Wild Prospects Report: Week of 2-1-2012

If you visit here, much, you know that the Wild PR staff puts together a mean prospects report each week. We then turn around and share it with you, with comment. Well, we share it with you when we remember to do so. THis is one of those times.

After the jump, you will see a great deal of success from Wild prospects, including a high level of scoring from players drafted by the guy so many seem to want to be rid of. The prospect that jumps out at me the most is Bulmer. Over a point per game, and second on the team, despite missing the start of the season while he was with the Wild. Definitely convinced they have bigger plans for him than the third line at this point.

Granlund continues to be a stud, Phillips still rocking a well above PPG pace, and now Coyle is scoring at that level as well. Plus, there are a couple guys doing well in the PIM category, so you know, in case the Wild need a couple extra guys to take a ill placed penalty.

Enjoy the report. Thanks again to Wild PR for the excellent updates.
