Wilderness Walk: Football's Over! Edition

Adam Hunger, USA TODAY Sports

Hello, Wilderness!

You may be wondering why I'm doing today's Walk and not Aaron. That's because I'll be shredding up the slopes of the Lutsen Mountains. Because of that, him and I decided to exchange spots for this week.

Anywho, enough of that talk.

As many of you now know, yesterday was the Super Bowl, and with that, the NFL season is now finally over. This means that we can all devote our full attention to hockey! Not only that, but attendance at games in markets like Denver should see a giant increase now.

Also, we're now getting that much closer to the Olympic break, as the opening ceremonies commence in 3 days now, on February 6th. None of the NHL teams will be there to participate, as we will have one more week of NHL hockey. The Wild will have 2 more games (both at home), tomorrow against the Lightning, and then Thursday against central division rival Predators.

Just a forewarning before getting to today's links; with these past 2 days being off days for the Wild, the main section won't be laden with links like it usually is. If any sort of news comes out later in the day, feel free to post any links you find in the comments below.

Until then, let's take a walk...
