Top Shelf Prospects: Minnesota Wild



Quote:
Parise and Suter signed long-term deals in Minnesota, they shouldn’t have been expected to turn around a club that was near the bottom of the league overnight. The growth of the prospects and the contributions they can make to the Wild have already begun as Jonas Brodin showed to be NHL ready and was a finalist for the Calder Trophy, while Charlie Coyle spent most of the season with the big club, playing in 42 games including playoffs. Given the short nature of the last NHL season, I think that these two have made their mark and am considering them graduated for this report.

After following Nino for the past two months now...he seems like a good kid. And I hope what he brings to the lineup is exactly what we need- a large body with a scoring knack/touch. I don't need him to become a 40+ goal scorer. The team needs another guy that can score 25+ goals.

Did you watch him in the WHC? I've heard he was amazing there.

I did not get to watch him but I heard that exact same thing from many of the Swiss posters here, and those who got to watch.

His skating is fine. It's not great, but it's better than, say, Granny's. He's got a hell of a shot. In his draft class I believe Pierre thought he had the best shot in the draft.

Hopefully he slots in and gets to play with someone who can feed him. He isn't always pretty with his goals, in fact he almost never is, but he shoots everything and is accurate, and has that knack for just knowing where to be and finishing.

Those two players also happen to be our 1C and top prospect But yeah, them coming from Finland doesn't hurt.

Hoever, Haula and Bäckström are not even close to my Top 3.

lou nanne

I heard Wild 7th round pick of 2012 Lou Nanne might not be with the gophers after his recent shoulder surgery and he plans to transfer. This sucks we could use him on the gophers.

Yes, the rumors are true... I am trusting The Lord and His plan for me. Excited to see what my future holds.

it's a very strange way to go about it... but I don't blame him for trying to prove himself elsewhere. It's gotta be tough to hear "you're only hear because of your grandfather" from fans.

Nanne never made it to campus so it's not transferring.

Nanne was a reach so I'm not really expecting him to ever make the NHL other than maybe a token few games. Not a knock on him (well I guess you can't say that), but he was drafted because of his name, not his play.

That said, I like that he's doing his own thing. He had a very good year last year, not like Lucia, but he had some big games. He has the option to do something different, and if that makes him happy, so be it. If he plays for Michigan, that's not a bad thing. He seems like a heart and soul player and has a good head on his shoulders.

Hey can anyone tell me how Kurtis Gabriel from Owen Sound has looked in camp? Is he more likely to be sent down to the AHL or the OHL at this point? Hoping Minnesota's depth at the minor league level will push him down to junior for an overage season.

Asked Michigan State head coach Tom Anastos about John Draeger's surgery. He is out 8-10 weeks with a lower body injury.
