Makes no sense. Is anyone in this state qualified to judge talent or run a team at the top level? All our best players end up on other teams getting their names on the cup. We get a constant string of has been Canadians and Russians around here who are just here for the paycheck. Beyond sick of it 20 years after the expansion Wild played their first game.

Michigan produces a lot of hockey players yet Detroit won Cups with majority of Canadians and Europeans on the roster. It is all about management on the bench and the front office.

OP thinks that Minnesota has some sort of divine right to hockey championships, like they're privileged or something

The Wild signed their death sentence when they gave Parise and Suter those long-term contracts.

Best Minn talent arent playing because they want to desperately play in Minn. Wild dont have much history, and not original six team. Its just not a glamorous place to play.

AZ has produced Auston Matthews, and I bet that trend continues.

Anders Lee, Brock Nelson, Brock Boeser, Jake Guentzel, are chasing the money, and will go where they are traded/drafted or will pay them the most.
