Wilderness Walk for 2-25-2012: Farewell Zidlicky Edition

What should we talk about today? Hmm... the best way to make a chocolate cake? The best route to take when 35W is backed up?

The story today will be the trade of Marek Zidlicky to the Devils. It will likely make the rounds of all the national sites, with analysis and breakdown. Especially because it involved an east coast team. Ammaright? It really is too bad that Mark Idiocy won't be around anymore, but such is life.

The Walk is dominated by Zidlicky news, but as it turns out, there was also a hockey game played. Who knew? Enjoy your day. We'll be back with our own take on the move in about an hour.

Enjoy your day.

Vote - Time to vote for Defending the Blue Line. It's what Zidlicky would never have done.
