I'm with the "no black anywhere" crowd. I like that throwback/circle logo mashup!

I absolutely, positively agree 100% with the "Minnesota Fighting Saints" I still have dreams that the Wild ownership calls a press conference to "finally do the right thing" and announce that they are returning to tradition and unveil the logo to the left. There is no way we can have the North Stars back because Norm Greene stole that forever and packed it up in the United Van Lines truck.

I can't tell you how much I hate the name the "Wild" I thought it would grow on me after 10 years but I dislike it more each and every year.

Agreed! Black does not belong on a Wild sweater, breezers or socks!

Don't like the red one, it could use some green.

Here's also Doc Holliday's version about the last ones I made;

I actually kind of like this red version you made. But I do agree it needs something more........ maybe some green in the detailing.

Thanks for posting for me however!

"Minnesota Wild" may be a little weak but I think a slight change to "Minnesota Wilderness" would instantly be awesome.

Ranger fan here. Personally i like the name "Wild" but the Jersey's-Crest-and Colors gota go. IMO their awful. You look like skating Christmas Trees.. Way too much going on. I like some of the poster's idea's though. I like the Red Jersey and the White Jersey with "Minnesota" across the chest. Make it simple again.
I saw a poll recently ranking best to worst jersey's in the NHL. I think it was a Hockey News poll, but not positive and they ranked Minny's jersey's 4th or 5th from the bottem. Just above Carolina-Atlanta-Phoenix.
In any event I like what Fletch has done for you guys.. Bold prediction.....Rangers-Wild final this year.;-)

Could someone mock up a jersey with wheat substituted for the red, but keeping the style the current red ? Not sure if the shoulders would need to be green to add more color or whether the armbands are enough, and not sure whether the rear numbers would be green or merely outlined in green. (Hopefully someone can make sense of what I'm envisioning...)

Just wondering what a non-white 'white' would look like.

Really like the look of that. Though, I think it would look a bit better with a green name/number combo instead of red.

Thanks for whipping that out Fighting Saint. I was thinking more along the lines of what this providence said, maybe no red at all on it. And I still can't decide whether the shoulders being green would be too much or not.

This goes along with the jersey discussion from earlier - Minnesota's best and worst sweaters. Amazingly it's one of the few articles that likes both the third and the red circle jersey.

That is really cool. The red and green colors give a very European (Italian?) look.

Here are some mock ups of the other team names that made the final cut before they decided on the Wild:

These three are the Blue Ox, Freeze, and Voyagers

Here are the other two I have:

The white bears and my favorite, the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights jersey actually would have had hyper color in it that causes a change of color when heat is applied. You can see the difference between the two because of that yellow. Sorry they come up as thumbnails and you have to click to enlarge them. I haven't uploaded anything on here before so I am not quite sure how it all works.

I'm pretty sure they just posted those on Wild.com to make us all hate the name Northern Lights and quit *****ing about "Wild."

Hey everyone. I love the Wild identity, albeit get annoyed with the singular name as well.

How do Wild fans feel about these, and which logo combo works best?



it may be hard to see but on the white jersey the stripe between the green is wheat.

I personally love the red jersey but it needs to be altered to something similar to when it originally came out pre-edge. I'm torn on the logos because i like the circle logo on the red, but it also looks good on the rest and i dont want the same logo on all 3 as that would be boring.

I personally like the solid green ones with the logo outside the circle.

I still think if they go to a darker shade of red (maroon?) and drop the green stripes for wheat it'd be better.

Like the Maroons jerseys:

Nice, but needs less red.
I'm thinking something like this, current third with yoke and logo + pants in a darker shade of green.


and away in the same style but wheat

Like the Maroons jerseys:


Reminds me of this:




I really like the off-white/cream color because it gives the jersey a "sweater" feel, and the crest is so simple and to the point. I like our new third, but I wish it just would have been the "M" like the old Minneapolis Millers jersey.

Both are sharp. And Minnesota desperately needs a new road uniform- their white jersey is just ugh.
