Wild have a brighter future than Canucks, and the present doesn't look too bad either
There is some history there and the two teams have been fighting in the same neighbourhood for over a decade but, the last four seasons, the Minnesota Wild have been rivals to the Vancouver Canucks the way a nail is rival to a hammer. In each of those four seasons, the Canucks won four Northwest Division titles and the Wild failed to make the playoffs. On average, the Minnesotans finished 24 points behind the Canucks over that span.
