Wilderness Walk for 2-9-2012: Game Day Edition

Late starts to the things you really want to do are horrible. Apologies on the monstrously late Walk.

Tonight should be fun, right? That's the word we want to use? Fun? Roberto Luongo is benched in St. Paul. Again. But it's small sample size and AV would never doubt his goalie's abilities. Or, so I'm told. Truth is, the X is a house of horrors for Bobby Lu, and his coach knows it. I wouldn't bet he never starts here again, after all, his contract runs through 2057, so the law of large numbers applies.

I would bet he gets chased in his next start here, though.

Quick Walk today, so you weren't missing much with my tardiness. Enjoy the day, if we don't talk between, we'll talk to you for the game.
