Minnesota Wild's mid-season Top 20 stocked with prospects already contributing in NHL

The Wild's controlled rebuilding process is entering a new phase this season, introducing its top prospects into the NHL in sheltered roles. Charlie Coyle, Jonas Brodin, Jason Zucker, Johan Larsson, and Mikael Granlund have all made their NHL debuts, with various degrees of immersion and success. The Minnesota Wild has been careful to balance experience and youth this year, but there are plenty of players in the organization who may be asked to grow quickly in the next seasons to make the most of the opportunity at hand.

They upgraded Zucker again. He's now a 7.0B

I think after he was drafted he was a 6.5C, so that's good to see.

Other notes: Zucker and Larsson switched places since last time. Kuemper has had the second biggest jump(up 4 spots from 12 to 8), Graovac the biggest from 20 to 13. Draeger is now ranked at #20 after not being on the list last time.

Overall, good rankings.

After being pretty close to perfect agreement with the last couple lists, I think this one is a joke. It's crazy how real-life good or bad play hardly moves your ranking.

I think Brodin might have been a little underrated. Otherwise those look pretty good.
