If what kronwall said is true, then brodin has the highest upside of the 2, and is way more experienced. Id take brodin everytime.
That isn't exactly true. Brodin reminded him on Lidstrom. Thats a big difference.

Higher Upside?

Matters what you define as 'upside'. I feel Brodin will eat minutes more than Dumba, but Dumba will bring tons more offense.

2.) More likelihood to reach a high level?

Brodin. Obviously older, but in that 1 year, has proven to be able to play against and with the best Swedish players in the world

3.) Matt Dumba in his prime will be.......

Hybrid of Dion Phaneuf/Drew Doughty

4.) Jonas Brodin in his prime will be......

Kenny Jonsson

5.) What young D man are you more excited for?

Brodin

Yuppers, with two very different styles of play.

I just hope they both translate, I have faith they will.

Can't wait to see Dumba in action, but it will be hard to top the first impression i got watching Brodin play his first camp. It'll also be hard to compare,as I expect Dumba will be all over the place trying to impress while Brodin last year looked like a hockey computer piloting a Porsche.

brodin will prolly be the "best" and most useful for the team (schultz +100)

dumba will be a fan favorite and overall stud (burns)

Dumba is better defensively at the same age, he's no Burns.. More Phaneuf..

Too early to tell.

Luckily for us, we have both.

Dumba will be more exciting, but Brodin may end up being much more effective on the defensive end. I really like both, and I'm excited to see them grow.

1.) Higher Upside? Brodin, because he could be a franchise defenseman who is steady as a rock and never makes mistakes.

2.) More likelihood to reach a high level? Brodin, because he's already met and exceeded expectations and played two years of pro hockey before turning 19.

3.) Matt Dumba in his prime will be....... Dion Phaneuf...a guy who can play 25+ minutes a night, generate offense, provide tons of leadership, and change the game at a moment's notice with a big goal or big hit.

4.) Jonas Brodin in his prime will be...... Kenny Jonsson...underrated, incredibly reliable, solid shutdown defenseman who relies on puck skills, evasive skating, and high end hockey IQ to negate the opposition and move the puck back up to the offense.

5.) What young D man are you more excited for? Dumba will be a lot more fun to watch, but Brodin will control the game and quietly make the team much better.

1.) Higher Upside?
Brodin easily. He's hockey IQ is insane.

2.) More likelihood to reach a high level?
Dumba actually. I think Brodin is the "safer" bet to make the NHL, but I think Dumba will have an easier time reaching his ceiling, which I think is lower

3.) Matt Dumba in his prime will be.......
The ideal #3 Dman. A guy that makes that 2nd pairing almost as good as the first. Electric offense. Fan favorite. Pair him with a defensive-Dman and look out.

4.) Jonas Brodin in his prime will be......
#1 All-Star Dman if he puts on some muscle and learns to generate offense. The guy could play 15 years for us.

5.) What young D man are you more excited for?
Brodin just because he's closer to being NHL ready.

1.) Higher Upside?
Dumba. When I think upside, I'm thinking offense, explosiveness, and potential to become a game-changer. Both Brodin and Dumba will make the team better, but I'm counting on Dumba to be less subtle in his approach.

2.) More likelihood to reach a high level?
Brodin. He's already been playing with men for a couple years now, and his hockey IQ should keep him safe at the NHL level. Dumba is a much riskier prospect who could easily peter-off into obscurity due to multiple factors in his game.

3.) Matt Dumba in his prime will be...
PK Subban/Dion Phaneuf.

4.) Jonas Brodin in his prime will be...
Ken Johnsson.

5.) Which young D man are you more excited for?
I'm excited for Dumba's potential, but I'm also excited for Brodin's reliability. They both bring so much to the table; picking one would be like choosing favorites between my future children.

Swedish names... Hard to spell at times and confusing...

Kenny Jonsson was a very good Dman, that's pretty high praise IMO, wouldn't mind having the second coming of him.

The great hope would be that in 20 years folks will be comparing prospects and hopefully throwing out "the next Brodin" or "the next Dumba."

I'm quite happy the Wild have both. They have different skill sets, and that's good. You don't want an army of clones back there.

A variety of players helps with match-ups and makes you harder to play against.

I've seen Dumba several times in Major Junior. He's electric, passionate, explosive and a tad volatile.

Saw several Sweden WJHC games and Brodin was virtually unnoticed and I mean that in every complimentary way possible. He's smooth, smart and impossible to peg for opposing forwards.

In other words they are perfect compliments for one another and I couldn't be happier that both are in the Wild system. Barring injury we have two of the elite defensive prospects but from completely different angles.

They are our Yin and Yang.

And I couldn't be happier to have both in the system.
