Very very happy to see them go to to the Wild. Loved when they brought a team back there. It's great for American hockey in general because of the market they'll be playing in now. Also elated to see them stay away from the Penguins for obvious reasons. Still think they have some serious issues on defense that Suter alone can't fix, but I think this makes them a definite playoff team. They're signed for a long time and I expect it to be at least a few more years until they're serious contenders as some up and coming talent moves up but there's no need to hurry. They've got 13 years to work on it.

Really think this will revitalize Heatley's game. I think having some help will be a serious boost in confidence for him. I expect quite a boost in Steoguchi's production now as well.

Congrats Minnesota, you guys are on the way back up.
