Hi everyone, been lurking for a while here and finally decided to join. Hopefully you'll accept new members with open arms

I've followed the NHL ever since I learned to read and didn't have a favourite team at first, I've slowly drifted towards the Wild after that.

Hello, I've been (very) regularly checking these boards to find Wild news and speculation for about a year. Switched over when I got tired of having to slog through all the negativity in the team website boards. Thought I had better finally post in this thread so that next time I feel the (rare) urge to contribute in a thread I can do so without entirely feeling like I'm coming out of nowhere.

Name: Marc

Age: 28

Location: Montana

Fav All time Minnesota players (Wild or North Stars): Honestly, I've got a bit of a soft spot for Zidlicky. I find him really fun to watch (more now that he is not with the wild) because I swear something always happens when he gets the puck. Whether it's a bad turnover, a delay of game at a terrible time, or a neat offensive move/shot. He just happens to help the other team more often than not.

Fav Current Wild: Koivu, Bouchard, Brodin

Fav Non Wild Players: Nick Foligno, Jamie Benn, Skinner, Sergei Kostitsyn, Kulikov, Landeskog, Tyler Meyers (I tend to be more interested in younger players because you don't know as well what you're gonna get out of them. Makes following someone more interesting to me)

Fav Wild Prospects: Bussieres (for a very silly reason: I drafted him in a GM mode of NHL 12 over a year ago and thought it was an awesome coincidence when the Wild actually drafted him), Hackett, Brodin, Bulmer

Fav Non Wild Prospects: Huberdeau, Lehner, Galchenyuk

Fav Movies: Army of Darkness, The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, and other cheesy/bad action/horror films

Music: They Might be Giants and Man Man

Hobbies: Reading, Cycling, Video and Board Games, and hockey related stuff

Fav food: I am decidedly not picky. I'll just say avocados.

Fav Beer: I tend to like ambers and Scottish ales with an occasional IPA thrown in. If you press me for a single beer I'll probably say Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Nectar.

Fav Wild moment/how I became a fan: When I started to really get interested in watching hockey a couple of years ago the Wild were my obvious choice because Minnesota is one of my favorite places and my go-to for sports teams. My favorite moment was probably Backstrom's shutout on national television against the Bruins during last year's Hockey Day in America. I found it very satisfying for a flagging Wild team to shutout the most recent cup champs on basic network television.

How long I have been a Wild fan: Since about 2010

Origin of screen name: It's one of my standards since I was a kid.

Jerseys owned: Christmas Koivu

Married?: Not yet

Kids: Not yet

Name: Mike. Nickname, Swany

Age: 27

Location: Just bought my first house in Minnetonka

Fav All time Minnesota player (Wild or North Stars): undecided. I sadly kind of love everyone equally.

Fav Current Wild: Suter / Brodin / Parise / Koivu

Fav Non Wild Players: Stamkos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wayne Simmonds, Tavares.

Fav Wild Prospect: Dumba!!!!!!!!!!!

Fav Non Wild Prospects: I enjoy tracking prospects till their draft day and if they didn't end up on the Wild, I immediately dislike them . For soon to be drafted, my fav. of the 2013 NHL draft: Seth Jones, Drouin, Mackinnon and Barkov. The obvious choices. and then Nurse, Zadorov, Pulock, Ristolainen.

Fav Movies: Fight Club, Shawshank, Boondock Saints, Army of Darkness, Spaceballs, Legends of the fall, Gran Torino, Star Wars, The Green Mile, Tommy Boy, Top Gun, Forrest Gump, Open Range, Seven, The Departed, Saving Private Ryan, and many many more.

Hobbies: Sports sports sports my whole life is sports and my new puppy (Rhodesian Ridgeback).

Fav food: Mexican, Italian, cereal ... honestly I love food. I can't stop eating. If I didn't work out and diet during the day I would weigh 450lbs. I eat more than anyone I have ever known. It's scary too see how much I consume in a week compared to others.

Fav Beer: Too many to chose, quickly... Sam Adams seasonal (any) / Summit pale ale / and on a hot day, Dos Equis w/ a small lime.

Fav Wild moment: Everything Fletcher has done. Most importantly signing Parise / Suter, blowing up the world on July 4th. I have never been on my computer during a holiday, especially not all morning / day talking hockey in the middle of the summer. Drafting Dumba and watching Brodin turn into Bacon.

How I became a fan: Unsure. Always was a fan of hockey. Due to my age, I got caught in the lockout and before then the North Stars leaving. I LOVED the Stars as a kid then stopped watching till the Avalanche were est. Once the Wild happened, I became a fanatic, and then became a STH.

Origin of screen name: GM Chuck Fletcher, Lord Fletcher. "In Fletcher we trust"

Jerseys owned: Gaborik (white), Koivu (org. green), Granlund (green), Heatley (red and digital camo), Suter green, Koivu (Finland blue), team USA (white), Havlat (all start), Wild practice (Irish green).

Married?: Fall 2014. I proposed 3 weekends ago while in Vegas with her family and mine.

Kids?: 3-5 years out. (if everything goes as planned)

Name: Will Tomlinson

Age: 22

Location: Nottingham, UK!

Fav All time Minnesota player (Wild or North Stars): Cal Clutterbuck & Zach Parise

Fav Current Wild: Clutterbuck & Parise

Fav Non Wild Players: Antony Stewart - came over to play for my team in the UK Nottingham Panthers during the lockout.

Fav Wild Prospect: Really like the look of Joe Zucker

Fav Non Wild Prospects: I don't know the NHL well enough to give an answer

Fav Movies: Love a bit of Anchorman, and for some reason I can never not watch Godzilla when it is on the TV!

Hobbies: Watching any sport, playing soccer.

Fav food: Lasagna and Pizza! A nice bacon sandwich as well.

Fav Beer: I guess now I've been watching Wild matches, it should be Bud Light!

Fav Wild moment: Having only become a fan this season, the 16 second spell in the match against the Kings the other night was great to watch, especially seeing Clutterbuck score. Really enjoyed the win @ Dallas earlier in the season, could sense how big it was especially having not won there in so long and with the history of the North Stars.

How I became a fan: Started watching Ice Hockey here in the UK recently, and have bought a ticket to watch the NFL @ Wembley later this year. Had already adopted the Vikings because of this, so thought I had better keep my American Sports teams all in the same state!

Origin of screen name: Erm, my name haha.

Sweaters owned: None yet, I'm on the lookout for something cheap and Wild related though as I don't have much spare cash! I do have a souvenir Lightning t-shirt from their Stanley Cup win though, they went on sale the day after the last game!

Married?: No

Kids?:
No
