<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Hawksince71</b></div><div>Dumba’s numbers are down from previous years, so it may be opportune time to make the right offer to the Wild. I like the Leafs offered here. This is a balanced trade. However, a player like Dumba, 7th overall, with enormous upside practically demands a 1st to grab Guerin’s attention.
Minnesota seems to be spinning their wheels, another year looms as the club fails to make the post season. If the Wild are a playoff bubble team, then they will keep Dumba for their push, but if it is clear they are out by the end of February, that deal could happen.
Guerin has been patient, looking at his team weaknesses. I think if he does pull the trigger moving Dumba, it will most likely come in the off season.</div></div>
I agree and add that Dumba's only real solid year was when his contract was comming up and there is the risk he is only motivated when he could make more money.
