<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>westleysnipez</b></div><div>Miller is a much better player than Fiala, and Fiala earned the Wild a 1st + Faber. Canucks already rejected NYR's Lundqvist+Chytil+1st at the TDL. No way would they move for Addison+2nd, it's a much worse offer than anything else the Canucks have been offered so far.
Like I said, Canucks are happy to keep Miller, Miller is hoping to stay in Vancouver. This isn't a Tkachuk situation where the player wants out. Canucks can set their price and wait. The only offers they'll be looking at include a U23 roster player+ High End Prospect + 2023 1st. If Minnesota doesn't want to off that, that is understandable, but that's the price.</div></div>
I based my statement on the trade I see above; Greenway, Boldy, Ohgren, and a ‘23 1st…which, imo, is a monster overpayment for a (very, very good) player will will most likely be aging out of his impact on the Wild by the time they are truly ready to compete…3-4 years from now.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>SimonSelaars3</b></div><div>Yeah but he’s gonna be a UFA and I don’t think Guerin is going to trade for him if he’s not confident that Miller signs an extension. Plus Miller doesn’t fit Minnesotas timeline, Minnesotas cup window is going to open 2-3 years from now once our prospects start pop into the NHL and we gather a core of Kaprizov, Rossi, Boldy, Wallstedt, Yurov, Ohgren, Brodin, Eriksson Ek, Lambos, Faber, etc.
Point is, the team is probably gonna take a step down from last season with the loss of Fiala. Miller will be in his mid 30s by the time our cup window starts to open especially once we’re released from salary cap jail.</div></div>
