Patience pays off for Brodziak in Wild win

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Patience finally paid off for Kyle Brodziak. The Minnesota Wild center had been a healthy scratch for five of his team's first eight games, something he hadn't experienced before in his career.

. @2ITB_Buffalo: Murray will have few partners in his quest to get back into the first round

Tim Murray dropped a bombshell at the GM meetings when he told Pierre LeBrun that he wants another first round selection in the upcoming draft and that he’s willing to take on salary in order to accomplish that goal. Perhaps it wasn’t a bombshell so much as an indication that Murray plans on being busy ahead of and through this month’s draft. Here’s his quote from LeBrun’s...

Wild's Game 5 overtime loss has familiar ending

There was just too much deja vu for the Minnesota Wild in Colorado on Saturday night.

Minnesota Wild: Solving the Kyle Brodziak problem (video)

It’s nearly impossible to think that Kyle Brodziak was able to score 22 goals and amass 44 points just two years ago during the 2011-12 season. It seems like it has been nearly a 180 degree turnaround since then as Brodziak has arguably been the Wild player who has struggled the most this season. With one year remaining on his contract and his play having faltered all season...

Kyle Brodziak dangles the puck around a sprawling T.J. Oshie.   I will admit, I am barely invested in tonight’s Wild game.  If I had my choice, I would take this game off.  The game that is on television right now that has my interest, isn’t even an NHL game.  The game I would rather watch is the North Dakota vs Minnesota game in the Frozen Four semi-final game.  Union...
