During Kyle Brodziak's second season with the Wild last year, I became a really big fan. He's a prototypical grinder, who really seemed to come into his own as the year progressed. One could make a solid argument that, after Mikko Koivu, Brodziak was the most dependable forward on the roster. I am extremely excited to see what he does this year on a line with Cal Clutterbuck and Darroll Powe. I have a feeling that in addition to driving opponents insane and endearing themselves to Wild fans, they could have sneaky-good production.
