Burns is another one. He flies some nights and hits everything in sight. He needs a lot of time in the NHL to really be called a star but he's being groomed right and he is learning a ton.

Koivu is the only questionable first rounder the Wild picked and the camp is split on him.

Others:

O'Sullivan- wheels and a sniper. He's going to be good.

Foy- Has shown his abilities already at the top level.

Harding- Franchise/Starting Goalie.
Again I'm not trying to bash the players the Wild have drafted.

My point is that MOST teams that win the Cup have 3-5 really top flight players, and IMO only Gaborik will be one of those players.
