Wilderness Walk 9-30-2013: Three More Days Edition

The Kaptain! - USA TODAY Sports

Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy!

The Minnesota Wild have made their final roster cuts over the weekend and apparently some folks out there seem to be offering Mike Yeo some unsolicited advice. I'm no expert in the matter, but I'm pretty sure we've distanced ourselves enough from the moment Jason Zucker was sent to Iowa that the world is in fact not going to implode upon itself destroying everything you know besides Greg Zanon's beard.

Phew, for a moment there I was worried. Now I can get back to not watching the series finale of Breaking Bad.

So the Wild finalized their roster on Sunday and their lineup for Thursday's season opener at the Xcel Energy Center against the Los Angeles Kings. That gives you a few days to relax and attempt to get over the traumatic weekend.

Smile Wilderness, it's a great week to be alive! The Vikings won and you don't have to pay attention anymore, the NHL 2013-2014 regular season starts tomorrow!
