    He did something right at some point long ago, got famous for it and has been riding that wave ever since.

    He is the LEAST accurate trade prognosticator out there. He's famous though, so what he says is still out there... doesn't have a track record worth a damn at this point though.

    Brodin's trade value has probably never been higher. Hypothetically, what would he fetch, I wonder? To me, he is looking like a #1D this year, though him not getting PP TOI makes that opinion questionable.

    It's within my opinion the strength of the core of this defense goes straight out the window if you move brodin.

    Hes a modern time franchise two way defenseman. There are verrrry few players who have the skating, balance, iq, and calmness of Jonas and simply put can do what others simply cannot.

    Obviously it completely depends on the return, but I generally agree with you. I'm open to moving most players outside of Kap, but Brodin may be the other guy I'd be super hesitant to trade.

    He is playing the best hockey of his career and is probably the best defenseman in the league when it comes to shutting down speed and skill players. If the Wild want to be contenders and actually win in this modern NHL, a guy like Brodin would be a huge part of it and neutralizing the opposing teams stars.

    Brodin seems to me to be the most valuable part of our defense.

    I'm in no way advocating for this but to give you an idea I'd likely force suter to want to leave for his 7.5m cap space before I ever contemplate trading Brodin.

    You will never get a player to replace him in a deal so barring a McDavid he's practically unmoveable by all tense and purposes if you're trying to win playoff games in the near future.

    Roumurs in several Swedish papers (both local and national ones) is that MoJo perhaps wants to go back and play a year or two with his brother Martin in SHL before he hands up his skates.

    So that'd a mutual contract termination? Him retiring?

    Was this an immediate type of thing or a when his contract is up with the Wild? Because if it's an immediate type of thing, that opens up cap space for Boldy.

    Does Zuccarello even have a brother named Martin? Far as I could find online he has a brother named Fabian and step brother named Robin Dahlstrom.

    Edit: corrected Mojo not zucc

    Yeah, "MoJo"... "Zucc"... if you look at it cross eyed while standing on your head, you can still see they both have 4 letters... :sarcasm:

    It wasent mentioned on how but definitly not for 20/2. Both his and Martin (his brother) sits on outgoing contracts so 21/22 looks like they atleast are thinking about playing together.

    Strength of this team is the blueline. Losing Dumba to trade and then Soucy in the expansion draft would be a step back.

    This week Guerin should ask Parise to waive expansion draft this to protect Dumba. If he says no, Guerin should ask him whether he is serious about winning in Minnesota and then ask him if he would waive in a trade. If he says no, that says all we need to know about Parise, and Guerin should buy him out before the expansion draft (if possible).

    Guerin: “Zach, are you commited to bringing a cup to Minnesota”.

    Parise: “Of course. Its always been my dream to win a cup here”.

    Guerin: “Great! We want you to waive your NMC so we can trade you”.

    Parise: “Ummmm.............come again”?

    Our team would be kinda ridiculous defensively if we add Danault this summer

    I think the conversation would be more about convincing Zach that there isn't a way in hell that Seattle would choose Parise and his anchor contract, so why not do the team a solid and waive the NMC so Dumba can be protected?

    Guerin: “Zach, are you commited to bringing a cup to Minnesota?"

    Parise: “Of course. Its always been my dream to win a cup here”.

    Guerin: "I do not believe you. I asked you to waive so we can keep our blueline together, and you passed up that opportunity. Think about whether you meant it. If you haven't changed your mind by the end of the day, then you and your agent should find a new team. I will try to trade you for your sake, but if nobody is interested or if you block that, I will buy you out. That is my commitment to winning in Minnesota."

    Offensively? Probably not. Do we need to?

    If we're going to be paying him over 30M I think we should be able to expect more from him than just defense. Especially with Eriksson Ek being quite capable of being an extremely similar player and playing an extremely similar role. We do need offensive centers eventually.
