If Sunday's game against Detroit was an indication of things to come, Kyle Brodziak will be getting injured Mikko Koivu's shifts between Andrew Brunette and Antti Miettinen.

Mister Know it all says: Brodziak seems to always create chances but most always fails in being part of converting those chances into points. He does seem better to Mister Know it all this year but that does not equate into more points as usual for him. So whats my suggestion for him ? I am reaching far but the only thing that comes to mind is hypnosis...... Fletcher needs to make a trade of some sort to throw a curve into what I think will happen in the next 3 games, I think the Wild are destined to get a maximum of 1 point out of the next 6 points available..... A little note on the Devils, they beat the team ahead of them the Carolina Hurricanes 3 straight times they played them in the last 12 days and now they are only 10 points out of a playoff spot and Parise will return. Lemaire may be on his way to cup number 2 as a coach

Adding Brodziak to the "top line" with Mittens and Bruno, truly makes that a 3rd line in player quality. I think it's pretty stupid to break up a well functioning line that has two of your team's top scorers (Havlat and Clutter) to move Brodziak to the "1st" line. Granted, I'm not sure that Cullen or Bouchard would have the size necessary to fit in on the 1st line, but then throw Madden or even Almond on that line to see how they work out before you take apart your best scoring line.
