E$^$%^$%^$^@!#!@#!@#!!!!

I would take Brust over Rooneem.

He's a work in progress but he did pretty good for us.

$%^$%^!!!!

Was he asking for too much money or was he deemed expendable?

Got me. The Wild are pretty ****** when it comes to prospects and signing them.

He is a good goaltender, not quiet number 1 but will push. He's aggressive from what I heard too.

This just ****ing pisses me off. The Wild don't seem to sign any of their 'quality' prospects.

Kinda funny... it's almost like a trade.

I'd say if you're looking for goaltending depth in your prospect pool, there's nothing terribly wrong with signing Brust.

I was thinking the same thing. They must have a goalie in mind that they are going to draft or sign as a FA.

Rooneem for Brust sounds like a good deal. . .

If anyone had to compare him to a current NHL goalie who would it be?


Rooneem = Craig Johnson
Brust = ?

A semi-Belfour for a CJ clone?

Looks like the Kings won that one. . .

Definitely a trade off here. A minor positional prospect for a minor goalie prospect. Nothing else to say.

Actually Brust has a better shot at making the NHL then Rooneem...

Brust has the potential to be a solid backup goaltender...

Rooneem has the potential to be...well a good 3rd line/4th line player

I thought for a second you were right, but Kopriva is there on the page, just not in top 20 and his profile is barren: Kopriva

And TSK, check out the Waddell Interview. A GM you like the sounds of I'm sure

If you donít sign any young players, and play the safe way, you might save a few dollars but youíre never going to (succeed). Youíre only going to hit on a few guys. If you donít sign guys, youíre never going to know what theyíre going to develop into. People think Ďoh but you signed 10 guys and only got one or two out of thereí, but thatís the way the system works. If you only sign three or four, you might not get any! So, yeah, we probably signed more that year though for sure to make sure we covered our bases.

Hey, that was a great interview!

You quoted the wrong part, though.

Quote:
HF: Do you ever go back and do a formal evaluation of each draft year, or how youíve done over time?
DW: We do, but Iíve always said itís a five-year period though, so weíre just at that first draft. You can evaluate the top picks within a couple years, but the whole draft, you look now and youíve got guys like Derek MacKenzie, and Blatny, Sellars, those guys, are they going to be NHL players? Some might, and some might not. I wonít name who I think those guys are. But I donít think you can do that in the first few years after a draft.

TSK, the Wild never should have drafted Brust with a 3rd rounder - he was rated much lower than where the Wild picked him. He did nothing, with the exception of the last playoff run, as an overager, to ever justify the pick. Let it go.... Between him and Nycholat, never have so many tears been shed for so little.

I wouldn't consider Brust or Nycholat so little since they are two spots were we have a weakness now. A puck-moving defenseman and a backup goaltender.

But a backup goaltender for where, the IceGators? I can't recall, but isn't Holmqvist under contract next year, and Kettles will back him up again? If so, then they don't really need a backup in the system immediately. But I do think it's a good draft for them to take a chance on a goalie after the first round.

Holmqvist has a one way deal next season and I'm unsure about the status of Kettles. I would guess that one of Kettles or Cloutier will be let go this season. Unless the Wild let Harding go back for his overage year which seems unlikely to me.

Kettles will move down to the minors with Cloutier being let go, which essentially gives us THREE GOALTENDERS. I would've kept Brust and gave him Kettles spot with the Gators and moved him up.
