Wilderness Walk for 2-2-2010

As I typed the date in the headline, I thought to myself, "Man, there must be some kind numerology BS with all those 2s." We'll find out later, I guess, but I don't see it.

By the way, happy Groundhog Day, the only holiday more made up than Valentine's day. In case everyone missed it, PETA wants to replace Puxatony Phil with a robot. Yes, please, make it even more of a farce. Morons.

If you can't tell, I'm stalling. I don't have much for you today. Seems all the crazy people write about trades and not the Wild. Dirty rats, I tell ya.Anyway, here are your links for today. Enjoy.

Wild News:

Wild's trade talks on back burner | StarTribune.com - Hmmm... I don't know if I like the idea of not selling, but In Fletch We Trust, right?

Brett Burns brings old spark back to ice, just in time for Minnesota Wild - TwinCities.com - A rather nondescript article from the Pio today. Blah.

Game Day Enemy Newspaper:

Dallas Morning News & beat writer Mike Heika.

Other things:

Ms. Conduct: Quick hits: Two doses of hockey - Ms. C. A daily must read, I'm telling you.

Hitting The Post: NHL Recap 2-1-10: Sid tricks Sabres; Canada's long national nightmare ends - NHL Re-cap, including some praise for Sidney Crosby. Which I'm OK with, because Sid netted me a hat trick last night.

Jokinen Deal:

The deal finally went through. Here is some reaction.

Olli Jokinen trade finally official for Flames, Rangers - Puck Daddy - NHL Blog - Yahoo! Sports - Wysh gives us his take. Pretty good summary of the feelings on both sides.

Rangers News: Rangers official trade Chris Higgins and Ales Kotalik for Olli Jokinen and Brandon Prust - Blueshirt Banter - Rangers fans = happy.

Cgy-NYR trade call is happening now. Deal is exactly as @DarrenDreger reported it last night -... - Matchsticks and Gasoline - Flames fans = not so much.

Yep. Another day of news just flowing out of our ears. Get back to work, I guess. Sorry.
