Over the summer, the Minnesota Wild and San Jose Sharks both made a couple dramatic trades to shake up their respective organizations.
Both deals happened to be with the same team, and neither has been a clear winner.
Brent Burns has been a 40-point guy in both of his full seasons in the NHL but has fallen off that pace this year. He's still the big, strong defenseman he was in Minnesota, but many in San Jose had higher expectations for his play when he was added to the Sharks.
Martin Havlat was late to the party because he wasn't healthy to start the season (shocking?), and then hurt himself trying to get on the ice to take a shift. He has scored only twice in 26 games this year.
Meanwhile, in Minnesota...
Dany Heatley was supposed to be a big-time scorer that was lacking on the Wild's roster. He's been a point-per-game player throughout his career, but he's only given the Wild 38 points in 51 games this year. Heatley hasn't been on pace to return to the 30-goal plateau all season, either.
And Devin Setoguchi, who signed an extension with the Sharks just days before being dealt, has been scratched for disciplinary reasons. He has only posted 18 points and is minus-10 in 39 games, and he's been every bit as disappointing as any player on Minnesota's roster.
One has to think both GMs might want a do-over from last summer.
