Bryan Little to the Wild

Just curious what it would take. It looks like Atlanta is considering buying and trying to make a run. Little hasn't really gotten back to that 30 goal form, but maybe a change of scenery? Wild has some nice pieces as far as veterans who could make a playoff impact.

What does Atlanta need? I think it might cost Minnesota a little more than what they want to give up.

He may not get 30 goals this year, but Little has been playing a lot better, and seems to be back on track as far as development goes. He's still pretty young, and since Atlanta doesn't have a lot of players with a high offensive ceiling, it would probably take a lot, maybe even a bit of an overpayment to get Little.

Maybe something like Bouchard, Johan Larsson and a 2nd?

It would take overpayment to get Little out of Atlanta. He has been our best forward this year and by far the most consistent. In his prime he'll probably be a 60-70 point forward while probably being a top 10 defensively among centers.

Hmm interesting. That's too much for the Wild to give up, but i understand why he would cost so much. He seems like an amazing fit for Koivu's wing. I don't get to watch ATL so i haven't really followed them but its good to hear he is back on track.

Little is doing so much more than is represented on the stat sheet...think Krejci in Boston, thats who Bryan is becoming imo..great system fit and he should only improve in all phases...i dont see the Wild having what it takes to get a deal done.

I think we have what it takes we just aren't willing to give it up.

Keep Bouchard and get a player who will actually improve the Wild.

Little's value to Atlanta is very similar to Koivu's value to Minnesota. Atlanta is very unlikely to traded him.

As for Pierre-marc Bouchard, why is he proposed? Unfortunately he is damaged goods for life and is probably a slip on the ice away from another concussion and retirement

watch more ATL games. he's becoming their rock down the middle and most consistent player at both ends of the ice. very Koivu like in a sense and developing at a similar rate. not that hard to see if you actually watch him play and compare their numbers at the same age.
