I only saw the first page and there seemed to be a majority of posters that praised our sweaters, but of course you'll get the haters in every thread.

Not sure why Wild fans shouldn't go into that thread, there's nothing there that even annoys me in the least. Just people praising our 3rd sweaters and making suggestions on how we could improve. Some of the suggestions are pretty good too.

All of the sudden, everybody is an expert about a team no one watched except us. All in all, I suppose it does add up to us being relevant again. *deep breath* Better to be hated than ignored.

Ten minutes of futzing around left me with this.



And I just realized there's a bit of clipping on a couple of the pics, oh well...

Most of us think we're a good, not great team.

A vocal group of other fans think we're terrible (unsustainable, regressing to the mean, etc).

I couldn't care less if I tried.

That thread's not bad, I thought there would be more buthurt Devils and Preds fans or Nuck fans coming out of the woodwork to mindlessly bash the team then there are. The delusional Flames fan is funny in there though.

I'd rather deal with Vancouver fans these days. At least some of them are wishing us well and excited to see how the two teams will match up.

At least Canucks fans can speak a little more intelligently to the make-up of the Wild because they've had the opportunity to see our respective clubs in action more than once or twice a season...and their opinion isn't clouded by butthurt.....it might be clouded by other things, but not butthurt.

Had to drop a little knowledge on the main board. I seriously think nobody knows who Spurgeon is outside of the Northwest.

Only Minnesota and Vancouver make the playoffs. Guessing Vancouver is the 1 or 2 seed while Minnesota is 5-6ish.

I just can't wait until this season starts so we can prove all the haters wrong. We all know how it went last year once the injuries hit. It'd be naive to think that we won't get hit with some injuries again, but not like last year. I'm so pumped for it. I really don't think our defense is going to be as bad as everyone thinks.

By no means do I think that Spurgeon is a top pairing defenseman, but he's more than proven he belongs in the top 4. I'd prefer to have one more guy that could play top 4, but I see why Fletcher will just go into camp and see what we have here. I think we may struggle early on, but as the team grows and the lines and pairings level out we'll be okay.

Top 3 make the playoffs. Calgary finishes 9-11th as per usual. We finish 4-7.

Maybe the CBA negotiations go so well that they decide to start the season earlier than usual.
