I think he did the job he was paid to do to the best of his abilities. Mikko logged a lot of minutes probably too many too often.
It isn't MIkko's fault the Wild never went out and gained #1 and #2 centers to build the future on. And it isn't Mikko's fault that management never obtained nor nutured another player to take over the C role during his reign..
I believe he does deserve to have his jersey lifted to the rafters. He deserves to be honored and remembered for his career and legacy that he will leave in Minnesota.
