The Minnesota Wild have been a fun team to watch these past ten years. They don't score a ton of goals; they don't have any big-name flashy players.
They just get the job done.
The Wild could've been the Blue Ox, the Freeze, the Northern Lights, the Voyageurs, or the White Bears, but although those names weren't bad, they didn't seem right.

Although the Wild aren't the best team in the league, they've pleased their fans (or, at least, me).
This slideshow recognizes those players who made it possible.
