Just interesting what all the years of meh hockey for us vs. being a Cup contender the past few years for them will do to perspective.

Its been a great ride this year, I'm just glad we can enjoy it as opposed to 'Nucks fans!! LOL
I think the difference is the path the two teams took to the point total. Vancouver had a significant lead in points on us for quite some time. The Wild went on a decent run right when Vancouver started playing mediocre hockey, the Wild caught up. It took everything from the Nuck then to just keep pace since.
