If a guy who is/was predicted to be our #2 C is our #9 prospect......that is just a tremendous feeling!

It's the thing I'm most proud about.

Wondered when someone would realize that.

Even if the Wild hold his rights, Lehtonen is not a prospect according to HF. I'll never forget him though just because

Koivu, Granlund, Larsson... how does Phillips jump past 2 of them? I don't think he will ever be the Wild's 2nd line center. JMO.

Until we trade Koivu for a #1 big shot RHD. Once the prospects are proven and surging, of course.

Just for the sake of argument, neither Larsson nor Granlund are good bets for playing center in the NHL. Granlund will get every shot possible there, but I wouldn't be too surprised if we never see Larsson line up in the middle of the ice.

I think exactly the opposite of that... I think they are more than likely centers in the NHL.

I think Larsson is going to be a center for sure, or perhaps something like Zetterberg who floats between both Center and Wing.

Granlund, on the other hand, I think will be tried at both positions and will probably eventually become a prolific winger.

I'm voting Brussiers. Phillips has something defective in the way he skates. Great hands and vision but he can't skate.

We should have just a bot that reminds us that our poll is very deep in these threads so people wouldn't have to bother
