Wow… if you wanted an exciteable trade deadline in Minnesota you have just gotten your wish. The Minnesota Wild have just traded their best playmaker, in Mikael Granlund, to Nashville for 22-year-old winger, Kevin Fiala

Alright, so there is some positive spin from Russo but if you look at the Minnesota hockey faithful around the state, there is very little positivity surrounding this deal. I don’t think the fanbase had Granlund as an untradable asset… there just seems to be a large feeling that the Wild didn’t get enough back for the Fin…. It’s coming from all angles. Here is what Hockey Guy Zak has sent me since the deal was consumated… He seems to be going through a whirlwind of emotions. I threw some tweets I’ve seen after too… It’s getting ugly out there.
