I'm not denying Minnesota's drafting hasn't been great, but really. These two star players picked to sign with you. Without Parise and Suter your team looks a LOT different, now and in future.
Without GMCF trading Burns for Coyle/Phillips/Setoguchi (Freeing up cap space), Trading Havlat for Heatley (giving less room now but freeing up the contract a year earlier, also Heatley called Parise/Suter up to sell them on MN), drafting/acquiring a solid group of prospects, which Parise/Suter said was a big draw for them-the solid future for this club, we never would have gotten those two. So yeah, I'm going to give GMCF and his crew some credit here. If we still had DR as our GM we never would have gotten those two.
