There's plenty of doubt, actually.

That being said, if the Wild ever become a true contender, Minneapolis/MN will become a top 5 hockey city for the NHL all over again. As it stands, the team doesn't invest enough to become legit champs, and everybody knows it, and that pi$$es people off. The "real" hockey is the stuff you see on the ponds, in high school, and colleges. This is where I see the best hockey I've ever seen, regardless of skill level.
That's really sad and kinda true among the Minnesotans I met! Many folks are still hung up about the North Stars though I hope that if the Wild get better and become contenders, that will change! But the mere fact they can still sell out most games and etc despite this division in the hockey fanbase and the team's mostly lackluster record should attest to how deep the hockey market is! I can only imagine what having the following - WINNING a Stanley Cup, have a record to be proud of like many of the other big hockey cities in the US and having several generations of fans - would do for the State!
