I watched the Draft on TSN and when the WILD picked THELEN, McKenzie, McGuire and Burke said that it was a great pick because he is a good player AND he is from Minnesota and he is a local boy!!!!!! It was good for the Wild to have a local boy because it helps with the fans and the marketing dept!!!!!! They also said that when the Wild trade Hendrickson last season, the fans were upset because he was a local boy....

Hummmm, so if those THREE hockey experts are saying that it is OK to draft a local boy for the WILD, can we, Habs fan (french-canadian), dream of having local boys as well?
