<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Nhl_oilers</b></div><div>It depends… Vancouver is giving up a center man, and a winger. Minnesota is giving up two wingers, and a defence man, and taking on a cap dump. Pettersson is really good so maybe it’s worth it to them… I would say both teams decline. Kaprizov is too good to give up on, Fiala is a good second liner, and without Dumba that defence is bad! For Vancouver, Pettersson is their 1c, and will be for years, Boeser is their 1RW, and works well there. Myers is a cap dump so is it worth it if you are taking on Myers? Idk, I guess it depends on if Minnesota can’t sign Kaprizov. This one is tough, and I can see why both teams reject. I like it!</div></div>
Yeah I figured it's one of those "both teams say no" type trades, but there's some interesting aspects to it on both sides. Vancouver could bridge Kaprizov where anything less than 4 years poses a big problem for Minnesota with the Parise/Suter buyouts. To replace Petey, JT Miller could shift to center full time and they could roll with Kaprizov - Miller - Fiala on 1st line which would be solid.
Obviously for MIN, downgrading from Dumba to Myers would suck, but if Addison could take over second defensive pairing duties, Kulikov-Myers third pair would be... uhhh... entertaining to say the least... Lot of hits and lots of penalties! haha
