He has been amazing since February 9th! He is exactly what our young Defensemen needed. As a team, there will be ups and downs to come but without sounding too cliche, I think we really have something special brewing in the State of Hockey!

Suter has clearly raised his game. The D to D passes, the passes on the tape, the stretch passes and now the aggressive play in the O zone has been obvious. Brodin is so solid defensively. If he can continue to evolve, this duo could be one of the best in the NHL. A modern day Paul Coffey?

He makes every facet of the game look easy. I am looking forward to watching him for the next 13 years! I dont know if I have ever seen a better defencemen?

With Suter and young Brodin getting better and more confident we will have great blueliners for many years.Fletcher has done a nice job putting this team together.Remember we still have Scandella and Dumba not on this roster.

I admit, I was worried about Suter at first but as we have all seen he has settled in. He played with Weber for such a long time and Weber is having to adjust but as most Wild fans know, the Brodin/Suter combination is going to rival the Weber/Suter combination in time.

Suter is the best player to wear a Minnesota Wild Jersey, ever. Parise's close behind him, but Suter controls every game for 30 minutes and makes it look easy. He is impressive. Exciting times ahead for long abused Wild fans.

As Suter has raised his game so have the Wild. We all believed (me included) that Parise was the key addition over the summer and ZP has been a real shot in the arm for them but Suter has really emerged as a star in his own right with the Wild. I cannot think of three guys I would want to have as veterans for the young guys on the team to learn from and look up to than Suter, Koivu and Parise.

Have to admit I was a little worried at start of season but his play is nothing short of outstanding right now. Never panics and always puts himself in the right position. The ease at which he moves the puck is so different than any Wild d-man in the past. Having him next to Brodin for years means the Wild will be in the mix every year.

Fun to watch. Gosh I am enjoying this!

Let's just get the win tonight ! No doubt about it, Suter is the real deal. He and Brodin will be playing together for a long time.
