Kyle Brodziak Interview On Puck Daddy

Look who is getting some respect!

A couple of the highlights:

Quote:
A lot's been made about Yeo coming in with this renewed commitment to defensive hockey, openly talking about the trap. Was that style an adjustment?

To be honest, I wouldn't exactly call it we take a lot of pride in what we do defensively, but at the same time I don't think a lot of people give us credit for being an aggressive team on the forecheck or being aggressive in the D-zone as well. We d take pride defensively, but it didn't take away any of the aggressiveness.
Quote:
It's one of those things where people hear "trap" and then look at the goals-for in the standings and they think Jacques Lemaire is coaching the team again.

It's a different style than what Jacques Lemaire would be coaching. Mike preaches being aggressive on the forecheck. You look at other teams that are playing more defensively, and I don't think they're as aggressive. We're playing our best when the first guy's going after the puck as hard as he can. We want to put pressure on teams.
Quote:
The Edmonton Journal called you the "one that got away." You find that flattering?

It's definitely flattering, but right now I'm very happy about the situation I'm in. Looking back at the situation in Edmonton, I didn't play nearly my best hockey there. I'm happy with the organization, because they gave me a chance to play in the NHL, but I like my situation now. There's no hard feelings. It's a business.
Full interview is here.

Ya, seen that. Miller Lite...

Apparently ESPN also had a Wild related piece but you need insider access to read it.

I have ESPN Insider, should I link it? I've read the first paragraph and it's quite good so far.

We can't have the entire piece copied and pasted here as it's against regulations. If a particular shorter paragraph sticks out, feel free. But no more than that.

Sounds right. I'm actually surprised out of the 3 parody Wild accounts that Sign Brodziak has the worst following.

Also saw a certain Turtleneck wasn't happy with it.
