What would we look like if we weren't the wild?

Personally, I don't like the "two-word" team names. Just seems...off...perhaps its just me so used to "Wild"

I like the green jerseys but prefer the red and green. It's very unique. There are a few red teams, but the Wild have some of the best reds (aside from Chicago). All green is a little bland. Part of me wants them to make over the white jersey, but another part of me still likes it. And it's a bit of a call back to the first season, although I do really like the thinner stripes.

It'd be cool to use a little bit more of the 'wheat' color but I'm not sure in which way that'd work...it's a nice color.

Is it close enough to white that the NHL might allow it as the primary on a road sweater?

That would be awesome, but I'd doubt they'd sign off on it. The wheat and white sort of look good together. At least in NHL '11 when I make a sweater.

Go up to the Iron Range. Mining defined the area, and even now has a pretty big impact. It doesn't really fit the entire state, in my opinion, but it's a big part of our history.

Should have gone with Northern Lights and ripped off the Bloomington junior team's logo. "The Wild" is just awful. All team names should be plural nouns, none of this Jazz/Heat/Wild/etc. garbage.

When was the last time an established NHL team did a name change?

Idk I guess I like the Wild. I've always been fine with it.
