Wilderness Walk for 1-12-2012: Game Day Edition

This and that, as a matter of fact, she hasn't had a day to relax...

Come on now. Everyone needs to plug in a little Jack Johnson (no, not the Kings D-man), or some Bob Marley and just relax a bit. One Yahoo message board post this morning says the Wild should trade Mikko Koivu for Marc-Andre Fleury. Yeah. Really. Come on.

It is game day, once again. This time against the We love the Hawks, yeah we always loved the Hawks. This is going to be a fun rivalry next year when the... oh wait. Never mind. Still, these two teams play some fun hockey when they get together, so the game should be entertaining, if nothing else. Maybe we can even see a shootout move that isn't even really so much a move as a lack of moving.

We can hope.

Your Walk is a fun one. Players anonymously calling each other over rated (hopefully from their respective mom's basement), NHL.com being passive aggressively anti-Wild... all kinds of fun.
