Wilderness Walk: Trades a' Foot

The rare Clutterbuck - Hannah Foslien

Could more trades be lurking in the horizon? A quick look at Chuck Fletcher's trade history.

A quick review of the trades I remember Chuck making'

Nick Leddy for Cam Barker and Kim Johnsson
Ouch, Leddy hasn’t exactly set the world on fire, but the guy is serviceable defense man with some offensive upside. Who would have thought after Leddy breaking his jaw was his only highlight for the Gophers! We Lost this Trade!!!
It's hard to believe we used to pay Nick Shultz and Kim Johnson 5mil a season each!! let that sink in

Heatley for Havlat
We won this trade, I don’t care how much we overpaid Heatley. It all worked out

Brent Burns and a 2nd for Coyle, Phillips, and Setoguchi
This hasn’t worked out. Coyle shows some promise, but we traded Guchi away for nothing. And Phillips looks to be a bust. The only saving grace was that the added prospects convinced free agents we had potential.

Sheppard for a 3rd round pick
Sheppard for anything is a great trade. A+++

Jason Pominville for Matt Hackett, Johan Larsson, a 1st, and 2nd.
yet to be determined. IDK

Niederreiter and a 3rd for Clutterbuck

This was a steal, I liked Cal, but Nino could become a legit top 6 sniper!!!

Moulson and McCormick for two 2nds and Torrey Mitchell.
Weak, especially considering how Moulson disappeared in the playoffs. But it was worth the risk, and we needed to prove to the West we weren't messing around. Unfortunately they both re-signed with Buffalo this off-season!

This footage never gets old!!!!
