Team: 2018-19 Minnesota Wild
Team Explanation
I have a monster-sized hockey crush on Risto! I want him in a Wild sweater! Does this trade make any sense for either team??? How's the value going both ways?
Trades
MIN
  1. Ristolainen, Rasmus
  2. Thompson, Tage
Additional Details:
Spurgeon with Dahlin would be insane! Zucker would add a ton of speed and depth the the Sabres' top 6.
BUF
  1. Spurgeon, Jared
  2. Zucker, Jason
Additional Details:
Risot with Brodin woudl be insane! Thompson would give the Wild the BIG, right-shot winger they badly need.

Spurgeons age and contract make this a hard trade to make. After Spurgeon leaves in FA, there is a massive hole at RHD

His contract is only 2 years shorter than risto. It's worth it to me and you add zucker and staple him to mittelstadt wing for 4 years

Thats a pretty good trade just one major thing missing that 7th round draft pick that every gm throws into a trade for not much reason

Both sides get very good players Minnesota get very good Right Handed on very good Contract and Minnesota would have thier DCore singed Long Term And Minnesota get Very good Player in Thompson can play center and Wing

Buffalo adds a lot of speed in Zucker and can add some Secondary Scoring can play with Mittelstadt and Okposo and Can Spurgeon can play top Minutes

2 years and 4 years older. Re-signing Ristolainen at ufa is feasible bc he’ll be 26

Well, I think spurgeon is significantly better and zucker is a real prize. Just my opinion

I like this trade. To appease Buffalo maybe you throw in Belpedio and have them add a pick/prospect so they have a RD prospect since we'd be set at RD for a long time.
