There was a game the day before yesterday, and yet, somehow, it feels like last week. Maybe it is because I haven't been able to watch them in a week. That could be it. Nah.
Another leisurely Walk today. I told you a few days ago that if the Wild win, and remain in the playoff race, they will be in the headlines across the league. The promptly went on to lose two games and drop to tenth. That translates to less coverage as they again drop off the radar of the "national" media.
Oh well. We'll entertain ourselves, right? Right. We have the Question of the Day on Facebook. We have Defending the Blue Line's Skate for the Troops. We have FanPosts and Fan Shots. We also have a near dead heat in the semi finals of the NHL's Worst Rule Contest. If you haven't voted, vote now. You vote matters here, unlike in a real election. Finally, don't forget to check out Dan's February Prospect Rankings (post directly before this one).
