why not be like some of the other NHL/AHL teams and just use the second part of the name... Minnesota Wild/ Iowa Wild, based on the link below theres 6-7 teams who use the same name

Since the NHL (not Dallas) owns the North Stars name and logo, how cool would it be to see the Iowa North Stars?

Pretty sure that is the name of the Arena Football league team that plays in the same building...

You guys do know that it doesn't have to be Iowa themed, right?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Des_Moines_Buccaneers

It would be nice to have a tie in with the Wild. How many other teams re-use their original club names?
Boston Bruins = Providence Bruins
Pittsburgh Penguins = Wilkes-Barre Penguins
Ottawa Senators = Binghamton Senators
Dallas Stars = Texas Stars
San Jose Sharks = Worcester Sharks

Those are the only ones that I can think of off the top of my head and I don't want to look it up... Are there others?

There are also looser correlations like LA Kings = Manchester Monarchs...

Albany and New Jersey Devils and another loose correlation is Calgary Flames and Abbotsford Heat.
