Mount Puckmore

Puck Daddy is running a feature this month called "Mount Puckmore" in which they choose the four defining faces of all 30 franchises (here is Anaheim's). So the question is, who is Minnesota's four defining faces or are even four (a la the Timberwolves who in this exercise would be KG, KG, KG and KG)?

Well, if it's just for the Minnesota Wild, it's going to be slim pickings. So...

It's more associated with Dallas.

I would say Koivu, Gaborik, Lemaire, and Ramsey

No it comes up when you are talking about the Wild. Like "man I wish they were still the North Stars." Or "I like the North Stars logo better." It's up there with boring, trap and polarizing jerseys in terms of first impressions when the Wild come up.

I'm gonna do players only: Gaborik, Mikko, Brunette and Walz. With an 07/08-like year Burns could sneak his way on there.

I would remove Trudel and Chouinard and replace them with Ladislav Benysek and Dieter Kochan.

Bust 1: Lemaire with his juicy fruit half out of his mouth.
Bust 2: Gaborik in his sunglasses (from the pic of him and Hossa walking into a premier)
Bust 3: Koivu with the expression he made while doing the river dance on the ice last season.
Bust 4: Brunette with the expression on his face after his 03 play-off OT GWG.

That should about do it.

Hopefully they don't get the guy who did the Kirby statue at Target Field...

I love the idea of what the "bust" should look like.
May i nominate Koivu in mid-scream as he skate past the Canucks bench?

I guessed those four...but having Schultz on their is ridiculous. Unless of course he's symbolic of the franchise being safe but unremarkable and ultimately unsuccessful.

I agree with all of the choices besides Schultz, Walz probably would of been more deserving.. but...

Reading peoples comments about the Wild on stuff like this is hilarious/painful to read...


Quote:
Joke franchise with joke history. I think Luis the Hot Dog Vendor should be on Minnesota's Mount Puckmore.
Quote:
Lemaire almost ruined the nhl in the states because of his boring defensive style. Koivu is a defensive center who was overrated and now is vastly overpaid. Another golf season in early april for the wild.
Quote:
those red jerseys should be on the statue..its the only redeeming quality about the wild
Quote:
REALLY....... come on some of these teams dont deserve a mt. puckmore. this is getting ridiculous

Just to name a few..
