Ryan Suter, Zach Parise named Alternate Captains

Just wanted to know how everyone felt about Suter and Parise getting jersey's with the A's already on them at the presser. Who were the Wild's Alternate's last year?

Correct me if I'm wrong but was it not Heatley & Cullen?

To start the season, Schultz was the permanent A while Cullen wore it at home games and Heatley wore it at away games. After the Schultz-Gilbert trade, both Cullen and Heatley were made permanent assistants.

I think you mean All-Star. Thats why Heatley should have wore an F on his shoulder.

Will they be doing home-away alternates this year or permanents?

I expected it, they are the franchise players, they get paid the most and have to set the exsample.

Great captains, Koivu, Parise, Sutter = Work ethic.

For the record, it's Alternate Captain, not Assistant.

I aint eem mad at the A's on their Jerseys already

I get it... There is no questioning Zach's Hard work .. and same for Ryan

I share the same concern for heater and taking away his A but at the same time .. Idk if he cares cause hes gonna have Mikko & Zach with him on the same line along with Ryan on his back end... Hes probably as happy as he can be with that and it should make his life a bit easier on the ice... He was only an Alternate for a portion of the season also...

I think the A was going to get taken off his Jersey sometime soon anyways for Zach or Ryan

And Cullen.. well like someone said.. Its Cullen.

Can you have more than two A's if you have a C? Or is the limit one C and two A's?

Cause if we can have one C and three A's we could have Cullen and Heatley alternate road/home again.

Good thing we aren't on a live chat, because there is no way I'm pronouncing Finnish names correctly.

It's not a mis-spelling, there are several prominent people in the league with the last name of Sutter. Also, Suter doesn't sound anything like that name. It would be like me mis-spelling "butter" as "booter."

Pretty ballzy on the Wild's part to toss the A on Parise and Suter without telling them.

Not sure Heatley and Cullen are going to like it.

That said, maybe Yeo has Mikko as the C, and then the A's rotate between Parise, Suter, Heatley and Cullen. That's a good vet core to build a team around.

Da Heater's just going to score 50 to get that A back.

'So, Dany, what do you think about the 'A's going to Parise and Suter?'

'Whatever, ****, I'm the All-Star.'

Dany won't even notice.

Koivu said that everything has gone as Fletcher promised when he resigned, Heatley was lobbying these guys in the team, i think they are in the know.

My guess is that Koivu signed as he was promised a chance for Stanley Cup in the near future, Heatley was promised the same, i think they will eat pucks to get it.

I hope for 2-3 real runs for the cup in the next 5 years.

i dont think it makes sense for them not to be.

after koivu went down the leadership was questionable, and if that happends again zach and ryan are gonna be the ones everyone turns to anyway.

with how much Heater lobbied to get these guys here I highly doubt he is going to be upset should they be wearing the A's.

And if he is, I see him playing it out The Fast and The Furious style.

Heatley: "Yeo! Parise and Suter come to my house, steal my A, embarass me and my whole family!"
Yeo: "I don't know what you're talking about?!"
Heatley: "You're an Indian Giver!"
Yeo: "I didn't Indian give to nobody!"
