I don't know about you guys, but Suter is kinda getting on my nerves. He plays too slow with the puck and tends to make some bone head decisions.

needs to be benched for sure but they'll have to activate two other defensemen to cover for his ice time

put up a good fight...played much better in playoffs than the few times I watched them in regular season.

Need to get another scorer and a number 1 goalie.

They reached where I wanted them to be - the 2nd Round of the Playoffs! Of course, that's not to say I wanted to see more from them (ANY Wild fan, or any Minnesota sports fan for that matter would want more!), but we'll have to wait till at least next year for that...

Thanks for the good fight shown in this post-season, Wild! Better luck next year! And congrats Hawks - good luck vs any of the SoCal teams that will emerge from that other Western Conference Semifinal series...

Go get Vanek! The fact he has some personal connection to Minnesota (his wife is from there) should hopefully help...

The Wild had a great run, I'm proud of the boys. With a more solid GT rotation we would have went farther I think.

Congrats to the Blackhawks, they played a great game #6 and deserved the win.

I'm very excited for the future of our youngsters!

As an Isles fan I got to see Vanek up close for the first time. My impression was he is a guy who is streaky and doesn't always concentrate well. He takes time off mentally during games. Takes stupid penalties.

I'm sorry we ever traded for him. Moulson resigned with Sabres and we're stuck with nothing in return. I swear Garth Snow must have pictures of Wong's schlong in order to keep his job,lol.

I'm not overly thrilled about Vanek. At his rate ($6M annually) it is eerily similar to Heatley and what he turned into. We'll see. It doesn't necessarily hurt us, but I just don't see it as something/someone that will get us over the hump and into the WCF or SCF.
