North Stars Rememberance?

Just looking at the Jets name and history being debated with regards to Winnipeg getting a team back.

I got to thinking about the Wild-North Stars.

This is the most recent example of a city losing their team and getting it back, but another team, within the time frame where a substantial amount of fans exist from the previous franchise.

Seven years is nothing, and I've read many North Stars fans were pissed the new team were called the Wild. I also hear there's no shortage of North Stars apparel available in Minnesota.

How do modern Wild fans take this?

Add to the fact the North Stars weren't a poor franchise in the least making two Cup Finals and two Conference Championships in a 12 year period.
