Is everyone on track with what 'tweak' means yet? :haha:

 

Yep.. it's our ticket to the Stanley Cup starting 2025/26.  Now.. what would possess a Wild fan to pick that season as the light at the end of the tunnel?

 

Looking at a couple of boat anchors cap hits had nothing to do with it.  Honest.

So maybe we should re-boot this thread.  We've never really did this at the old WMB.  

 

Age: 40

 

When you became a Wild fan:  From the day it was announced we had a NHL team coming...

 

First NHL Game You Ever Attended:  Minnesota North Stars vs. Los Angeles Kings back in 1982 at the Met Center.

 

Favorite article of NHL Swag:  Probably a game-used stick of Pierre-Marc Bouchard's i got during the lockout while he was playing for the Houston Aeros.  I have to thank MNSOTA for that opportunity.

Holy Jerseys @CreaseAndAssist !!!  That is some impressive collection of jerseys.  I'm ashamed that I only own 2 jerseys ... A Norfolk Admirals (old AHL days ) and a Flyers # 88 Lindros with the C.

 

I own a Disney World hockey jersey but I don't think it counts. ;)

However I love your idea for a thread.  How about starting a thread in the General Hockey section for all to enjoy! :)

Norfolk Admirals is a nice sweater.  I have a Dropkick Murphy's Hockey sweater and a few high school teams I didn't put on there.  I'll add them...

Its everybody site we just moderate it.  We encourage everybody to start worthy topics site-wide not just in a particular teams sub-forum that you are a fan of.  Feel free to start any topic you deem worthy anywhere.  Matter of fact we encourage it. :) 

 

You have a wonderful idea and I don't want to steal your thunder.  I will be more than happy to start the thread, but please don't feel you are restricted to the Wild portion of this site in order to start a thread.  We are all very laid back here. :)

 

I think it a wonderful "get to know you" type topic and since this thread is now 12 pages long I think all response would get lost in the shuffle.

The website underwent a software upgrade yesterday and was down for several hours.  There still are some problems that will be addressed after the holiday weekend thus we are still missing some key features of the site.

I have one Wild sweater with no name or number on it. It will remain that way until someone on the team gets some nads AND is given the proper chance to show the team and everyone else across the country that this team is functioning properly.

 

Since Leipold doesn't have any... lol

 

Then again I have a lot of Wild T-'s and such. What sucks is this team can win and get 100 points a season by simply showing up for 20 minutes a game for most all their games. I can't even comprehend (they aren't short on talent to do that by the way) how this team could be if everyone got on board with each other from Leipold on down... And put together a minimum of 50 games a season where they all show up for 60 full minutes a game. Can you even imagine?

Same here. Got my Wild sweater one year after the "inaugural season" patch. No name or number on it yet (tho I was sorely tempted to put Skoula and minus-41 on it at one time..)

 

Also have a North Stars sweater and other items signed by former players from past Alumni Association golf outings, and a handful of late 80s / early 90s vintage jerseys that no longer fit due to increasing "musculature" of my physique..

 

It'll be interesting to see what Antti posts for unloading: my wallet develops a mysterious allergy to cash when confronted with vintage North Stars and Saints stuff.

I was a HUGE WHA fan...had season tix for both iterations of the Fighting Saints. I'll tease with the fact that I have 2 bleu (Shakey Walton and Dave Keon) and 1 Red (Mike Antonovich) Fighting Saints sweaters, plus New England Whalers (Rick Ley) Philadelphia Blazers (Derek Sanderson) and Toronto Toros  (Frank Mahovlich) 😊

Oops, and a Marc Tardif Quebec Nordiques sweater.  Sorry so discombobulated....i really need to take inventory.

 

Tardif is the all time leading scorer in WHA history.

Ahhh, good old Shakey. I was there when he got the hatty at the WHA All Star game. I was 8 at the time, and kept asking dad "St. Paul is on the east side of the Mississippi: why are all the dummies at the Civic Center cheering for the West?"

 

That sniffling noise in the background is either my wallet feeling an allergy coming, or my golf bag finding out that it might not see new clubs for yet another season.

Ha! That sneaky Kevin turned the lights off 2 days earlier than announced on Wild Message Boards

 

And here I was crafting a eulogy in hopes of making the final post. 🤨

Just a small note for a new comers to our forums. I could see out of almost 300 replies we have already almost 8000 views for the link “Wild fans say hello”. By working at different locations of Twin Cities, I use their local computers to look for the hockey news and discussions regarding a Wild team. For my convenience I usually type at the Google search the word : hockeyforums.net and then click on the Wild bear logo on the top of that link or I type the word: hockeyforums.net wild instead of typing the full weblink address:

https://www.hockeyforums.net/forum/43-minnesota-wild/   which linked to Minnesota Wild -Hockey Forums just to shorten my time and avoid mistakes during typing.

      Hello, I'm yet another (going on) former member of the soon to be defunct MN Wild forums making a move. Formerly #3 on the tree of post count at 25,424 but #1 with likes at 1,792 and counting    I hate rottenrefs! Which is why I originally joined the boards over there. Oh the irony.

      YAY!  A new home!   Another migrant here and I'm glad this new home is so friendly!  I was approaching 11k posts and mainly stick to GDTs for my posting.   I just don't like predicting and usually read and lurk until a comment is needed.   This place looks pretty sweet and great to see so many friendly faces!
