Rumor: Wild in trade talks with....The New Jersey Devils


As we enter into draft week we are all filled with excitement at the thought of landing the next superstar prospect. Most of us that read this site spend time scouring over mock drafts, watching youtube clips, and reading the scouting reports to come up with our wishlists. But not all of the best players acquired on draft night are actually being drafted. It is often the best time to see established stars traded for prospects and draft picks. According to Russo, rumors are flying that the Wild are in trade talks with the Devils with the Wild giving up Brent Burns. Well who could possibly warrant a blue chip defenseman? A scoring winger? Draft pick?  Find out after the jump.

First off, sorry to those of you expecting to see me say that they are trading for Zach Parise. Sorry, but that's just not going to happen. The names that have been brought up however are Brian Rolston and Dainius Zubrus. Read Russo's blog here. Both good hockey players with huge contracts that are getting up there in age at 38 and 33 respectively. I honestly can't see Fletcher going for either of these guys. He might as well just resign Burns for 5 million a season rather than take on the cap of an aging player when he says he wants to build a younger team. Besides, there will be plenty of other offers for Burns. What are your thoughts Wilderness?
