We've entered the post-season, Wild fans. The playoffs don't start until Wednesday, leaving us to our own devices for the next couple days. This can only end well, I'm sure.
Today is a good day to ask a couple of questions, and see where the Wilderness is at. First on the list - who are each of you pulling for in the playoffs? Anyone but the Canucks? Picking an underdog? Looking for a repeat from the reigning champs?
The 3rd Annual Bracket Challenge will come your way later today, so start prepping your brain for that.
Next question is... What would you like to see this summer here at HW? We will have some season recap stuff, draft goodness, free agency, development camp, and training camp, of course. Is there something you would like explored over the loooooong summer ahead of us? Drop us a note via email, or leave your desire in the comments. We'll see what we can do to work it out for you.
Welcome to the second ring of hell, folks.
