I don't think Dallas fans would be upset about it. I'm just imagining the media frenzy leading up to the game if they announced, say the day after Christmas, those would be the jerseys. You'd have a lot of upset people taking extreme stands, and I think it could do wonders for the publicity for both teams as well as really polarize the fanbase. Really stick it to the Minnesota fans that this is their team, and the North Stars really are gone forever. This team is the Wild, with their own path to forge, and their own history to make. Something like that could really permanently kill the constant "nostalgia" for the North Stars, which I feel really holds back fan commitment to this team.
