Minnesotans just might lose two of their teams in the same year since the Native American counselmen of Mystic Lake Casino are majority shareholders of the team soon-to-be formerly known as the Minnesota Wild. But Gopher, you're in school to be a lawyer. Surely you can come up with a grandiose lie. You could use the practice
You mean punch and pie isn't good enough?

Great hockey market with real hockey fans, they just need a good run in the playoffs. I know you guys don't have a outspoken fanbase here and that's not a bad thing. Going to the official boards on the teams website shows me you guys probably have the nicest and most polite group of fans in the league.

They say Canadians are polite and nice in general but for sure not here with our kiddies.
There are people on the official boards still? Seriously, this isn't me making myself feel better or anything - there's no one on there.

I think you guys will have a much improved team this year, and will get more attention for it.
1. This one won.

2. This one is just my favorite.
