Andrew Brunette Tearing It Up in Minnesota

When Andrew Brunette was forced out moved on this season, many of us lamented the loss of a solid leader. However, given the move to a more up-tempo style, it seemed that one of the self-professed slowest men in the league just didn't fit with the Avalanche's plan.

But as sad as you were to see him go, be happy knowing that he is tearing it up in his old new home with the Minnesota Wild. He's been paired consistently with Mikko Koivu and Anti Miettenin and they are absolutely lightining it up this season, including a 5-point performance from Koivu last night.

As for Brunette himself, in his first three games of the season, he has two goals and three assists to go along with his +3 rating. And those two goals came on just four shots. I caught one of the goals and it was classic Bruno. Down low in the right spot at the right time and the puck just happened to make its way to his stick. The man has great awareness.

Let's just hope he doesn't retire anybody else on the Avalanche this  year.
