    Do you think Minnesota is going to make a run at Kessel by packaging their number 1 picks to whoever holds the number one spot for the upcoming draft?

    I think in the end, they might pick up ANOTHER first rounder for a draft pick and Kuba/Mitchell. Not a deep draft.

    wild will probably pick around 9-11...

    oilers around 18-21...

    2 picks combined wouldn't get them in the top 3...

    Might get them in the 4-6 range for a guy like mueller, backstrom, staal

    but ej/phil and probably toews out of the question most likely.

    Unless they throw something else in. I would LOVE to see Erik Johnson in the Wild system. Considering the value he just got for Rollie, maybe Dougie R. can do a little more sweet-talking to move up?

    (Hey, I can dream, right?)

    Frolik

    What happen to this guy? before the season everyone was saying how he was going to go 1 or 2.

    we could probably also get Jordan Stall and the poeple you mentiond.

    I saw somewhere that he only had 2 goals in 44 games in the Czech league. He also didn't have a good World Junior Championships.

    If I had two picks that fell outside the top 10 but within the top 20, I'd trade them for a higher pick no lower than 6th and pick Bryan Little or Michael Frolik.

    i want the wild to move up for backstrom personally.

    You form a line with gabby-backstrom-O'sullivan/rolston

    you got something cooking.

    pitt would laugh and ask us to throw in gaborik, then the deal might be a bit more even.

    I'm pretty sure that the 9th and 18th picks could get you into the top three, this year. If EJ goes first, and someone other than Kessel goes second, I could see the Wild move up to get him. Having a Gopher with his upside would not hurt the Wild, one bit. Maybe Okposo at nine and Forney at eighteen :D ?

    I know very little about Backstrom. What's he like? I've heard that he is a Mikko Koivu type player - solid overall, two-way game; good vison/senses, etc. Is that accurate?

    much more offense then koivu, drawn some forsberg comparisons even.

    Anyways, he's centering the first line of his SEL team at such a young age, it's almost unheard of, and he's producing.

    He's got much more upside then mikko koivu, who i think will be a solid 2nd line center. Backstrom would give them a 1st line center.

    You've got to be kidding me. Gaborik is every bit the player Malkin is.

    I'm not so much saying I would make the deal...

    I'm pointing out what it would take to get Malkin, my point was 2 first round picks, around #10 pick and #20 pick...won't land malkin.
    The asking price would be ridiculous, for good reason.

    I dont think they could or should trade up that high to get Kessel with only two mid 1st round picks. Let us not forget that the Wild aren't hurting for scoring wingers in their system, O'Sullivan, Pouliot, Voloshenko. But there D corps is really thin in the prospect department, Erik Johnson would be a God send, but it won't happen.

    Unfortunately I dont know much about this years prospects outside of the top 5ish, could anyone give some feedback on the top 5 defensmen and where they might be picked :help:

    if the wild are smart they will use their 15+ mill in cap money to go buy some established D players...

    Drafting D players...especially in this draft ehhh i dunno...if you can't get EJ..

    I'd rather deal up for a staal, backstrom, mueller..

    Not at all.
     
  24. How's that far fetched? Gaborik is a dynamite player, and if he wasn't tied to that system we'd be talking close to a 100 points this year if he were healthy.
