    He's going to have to play RW. I guess he'll be in shooting position.

    As I'm trying to find something to make me feel OK about this trade, I ran across this from The Athletic's round table:

    This is not in his prospect profile, but he does indeed have one of the most satisfying last names to pronounce.

    We win this trade.

    Here is hoping he shows signs of being this elite talent he's being touted as. I have a feeling the first couple weeks are going to be a nightmare if he doesn't.

    Now this is what I like to hear. The team badly needs a "puck-carrying dynamo". You know, someone like Granlund...

    But it's still great to hear that.

    Russo says Fenton is putting unrealistic pressure on Fiala with his comments.

    Fenton is doing this trying to defend a bad deal, and Fiala is going to have to deal with the fallout if he doesn't live up to the expectations from the GM.

    Did I mention that..
    Does anybody have any idea/a best guess on which line Fiala will be playing with in his first game?

    Which isn't fair to a young kid who already has to move to a new region (and one that is going to look like Hoth in comparison to where he just was) and acclimate to a new team as it is. Fans are going to be rabid and he's just fanning those flames. If the Wild lose that first game after these trades, KFAN whine line is going to be legendary.

    Best guess, 3/4th line minutes.

    Best guess:

    Parise - Staal - Fiala
    Donato - Eriksson Ek - Kunin
    Zucker - Greenway - Aberg
    4th line

    The fact that Fenton doesn't realize how that could hurt the kid is alarming. He really has no idea what he's doing.

    Same thing will happen that happened in Edmonton with Larsson. Fine player, but just... tainted. There's no way he can become the player and the fan favorite who was shipped out for him. Lopsided one-for-one trades are a tragedy for many parties involved.

    Unless he's terrible, he will get top 6 minutes. No chance he plays 4th line

    I think if we kept el Nino, that would made Fiala a bit more comfortable. But yeah, Fenton has now gone to two teams to try and defend this pick LOL. Poor Fiala.

    I only meant from an acclimation stand point. How many practices will he get in between now and the first game in a Wild uniform? Seems they've usually eased these guys into the lineup increasing minutes as the play continues and their rhythm.
