Could Brunette return to Minnesota?

From Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

I talked with Andrew Brunette this early evening, and he’s interested in returning to Minnesota as you can read in this article. The Wild isn’t permitted to talk about potential free agents, but I think the team is interested in Brunette returning.

So this could very well come into fruition.

If you watched Brunette the last three years in Colorado and in the playoffs against the Wild, you know he can still play the game at a high level. Brunette could be a positive addition, not just on the ice, but in a locker room that’s going to definitely lose Keith Carney and Sean Hill, and almost certainly Brian Rolston (see below post), as well as Todd Fedoruk – four beloved veterans. The Wild will need Brunette’s type of character.

Read Russo's entire entry here.

The Wild look like they will probably lose Pavol Demitra and Brian Rolston, so adding a reliable veteran winger like Brunette would not be a bad idea. He doesn't get much attention, but he does the job and that is a perfect Wild type of player.

Ballhype: hype it up!
