Wilderness Walk for 2-2-2012: Game Day Edition

No surprise, most of the talk around the NHL sites is about Marek Zidlicky. We meandered through a few of them, and brought you the best. Some talk about if they would want him, others simply bring up his availability. Some doubt his availability. Let's be clear on this. He is available, and with immediacy.

Other than Zidlicky, there was plenty of talk about The Meltdown, too. Sprinkle in a little Heately talk, some former Wild draft pick chatter, and talk about the *barf* shootout, and you have a hefty Walk today. You're going to want to stretch. At bare minimum, you might want to bring a beer with. Yes. At 9AM. Just do it. Breakfast of Champions. Other tagline here.

Enjoy your day.
