The Wild may have lost defenseman Ryan Suter, but their depth is good enough to make up for that loss. This is the same group that has taken Minnesota to the playoffs the last five seasons so they have plenty of playoff experience to lean on while the Jets will be wide-eyed and bushy tailed. Eric Staal found his groove again, scoring 40 goals for the Wild and sucking defenses toward him. The Jets may be young, but there is no counter for the depth and experience of Minnesota. The Wild will wear down the Jets to advance.
