Stats: Long contracts haven't paid off

By ESPN Stats and Information Group

Wild Expectations? The Wild have agreed to 13-year contracts with both Ryan Suter and Zach Parise. They become two of six current NHL players with 13-plus-year contracts (Ilya Kovalchuk, Rick DiPietro, Alex Ovechkin and Duncan Keith are the others). Those six players have a combined 48 years of NHL experience and one Stanley Cup title between them (Keith in 2010).
