I knew going back to this thread after Brodin first game in N.A. was going to be worthy.

As expected it only took a little bit over a year.

these two guys were particularly knowledgeable and convincing:

If anything, these young athletes are far more aware of fitness and weight training than players were 20-30 years ago. There is no excuse for being weak if you know you're a top level prospect IMO.

Sorry, the fact people have to stand up and defend this pick speaks volumes about how lousy it is.

Brodin wasn't the next best defenseman available; to say nothing of the fact the team should've drafted a goal scoring forward; of which there were more than a few to choose from at #10

3) 90% of the NHL hate the Sedins... Why would he hate them anyways? Also, what does that have to do with anything.. I'm sure there's not many players on the Wild that like them. Hell, I dont really like them, should I be drafted?

4) He wants to be a Wild? every kid in the draft said they just want to be picked. any pick would say they "want" to play for the team they get picked by..

This is a BUST.

well maybe not yearS eh.. still disappointed he never took this bet

the question now is, are Pajicz, Dampland, Up7Yours, LemaireisGOD, se7en, etc still very disappointed by the Wild picking Brodin or do they get it now?

Interesting to see whether detractors' perception has changed by now, or not (yet).
