Pretty big win for Minneosta. Pettersson is younger, has had better underlying numbers in his healthy seasons (not that Kaprizov's aren't very good of course) and he plays a harder to find position than Kaprizov. He'll also still be pretty young if Minnesota goes through a pseudo-rebuild the next three years- he'll be 25 and still in his prime, where Kaprizov will be 28 (not old or anything but probably on the outside of his peak), so besides just being generally "younger" he matches up more with their young core and potential window.

Makes sense for Vancouver if they're in a win now mode, which they probably need to be, and Kaprizov is the more dynamic scorer, but leaves a pretty hefty hole at center for them.

Doesn't make the situation much better for either team, IMO. The major issues in both cases stem from contract problems, which won't be fixed by swapping with a team that's in a similar space in terms of available cap. Minnesota would love Petey though.

My understanding is that term has been the main issue. Kaprizov wants a shorter term deal while Minny wants longer, and Pettersson wants a longer term deal while Vancouver wants shorter. Even putting aside any value gap between the two players, their demands would line up better with their new teams

If Benning values his job at all, he won't take that. But I'm a Wild fan, so yes let's do it!

That's just what the Canucks need...another disgruntled Russian. They should have learned something from Tryamkin's defection.
