For those of you who were around last season, you know that sometimes, the Wild don't get much attention in the media. OK, OK, the Wild never get much attention in the media. The season previews look to be almost done, and once the 30-in-30 type posts end, most sites forget the Wild exist.
Which is fine, since most major media outlets seem to not be able to decipher that ultra difficult code of who is a center and who isn't. Still, it makes for some short Walks, and today, we have one of the shortest in recent memory. So, stretch really well, tie your shoes, take the Walk and then... well, I guess you might actually have to work.
