No, but having a good pro roster isn't guaranteed success either. People get injured, people become free agents, people get traded.

What the Wild can offer is big money, longterm contract, great fans, great hockey environment, Suter and Parise being "THE" guys, both are close to family and friends, and a bright future with bright youngsters.

If you are signing for the rest of your hockey career, it becomes more than just a good current team. It becomes about family, your position with the team, and a good core of youngsters.
