Good for Bruno. I probably watch his goal against Roy twice a year, just to remember what winning a playoff series is like.

That's so awesome that Bruno is going to be around. I was hoping the Wild would bring him into the organization in some capacity. It's still great to see the guys like Walz and Darby who helped build this franchise working for the team. That is one thing the Wild has absolutely gotten right.

I say the biggest motivation for Uncle Leo and Fletch bringing in Bruno is because they need a quick exit plan on YEO and no way will the fans accept a CHL coach that is 30 years old who is showing promise as the next coach, they will forget easier if they are fond of the player coaching. No way are we thinking about a coach like Tippet or Hitchcock after the fans have endured this mess going on the 4th season...... Fletch did draft Brodin, Mister Sturgeon and trade Brent Burns for sir Charles and Seto who I am starting to like more ...... Not nearly enough to considered a good grade for 3 plus years of work

Still have the WILD/Col game, and I too watch it every year!! Awesome Bruno, glad you're back with the team!!!

Very good move by the Wild. Maybe their best "signing" so far. Is there still time to suit him up for tonight's game?

skeptik You beat me to it . Bruno would be a welcome addition on the Wild roster.

Totally agree, get rid of Greenlay. Welcome back Bruno!

Greenlay is awful as he makes mistake after mistake and the Wild brass thinks the fans don't catch on which is extremely condescending on their part ! Greenlay might be able to blow smoke in a more novice hockey market but he is simply rediculous to listen to for any veteran hockey fan !!
