Oh Yeh! The Wild draft another Ferner that don't want to be here, knows nothing about here, has no ties to here, and we don't know or much less care who He is either. Good show.........NOT!

twinkie1 your comment is one of the most illogical train wrecks the English language has ever been abused into crafting... Please return to watching the grass grow (Twins baseball) and refrain from making such ignorant statements. Brodin is a highly prized pick and I fortunately the Wild management does not select on only local talent.

Well we should be improved....in 2016 ! I was hoping Fletcher wasn't another David Kahn but I think he may have surpassed him in incompetence. Is the Calder cup your goal Fletch ?

What don't you understand that Brodin was a 17 year old playing with grown men, in the second best league in the world. He has around elite hockey sense and is a great skater. We don't have one of those in the farm. Brodin models his game after Lidstrom. He wont' be the next Lidstrom, but he will play in the NHL. He just has to gain 15 lbs, which is easy for an 18 year old. Get a clue.
