Does losing Loui Eriksson to gain the seemingly immature Tyler Seguin make the Stars better? - USA TODAY Sports

A month and a half from the offseason's finish line. Can we make it?

Much like the Suck Cut, August for hockey fans certainly does suck. It's sucking my will to live. It it were a president, it'd be Herbert Hoover. I can't wait until the moment we can all say "Game on!" ("Game on!")

Yeah, we've only got something like 42 more days, but it certainly does suck right now. Luckily, we do have some news and articles on our docket today, so let's dive into that.

Wild News

Hitting The Post: Where's Dany?- Where Dany at? Yo, String? Where Dany at? Where Dany at, String, that's all I want to know. String? String? WHERE THE FUCK IS DANY, STRING?!?!

Meet the Dallas Stars--Who Left the Lone Star State? - Gone Puck Wild- Did Dallas get better or worse this offseason?

Off the Trail

Who Is Left in the NHL Free-Agent Pool? - The Triangle Blog - Grantland- Who can the Wild afford?

Brad Boyes, Ilya Bryzgalov, other best remaining NHL free agents | Home Ice - SI.com- Should the Wild make a play at anyone still available?

Can a lower budget be an advantage? | Backhand Shelf | Blogs | theScore.com- No. It shouldn't be anyway. It should always be an advantage to have more resources, it's just a question of whether your General Manager can utilize them wisely.

Identifying the 10 "offensively annoying" NHLers you’d least like to play on an off-day | Backhand Shelf- Perhaps a Wild player shall I seek?

Pass or Fail: San Jose Sharks new home, away jerseys | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- I honestly didn't realize what the difference was. When I read it, it made sense, but it didn't move the needle for me all that much. It's a pass, but It maybe gets a C.

Jaromir Jagr: ‘It looks like it will be my last season’ | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- If Jagr could play at 42, why couldn't Kovalchuk have? That was a totally plausible deal that enabled us to get Zach Parise! Stupid NHL for doing their stupid NHL things!

Teemu Selanne: ‘By next week, I know what I’m going to do’ | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- Just let us know whenever, I guess.

Ottawa Senators, National Hockey League of Nations | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports- Another young expansion-type team's league of nations.
