Wild with: Koivu, Parise, Suter, Dumba, Brodin, Granlund, Zucker, Coyle, Gilbert, Hackett, Heatley, Setoguchi, Scandella.
I think the Wild will be the better team the next three years. The Aeros have not been outplayed by the AHL Oilers at all. The Wild have not had problems with the Oilers as of late and addition of Parise and Suter, guys in their prime, will be better the next 3 years as the Oilers forwards round out their games and they develop some defense/goaltending.

In other words, there is no denying the young talent Edmonton has. But I don't think the gap between Edmonton's prospects and Minnesota's is as large as the gap between the NHL teams over the next 3 years.
