Stars/Rangers fan here.
1) How do teams & fans around the league view us? are we just a cheesy expansion team thats considered filler on your schedule or do you guys look forward to playing us?
I view you guys as an essential team, since the fanbase up there is so dedicated. I dont necessarily look forward to playing you, but I don't mind it either.
2) Do we get a little extra respect over most other new expansion teams from around the league for being a team from an American hockey mecca & for most people knowing that we shouldnt have lost the N'stars in the first place & for having great fans? or are people indifferent to that?
I do. I have a lot of family in Minnesota who is wild about hockey, though moreso high school and college. I know the fans up there are just waiting for a good product.
3) I was surprised to see the Wild get voted as having the best logo recently (not counting the O6 teams) do most people see us as having generally good uni's too or is the concensus that we need to drop the red?
I love the Red and Green.
4) Has bringing in Fletcher and all the recent moves he's making give the impression that the Wild are finally on the right track & that we're starting to command a little respectability or are we still just viewed as kind of a bottom/middle dweller?
Fletcher seems like any GM trying to salvage something out of nothing. I think your guys prospect pool is good but you're going to be on the bubble with the rest of us in the West.
5) Have people finally gotten past the stigma that were a Lemaire trapping , defense only team? Or are we still considered "boring" to people?
I never thought you guys trapped under Richards, but think you're kinda boring just because of few exciting players.
