It's the same as posting a picture. Click on the "mountain" and put in the .gif link.

I would love it since I was a diehard North Stars fan and have struggled to get into the Wild since they've been here. Teams like the Cleveland Browns, Winnepeg Jets, Oakland Raiders have continued the tradition when they were awarded a team or moved again. They should've done the same here. I think the X-Mas colors are terrible for the Wild. The only decent jersey is the M I N N E S O T A one. The rest are horrible. I noticed another thread with some mock jerseys of green and gold. They looked sweet and I believe that's what they should switch to. All my hockey buddies feel the same.

I know people will flame me but the Wild have pretty much been a disgrace to this state for how much support the fans gave them over the years. It's embarrassing. Sellouts for years and no product on the ice. Typical greed. Hopefully this year if there is a season, that will all change. Finally for the first time have I EVER thought the Wild could be a Playoff contender.

Anyways...I firmly believe MN could handle 2 hockey teams if the North Stars were to come back. I know it would never happen, but I'd love the chance to double for a Stanley Cup... since the State of Hockey has yet to host Lord Stanley yet.

MN can't handle two teams, you need big markets with massive advertising deals to have two teams. i could see it if the Wolves went away but even then, just not enough space for a 2nd NHL team.

also your point on the on ice product is valid, however you can also see the tides of change in what GMCF is doing, he is constructing a team for an owner who wants to win, previous ownership just padded their pockets and didn't care.

We still have the worst name in the history of pro sports, and I do think North Stars was one of the best in history, so I wouldn't be opposed but it will NEVER happen.

Nice to dream though.

Because we all loathe the Stars for existing as a total perversion of their Minnesota selves?
