This is my first post here on Hockey Wilderness, so I just want to start off by introducing myself. My name is Dan, I'm from Wisconsin (as you can probably tell by my username), and I go to the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. I'm just so excited to get on to this bandwagon, as where I'm from doesn't have an NHL team. As most of you probably know, the players' vote for the CBA ends tomorrow. If there is a majority vote for it (which I'm sure will happen), the first game of this shortened season will be a week from tomorrow. Getting this CBA entirely ratified for me tomorrow would be awesome, as tomorrow is my birthday! As a fan who's just jumping on the Wild bandwagon, I'm going to be very excited to see my first Wild game!
