Is it October yet? Why yes, yes it is. And welcome back, October, we missed you dearly.
Last night was another loss for the Wild, another blown two goal lead, but of course, all eyes are on the Taylor Fedun injury. There is a great deal of discussion of it out there, and if you want to seek it out, feel free. 99.9% of it all says the exact same thing, and only a very small portion believe Eric Nystrom did anything wrong.
So there is that. The next step is obviously recovery and rehab for Fedun. We hope he can learn from Wild fan favorite Kurtis Foster and persevere through this.
