Wilderness Walk for 9-17-2012: Bring the Pain

Random search term of the day: biscuit. It gets you guy grabbing crotch while playing ping pong.

If I recall correctly, today would have started a handful of training camps around the league. That, obviously, is not happening. You can bet canceled preseason games will be shortly behind.

Good times.

Our Walk is relatively short today, since yesterday saw nearly every site that covers hockey delivering the same news we brought you. There were some highlights, so we'll include those. Since there also seems to be some question as to who the fans are blaming for the lockout, we'll have our own poll. Apparently, the polls running at the 200 other sites running polls, all with the same result, weren't good enough.

We all know the Wilderness is the only group to ask, so we'll ask. Enjoy.
