But the spread he received from Minnesota is probably more than enough to cover any additional income taxes owed.

As for him choosing Minnesota, in general, I go out of my way to avoid places like Minnesota for anything more than a brief stay during warmer months. It always interesting when I read about people who willingly choose to live there.
As Ken Holland mentioned, Suter's wife is from Minnesota, his grandparents are nearby ........ we need to find single orphans to play for us.
