I would 100% reach out to Minnesota about Dumba, especially after the Staal trade. He would instantly make our blueline a good deal better and take some pressure off of players like Seider next season.
Last season, when the Wild started poorly, Dumba’s name got out there. So did Jonas Brodin’s. Guerin made one thing very clear: He had a specific price, and nothing was going to happen until he got it. Brodin’s now extended and isn’t going anywhere. Dumba is a good player signed to a good contract. Of course there’s interest, especially since there’s a Seattle expansion situation that will, eventually, force the Wild to make difficult decisions.
Guerin was asked if he had reached out to Dumba after the Brodin contract was announced. The answer was no.
“I know the business well enough from a player side, and I wouldn’t want to make an empty promise. I don’t have to rush,” Guerin said. “We can play all year with him. We like Matt Dumba. He’s a heck of a player. He’s a great kid. We’re very happy with him, and we think our top four will go up against anybody. I’m confident in that.”
The strength of the upcoming change work is that the association's brand, values and soul do not rest in a symbol. Frölunda HC is so much more and bigger than that and the association will use it in the process.
Frolunda is changing their logo, and it seems like they’ve put a lot of thought into the decision.
