Maybe something like this...

Folks know that Brock is very close to his family and friends in Minny.

They figure it would be huge for the Wild to bring home a homegrown star.

The Wild are apparently looking to trade Dumba.

Canucks could use a top 4 RSD.

Throw in some people worried Boeser maybe not being worth the $7.5M qualifier due him in 2022

... and there you go?

I don't want to trade Boeser for Dumba.

Although if the Wild were to throw in a first as theman suggested, I'd be tempted.
Doc. I’ll be more clear.....

Why do some fans and writers seem to WANT this to happen?
Cuz they're morons. :mex:

How about JV, Loui and a pick for Dumba. :mex:

Just posted on another board that I would due JV + Stretcher/Joulevi/Prospect for Dumba.

Personally:

I would do Lou/Sutter + JV for Dumba. We would probably need to add a mid/late mid pick and hopefully they would give us a 2nd or 3rd back with Dumba.

Edit:

This discussion is probably best placed in the trade rumour thread.

That pretty much sums it up for me. I think Benning is sensitive to team chemistry and if it's true Pettersson spoke up about Toffoli and Hughes the same on Tanev, I'd bet both of those guys would take issue with Boeser being dealt. I'd prefer Boeser stays too but I also don't think there's a deal to be had offering Virtanen so the Canucks likely aren't a realistic trade partner for the Wild.

McCann re-signs. $2.94M AAV x 2
The Penguins have re-signed forward Jared McCann to a two-year contract.

The deal runs through the 2021.22 campaign and carries an average annual value of $2.94 million.

A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

14 goals, 35 points in 66 games this past season. Is that $ amount what JV is looking for? Are the Canucks willing to pay JV almost 3mil a season?

I would say no and thats why Benning has been getting the fans ready to lose a "young RFA"

As much as we harp on Jake (and it's mostly deserved), he is trending up each year. His playoff stats should help bring his salary down a bit, but I think Benning should be able to hang on to him - IF he wants. We all know his faults, but at some point he could pull his head out of his and start taking work seriously.

Ok apparently Petro has been advised by the blews to pursue free agency.

This is one of those rare opportunities that can transform a team like Van into a powerhouse.

Benning needs to make a legitimate offer on the guy even if it means letting Marky and possibly Tanev walk to make it happen

What a colossal fuckup by the Blues. There was no reason to make the trade for Faulk in the first place. And no reason to sign Faulk to that terrible contract. Should have re-upped the captain during the past season and dangled Parayko for futures help if they needed to clear salary.

Brown Lizzy we do not have the 9 million cap space to enter this dance party. It’s a pipe dream.

You make the room for an AP level asset.

So you’re walking on all three UFA to sign AP? So you’re down a top 6 winger, a top 10 goalie and a top 4 RH D for one 30 year old guy. Depth matter man... and I’m a big fan of this player. The big stumbling block to Pietrangelo is Tyler Myers. You don’t want to be paying 25 million to three D long term....Hughes- 10, Petro 9, Myers 6. Add in 10 for Petey, 7.5 to Boeser and then you have to think long term about Horvat/Miller. Not to mention Thatcher if he’s any good will want to get paid.

I dunno Doyle but this opportunity never happens. Bold moves sometimes turn out.

Personally i would let Marky and Toffy walk then fill those rolls affordably to add a difference maker like AP
