Not me. Do a little research before banging those keys.

Someone like you asked sarcastically how many goals did Brackett score to which Iain MacIntyre wrote last year:




Zero goals. The same as Olli Juolevi at the NHL level. But Juolevi was Benning’s choice back in 2016 because the GM wanted a defenceman and loved what he saw from the Finn at the world juniors. He could have chosen Mikhail Sergachev or Charlie McAvoy. Benning is believed to have gone with Brackett’s first-round recommendation ever since.


And that's not the only source.  But....let me guess...FAKE NEWS!


lol. You want to keep talking about Brackett?  I made a short neutral factual comment on a move that was done by him and the Wild  in the draft as it happened.  Didn't know it would spurn on such a response. He did a lot for our team. Respect bro.  I know he works for an enemy rival now but I'm still interested in following how he does... so shoot me.  I promise I won't report to him about what Wiesbrod and Benning are up to if that makes you feel better.

Huh. I guess Judd must have dressed up as Delorme to push drafting Petterson….. 


All joking aside (before you blow a gasket), Judd did a good job. It’s just disingenuous to give him credit for all our good picks and somehow remove him from responsibility for our less impressive ones.


it’s like Brackett has served as the primary excuse for anything good that has happened in the organization so people who don’t like Benning don’t have to give him credit for anything good that happens.

Me too.


Id rather have a prospect than Holtby though.


I could see him get moved, but I think for closer to a 4th. I think we could get more if his contract wasn't as heavily loaded on the 2nd year.

I'm not crazy about Holtby's salary, but I'm not so sure I'm ready to see DiPietro as a regular backup. If they can move Holtby at the trade deadline I'm ok with that. 

Broissot is our guy if we can fit him.


Vanacek if we wanna go cheaper and can acquire him.
