I know that hockeybuzz isnt the most reliable source, but they have a possiblity of Heatley and Backstrom to CLB. Got me thinking is Heatley the next player traded ?? I feel like he is now expendable, I would how ever like to see how he plays when he isnt the foward getting the most attention from other teams now that parise is here.
Gilbert is a much better skater, they are about the same offensively (Wiz has the better shot I think Gilbert moves the puck better), the one edge ill give Wiz is that he is much more physical. IMO they are pretty even, slight edge to Wiz. But that doesnt equal 2m more lol.
next season 13/14 i think we need a few roster spots open for several prospects. i think the wild could trade pmb, cullen, clutterbuck (my fav),or powe to make room for coyle, larsson, zucker etc.
Very good point Dano, given the fact that all three of the contracts for PMB, Cullen and Clutterbuck will be expiring. If PMB jumps out of the gates burying goals and feeding assists then I think he'd be a good guy to trade for draft picks/prospects. Wouldn't be opposed to them picking up an experienced D-men towards the trade deadline too.
