The NHL was stolen from the State of Hockey by Norm Green in 1993 when he moved the Minnesota North Stars to Dallas, Texas. With him, he took the team name, logo, and history.
With so many cities either getting to keep the team name or history of their former teams, it is time the State of Hockey get the North Stars' history of the franchise back through 1993 when the team left for Dallas, the old logo back (the N with the star above it), and the banners of the retired players back (Goldsworthy, Masterton, and Broten). You can see the banners of these beloved MN players hanging in Dallas' arena (http://pucksandpitchforks.com/files/2014/06/mike-modano-nhl-columbus-blue-jackets-dallas-stars.jpg
The NHL saw first hand what love Minnesota had for OUR North Stars during the Stadium Series weekend. It is time to for the NHL to give us back what is rightfully ours. Dallas can have the Stars from 1993 on. Before that, the history belongs to the State of Minnesota and the now Wild franchise.
Note: This is NOT a petition for the Wild to change their name to the North Stars. This petition is for the North Stars' history, retired number banners, and N logo to come back to Minnesota where they can reside in Xcel Energy Center. The Wild are our team now and we support them 100%! We simply want Minnesota hockey history to be where it belongs ... in Minnesota!
