Another slow news day, today. I wonder if Colin Campbell knows that. I mean, if a slow news day led to the emails he sent being such a big deal, certainly he does something stupid again today, right? We can only hope.
The Walk has some slim pickings today. Nothing from Russo (except a blog update) or Brothers out there, and with both papers silent, it gives us little to aggregate for you. The team did not practice yesterday, but they did send Marco Scandella back to Houston. As Russo explains below, it's like a cap move. Nothing to get overly upset about.
Remember, we always have some discussion over on the Facebook Question of the Day, and you still have time to donate to the Hockey Wilderness Movember team. You can also vote in the fan confidence poll today through Wednesday, brought to you by SBNation Minnesota. Just slide the little arrow to your level of confidence in the team, and hit "Vote." Simple. Do it up. Results lock on Wednesday night.
