It's better for Minnesota value wise, but if we get into details of the trade it's so miniscule difference between the 2 players that I think Colorado sort of wins out in future because they have the extra cap space going into the later stages of the season. I think if we look into it further Colorado are now maximizing space for now, and in the future. Ian Cole is a good defenseman, Greg Pateryn really isn't more than a 7th D. I don't think it really matters to either team this deal. It's so irrelevant to other deals made this isn't like some blockbuster deal, but it is setting up for Colorado to perhaps make one later.
