Your walk today is a bit lengthy, but be calm, there are lots of pictures.
Camp continues to move right along with two days in the books and another full day of practice today. The first game comes up on Wednesday, after which there will most definitely be some movement on the roster. With that in mind, read up on the news from the folks who cover the minors. There are going to be some healthy battles after Wild camp breaks.
Enjoy your day, all.
