I totally hated the Brodin pick at first, because I couldn't believe we didn't go for a goal scoring forward instead.

Then months later I saw somw game footage of him, and thought "hmmm maybe he's ok" but then last season I saw, read, followed so much more about him, and I felt much better; except worried about his size.

Thus far he doesn't seem to get thrown around too much, and his smarts help him out of most situations anyways. I'm not ready to crown him Brian Leach Jr., but I am getting to be more and more of a fan of his with each game.

If you look back at the draft thread - I will admit that I was wrong about Bacon at first. "GO BRO !"
