    It's between ROR and Khovanov, for me. The latter's start in the KHL has been worrying, but it could just be a bad fit. i thought he looked good in the WJC's against his most talented peers, and obviously had an excellent year in the Q.

    Menell for me too. Dominated the AHL and now the KHL. He’s the best bet to be a Top 4 D/Top 6 F of all the guys above and I don’t think either of the goalies has done enough yet.

    There is no doubt that Menell has done everything that has been asked of him at lower levels. The question is whether he is the next Spurgeon, or the next Mayhew. He also has a lot of competition at RHD with Belpedio, who probably a better defender and more robust, and Addison, who might have higher offensive potential. He might have jumped the gun going to the KHL. If Pateryn can't play, and Dumba is traded, then he would've had a shot in the NHL, I think. Maybe he felt that he was out of favor with the team, or that they preferred Some other options at RD?

    The AHL season, and NHL for that matter, aren't guaranteed to happen. Guy wanted to get paid to play hockey in some capacity this year.

    I know the prospect pool in 2012 was supposed to be great but ended up just being good.

    Even with that pool's potential has the Wild prospect pool ever been this deep?

    AND

    This next draft we are looking at at least two first rounders without a Dumba or Bones trade.

    People are going to have pretty widely varied opinions on which pool is better, but I think we can generally get consensus that Rossi=Granlund as prospects. Beyond that, I'm not sure. Who's our equivalent to 2012 Coyle? Zucker? Brodin? Does Kaprizov even count as a prospect at his age?

    I'll say Khovanov=Zack Phillips but beyond that I'm not sure of anything. Is Kahkonnen a better prospect than Kuemper? Not sure who Beckman would compare to. At that time I recall people saying Johan Larsson was a future 2C, do we think Khusnutdinov could end up having a similar impact if things don't pan out perfectly?

    Yes he does. He's a prospect that is graduating this coming season.

    The 2012 wasn't even good. It was mediocre, and was one of the biggest reasons why Minnesota was mired in mediocrity at the time.

    eh it lead to 6 straight playoffs which was i believe the 3rd longest active streak in the NHL at the time. Honestly some years were derailed by injuries and some years the Wild run into a hot goalie (allen) or a cup contender in Chicago.

    I think there are plenty of team in the NHL that would've travelled back in time to trade prospect pools even if they got information of how the Wild preformed for the next 8 seasons. I think if the team would've gotten one top centre there is a real shot that they could've made it to the finals at least once.
