And it's an actual product, not just a concept. What the heck is a Wild anyway?

He didn't throw it off....now I know what you are talking about....

Hell - if I got knocked in the head with a NHL shot - I would shake my helmet off too! Nice overinterpretation though. True over-reaction from a team that lsot....trying to find excuses for collapsing - or not taking a team seriously enough.

Can't wait for your next comment. isn't a very strong argument.

Wild is an interesting (interpret - LAME) new sports name. I have no reply. We had the North Stars - much better name - but it was taken away from us.

I gotta agree with Avsgirl...the WILD is a bad name...it seems to me like alot of new american teams have shitty names...

Leafs (canadian reference)
Flames (hmmm i dont know...maybe the oil thats being burnt)
Canadiens (another candian reference)
Canucks (which mean Canadian)
Senators (because its the capital of canada)
Oilers (because we are the oil cap.)

L' Etoillle Du Nord is what it reads on the Minnesota State Crest. If you look at the Bear/wildcat logo of the Wild, you will see a river (mississippi starts in Minnesota), Pine trees, and a star (the eye of the creature). yes, it is a lame name - but I LOVE the logo.

I also remember the old logo of the Colorado Rockies (now the Devils). I love the Colorado State Flag!

Not very creative......

The others names up for contention sucked....I like either Zephyrs (train theme) or Blue Ox (babe and the blue Ox).

Oh well......they are still my team.

Go wild....(even that sounds lame, huh!)

I admit, the Wild jerseys are way better looking than ours. I don't know who designed them, but they went too far. the logo is terrible and the foot patch has confused everyone since day one.

I think I like our third jerseys better.

The Flames name originated with the Atlanta Flames, they kept it when they moved the team the Calgary. So it's probably a reference to how hot it gets down there.

You know, I was trying to be nice. I don't pick on your smiley of choice.

You want to talk about strong arguments...calling the Avs "losers" or "old stodgies" isn't one. You talk about no one respecting the Wild--the Avs deserve a hell of alot more respect than your giving them. Constantly *downplaying* the Avs skill does nothing to show off your team's ability.

I can't wait to see *your* excuses for the Wild loss today. I echo Edgeman--sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. They played well and I give them credit for that last goal, but they might want to cut down on the stickwork. All that hooking, slashing, tripping...

No excuses....I will never make excuses for a team in their third season who is building from the ground up - and has seen so much success.

Avs outplayed the Wild - and they played very sloppy today. The penalty count showed that. Although I am a HUGE fan of the "Swedes" - Forseberg is CHEAP! Cheap, cheap, cheap. I am suprised the striped haven't caught onto his little crap.

Anyway.....no excuses - they were outplayed by a better team today. Humility is an important.

Now...it is time to give Roloson some respect! no? He hasn't impressed you yet? And if he hasn't, we have an equally impressive goalie siiting on the bench!

That third Avs goal was AWESOME!!!! I love when a good play is set up like that. Awesome!

Forsberg is cheap?? So, all the blows landing on him when he fell in the net were inflicted by...who? He gives just as good as he gets. I won't defend a dirty player (*cough Marchment cough*) but Forsberg isn't cheap. If he hits someone, they deserve it.

Yes, that third goal was amazing. Jack Skellington (aka Brian Willisie) finally steps up. Hinote probably deserves most of the credit though.

Hejduk is so good though. The Wild is really shutting down the AMP line, but he managed to sneak 2 through so far. I just wish the Sakic line would wake up. I'm so tired of Reinprecht's general ineffectiveness.

I missed watching the game today. Too nice outside. Sounds like it was a pretty good game though.
