After seeing his strip of the much hyped up Ryan Nugent Hopkins (remember how there was no solid number 1 draft pick this summer but now everyone is raving about how talented he is now...) where he demonstrated tons of speed and scoring ability, I began to wonder if he is the key for the Wild's success the rest of the season. Does PMB need to step up his game? Can he do it without a proven scorer on the 2nd line? Or is it a possibility to package him in a trade for someone like Zach Parise or Shea Webber to help clear up some cap space? Is it a Brent Burns situation where we could benefit more from trading one its more popular players? Your thoughts please.
