Welcome!

Yes, here at HF you come to the conclusion that the trade forum is a gong show of sorts. Never to really be taken all that seriously or your head may just explode. Especially being a Wild fan, most fans of other teams just don't watch this team enough and know what sort of value players have on this team.

Hope you like the place. Always looking for more contributions.

They seem to be the perfect fodder for Really Bad Trades Other Teams Propose Involving The Wild. Very entertaining nonetheless.

Fav Current Wild: Dany Heatley

Fav Non Wild Players: Zach Parise, Patrick Kane, Sean Burke, Jeff Skinner, Brent Burns

Fav Wild Prospect: Jason Zucker

Fav Non Wild Prospects: Nino Niederreiter

Fav Movies: Inglourious Basterds, Happy Gilmore, Pulp Fiction.

Music: All kinds of rock, from classic to metal. My favorite genre is probably late 80s, early 90ís grunge however.

Hobbies: Reading, video games, playing all kinds of sports

Fav food: Chicken Cutlets.

Fav Beer: Hard to say, I rotate between Long Trail, Heineken, Newcastle, but I havenít tried nearly enough.

Fav Wild moment: January 10th, 2010. The Wild were down 5-1 to the Blackhawks going into the third period. They came back and tied it to go to overtime and Harding was outstanding in that shootout. That solidified me as a Wild fanÖthe X was rocking.

How long I have been a Wild fan: Chuck Fletcher era 2009-2010. I had always followed them but never really got into it because I canít watch them locally. Starting that year I got the hockey package for TV and have watched them religiously for 2 years now. Kind of cool to grow with the new GM as a fan, and seeing progress is always good. I was a Hartford Whalers fan as a kid, when they left I kind of stopped being a real hockey fan for a while. Gravitated to Minnesota sports because my pops was born in MN, and grew up in Blaine. Iím a Vikings and Twins fan as well.

Origin of screen name: Combo of my name and favorite number

Jerseys owned: Backstrom Red Home Jersey, Koivu Green Home Jersey

Married?: Nope.

Kids: Nope.

And just a P.S. I have read a lot of the posts over the last year, havenít posted yet but was just wondering whatís with the unicorn avatars? haha

Welcome to HF!

Short story about the unicorn comes from this post. We basically took what was an insult and made it into something else.

The gal and I have already decided we're going to name our next doggie Mikko. She seems to think it's cute and I'm quietly a Koivu fan boy...

Anywho, welcome and hope you enjoy it around here. Always nice to add another Finn to our Finnish Contingent!

Been meaning to post in this thread, and on the board. I’ve been mildly interested in the Wild for most of their existence. I’m more of a hoops fan, since the North Stars left I haven’t really cared much about pro hockey outside of video game form and the playoffs (The only sporting event I like more than playoff hockey is probably March Madness. Hockey is also by far the sport that makes the transition to video game the best.).

I usually checked Hockey’s Future around draft time every year just to see if there’s anything I should pay attention to. There’s a sports vacuum in MN right now, the Wild look interesting for the first time since gettin’ Giggy wid it put the kibosh on the hopes of an unexpected Finals run. I’ve probably already watched more complete Wild games this year than I did the last two years combined (I’m a Timberwolves fan, winters have been depressing enough).

I don’t know much about hockey, but I’m looking to learn, and I’m jumping on the Wild bandwagon this year.

Name: Horace

Age: 27

Location: Southwestern Suburbs, MN

Fav All time Minnesota player (Wild or North Stars): Stars-Jon Casey, Wild- Wes Walz

Fav Current Wild: Heatley

Fav Non Wild Players: Parise

Fav Wild Prospects: Zucker, Granlund, Phillips, Brodin

Fav Non Wild Prospects: Ricky Rubio

Fav Movies: Anchorman, Old School, Wedding Crashers, The Other Guys,

Music: Dispatch, Dylan, The Band, The Eels, Sublime

Hobbies: Minnesota sports, swimming, reading

Fav food: Making a sandwich out of leftovers the day after Thanksgiving

Fav Beer: Red Stripe

Fav Wild moment/how I became a fan: Using the WCF run as an excuse to get plowed with the other Minnesotans living in the dorms.

How long I have been a Wild fan: Pretty much since this summer

Origin of screen name: The Mighty Ducks thrillogy

Jerseys owned: Had a black North Stars jersey and a purple Mighty Ducks jersey growing up, currently own none

Married?: No

well we were kind of hoping the lack of success for our other pro franchises (excluding the WNBA) would pique a little interest in hockey again...

Welcome!
another in the long line of fans hoping the Wild make a play for Parise, i see.
