Wilderness Walk: Bored at Work Edition

For those of you that still have free time.... kiss it goodbye. Capgeek will take care of that.

Hey-dee-ho there, Wilderness. I'm not sure any of us REALLY have free time (or get bored at work)... but in case you do, check this out:

Capgeek.com will destroy your social life. Some people try to be "realistic" (hi there, Vanek and Miller). While some other people opt for creativity (as in, why not sign Bickell, Oshie, and Evander Kane).  One person (ok it was me) dreamed up a scenario where the Wild get Evander Kane, Phil Kessel, Andrew Ladd, Duncan Keith, and Teemu Selanne. Our esteemed Managing Editor Mr. Tony even made a contribution (yes that is Jesus H. Christ on the left wing).

Suffice to say: it's a good time. Check it out for some #hot #sprots #takes

The "End of Season Grades" Should be posted right around 10:00 this morning.

Also, there is a new episode of the podcast, if you missed it yesterday)
