Minnesota Wild games are a lot of fun and I’m glad they’ll be playing again in 2005. The Xcel energy center has great sight-lines and is a beautiful arena. In the first few years of the franchise, the fans at Wild games didn’t have too much to get excited about and the atmosphere could occasionally get very dead. But a team has developed and some favorite players and rivalries have come along, and now these games are really prime. The prices are intimidating, but if you buy early in the season, some more affordable upper-deck seats are possible to buy.
