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.
The Wild have some really nice quality players but you have to remember that the Aeros have played 5 of their 7 games against 3 of the worst teams in the West. November will shed a better light on the prospects in Houston with most of the games coming against middle of the pack or better teams. 4 games against OKC, that will be adding Hall, will not be fun for anyone. Luckily the first few games in December are back against extremely weak competition.
