Taking a look at the Minnesota Wild's Latest Trades

The Minnesota Wild have made some big trades so far in the offseason. One in particular I didn't like.

1st: Minnesota trades a 2021 Conditional 7th Round Pick to the Penguins in exchange for Nick Bjugstad.

2nd: Minnesota trades Eric Staal for Marcus Johansson

3rd: Minnesota trades Devan Dubnyk and a 2022 7th Round Pick for a 2022 5th Round Pick

4th: Minnesota Wild trade Luke Kunin and a 2020 3rd Round Pick for Nick Bonino, 2020 2nd round pick, and 2020 4th round pick

1st of all in my opinion, the Minnesota Wild are going full rebuild mode, Kunin would've been part of our core team later on if they wouldn't have traded him. The best thing we got out of these trades was cap space, our prospects wont be seen on NHL ice for about 5-6 years just looking at how Kaprizov developed.

The Kunin-Bonino trade was a bad choice that can't be undone on Guerin's part. The Dubnyk trade gives us more cap space so we can either call up a goalie permanently or sign a goalie for a few years as a rental or something like that. The Staal-Johansson trade was good on Guerin's part because Staal is aging, he is 5 years older than Johansson. And the Bjugstad trade I thought isn't going to make a big difference in the team.
