Doesn't look like anyone posts in here anymore, but it's worth a shot :)


I think the trade works out pretty even for both teams. Wild got a good pick and a good prospect (and Galchenyuk can be gone after the season). Zucker will do well as a complimentary player in Pittsburgh.




@OhHiTony on Twitter posted that if the picks stayed as they are right now, it would be as many top 40 picks as they've had (combined) since 2016.

Sad to see him go, he was my favorite Wild player, even though I've pretty much been done with them since the Fenton hire. (I realize he's gone now.)

Most importantly though, I mostly hope that he and Carly continue to make their home here. They are great assets to the community, and Carly is great on KFAN.

I haven't read anything on the trade yet but I could tell something was up. I could see he hasn't had his heart in it the last few games and I figured it had something to do with trade talks. Jason hasn't been himself lately and its been frustrating. It seems like there were a couple guys who just weren't with it the last couple weeks. Zucker and Staul haven't been themselves and it probably had something to do with trade talks. Also I know everyone loves Dubnic but he's been terrible. I'm sure it has to do with his wifes situation which is a real bummer. Hope she's doing good. Looks like we can kiss the playoffs good bye for this year.

I kind of got that feeling, too. It seemed like the more he was in trade talks, the further down his game went. I imagine it's really hard to not avoid that kind of thing, though. Tough to keep your head in the game when you could be moving a thousand miles away.


I read that they will still be around in the summer, so that's good. They do a lot for the area.



Hopefully Galchenyuk can help the Wild out for the rest of the season. If they aren't going to tank, I hope they get up to the first Wild Card spot, and play someone from the Pacific. I like their odds vs. that division better.
