is anyone else tired of hearing about prospects? Mike you might want to turn off the "top prospect" mantra. wasn't charlie coyle a "top prospect?" wasn't granlund a "top prospect?" it's kind of getting to be like the boy who cried wolf. why don't we start using words like "production" and stop throwing people boquets before they actually do something, anything for that matter.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Brodziak should be the one sitting down. He's gotten one lucky goal, and according to Yeo, that was enough to prove his game had gotten better. Well, if it had gotten better (I really didn't see anything to indicate that), it totally regressed against Colorado. We have enough centers playing out of position at wing to provide enough depth to plant his rear end in the press box for awhile. If they insist on playing Granlund at wing, then let Rupp center the 3rd line for a couple games. He isn't going to be any worse than #21.

Move Zucker up to the wing with Granlund and Seto. Sit PMB. And scratch Brodziak, as he's been, perhaps, more worthless than anyone thus far this year. ($2.8M a year for THAT?!). Then, just give Cullen the third line, with Clutter and Larsson on his wings. The team improves markedly right there. This team has to give serious thought to releases PMB. He just doesn't fit this team's agenda anymore, and the sooner they commit to one of the kids, the better for everyone, in such a short season. They're ALL better than PMB at this point.

pazaluna, do you even follow hockey on a national sceen? Every publication rates the Wild as having some of the top prospects in the league. What do you want Russo to call them? Last time I checked they are prospects still. I hope Zucker and Larson do well because I would love to see them get rid of Bouchard, Clutterbuck,and Cullen. I say put the kids in and let them play and see what you have.

What "numbers game" is Prosser a victim of? The guy hasn't been on the ice for a goal, yet he continually gets scratched in favor of minus players like Falk and Stoner. I seriously think it has something to do with the fact that those other two were drafted and Prosser was not. It's like they need to justify their picks. Why not just play the guys that have performed the best? In this case Nate should get rewarded.

You are not going to win a lot of hockey games with a team full of rookies. You are also not going to win with everybody afraid to make a mistake.

Fire Yeo please! Enter Bruno.
