Wilderness Walk for 1-25-2013: Game Day Edition

This guy just picked a snowball fight with you. - David Rogers

Anyone need some time killers?

The Red Wings welcome the Wild in tonight. There will be a game thread later. Good times.

We will be introducing more new writers to the staff soon, as well. Three new folks will be handling the Walk going forward, and we have another writer joining the staff to provide some new content we have never had before. I, for one, am very excited to have these new writers joining the staff. The site is growing quickly, and we need to stay ahead of that particular curve.

We hope that all of the new blood coming in does not change your opinion of the site. If anything strikes you as a slip in the quality you have come to expect, please don't hesitate to mention it. Unless you are a "realist," in which case, save it. We don't care.

On to the links.
