I really do think that from marketing perspective a Minnesota team without natives is weaker than the one that has.
It is good business and helps pay for the team.
Other thing is drafting, you take the best you can but they still should fit the organisation and the culture.
Gaborik didnt fit, he wanted the big city lights.
Koivu did fit, he doesnt care for the spotlights.
UFAs are the interesting point, we just got two, many players have connections to the area even if not locals, like Heatley.
This can be a factor in the future, its next best thing to being a original six team if the organisations is run like it is now.
Flame away, im a happy homer, we got them both!
