Check out the score board from last night. Minny loses 2-0. Another loss. It wasn't that long ago that people were talking about Vancouver losing it's grip on first in their division. 6 points at this stage of the season is going to be pretty hard for Minny to make up.
Spending all that cash on two players has been a flop. People talk about Luongo's deal, what about the Minny deal? If Minny doesn't make it people are going to be freaking in Minny. That deal is fresh.
I'm glad Gillis and Co have stayed the course. It looks like another division win for Vancouver and home ice advantage.
Yes unfortunately many were talking of Vancouver losing the division to Minnesota, feel free to have a little more confidence in the Canucks.
Minnesota has added two exceptional players, the team has some very good pieces as well to support the core. Vancouver will take the division, Minnesota makes the Playoffs, and anything can happen once you get to the Playoffs.
But Minnesota did very well to sign Suter,Parise. You cannot consider those two signings as anything other than commitment from ownership to bring a contender to Minny. No flop.
