*Colorado Avalanche fans hate the Minnesota Wild with all the passion previously reserved for our former rivals, the Detroit Red Wings. My own loathing of this team runs hotter than 1,000 burning suns. It’s also been well-documented on this site — just search for the Wild in the search bar above if you’d like some “light” reading.
I am therefore not going to wax poetic about these alternate NHL jerseys. There is a picture above. You see what number they have on this list. Though it is against writing principals to do so, I’m going to ask you to make your own conclusions in this case.
Dear Minnesota Wild fans, this will be the closest I ever come to praising your team — enjoy!*
