Thomas Vanek is excited to be playing for his hometown Wild.
He lives in the Lake Elmo area of Ramsey County and was eager to play in Minnesota long before he became an unrestricted free agent. However, he also likes the way the team looks and feels they have a great combination of talent. "I like the way this team is," Vanek said. "You need good leadership, you need good older guys, and I think we have that, and to win, I think you need good young guys, and we have that, too. The mix is good. You don't win it on paper, but I felt there's plenty of good guys in here on and off the ice that we can grow as a team that come January and February become a team that will be tough to play against and have a chance to win."
