i think you VASTLY undervalue brodin, he is the guy who you play 27 minutes in the playoffs and he keeps the opposing best weapon off the score sheet. While this year Farjestads lost to Brynas, Silveberg the guy who tore up 1st and 3rd round opponents didn't score that much vs Farjestads, I am going to go on a hunch as say Brodin had something to do with that.

i will take a smart dman as brodin is over some big physical defensive guy any day of the week. this kid is 18 right now and he is getting praised for playing better then grown men all while playing vs grown men and even NHLers.
