Minnesota tries to get younger and Nashville adding a 2nd liner to help their scoring. I'd say Nashville wins fairly easily.

Lol I don't think the owner meant this by giving green light to trade core pieces for the future. Awful trade for Minny

Nino Niederreiter + Mikael Granlund


Victor Rask + Kevin Fiala

Seems legit.

So Nashville gets Simmonds and Granlund for Hartman, a pick and Fiala. Has been a good few minutes for Nashville

Minnesota's new gm really must have hated Granlund so much for making this dumb ass trade! Good for Granny and good for Preds smile

also MIN is shedding salary

but if those were their aims, you'd have to think they could have done a better deal last summer

What an awfully weird trade. I voted "fair deal" because I'm just at a loss for words as to how odd this seems. But I'm willing to admit I don't watch either team regularly enough, to be a great judge of each player and how they were fitting a role on their respective teams. Everything tells me Granlund is about 2 Fiala's, at least, in trade value, so something must be missing from my assessment. But then again, being an oilers fan, you kind of get use to justifying these very same types of trades when all your young stars keep disappear, only to "reappear" as a great player on a much better managed team. Minnesota can't be this badly managed as well though, could they? It should be noted that Donato has been killing it for them, so they must feel he's capable of taking the role Granlund was playing, and now they need a solid 3rd line LW/utility type player (PK, PP, jump up in the top6 if need be). Fiala covers that base and is much younger than Granlund, as is Donato. Seems like being anchored by their big vet contracts is making them get crafty and try to build a competitor on the run. They've lost big so far in the Nino for Rask trade, but Rask is slightly cheaper and could still prove valuable in a role, so long as he plays the role well. I'm also not too certain Carolina understands how to value their players, as they've lost many good ones of late and their trades look really bad already.

So ya, fair deal I guess?
