental and we have plenty of time to re-coup the 2016 2nd. It's not imperative, but if he performs well and likes it here, I'd be open to it.

No. One 2nd was for Moulson. One 2nd was for clearing Mitchell off our books.

Fair price, we got the best piece and got rid of a ****** contract

I think we paid a bit too much. More than acceptable if he re-signs.

No, getting rid of Mitchell cost us another second. It's in 2016, plenty of time to get back in the second round if we want.
