Yep, he definitely won't be able to keep this up into his mid thirties like the Wild fans will expect. I don't expect him to be a P/G player next season, and I'm not convinced the Wild will be a playoff team.

He might be rationalising it to himself that he can be the foundation for a winner on his hometown team, but he threw away a better chance to do it here.

This might be the most ridiculous thing I've heard all day, and I just heard Zach Parise tell me he's a loyal guy after walking away from this team.

Hudler and Parenteau are overpaid, and they aren't difference makers. I have no problem with the fact that we "missed out" on them.
