The recent swap with the Boston Bruins of Charlie Coyle for Ryan Donato and a draft pick opens up over $2 million, whilst the deal that saw Nino Niederreiter traded to the Carolina Hurricanes saw another $1.25 million opened up, though Victor Rask hasn't exactly offered a great deal in return, since swapping to Minnesota Wild colours. Donato was used sparingly on the National Hockey League roster this season, averaging just 12:30 per night (he was basically a power-play specialist prior to his demotion to Providence), and scored seven goals and 12 points in 18 games for the P-Bruins this season.
The 26-year-old forward has 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists) in 60 games this season for Minnesota, but has gone without a point in his past seven games.

#MeToo daubed on kissing sailor statue day after serviceman's death
Amidst the hoopla over Japan's surrender to the United States, Mendonsa was photographed kissing a woman in a nurse's uniform. Also on the spot was Life photographer Alfred Eisenstadt, who was scrambling to capture the joy that seized the city.
Either way, despite the lack of faith seemingly shown by many fans in the current General Manager; you have to say he's doing a half-decent job of making the Wild a team with some room to invest on a bigger name. "That's just the seat that I'm sitting in right now". The Bruins are now just two points ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs for second in the Atlantic Division. Acquiring Donato and the draft pick will allow Minnesota to have more flexibility in the offseason without sending the message that they're giving up on this season. In 46 games with Boston, he had 11 goals.
Certainly the 6-foot-3, 218-pound Coyle is an upgrade at the third line center position after the Bruins have tried a rotating carousel of young players including Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, Trent Frederic and Colby Cave among others, and he's versatile enough to get a top-6 shot with David Krejci as well.
