I'm souring on Granlund and I don't like Brodziak much as a top nine center. Granlund is looking more and more like a top six winger like Bouchard and less like the superstar playmaker and scorer he was projected to be.

Brodziak I think is better suited as fourth line center or possibly third line winger as a more defensive minded guy. He has brick hands and very limited offense. Which makes him about as good as any other third line center the Wild ever had, but the Wild want to be good, not be terrible like they usually are.

That would be my assumption...not bad, but then he's 37 at the end of the deal...

That's what I thought too, but as regarded as Hackett is, I think he's still a year away from being NHL starter material.

Definitely agree with that. I thought this kind of package would get a better player than Pominville, who for as much as he accomplished is 30 years old and winding down offensively.

Larsson is an A prospect. Unless I'm mistaken in what a B prospect is.
