I would say Minnesota's prospect depth didn't have the fanfare outside their fan base that other teams had. Silfverberg overshadowed Larsson. People thought Coyle was overrated and that he dominated a 'weak' league. Brodin was too small and didn't put up a lot of points in the SEL. Granlund too skinny and would be physically dominated. Phillips, Zucker, and Bulmer no one talked about. But man this team is picking up steam. Coyle is awesome. Granlund has his moments but you can see the skill. And Brodin...Brodin is a treat to watch. He might be one of the best defensemen coming out of Sweden in years. He's mature beyond his years.

I know Minnesota fans were giddy when we had Voloshenko, O'Sullivan, Pouliot but this is much different and it's amazing what the front office has assembled.
