I guess great minds think alike (although the PP is pretty much an atrocious source of "news" anymore). Didn't even see this until I got up today:

Kyle Brodziak, who has career highs with 21 goals and 43 points while playing in every game for the Wild, might be the team's most valuable player this season.

Mikko Koivu has missed a third of Minnesota's 77 games, Dany Heatley has been limited to 21 goals, Jared Spurgeon is sidelined by a concussion, and Niklas Backstrom has missed a bunch of games because of injuries, while Brodziak has jumped from line to line and remained consistent.

He scored the Wild's first goal in their 3-2 overtime win over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, March 29, at the Xcel Energy Center.

Brodziak, who signed a new three-year contract on Feb. 19, has five goals and six assists in his past 10 games and is 4-4-8 in his past five home games.

After picking up 16 goals and 37 points in 80 games last season, Brodziak said he began this season just looking to improve.

He has, but that doesn't mean it has been a good season.

"If you ask anybody what their goal is, it's to make the playoffs," he said.
