Sun of a b... Solar winds blamed for ripping away Mars' atmosphere

Might it be an opportunity?

If we understand very well the general shape of these solar winds, would it not be possible to create some sort of magnetic funnel and trap them instead of allowing them to remove atmosphere, force their path towards trajectories that capture all of these lovely sun goodies? Slowly replenish the atmosphere or at least stop the losses?
