Brackett sounds promising.

Michael Russo had a good article about Brackett over at the Athletic, where it showed that he did extremely well choosing from NCAA players in later rounds. Sounds like a really strong hire by the Wild.

The way Brackett left Vancouver has me a bit concerned.  It sounds like he wanted complete autonomy to draft who he wanted in Vancouver and the Canucks GM Jim Benning said no...so they decided to part ways.  He may have a decent track record as a talent evaluator but I can't see Bill Guerin just giving Brackett that autonomy here.  The team certainly is re-shaping its scouting department as it should because we've seen a whole lot of the same kinds of 'safe' players being drafted by the same people.  

 

Out so far

Yopyk

Vargas

 

In

Brackett

Murray? 

 

But the last I heard, P.J. Fenton has been reduced in role to being just an amateur scout which is more appropriate for his experience level.  

 

While its encouraging to see some fresh blood in the scouting department, we'll see what this guy does.
