Wilderness Walk: 5-20-2013

I've made a huge mistake. - USA TODAY Sports

The Wild finally get a price on James Sheppard!

We're running late, Wild Fans, so short and sweet is how we're playing it today: On to the Walk.

Wild News

Ex-Wild Players Still In The Hunt For The Stanley Cup - Gone Puck Wild - A Minnesota Wild Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More- Well, at least someone is.

First Round Bust: James Sheppard Is Worth The 81st Overall Pick- Perhaps a pick the Wild could use to trade up into the second- or even first- round? Flahr and Fletcher have always been about quality over quantity at the draft.

Off the Trail

Brent Seabrook scores the winner, and it counts, as Blackhawks take Game 7 in OT (Video) | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- Good news for the Wild and the NHL. The Wild, because it would have looked all kinds of bad if they couldn't put much of a dent into Chicago, but the 7th seed could knock them out. The NHL because it'd be very, very hard to argue that the four best teams aren't still playing in the playoffs come Conference Finals time.
John Tortorella fired as NY Rangers coach; did Henrik Lundqvist pull the trigger? | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- The big news of the day, non-ice division. And perhaps even in addition to the on-the-ice stuff, since it's NEW YORK. This headline makes me imagine Lundqvist commanding the Sweedish Mafia to send Sather his kids' head in a bowling ball bag to make him fire Torts, but I guess that's just because I'm a hopeless romantic.
The New York Rangers have fired John Tortorella, and that’s the right call | Backhand Shelf | Blogs | theScore.com- Justin Bourne lends his take on why Tortorella just doesn't work for long in the NHL.
Rangers GM Sather on Tortorella firing: ‘Every coach has a shelf life’ | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- This offseason is shaping up to spawn more stories about other successful head coaches the Wild could have gotten in leiu of hiring/firing Yeo. Add Tortorella to the list after Ruff, Vigneault, and potentially Tippett.
John Tortorella’s greatest media rants as NY Rangers coach (Video) | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- Remember teh asshattery that was John Tortorella v. The Media.
Mark Messier, New York Rangers head coach? | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- What kind of joke of an organization installs a franchise legend as their coach(/eventual GM) seemingly merely because he's a franchise legend?
Taarof and Daniel Alfredsson | Backhand Shelf | Blogs | theScore.com- On Alfredsson straying off-script at a press conference.
