Just a quick FYI. I know nothing about him.

*Shrugs

I don't know what a Brad Staubitz is... Guess Kassian isn't ready?

At least Boogaard's gone. Though, I don't know enough about this guy to know if he's any better...

Seeing people say the Wild got hosed isn't all that comfortable...

HOWEVER, he did score 3 goals last season. Which is nice.

Hockeydb.com says he is a defenseman.

Not a lot of Pro points, not a lot of AHL points.

Meh.

Sharks fan, with info.

Staubitz is a good fighter, a tough kid, and a fairly good skater. He will occasionally skate up a wing, and out of nowhere put one past the goalie and everyone will go "where'd that come from??"

That said, he's an idiot. Dumbest hockey player I've ever seen. Just one stupid decision after the other.

It's worth it for a fifth rounder - Staubitz is cheap for what he does and better than John Scott defensively (although that's not a hard thing to achieve).

So will he actually be used at D or can he play wing also?

He never played D for us, not even when we had a short bench and he was in the roster and could have filled in. He's not really a utility player. He's an agitator who can swing. Like Tootoo, but not as good at hockey.

Sounds like a decent move, I guess. Hard to get too worked up over this guy or moving a 5th round pick.

If he can take a normal shift at wing it'd be ideal. Keeps at least one kid in Houston. Makes a more manageable salary. Adds some toughness to an otherwise soft core. Means Boogaard's time here is over. Stupid decisions I can live with for the time being. This team isn't going to be in the position where it's really going to effect much.

No they are like currency. Anytime you can spend a fifth rounder to get a cheap enforcer, I'll that as a win. Seriously, there are such slim odds that pick will actually the NHL - Cody Almond's 7 NHL games and Maxim Sushinski's 30 our expansion year are the only ones from a Wild fifth round pick - where it's worth it.

Now if we were talking about a second or third for Staubitz, then you have every right in the world to be pissed off...
EDIT: To further the point, San Jose has a total of 92 games played from their 5th round picks in the last decade - 89 of them being from one guy.

Ya, that sounds about right. I'm not laughing at you guys or anything. Stauby was a lot of fun (that Tootoo fight will live in infamy for all time).



He has potential, but his decision making is so poor, it's hard to imagine him overcoming it.

And this is why I'm completely happy with the move. It gives the team a lot more flexibility, which might be needed depending on how this year goes.

Or you offer the equivalent of this guy (boogaard) league min and if he declines, you live with john scott for another year. Or clayton stoner. You DONT GIVE UP PICKS FOR SOMETHING WE ALREADY HAVE!!

I'll take my 1/5 odds that this is the year we get someone decent in the fifth round. We do honestly need anyone we can get, not someone we already have.

Out of curiosity, where is the player in the Wild organization that can fill his role?

John Scott's also an UFA and will cost more to be a healthy scratch. Stoner on the other hand is a player who has toughness but much like Clutterbuck is not a player who the team can depend on in that role. There's a four page thread where everyone basically agreed that Matt Kassian couldn't do the job. Now personally I would have rather found someone in free agency, but this gives the Wild a lot more flexibility for the 2011 off-season all at the cost of a prospect who will for all intensive purposes probably be an AHLer for life.

Prospect depth is nice, but it starts from the top down. Minnesota still has that option for this year's draft.

I just don't understand the rational of getting worked up over a trade like this. I really don't. People just take things way too seriously.

I apologize for having even a tiny bit of passion and desire to win. I apologize if you guys are still hungover from making the playoffs three seasons ago.

Personally, and this is just me speaking, you're all entitled to your own opinion, but I like, there I said it, I like, making the playoffs. The excitement is bar none.

Now if you guys don't like it and are okay with this trade, then I guess that's fine too, because that's what MN WILD hockey as conditioned some of us to be...

I'm okay with rebuilding and sucking the next two years, but if we suck the next two years, and THEN decide to rebuild...

So do I, but I don't see how this trade hurts or make the Wild a better team. It's basically as close to a non-move as you can get and other than the fact that they don't have to sign an enforcer in free agency (which I may add, the cost would probably be more than whatever a fifth round pick is going for these days), Minnesota is the same team they were an hour ago. No better, no worse.

Nope. It has nothing to do conditioning. It's about being a realist. It's about seeing where this team is at, where it's heading, and what it can really do with it's current assets.

And let me just fill you in, if you're expecting this team to contend anytime soon given it's current make-up in addition to what few assets it has to make a move, you're going to be severely disappointed.

If you really think that a 5th round pick is the make or break shot in the dark for the playoffs... Man, I don't even know what to say to you.

This is a simple move to make sure we don't overpay ($ not picks obviously) for someone who may well end up a nightly scratch.

Fletch talked about team toughness, and adding a guy like this is obviously his first attempt to do exactly that. Nothing more, nothing less.

So we uh...I don't get this trade at all. We get rid of one useless player and spend a 5th rounder on another one? Why the hell didn't we just sign one?

Saves at least half a million plus essentially what Vashaneh said. Everyone has gone on and on about how they want a Boogaard-type player for the league minimum; well there you are.

What the hell are you even talking about? Are you the kind of fan who doesn't even know who the players on the team are until after the season starts?
