    That's a start. Hope it isn't also the grand finale.

    Donato and a fifth? That sounds a bit too good to be true, doesn't it? I thought Coyle would have higher value than that?

    I personally like the trade a lot, Donato outside of his first 9 games or so with the Bruins always just seemed to be not quite good enough to stick.

    With the LW position set for a while, I've got no problem giving up Donato. Coyle is a fine piece for the 3rd line. And they've still got the assets to upgrade the top 6.

    This is a good start

    Coyle has 2 years left on deal. I like the trade.

    Donato will be a good player but these are the moves you have to make to keep a cup contending roster together and add more firepower. I'm okay with this trade. Good luck to Donato!

    Well that Donato hype train derailed pretty quickly. Good trade. Coyle has term as well not a pure rental.

    I think next year is the last on his current deal.

    Can Coyle play center? I have my doubts. Not a fan of this, although the price seems fair.
    Donato had really no future here.

    Something just doesn't sit right with me on this. I have nothing valid to base it on, just my personal feelings after having watched Ryan grow up into the player he is today since youth days. I know Coyle is a local boy too, but I didn't have kids playing against him growing up so I don't care that he's coming back home LOL Ok, I'll stop being a girl now and go back to just thinking with a hockey mentality....

    I like this actually since he isn't just a rental. I hope they make a move for a rental 3C (or rental RW, depending on where they plan to play Coyle) now to keep that spot open for one of JFK/Frederic/Studnicka next season.

    Donato has good upside. Could be a fine addition to Minnesota. Charlie Coyle is already a good player.

    Lists of assets to work with as others have said.

    Go get Stone now (without giving up DeBrusk) and I’m happy.

    guess my dream of landing Vanek just went out the window:sarcasm:

    Like that Coyle has term, like he can play a few positions, like that no kids of current roster gone so far

    Why would you take Vanek before Nyquist?
