Remember the recent nights of tucking in your children and excitedly telling them stories of the rebirth of our beloved Wild? When the golden boy returned home to lead his home state? When his buddy from across the border joined him in his quest to bring a Cup to the State of Hockey? When every awesome Wild prospect ever became even awesomer than we could have ever imagined? Remember???
Well none of that is going to happen. Poof. The dream is gone. Eklund has anointed the Wild "Next Year's LA Kings." We're screwed. Here's to four more years of groin injuries, concussions and Warren Peters. Huzzah!
