Did you try ESPN 360 Europe? You can watch every game live or on-demand.

so every game for 79€? sounds reasonable, can you record games and watch them later on? cos usually there is a lot of games that are played at the same time.

I guess it's time to do this too, as I lurk these boards quite a lot these days. I actually started lurking these boards this offseason, and found this place oddly comforting experience. Planning to come to Minnesota this winter to see a game or two.

Sorry, that name has been taken in these regions (Minnesota) by this guy:

You could coin Granlund "Finnish Baby Jesus". Or FBJ for short.

Okay, I'll bite. I'm new here.

Name: Patty

Age: 29ish

Location: Saint Paul, MN

Fav All time Minnesota player (Wild or North Stars): Koivu, Backstrom, Gaborik

Fav Current Wild: Koivu, Backstrom, Clutterbuck

Fav Non Wild Players: Selanne, Brodeur

Fav Wild Prospect: Granlund

Fav Non Wild Prospects: Leddy... the one who got away.

Fav Movies: Slapshot, 40 Year Old Virgin, Hot Tub Time Machine, Bull Durham, Star Wars

Music: Johnny Cash, Avett Brothers, Neko Case, Brandi Carlile, Led Zeppelin, Lady Gaga, Aretha Franklin, Blondie, Atmosphere... I could go on for days.

Hobbies: Karaoke. I will melt your face.

Fav food: I have a shorter list of things I don't like to eat.

Fav Beer: Grain Belt - either Premium or Nordeast, Summit, Fat Tire, or anything crisp and hoppy

Fav Wild moment/how I became a fan: It was back in 1997, when it was announced that there would be a franchise coming back to Minnesota. I was a senior in high school at the time (oops, gave away my true age) and my school was chosen to help name the team. (Woo, Johnson Govies! WOOT!) They handed out ballots in school with different options for team names and Wild sounded pretty cool. I was hooked from my first game in November 2000.

How long I have been a Wild fan: Since the inception of the team.

Origin of screen name: With a knick nack paddywhack give a dog a bone, this old man came rolling home.

Jerseys owned: Don't laugh too hard, but I have an autographed white Brad Brown jersey that I bought in like 03 I think? I also have a couple red jerseys. One with no name, the other is a women's style jersey with Koivu on it that I got on one of those NHL free customization deals, but the name/number is already peeling off (grr!), and the old style green jersey. Oh! And I have one of those volunteer jerseys from the 04 ASG

Married?: Not yet

Kids: Again, not yet but I'd love some.
