Kuba or Mitchell

if we trade one of these defenseman who would you rather trade? personally Id like to keep them both but in a lot of trade ideas people are always wanting one of those two as opposed to Zyuzin(go figure) who I would love to get rid of.

If I HAD to get rid of one I would trade Kuba, he logs big minutes and moves the puck well but I think Mitchell is more consistant and brings some real grittiness and solid defense to the team that will make him a true leader along with Walz. Keep Mitchell because of his intangibles because their talent is too similar, not necessarily similar skillset but similar in overall talent

If it comes down to trading one of them (and I think it will), I'm pretty sure it will be Mitchell. He didn't sound too thrilled with all these one-year contracts he's been signing the last three years. I don't think he looks forward to another one-year deal, and DR probably knows that.

kuba....as far as I am concerned Mitchell is the heart and soul of this team...kuba's minutes and production can be eaten up by someone else...but willie is our shutdown guy.

Ditto. I don't know if I consider him the heart and soul or not, but he is definitely the man. And if we ever make the playoffs again, you know you can count on him to get the job done. I'd feel more comfortable with him than Kuba back there.

I'd love for Willie Mitchell to sign with Toronto this off-season.

I'll go as far as giving him a 4 year deal! he's amazing.

4 years 8 million.

Even if Willie keeps playing well, I worry that we wouldn't match that deal.

Im a Leaf fan but i love The Wild.

Mainly so because Gaborik is my fav. player.

But you guys produce good D-men. So it wont be much of a deal if u lose him.
