Let’s start this off by saying contrary to the featured image, Kirill Kaprizov won’t be traded this season or ever but, there are a few other lucrative names on the Wild roster that could potentially find themselves on a different NHL roster by seasons end.
#1 Kevin Fiala
Forward Kevin Fiala seems to have found himself in the windmill of trade rumors almost ever since the Wild re-signed him to his new contract. This could be a move that Bill Guerin is toying with due to Fiala’s high salary and the Wild’s inability to spend too much since the cap will be tight due to the buy-outs of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Fiala does find himself having great games where he is doing everything right and yet on the flip side has games where he isn’t even noticeable or often taking bad penalties that resulted in him being benched by coach Dean Evason. On the flip side, he does have value in a trade, it’ll depend on what another NHL team values him at because I’m sure the Wild won’t give him up for pocket change.
