    Thats a pretty good trade for the Wils considering I dont know much about Partick O'Sullivan.

    Patrick O'Sullivan TORE IT UP in our minor league system..

    I personally don't like the deal.. We traded the pick we got from the Roli trade and O'sullivan for Demitra..

    So it's basically like trading Roloson and Pat for Demitra.. I think O'sullivan will be a very solid player.. And Demitra is 31.. Yes not too old.. But still..

    Actually we do need some scorers.. And now.. So i'm flipping the script right now and am gonna say this is a pretty solid trade.. Rolston, Gaborik, And Demitra should be some good scoring.. I'm hoping Mikko Koivu and Pierre Marc Bouchard come around too.. And with Manny in the net I'm hoping we can make the playoffs..

    We have a ton of yong talent and i'm kinda glad we shipped off a little bit to add a proven scorer now.. I'm getting sick of watching young talent not develop well




    One Love

    This is a great trade! The Wild front office is finally showing a desire to take the team to a seriously compeitive level. Demitra will contribute immediately and the move suggests a change in attitude. At this rate another signing in the works. the first thing that needs to be taken care of is Gaborik. If we sign him back, and we should, we definetly will be a good team.

    I'm very excited we chose to go this route instead of drafting and developing more talent for the future. The franchise has been around long enough that it needs to make a series of playoff runs or even the great Minnesota Hockey fans will lose interest.
