<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Wildwinswhen</b></div><div>Future cap space is definitely a concern, but how much of an overpay is it really? If we aren't going to trade existing NHLers for him, then I think something like this works.
Now, we could fix the cap space problem by going Fiala, Boldy, 1st, 1st. But what does it actually take to be fair here? In my prospects model above maybe we remove Khovanov and the 2022 pick, but still if we're giving up only prospects and picks for an Eichel it's going to hurt.
I haven't seen a design yet that both MN and Buffalo fans thought was fair.</div></div>
Because Buffalo fans seem to think they'll somehow win an Eichel trade. Guessing the massive haul they got for O'Reilly gave them that idea. :tonguewink
The most I'd offer? Blue chip prospect (Rossi or Boldy), B+ prospect (Khovanov, Beckman, or Khusnutdinov), 1st round pick and Rask to help with cap. But honestly I'd just rather not. The Wild are in a great place right now, so if Guerin can navigate th expansion draft and the Parise/Suter landmines they'll be set to compete for awhile. Not much incentive to give up all that for a $10m contract with the flat cap we'll likely see the next few years.

Two packages for the wild that can possibly get Eichel.
Rossi , Addison, beckman, and a 1st
JEE, fiala, beckman , and a 1st.
Turcotte, viillardi , madden , and a 1st
Kakko, chytil , Schneider , and a 1st.</div></div>
Clearly we have different definitions for top assets because I mean it literally; the top assets the team has, not their 2nd and 4th most valueable. For LA that means Byfield. For NYR, that means Laf. Most of the posts involving Eichel on here lately has Buffalo and non-Buffalo fans insisting Minnesota would need to give up multiples of Kaprizov, Rossi, Addison, and multiple 1st round picks because LA and NYR can offer Laf + Kakko or Byfield + Turcotte like those are actually things any of those 3 teams would do.
