The current aways are brutal.
I think we should go vintage wheat, with the Wild circle logo. (Opposite of the Alts)

Green Alts are good.

I don't mind the red actually. Could use some updating but, overall I like the idea. I think that the greens should be the Homes and the reds be the alternates.

aways should be changed to the aeores white jersey, home jerseys should be switched to our alt, and the red jersey should be changed to a wheat/red + Lil green and be our new alternates.

to bad we prob wont see a new alt jersey until the winter classic, cause i think its safe to say the new greens are already in the process of becoming our new home jerseys.

The Aeros home whites are really sharp. Just slap on the Wild logo and we'd have a very good away jersey, probably one of the best in the league.

The current white used to be very good, but with all the jersey changes in the last 5 years, its time has come.

Yeah, and no one else in the league had the circle logo at the time the reds came out... so they were original... can't help it if we've since been copied by half the league.

Personally I'd like to see the reds shelved for all but maybe 2-3 games per year. They look terrible except for maybe a Christmas game or something like that. The red is garish and needs to be toned down.

Something like this would be nice. Darker red, get rid of the green, and the wheat stripes look nice and vintage:



Anyways for the roads I think if they slap a Wild logo on the Aeros jerseys, we're good to go. Quick and dirty:

I like that. A nice play on the old SPAC sweaters.

how long before other alternate jerseys pop up with the college script type logo ours are sporting? Not like it's original, but it's unique in the NHL. How long before it isn't?

There is a fair amount of potential with the Wild's colors, but as it stands now Home and Away are some of the ugliest Sweaters/Jerserys in all of sports IMO.. The Red is pitiful..We look like Skating Christmas Card's..Get back to simple fella's..AKA..N.Stars-Red Wings-Bruin's-Flyer's... Nuff said!

I don't like mixing red in with the Wild jerseys but the black looks even worse.

Really wish our colors were green and gold or green and white instead of green and red. Hate the red.

Part of the gift to the fans for coming back should be letting them decide on a new jersey, and which ones they want to get rid of. Hopefully the casual Wild fans also dislike that red massacre of a jersey too.

Letting the fans decide the name was enough.

I don't mind the name. Its better than the Blizzard. Wild is open ended. It is a state of mind, and its a state of nature. It is what you make it to be.

Minnesota Wild Chief Operating Officer Matt Majka admitted to feeling queasy as he stood inside Aldrich Arena the night of January 22nd, 1998. At the time, Majka was in charge of the Wild's marketing department…correction, the Minnesota hockey team's marketing department.

Before that night, the "Wild" nickname hadn't existed. Majka, and a small group of Minnesota Hockey Ventures Group employees were led by branding consultant Corky Hall in a lengthy process of picking the nickname.
From over 13,000 submissions (which, back then, came in the form of emails, letters and faxes) from Minnesota hockey fans, there was a lot of clamoring to resurrect the North Stars nickname. A trademark issue with the NHL made that an impossibility, so Majka and his group arrived at six finalists "that had potential": Freeze, Northern Lights, Blue Ox, White Bears, Voyageurs and Wild.

The six names were pitched to the fans for feedback, and Majka admits, there wasn't a clear consensus.

"It was a bit of a 'pick em' situation as we got to the end," remembered Majka. "We liked the marketing potential of "Wild", so we went with it."

That was the reason for Majka's sweaty palms on that January night, because he knew not everybody would be on board with the new name, which was then unveiled in wordmark form.

"It wasn't as popular as we might have hoped, but we also knew we had more work in front of us," explained Majka.

As I said, "we," the fans, didn't pick the name. That ******* Majka picked it because of "marketing potential."

I could have lived with that one. I came up with my own list but I won't rant about it longer as when I was still a relative newbie I caught a ton of flack for my dislike of both the name and the jerseys.

I can't disagree with him. Not much marketing potential for Freeze or Northern Lights. And Northern Lights would just make it sound like the casino. The only other name I could see is the Voyageurs.

But also, there wasn't a clear concensus. They had to make the business decision.

It's too bad that ******* Norm Green retained the rights to "Northstars" because that was one of the greatest names in pro sports.

Dallas should have been the "Southstars" or "Lone Stars," but no, they were just the "Stars" and we were left without our beloved former franchise name.

If we would have named us the "Northerners" at least we could have regained some of our legendary past. And reclaimed the legendary "N" jerseys we had in some form.

I don't like that they want to change the jerseys AGAIN. Unless it's a new brand (like the Preds updated logo and guitar strings though the numbers) and they are scrapping all the jerseys they have now at the same time I'm not interested in a new road sweater. Like it or not those spikey numbered whites are our real "vintage" sweaters. I actually wish they would go back. Keep the whites we got, make a green one with wheat numbers instead of gold (yuck)

We need to ditch the softball jersey, the circle, and those Mountain Dew shoulder patches. Back to the manbearpig greens everyone! Spikey numbers!
