So, as you'll be able to see, without the Defending the Blue Line Charity Game to talk about, the Wild-related content is staggeringly lower than it was last week.

So it's up to you, commenters! I'm going to ask you leading questions and suggestions in order for you to get some good ol' fashioned dialogue going on amongst yourselves. Like Smokey the Bored Hockey Fan once said "Only YOU can prevent offseason lulls."

So, now that it's quite apparent that I've not-much to say, stay tuned for the Wednesday Boogie With The Noogie, and on to the Walk.
