Just wanted to pop in and say these kind of things don't happen often to any franchise. Enjoy guys, must feel pretty good to be a Wild fan right about now

Underrated feature of this signing:

The Wild aren't going to be as atrocious in NHL 13.

as a sports fan of any of my teams, nothing like this has ever happened for my teams. the offseason for football (Tannehill to Dolphins) and hockey have been amazing.

yes. yes. yes. yes,

I must say, I think we have a chance at the playoffs this year.

Congratulations, Wild fans! You guys deserve this. I'm really happy for you, and thrilled to see those two sign with you. Since the Wild made it to the league, I've had a bit of a soft spot for them, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the impact this day will have on your franchise, on and off the rink. It's truly something special, to see two stars of that caliber who are so greatly respected around the league come together and decide to take this route, and not just pick a spot that would give them the best chance at a cup. I enjoy that they want to help make that happen in Minnesota. Cheers!

Damn you guys, it took a miracle for the Oilers to win in Minny before this

Sincerely, congrats, playing you is going to be less fun.

I'm guessing the first thing Leipold did this morning was ask the wife if she could transfer some money to his checking account

From a Canucks fan: Congrats guys! The state of hockey deserves to have a team that compete not only for the playoffs but to be a top team in the NHL, with these signings & your prospect group the wheels are in motion. Not only has the NW division become more of a challenge but VAN/WILD games will be a lot more entertaining. I swear the last game our teams played against each other was like watching paint dry

Also gotta love when hometown boys come home to play for the team

Congrats to Wild fans! Your team has to be considered a serious play-off threat now.

I can't wait for our January trip to Minneapolis to see the Wild.

Don't think anyone will play with "pre draft rosters" now.

This really is an amazing feeling!!!

Could Minnesota free up some cap next summer to sign Suters best buddy Shea?

Considering we have Bouchard, Cullen, and Backstrom, $13.5M. Yea, its possible. I wouldn't count on it.

Signing Parise and Suter makes a lot easier to sign players here. I believe the Wild will be a target for many players next offseason.
