Yep, guys, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Superior Saturday (I’m the one that looks most like a bridge troll, the other two are my roommates, who got Cum Laude and Summa Cum Laude. I apparently just got cum.). As you might be able to imagine, a semester with three classes, two capstones, and a play doesn’t leave a lot of room for blogging. This is disappointing, because I was enjoying the process, enjoying putting out content, and enjoying the fact that there was some growth among the readership. Also, the Schultz, Zidlicky, Zanon trades, the end of a dreadful season, the merits of tanking, Zucker’s call-up, the beginnings of draft talk, and Anthony LaPanta making everyone angry were all really interesting topics that was worthy of discussion.
So, now that I’m back, we’re going to ramp up draft/free agency talk around here. So before we talk about the prospects we could get with the #7 pick, let’s take inventory of the prospects we already have. But first, let’s talk about the hot topic of the week, Granlund Watch.
It’s getting done. Granlund isn’t
future Wild defenseman Justin Schultz. There’s nothing to be gained by this. He gets no money for re-entering the draft, and there’s not a desirable market he’d want to play in. Unless, of course, he wants to play in scenic Edmonton or Columbus.
So, for the first time since February, meet me after the jump. We’ll talk about some prospects.
