A few minutes with Devin Setoguchi in his return to play against San Jose Sharks tonight

Devin Setoguchi: What do you think about the early success? “We’re not surprised. But we still have a long ways to go and we understand that we need to stick to our process. That gives us a chance to win games.”

Wasn’t this supposed to be a rebuilding team? “We’ve got a young team and our coaches have put together a system that works for us. We’ve bought into the system and making sure that it works. It’s a pretty simple game. We go north with the puck and eliminate turnovers. (Coach) Mike Yeo’s key words are ‘work ethic’ and ‘battle level.’ And that’s what we do.”

Your scoring is down. Is it something that concerns you? “I said this even before the season started: It doesn’t matter how many goals you score. It’s how many wins you get. Our scoring is so spread out. We have so many guys who can put points on the board. One guy is never going to score all the goals for you.”

What’s it like being in Minnesota after spending your entire NHL career in San Jose? “There’s nothing wrong at all. It’s a great place to play. It’s the State of Hockey. It’s a good rink, good town, great staff and a good bunch of guys on the team. It’s all good.”
