..and if you look at the Wild defensive prospect pool, it is quite thin outside of Brodin in terms of top end talent...much more thin than our pool of forward and goalie prospects.
Agreed - you want to have depth at all positions, and D is quite thin. If Brodin makes the Wild next fall, we will again have little in the pipeline at d, although Scandella/Brodin is a nice core to build around.
