Nick Bjustad (Pitt) traded to Minnesota Wild


Recommended Posts

I am sure this was talked about somewhere but I couldn't find it easily so here. Anyone wish we made this trade? Sounds like Pitt retained 50% of his salary and got a conditional 7th for him.

I think we need to do better, he's a lesser mans Jojo, this is a Jbot type acquisition

Like, offensively? He doesn't really remind me of Johansson because Johansson's biggest drawback is he wasn't a centre. This isn't a JBot acquisition at all in that sense. 

I mean, I agree we should do better but, it probably bears reminding that: we haven't, once, since the addition of ROR. And we need to do it at least twice in the next couple months. I understand and agree with the desire for two centres greater than Bjugstad, but it's funny to "ho hum" us passing on an acquisition of the type that was apparently impossible for years, at the cost of merely a 7th round pick.

It's in the...wait for it...Off-season trade thread.

@thorny raises a good question:  for those turning their noses up at Bjuggy (heh), how confident are you that the Sabres will bring in 2 centers better than he is?

I agree with @thorny, but I also think Bjugstad is a pretty low bar to clear.

Given his recent track record, it's not inconceivable that both Mittelstadt and Cozens have more to offer.

That was saying we need 2 more, counting Cozens as on the roster already. 

So they need to bring in at least 2 more, and yes one could theoretically be Mittelstadt but then he would be either in the 2C role or the Larsson role so, I'm hoping he isn't in the cards at C.
