I'd love to figure out who option #2 was after Brodin.
I think it was Hamilton. When the Bruins choose him the Wild staff immediately open their folders and look to cross him over, which would imply he was on their list. If it really was him, not bad two guys targeted for Flahr & Co. Just gives me even more faith in our drafting under this regime.

they do that for every player. like when you're drafting for fantasy football and you scrub names off list and add them to the other teams.

one would think they would have made those comments after it was a lock that they would get one of their two guys, which would be after whoever picked before Boston, as at that point it would have been impossible to miss getting one of them.

i do know Hamiliton wasn't it .

Well, that could be. It just seemed significant, those gestures and expressions when Hamilton was picked but it's so easy to overanalyze there things.

Well hopefully we're not immature enough to turn it into that. I bet some NJ fan takes a cheap shot at our team and that's how chaos will ensue. Don't think there's any cheap shot that can be taken at either of the players in the poll except maybe Brodin's broken collarbone.

Start at 8:00, you get to hear Fletcher with the gem "This is why you don't trade up."
Thanks for posting. That was awesome to watch again!

(and this time I can watch it, and I realize that Flahr knew what he was talking about!)

Are you venturing into the Nashville and NJ team boards or something? I don't see anything on the main boards.

What's so wrong about a poll between two 2011 Swedish draft picks? The poll is about the players, not the organizations. If someone is immature enough to make it about the organizations then that's their problem, not mine. And I am certainly not advocating any kind of "Brodin is the best" talk.

He did the same thing on the main board opening up the door for anyone and everyone to rip the Wild for their lack of goal scoring. Asking for opinions from people who don't watch the Wild unless their own team is playing them. Will go well. Will happen again.

If Brodin was a car I think he would be a Volvo.
He ain't Turbo Saab, but reliable, a bit luxorius, capacious, efficient, versatile, safe, Volvo.

Only.. what model he would be?

...240, some wagon, T5R, 4WD Cross Country, P1800 `The Saint`, Amazon...?

So making a poll that happens to involve a Wild player is me trying to get people to rip on the Wild right? Hah, you guys make me laugh. It's about one Wild player and has nothing to do with the team or organization as a whole. If you guys are that scared that people will rip on us even for a thread like that then you shouldn't be on HF.

Says the guy whos name is WILDhockeyfan, but refused to believe the Wild was going to get better in the off-season, and then proceed to threaten to take your Wild 'fandom' over to the Flyers.... Yea. okay. Do what you want.

And Granlund was scratched for one game. It's all about relativity. Larsson is still a very young defenseman.
