With so many players coming and going it is hard to slim the list down to just five. Honorable mentions for this Top 5 list (in no particular order) include;

  • Owen Nolan- His leadership, goal scoring ability, and toughness brought Wild fans to their feet for two seasons. He also wore the “C” during his tenure.
  • Mark Parrish- The Bloomington, MN native and Aquarius was a fan favorite during his time with the team. Scored 35 goals during his two seasons with the team.
  • Devin Setoguchi- Was brought in to replace the speed lost when the Wild traded Havlat to San Jose. The skilled speedster scored 32 goals in two short seasons with the team. Was hard to stop during his time with San Jose and being centered by Joe Thornton.
  • Thomas Vanek- The former Gopher was brought in to take the team to the next level. Considered a disappointment by many, Vanek 39 goals in two season with the Wild, before his departure. Overpriced? Sure. Were Wild fans excited when he was brought in? Yep.
