Off we go! A bit late posting this. I don't have a lot of excitement for my team this year...I hope that changes but this state has too much hockey talent to watch this team fumble around all season again.

Saw this write up and thought it summed it up pretty well:

I mean this in the most respectful way possible I have no opinion on the Minnesota Wild.

None. No positive opinion. No negative opinion. No emotion of any kind toward them. There is nothing about them that makes me passionate in any way. This, I think, is the only attitude to take toward the Minnesota Wild if you are not actually a Minnesota Wild fan because this is the only attitude they deserve.

They are just a hockey team that exists.

If you were to ask someone to construct the most bland, run-of-the-mill NHL franchise imaginable, this would be it because that is what they are, what they have been, and what they will continue to be.

They have enough talent to make the playoffs. They have enough talent to be kind of relevant but not really relevant.

They do not have enough talent to get out of the first or do anything of significance once they get there. What they are now is probably what their ceiling is. They just exist.

Minnesota Wild: hockey team.

Pretty much spot on. I'm not even excited for them to begin the season because I know it's just more of the same.

Yep. Me too. It's just sad. Still...I'll go hang my Wild flag outside, shrug my shoulders and sigh.

I mean....WTF?

I was going to start this thread the other day but figured I should be the last person to start it this year! Lol


Gonna be a tough one, hopefully the boys can pull together and not finish in the basement cause I dont want to see our top 5 pick go to the avalanche. I'd feel much better about losing a 12 overall than 5 or higher.
