But Larsson is a fantastic player as well. Hopefully he can stay healthy in his career. Both are going to be great players no matter what.
Brodin has played 10 games in the NHL and he's already elite defensively?

Boy, am I ever glad I wasn't around these boards when Myers was in his rookie year.

Yes, because there's no hockey outside of the NHL where he could have developed..

What about a straight answer, do you think Brodin's playing elite defence ?

Not sure if he's elite in the NHL quite yet but he is elite for a prospect as he leads all rookie defensemen with 7 takeaways with using only 4 hits, 1st in rookie defenseman ES time with 18:16 (2nd in average ice time behind Justin Schultz), and is the Wild's #2 PK defenseman, next to Ryan Suter. Also the established playing partner with Ryan Suter (look likes they are having some chemistry together).

Not bad for a 19-year old.

I think you already got a good answer but you can also add that he was one of the best defensemen at the WCH (Swedens best one by far imo) and that he was very good in SEL as well.

I've only seem two games with him in the NHL but he looked very impressive then as well. I don't think that there are many (if any) prospects at his age that are as good defensively as he is.
