Suter is essentially an upgrade to all three pairings after depth chart flow, and Brodin will likely make the nhl roster. That is two obvious upgrades to a team already in the top half of the league; our situation is not nearly as dire as most make it out to be.
Brodin won't make roster as he's hurt and hasn't played much this year. That leaves us with Falk Stoner Prosser in the lineup. Don't kid yourself the Wild need need an upgrade on defense to take the next step.
