if Koivu stays healthy he will have a career year with Zach on his wing

For those asking, the rumor is that Parise will wear #11 and Suter will wear #20.

Quick FRB Article on Parise and Suter signing (along with the "We got him" youtube and a 4th of July greeting).

I was super excited about this until I remembered we'll still have to listen to LaPanta covering these guys.

How every other NHL team feels about the Wild getting both Parise AND Suter.

I think a) that's why so many other fans are bitter is because people did seem them as an afterthought and a secondary market and b) this is why those signings are so important to us.

Wow, congratulations Minny. Must feel nice. You guys hit the jackpot, team is looking pretty good, i'm kinda glad it was you rather than somewhere else. Just hope you're not too good. Anyways, congrats. Looks like the division, as it stands right now at least, just got bit more competitive.

Congrats Wild fans. I might be moving to Minnesota in the future and I would love to see the Wild play. But I have to remain loyal to my Ducks, even though this year looks like its going to be a rough one.

I think you mean me, and you are likely right, doesn't matter the number, he'll look great in our jersey.

Leafs fan here.

Wow quite the day for Minnesota

All I can say is, I'm soooo glad that we don't play you very often

Congrats on the signings. You guys will be awesome this year.

Great signings...I'm so jealous
