EDIT: Felix beat me to it. Well played sir.

Good signing depending on the amount of money, but I like the years. I would have liked to see him traded, but there's something to be said about a guy that plays as hard as he does and gives it his all every night. I can't be mad about keeping a guy like that around for 3 more years.

ShutDownDefense 02-19-2012 06:01 PM

Excellent news, but we could've got a good prospect/draft pick for him. Hopefully the cap hit isn't too high, but you can't find a better third line center than him most days.

llamapalooza 02-19-2012 06:01 PM

Want to know the terms, but seriously thank god. Yeah we could have traded him, but we do need to retain some shell of a team so the rookies coming in the next few years actually have a chance to play on a half-decent team. Needed this to keep any semblance of forward depth.

True, everyone's expecting a sudden influx of our prospect forwards, but most of them won't be here until probably Brodz's new contract expires.

Avder 02-19-2012 06:02 PM

Awesome! We didn't let him walk for nothing like I was scared we would.

Still want to see the dollar amount tho. Just hope we did not overpay.

GopherState 02-19-2012 06:03 PM

My guess on money is somewhere between $8-10 million.

Fel 96 02-19-2012 06:04 PM

I guess it worked.

forthewild 02-19-2012 06:04 PM

Brodz is the **** my first preference was to sign him and we did nothing wrong with having a 15-20g 3rd line center that can play up

rynryn 02-19-2012 06:05 PM

i'm happy with this. how happy will be determined by the $ amount.

Even if they do come during his contract, they'll develop better if there are veterans to ease the pressure and set an example.

I am happy about this. Unless the $$$ amount is high. But I'm glad Brodz is staying with the Wild:handclap:

Here's hoping this doesn't end up like the Koivu thread where the posts went something like "YES! THIS IS ****ING AWESOME...WAIT HE SIGNED FOR WHAT?"

Also for the hat trick, this is a great move by Wild PR to announce it after a Wild home win on national television.

SaintAnthony 02-19-2012 06:15 PM

Good deal. Great guy to have on your team. Hoping somewhere around 3 years 7.5 million.

Also we really him if we want to keep icing a decent team this year. I know I'm being very optimistic but 4 points out of 8th with 20+ games left, you never know they could pull it off.

W75 02-19-2012 06:17 PM

Like the man, like his attitude. He was annoyed the situation and said he only hates uncertainty, wants only play hockey. Doesn't sound like a guy who's asking too much. But you can't know because of the agents.

If it's not way too much, sounds only great!

Avder 02-19-2012 06:18 PM

Now all we need is to finally trade Zids :handclap:

Dr Jan Itor 02-19-2012 06:21 PM

So looks like Granlund starts on the wing

After today, his value just keeps plummeting.

mnwild2012 02-19-2012 06:30 PM

Great signing I love beastmode. He works so hard every game.

This is the happiest news I've heard all season.
