No, I ignored your point to make my own. There's a difference.

It's a thread of opinion and everyone has a different one. I like the North Stars name because I'm a fan of having history and something that is unique to the area in a name that represents it. That's all I care about. Haven't said one thing (up to now) about the Wild or my own opinions on the name of the current Minnesota NHL team. Likely won't.
