All of the sudden you Minny fans land a 1st line LW and #1/#2 Dman and you think you're ready to get a cup. Then, if anyone questions that possibility you react vehemently. As if Koivu/Granlund are the new Dats/Zet/Crosby/Malkin/Toews/Sharp/Kopitar/Richards.....
The roster has a shot if you go full on Lemaire mode, but a "shot" is it..right now. Having cap space doesn't mean what it used to, you made a solid upgrade in Parise/Suter but that doesn't make the team a serious contender, nor does it mean you'll land any other big free agents. Not many left from the Midwest.
You should be happy that you have these guys, but get over it already. The roster still needs to overachieve against quite a few other teams to earn anything. Some fans are realistic and will be happy to make the playoffs...that's more like it.
Suter's a number 1......
They bring us closer to our ultimate goal...
