1. Don't like playing them, mainly because the hockey is usually not very exciting.

2. Yes.

3. I like the logo when it's just the head. The baseball style circle around it, not so much. Love the dark green and it'd be your main color if it was my call.

4. A new GM is a welcome step, but this team needs a real core. Icing a few good players plus a bunch of plumbers every year, I don't see how anyone can reasonably expect long-term success. They need a real top pairing defenseman post-Burns to anchor their defense, and has there been even a single season of Wild hockey where you looked at their lineup and didn't immediately suspect that they would struggle to score goals?

5. The degree to which they deploy the trap is irrelevant when they still play boring hockey. Despite having a terrific talent like Mikko Koivu (so underrated), almost every time I watch them, they play not to lose. I can't get behind or even get interested in teams that don't even try to win.
