They might worry that their fans prefer this to watching hockey, though.

Part Two Of Blueshirt Banter's Q&A With Hockey Wilderness - Blueshirt Banter

+

The Wild had the best record in the NHL for some time last year. Then you guys spiraled out of control quicker than Martian Brodeur at an all you can eat buffet (this is a BSB joke from when Sean Avery called Brodeur "fatso"). Now you have a lethal goal scorer, and a premiere defenseman, how does this change your expectations for next year?

Nice read from Ben Goessling of the Pioneer Press. The quote to end all quotes from Zach Parise is found above, but the article is a good read, so go check the whole thing out. (stick tap to Pro Hockey Talk on this one)

Part One Of Blueshirt Banter's Q&A With Hockey Wilderness - Blueshirt Banter

+

I'm not sure if you guys remember, but a few years ago the SB Nation hockey websites paired up and did a Q&A session during the offseason to help break up the dog days of August. Back in 2009, our partner was Hockey Wilderness, SB Nation's Minnesota Wild blog. This year? We got Hockey Wilderness, SB Nation's Minnesota Wild blog. And you know what? That's not a bad thing. We still have Marian Gaborik, they just took Zach Parise away from the New Jersey Devils -- thanks for that, by the way -- and also added Ryan Suter to boot.

Disalmanac - Edmonton: Almost Like a City

In case you needed a little chuckle today, Disalmanac pokes some fun at that place in Canada that for some reason has a hockey team. The jury is still out on whether or not it is professional hockey, but they do have hockey.

Marthaler: An NHL CBA Open Letter

9
If there's another lockout, if your hardheaded negotiating strategy causes more hockey games to be cancelled, I promise you right here and now that I will ignore the NHL at least until the first TV timeout of the first game of the regular season. Oh yes, Mr. Bettman. You won't like that, will you? That first few minutes of halting, opening-game hockey - you can kiss that goodbye. We hockey fans will be ignoring the TV. You might as well give away those ads for free, right up until 7:25 p.m., when we glance at our watches and say, "Well, maybe I'll just check the score." Welcome back to SB Nation Minnesota, Mr. Marthaler. You were missed. Anyone agree with Jon? I know I do. They can do whatever they want, and they know they've got me by the seat of my pants. Le sigh.
