Meh, they're both overrated. Good luck with those huge and unrealistically long contracts

WTH?!?!? I have not followed NHL off-season at all because I've been so busy with work'n'stuff. Now that my vacation started I decided to check out what's going on and BOOM! Wild got both Parise and Suter! Can't believe this! I think I have to open a beer to celebrate this

Are you kidding? I was expect over $8 million. That's not bad.

Wow! Huge congrats here from a Leafs fan (who would rank the Wild high on my "teams I'd like to see succeed" list) for landing both, that's awesome! Time to start calling the Wild the "Yankees of the NHL" now?

Congrats to your fan base. Minnesota is a market that really deserves a contender and some good players. Not taking anything away from Fletcher, but he's pretty fortunate they're local boys. This is the biggest one day for any franchise in the off-season in a very long time.

"Obviously was about the money"

"They'll still never win"
