PP #1
Bruno-Koivu-Havlat
Burns-Zidlicky

PP #
Lats-Bouchard-Miettinen
Cullen-Barker
Cullen would take the draws.
Your D-pairs dont work. Burns and Zidlicky are both right handed and Cullen and Barker are both left handed.

Ah does Cullen usually play point on the PP? Guess I wouldn't know since I haven't watched a ton of his games.

Yes, he does. And unlike Havlat, he actually belongs there.

Ottawa put him there if memory serves. They had 3 centers that weren't out of place on the PP, and made room for him on the point instead of bumping one of their other two (Fischer and Spezza).

^ what he said, and this gives brodziak a lil more responsibility as he proved he can handle the havlats line.

If Richards has enough sense to put Kobasew-Brodziak-Bouchard as our 3rd line, I think many Wild fans will be pleasantly surprised at the production we will get out of Brodziak.

very true and i agree completely, but i dont see bouchard coming back until mid or late mid season. Brodz said playing that role last season really wore him down, and that he wants the checking role which im all for you know give him what he wants, but i think we've seen he can handle some responsibility so throwing him on the PP wit havlat and lats is only a plus out of him and the role he wants.

Wild tweeted about a week ago that *all* players currently under contract are going to be ready for training camp. That includes Bouchard...
