Wilderness Walk for 1-13-2012

David McIntyre kicks off the 2012 Search for Pride event.

New Minnesota Wild ticket promotion: One free 30 minute session with a psychiatrist with every ticket purchase.

Mike Yeo is angry, fans are angry, you have to imagine the GM and owner aren't pleased, and the players... well... they're... quiet. The comparisons will have to be drawn to last year's team, which really is too bad, but the collapse is similar, if earlier in the season. The test for Yeo is great, and no one outside of Edmonton wants to see him fail in this challenge.

It really is mind boggling at this point. Play 50 minutes of the system, dominate the Sharks, then quit for ten minutes and nearly lose. Play the system for the first ten minutes against the Hawks and dominate the game, then quit and get blown out. Earlier this year, I was asked "Why are the Wild so good?" My only answer was that they had bought in. At this point, they have sold out.

Sad, really.

Short Walk today, but we have some fun planned for the day, so stick around.

Captain Koivu in first All-Star Game | StarTribune.com - Clearly deserved. Now... win?

Yeo irate about Wild road loss | StarTribune.com - Good. He should be.

Wild's warts are in full view after loss to Blackhawks - TwinCities.com - Yep. Drop a house on someone already.

The fall of the Wild | Sports | Jock Itch | The A.V. Club Twin Cities - The AV Club picked an odd time to start talking Wild, but so be it.
