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.
That thread sucks. Most of the opinions are wishful thinking. Highly dislike when people make up their minds about something they know nothing about. "Well yeah, I watched them 6 times last year- that's all I need." "Lucky to make the playoffs."
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.
I sure hope some Wild fans won't check that thread..
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.
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 ********.....it might be clouded by other things, but not ********.
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.
