The best part of being from Minnesota is the fact that hockey is widely loved, widely played, and the sport is something anyone can speak about. From youth sports and non contact, to college and juniors and every sort of hockey from professional and for fun, you can find hockey in Minnesota.
We love hockey, and have loved hockey for many decades. The point is, we should never have lost the North Stars and have needed to have them replaced with The Wild. However good the Wild will ever be or has already been, the North Stars were the best team in hockey for the fact that we felt they were ours.
